Passion Fruit without passion

The quarter life crisis has been proven to be an actual thing.This sense of losing , lonesome feelings as the tides of adulthood pull you into the glowing depth of boredom. This melodic nature of the easy, the comfortable way of life…result in utter boredom is the death of the creative root of passion.

Where has my passion gone? Who took it? Did I take it ? Did I leave it somewhere? Do I even want it bacK? Or the real question am I just lazy?

Not so long ago I did, in fact, have what I thought to be, passion. But, much like the every glazing approach of life has stripped it away from me. Like the leafs fall in the autumn air that lacks in South East Queensland ( Autumn is not a thing).

I used to have this focused energy and exact idea of what I wanted to be….but, now it was gone. I wanted to somehow collude the worlds of my love affair of fine leather goods ( and goods in general), with the world of advertising. In my deluded mind, I would spend my days dressed in Prozner and Chole while coming up with million dollar idea. Strange I know….oh the hope.

Little did I fail to grasp my dramatically terrible English skills that I have been reminded of since my early schooling. The borderline dyslexic copywriter is never really going to take off or sell well. 

This mindset it way I sit here, confused oh so very confused and terrified that I will work in a bland cubical and spend my days looking spreadsheets.

A passionfruit without passion is just a fruit and even then that’s not that amazing. 

Kind regards, the passionless passion fruit that now tastes bland and dull

Suede all Mighty

Suede you magical leather. So lush and so delicate. The softer sister to leather. Worn by cool rockers and retro Queens. Now your on our door step telling us its time. Its suede time !

I keep having the reoccurring dream. In it , I am wearing the most devein hot pants ever seen in the history or not just hot pants but, pants. They are like most hot pants , amazing , but high waisted . But the hot pants of my dreams have ironically a dream like attitude for they are suede. But !!! it gets better not only are this gems a tan suede , but they are covered in fringes. And I wear this marvels of man kind with pride and a cashmere turtle neck , of course. I pretend I am a brown haired Stevie Nicks. And just have an all around wonderful time.

Now, dreams in some cultures are seen as proficies. And , it was to my pure joy , when I discovered and welcomed with wide open arm this glories trend of suede. When one is covered in suede you can be a hard core rocker or a peace love hippy , you can pick both if that your cup of tea.

So when your bring and phasing the suede , its all about picking the pieces that are you .You have to speak to the suede d, listen to it love it and it will in turn love you and let you land a hipster rocker with  Anna bun and full beard  Or me , its the mini and due to my obsession as reflected in my dream , anything with fringes. Why, have you ever danced in a fringed skirt, well let me tell you cause your clearly deprived of a truly wonderful moment , its amazing and you too look amazing more than normal.And ! they are a great time kill.

You could take the easy road to suede down aha boot route , but don’t be boring , pick a blouse, like the one from Zara here. If you want to slowly work into the club try this new topshop denim andudede finishing set, its to die for .You can also for our my experienced and devoted companies  do suede on suede, I myself can’t wait to do this, but need to source the right collection of suede. Never doubt seeded , that’s what I love about it. The softness of the fabrics and the way its drapes the body, I personal would love to see it come over to evening wear, I would buy it, I hope Chloe brings some out. ! Please Chloe please !

Confession from the weekend rave

tumblr_nf5nwwWjmn1t1prrio1_400tumblr_nf5nwwWjmn1t1prrio1_400

I like to go out , its fun! I get to drink, I get to mingle , I get to pretend I am French to get free drinks its great ! And most of all I get to dress up! However , this one particular night , I encountered one of the most interesting remarks from a drunken person. It was interesting to say the least.

Let me paint a picture, I was wearing my trusty fun as tweed hot pants from forever 21. They are amazing , I love hot pants, comfortable and they make your legs look amazing. Matched with a loose Zara stripped cotton tank and leather patterned oxfords, I was comfortable and personal thought I looked amazing, for a number of reason. Firstly, I looks pretty good just the right balance of riskaay, flirty and polished, just the right amount of spark to get me a free drink . I wasn’t dressed slutty, the outfit was a typical Claire outfit and from fellow friends , I received many complements on how I was nicely dressed. And secondly, I knew if I was a unique outfit, that was a bandage dress or something tacky that I would attracted decent people, its a none science.

Enter, some random drunken guy. Yes, he was cute. Yes, he was well dressed , I did like his watch , I would wear that.Conversation was okish, going along nicely until he says to me . ” your really hot, you know you would get more guys if you dressed cuter’

Now , let that soak in. My firstly response was , Yes ! I am now a successful man repeller and secondly, what a dick head. But, his comments made me think, does it all come down to the clothes or lack of clothing on my body ,are guys going to more  attracted to me if I wear the same thing as the girl next to me ?  Its seemed that bandage dress and a  life as sheep is the way to win some dick head heart. Now, I know I can’t change some party boys mind, cause to a degree he is very correct. And its sad that to be notified people think they must camouflage into the crowd. I say wear what you want , but first and for most wear it for yourself, never anyone but yourself and trust me you will be surprised by the result

The morning after

We all know the feeling the morning after a really good night out, one that you may have over stepped your judgement on what ever it may have been , but ooooh was it worth it ! However no morning after can compare to the Tuesday after cyber Monday. You have had a full on 5 days my friend, starting it of with thanksgiving ,followed by black Friday and then the whole weekend just rolled into buying everything in site, off and online.

Some of us my be buried m physical and mentally, are finger my be swore and we may still be fragile ,that is why you must rest, in your Egyptian  cotton sheets that where 30% offfff ! SCORE ! and rest it all off, maybe Piperlime will miss read your addressed and that shift dress you ordered will never arrive….. we can only dream Now, you may be left with some items that you are thinking ….” why the hell did I get this , I don’t even like purple” or ” what was in my Starbucks pumpkin latte that possessed me to buy these mint ear warmers, I live in Florida ! “. Its time to stop, rethink and evaluate if you actually won anything of value. Just because the lady in the Juicy sweat pants wanted that heavily discounted bad Marc Jacobs look alike bag for her 12 year daughter, doesn’t mean your going to like it. So listen here friends, this is what we are going to do ,

1. Keep all cashmere items , you will always wear them

2. Try everything you brought on , if some thing that may match, play around with things in your wardrobe. Now , if it doesn’t go with anything and its got you thinking, I should buy that cute Zara skirt it will go with it . DON’T ! You are poor now until Grandma gives you a Christmas coupon

3. Make a pile two piles, re gift and EBay . Use each wisely

4.Although  you may have made money on eBay ,do not go shopping until boxing day, give yourself and your credit cards a rest

Black Friday count down

Oh sale season I love you deeply , you are my everything. I dream about this week, I cross the days off my Calendar , maybe next year I will make my own chocolate count down calendar like the ones for Christmas. But , that one day a year ( well its grown from that into like 3 days) is near. I can smell the samples , I can hear people every where training for this day , memorizes there sizes in year brand , cut and style. Coupons fill the every person draw , ready for this day. Black Friday !

As, my normal pre black Friday goes, I scroll my favourite places , composing a list of all the things I will die without, marginally need and will become an impulse buy ( we must avoid these items). On top of my list of things that will improve my life by 5 % is these bad boys. Superga sneakers, not just any old sneaker , these amazing to die for ( I will go hunger games to get theses ) are cow hid / pony fur sneakers.I just need them , with cigarette jeans and a cashmere sweater and I am set for the happy season, cause with these on my feet I can take the world. Now I tell I need these as my friends, so don’t go buying them all on me now that’s just plan , rude. Now everyone go practice there reflects for the big day !
