Orange is a funny colour. I don’t have many clothes or accessories in that colour, and sometimes “orange” is given a more interesting name like “pumpkin”, “tomato”, “persimmon”, or, in this case, I opted for “tangerine” (why are they named after fruits or vegetables?). I feel like I need to get creative with the names I’ve come up with for various Fashion Fridays – I have a lot of one-worded ones like Amethyst, Limeade, and Chevrons, and ones like Trash and Treasure, Black & Mixed Metals, Peach & Pearl.

Anyway, there wasn’t a particular reason I chose Tangerine here, other than for the orange coloured top. It’s a top that was handed down by my mum, which I think was a fairly affordable, light top that she bought overseas, since it doesn’t seem to be branded. The collar is a shredded array of thin pieces of material bunched together, each piece cut with a circle on the end. The entire collar looks resembles flowers or interesting leaves. […]

Today’s post is written by Nick. :) It is really new for me to have someone guest post on my blog like this – apart from interviews, no one else has had a chance to feature on my blog, so it’s pretty special.

I am not too sure how I came up with the name, but we decided that it was perfect. We would have found it difficult to make this a monthly thing, so we went along with a seasonal-based, quarterly segment. It’s nice to have something different from the usual girly things on my blog, especially since I love fashion – so I hope you like it.


First of all, I just want to thank Georgie for supporting me and helping me to find my sense of fashion, and also for inviting me to do a quarterly fashion post.

I must admit, I was a bit nervous but excited when Georgie first asked me to write a fashion post. Obviously the first question I had was, “What do I wear?”. I have a lot of clothes which would have been perfect for this post, but I settled on an outfit which I mostly constructed while I was travelling abroad in the US late last year. The shoot we conducted in the Hunter Valley Gardens on a recent trip to the Hunter Valley over the Easter long weekend. It was a great location, lovely gardens, and we luckily just missed the rain.

It’s been a pretty hazy past week-and-a-half.

I used to think very much in days, hours even – before thinking of my time in weekly blocks and noticing changes every week. Recently it has been a blur and all the days just seem to run into one another. I find myself forgetting what day it is or simply forgetting what I ate for dinner last night, or even forgetting what I ate this morning. The smallest things have become smaller, so much so that it doesn’t seem like they exist.

Recently I feared that I may have been in a dark place again. Things that used to cheer me up instantly now require more effort, and I am in a perpetual state of not really feeling like doing anything.

The good thing is, I found a handful of things that have happened in the past week that have made me laugh. […]

Photo of Emmie

I have been friends with Emmie, from the UK, for quite some time now. She goes in and out of web design and blogging but we still keep in touch. I consider her a strong and fearless but gentle and kind natured girl, who is really into art and cute stuff!

I’m a 25 soon to be 26 in July summer baby, making me a Cancer in the starsigns. I’m self taught in web and graphic design and I’m learning to make fluid WordPress themes. Stars, photography and art impact on my everyday life and keep me partly going due to the horrible curve ball I call ill health.

What is one thing that makes you completely, utterly, truly, ecstatically happy, and if you had it or experienced it right now, you might actually cry?

Favourite cartoon character?

Seb took care of this edition of Fashion Friday, which we shot at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney. It made for a pretty interesting shoot.

I wore mostly black, and a long sleeved top, because it was a fairly chilly day. My favourite part of the outfit is the skirt, which I have been meaning to include in a post for a while. I got it from Cue, and it might be a size up from what I normally wear, but it fits nicely. I prefer skirts that nip in at the waist, or that sit on the hips, but this one seems to be somewhere in between. It doesn’t really bother me. I love the pattern on the skirt and the fact that it goes out a bit.
