Graduation night

My Grade 6 Graduation outfit (almost) didn’t cost a dime. As is the tradition, I was fashionably late. As I walked down the red carpet my fellow Year 6’s yelled “Go Tallulah!” “You Go Girl”. Oh, and I was the only one in high heels and Vintage.

All ready to go.

All ready to go.

  • Green suede 1950’s heels – my ‘unofficial’ first pair of heels. These Italian stilts were found at a closing down sale of a massive theatrical costume collection.
  • Kitten tattoo stockings – these plain skin-coloured tights had little kitten’s faces on the back of the calves. Cute!
  • 1950’s petticoats – Two vintage petticoats: one edged with orange, pink and yellow tulle; the other with white lace and blue satin ribbon.
  • 1950’s tea-dress – Hand-altered by mum, this fitted cotton dress had a low back and full skirt. It felt good to dance in. It was tight fitting and it made me feel like a superstar.
  • Black suede belt – Forget the little black dress (LBD), it’s the Little Black Belt.
  • Multicolour casein bead necklace – This was made around the corner in Easey St, Collingwood from milk byproducts before the second world war.
  • Pearl collar – The Audrey Hepburn-inspired faux pearl looked fantastic with the colourful casein beads.
  • Floral ‘Frida’ headband – A special gift from someone I love. On my birthday, I was a little unhappy, because i didn’t get a floral headband like this. Little did I know that I would get one specially made and presented to me on my Graduation Day.
  • Beaded gold handbag – You can never go wrong with a golden clutch.

My beautiful lengths.

Like the majority of girls, since birth, I’d grown my hair.

After Grade 6 Camp I was busting to rid myself of this stereotype.  The very next day, I went to my hairdresser, Deanna and had it all chopped off into a pixie cut.

pre-haircutDeanna starting..things get seriousno turning backdone!

I was determined to send my hair to ‘Beautiful Lengths’ to get it made into a wig for women who have had chemotherapy.  I’m happy that it can be put to good use.

My grandmother went through chemotherapy. She didn’t want to wear a wig – probably because it was not made of real hair – but I know a lot of other women who would.

A Very Fashionable Queue

These are two pictures of some amazing girls in their amazing outfits

I found this one of a kind girl right at the front of the queue but I could spot her a mile away . This was at Tavi’s talk so you can’t go wrong with a homemade flower headband. These extra cute retro glasses definitely match her lower cut doc’s which teamed with socks over stockings is the best fashion rule I have ever broken (and they are polka dots). This cute cut dress is met with a gorgeous green farmland country print (I”m not sure if its Eastern or Western?) and she went a little unorthodox by tieing the ribbon at the front.

This young lady waiting by the door had a natural, dark, animalistic vibe to her outfit. Hair mysteriously swept to the side with a leopard print scarf wrapped around her head, unseen a peach cardigan and an indian patterned deep brown, green and red blouse lurks beneath. Worn leather combat boots, a cord jacket lined with fur and and essential denim short gives this outfit a rustic feel. AND TO TOP IT OFF AN AMERICAN ACCENT makes this girl effortlessly cool.

Similarities:

docs, black tights, awesome attitude and both Tavi fangirls (why so much Doc Martens?)
