If I Flap Fast Enough

If I flap fast enough//

Being a teen in the 80’s this was the done thing, stretching our sweater sleeves as long as we could, and then shoving our thumbs into a hole we made in the sweater. No consideration for the money spent on the cardigan by our parents, and never thinking we would get into trouble at school, as we are a uniforms country down here.

So seeing this sweater by Amrie was a must have moment. It was a time when you still had all those dreams about what you would do when school was over, what you could be when you grew up…and still under the impression that growing up and being an adult was going to be cool, and fun and less responsibilities than homework and chores. HA!

The whole look kind of resembles that time, and also reminds me of one of my favourite shows ‘Girl Meets World’. I love this show, I do not think there has been one episode that has not made me cry. I of course watched the original ‘Boy Meets World’ and they could have really messed it up, but they nailed it, and I am glad such a show exists for younger watchers. I felt like there was a whole decade or more of t.v that no longer covered real issues kids face in growing up, without having to be so adult in nature. It is fun, it is light, and the two girls have a fun fashion sense.

So I am channeling my Maya today, and with these very cool looking glasses by Minimal, that have a very old worldly aviator goggles kind of look to them, I reckon that if I flap hard enough, maybe I can make magic happen.

Also loving on these cool denim shorts by Gizza, with the partially unbuttoned look, that just screams too much comfort food, and time to slouch on the sofa and veg for the day…again that imagination of no responsibilities running wild. I teamed the look up with these great new Low Sneakers by Maitreya. I am wondering where the 41 size went, this stopping at 39 thing hmph (just kidding, size matters not when fitting to feet) and the feet options are both Maitreya flat and Slink flat, so you are very much covered for wear, if you have either, or both.

There are many great options to choose from if you go fatpack, and such fun little details, like zebra print, one does not always know one needs zebra print, until it is there as an option. As usual with Maitreya’s super attention to detail, they are not crisp and straight out of the box looking, they are worn in and scuffed appropriately.

This hair is very cool, it has the side french braiding, and is a Spellbound gacha I picked up somewhere in my travels, I did not even know I had it as it was still in a box, unpacking more often needs to be a thing. I actually did search Spellbound in my inventory though, as I had not worn them in forever.

Pic was taken over at Crestwick Island which is a fun town for shooting pics.
