I'm a bad kid, and I will survive.. on a budget of leather and feathers

Thursday, June 9, 2011



What I wore today: Topshop leather jacket, Cue feather pads, Vintage shirt, Red scarf (unknown), Cheap Monday Jeans, Jeffrey Campbell boots, Mui Mui sunglasses, MAC St. Germain lipstick

Sometimes its so expensive to be in fashion! I work in the fashion buying industry, and I've learnt that you get what you pay for. So I think I did the right thing in paying abit of money for these feather pads. I love them so much, you can unpin them and pin them to any garment. They cost quite abit though... for feather pads. I purchased them for $80 from Ebay, but they were a very rare item so I happily payed for it (and then ate tin food for a week)
But still no regret! They instantly change the look of my jacket. I've also tried them on an array of simple t-shirts and my blazers. They stand out so much!
It helps me justify buying plenty of dirt cheap t-shirts and singlets on my small budget so I can customise them with these feathers. If its unique and not many people have this look, I mean, why not?

I took this photo on purpose in front of a truck labelled "budget" (Get it, get it?)
