Dress is Glitters for Dinner | shoes are Golden Ponies | bloomers are wholesale (super old) | hair clip is c/o Sarsparilly
This was the outfit I wore to the International Women's Day March in Sydney on the weekend! For some reason, Saturday was a day where many strangers were just really confused about my outfit. Three times I was asked if I was dressed up for a party or special event. "No..." I replied, "I just wanted to dress like a sailor today," which seemed to confuse people even more. What's weird about wanting to dress up like a sailor? Have I really moved that far away from "mainstream" fashion? Is Sydney just really boring, fashion-wise? Or do people just not get "nautical"??
So I'm about 80% sure that I'm going to be changing my blog name. In fact, this came about because it was miss-spelt in this (wonderful) zine that I contributed to the other day as "Pin and Needle Collective", and I went "hey. Hey now. Pin and needle. Like sewing! Oh my glob! That's way better than Pineneedle Collective!" I have also never really liked Pineneedle Collective (and never thought anyone would end up reading this, so I didn't bother choosing a good name...), and this small name-change would also let me keep the same domain name, which was one of the major issues preventing me changing my blog's name in the past! So, what do you guys think of Pin & Needle Collective? It can even be thought of as "Pin e Needle Collective", and I can pretend that I'm being fancy and Italian (because "e" is "and" in Italian). There's a very tenuous connection there, don't worry, because my boyfriend is Italian and I totally visited Italy last year...
But I don't know. There's still 20% of me that's grown quite attached to Pineneedle Collective. So let me know what you guys think. I want to hear from both people who've been reading along for a while, as well as people who've only just discovered my blog! You will definitely help me to make up my mind.
I hope that you're all having a wonderful week thus far,
