This closet voyage is all about navigating from obsession to obsession, leaving behind those that don’t fit with the ‘me’ that I want to be in that moment. As much as I consider myself as having graduated from my Japanese kawaii phase, sweetly cute things just get me every time. Hence my fixation with local Canberra fashion label Wnd.Lnd. They just kill me with their whimsical creations – their A/W ’14 collection was all about ice cream. My heart wanted, while my mind was saying ‘where are you going to wear that?’. Well, sometimes you just have to go with the heart.
As ostensibly impractical as a fluffy pink T shirt is, there’s a part of me that is convinced it can have a place in a mature, minimal, adult wardrobe. After all, pastel pink is currently the new white (which was the new black), and I’ve been forever wanting to do an all over pastel pink look. Just as well that I had a fluffy pink T shirt in my wardrobe at the same time as a pastel pink latex skirt (thanks to Missguided). I’m still not at the stage of extending pastel pink to my footwear, but a pair of white heels is, in my book, a wardrobe staple.
