It's the last first day of back to school for me... ever! This is probably the first year EVER that I didn't have a cute back-to-school outfit planned out the night before, instead I just let the Rei Kawakubo goth jams wash over me this morning while I picked out this polka-dotted poet's blouse, mullet maxi skirt and creepers.

The skirt is a recent DIY of mine, I just picked out a plain black cotton maxi dress from the thrift store, cut it up, sewed the hem and voila! a whole new silhouette. We'll have to see if my last year of school has a whole new silhouette soon enough...

Also, this is the last week to vote for me every day in the WhoInspiresU video contest!! I'm fighting for my life here in the top three so every vote I get is absolutely crucial. If you love fashion, feminism and smartass critiques of pop culture than you would love PLANT magazine. Get in on it!

Oooh, nice work with the skirt. I like the outfit. Ha, last first day of school hmm? I only have 5 weeks of my entire degree to go! but I'm thinking of applying for honours next year, and if I get in I'll have an extra year of University = extra year of avoiding reality. Good luck with the competition!

Angie Bitchface said...

hey I just wanted to say that I got your PLANT zine in the mail...a while ago actually...and I absolutely LOVE it!! you have really interesting and original ideas for articles. everything in there was great, my favorites were the "real style" feature and the article about sexist tea flavors (will never be able to drink Earl Grey again without thinking about that!) I've been voting for you every day and I'm excited to see future issues :)
