Daria & Jane Lane

jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-daria jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-daria jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-daria jessiekhoo-fashionandsounds-daria I spent alot of my late 90s – early 00s coming home after school & watching Daria. I was chatting to Ryan as to why this emo, outcast & misfit character was so popular and I think it’s because she was so relatable. This show pretty much took the piss out of the popular kids and portrayed them as empty-headed boobies & jocks. Perhaps this gave confidence to the misfits of the world to have someone with wit & character to root for, it’s for the under-achievers who just liked a little bit of grunge, going to gigs and watching sick sad world.

Shorty Ways

So don’t judge me if this outfit isn’t your cup of tea. I started up skating… or in reality… cruising… a few years ago. I’m yet to kick flip & drop in and let’s be honest I’ll probably never get the balls to do so, but who knows maybe I’ll get a 2nd wind of my youth… here’s to wishful thinking.

Today I’m wearing these runner shorts by Adidas that I picked up from their outlet store in San Diego. I like them because you can get away with gym wear being bright & bold because of all the endorphins you’re making and what not. I paired them with my totes trendy MINKPINK baseball crop top, Well Dressed Vandals hat – excited to sport their new get up, Victoria’s Secret PINK backpack which I also scored from San Diego and of course my navy Vans.

This is a post I’ve had since pre-spring and havn’t gotten around to posting! I love Vans and I got this tee from the Vans outlet store in San Diego for around $10… it’s actually a little boy’s tee so I just cut off the sleeves so I could get my arms through & matched it back with my foil printed MINKPINK jeans which I picked up from their warehouse sale for $10 as well… come to think of it this was a very cheap outfit haha. That’s until you add the accessories; MiuMiu top handle, small playa watch from Nixon, beanie I borrowed from a friend, Mimco chain bracelet, Tiffany & Co heart ring, MINKPINK sunnies & shoes from Urge.

Dye in Peace

Will the polar bears have anywhere to live?? I’m such a sucker and a loser. I can’t watch a documentary on animals without tearing up, feeling really sad and crying myself to sleep. I sign petitions for animal rescues and cares over any other. Ok now I’m ranting.

The whole point of this is that it may seem weird I’m wearing a summer dress in Winter but let’s be honest, it’s not really Winter. I’m obsessed with tie dye and I never really have the patience to DIY. I bought a DIY kit last summer and it’s still sitting in the boot of my car 10 months later. Lucky for me there is UNIF!

Wearing Unif Haighter Dress from ShopmarketHQ, Urban Outfitters floral platform sneaker creepers, Prada specs & beanie I stole from a friend.

I could spend all day here as there’s the gorgeous views of the harbour, a little cafe, a huge glass triangle which is a little reminiscent of the Louvre but it’s a greenhouse inside – which also reminds me of Jurassic park where they kept the dino birds (which seriously freaked me out when I was 7 years old…), palm trees (my fave) and a whole section dedicated to ferns?! random. But, I’m into it.

Today wearing Atmos&here dress I designed for The Iconic, Brandy Melville knit sweater, Sportsgirl hat, Zara sunnies & Dolce Vita booties from Urban Outfitters.

Unicorns Are Real

Yes, I firmly believe unicorns didn’t get Noah’s memo & missed the boat. Silly creatures. Today I wore MINKPINK’s Unicorn tee, Cassette Society acid wash shorts, beanie from Well Dressed Vandals, Windsor Smith boots from The Iconic, eyewear from Hot Topic & bag from Collette.

Plaid Is Rad

I always find it hard to wear skivvies in Australia – it’s not particularly a normal look as it’s never that cold, so how am I to incorporate this trend without looking like a toddler? I’ve gone and mixed it with camo prints, army greens, leather & studs. This look today is made up of my MINKPINK ‘Anarchy’ high neck tartan print crop top from Surfstitch, leather look Romwe skirt, vintage belt, studded sleeveless anorak inspired vest I designed with hints of camo print, beanie by Agent Ninetynine from General Pants, leather boots from Wittner and studded bag by 1&20 Blackbirds from The Iconic.

Tigers and Camo

I love mixing prints – that’s what’s so fun about fashion – there are no rules! (well there are ‘rules’ but aren’t they meant to be broken?) Today I mixed spots with tiger faces, leopard print and camo. The trick is breaking it up with neutrals and textured solids like this Brandy Melville knit sweater, maroon Asos beanie and 1&20 Blackbirds bag. In the print department I’m wearing my leopard creepers from Hype DC, Tigerama spot tee dress from 1&20 Blackbirds and Atmos&here Anorak both from The Iconic.

Some of the fondest memories of my 90s childhood include busting out the watercolours and colouring every surface I can find and making a great mess along the way. This jumper from Romwe makes me feel that happiness again & makes me feel like a big kid! Teamed with leather look skirt from Romwe, bag from 1&20 Blackbirds from The Iconic, beanie from Forever 21, Sunnies from Hot Topic and wedges from Aldo.

While enjoying some of the best acai yoghurt I’ve ever had, like ever, on the beach in California we took in the sun, the sand and all the people who made this place amazing & unforgettable.
Wearing a vintage romper, beanie from Forever 21, Backpack from Victoria’s Secret PINK, Heart sunnies from Hot Topic and the world’s best flip flop, Havaianas.
