Aussie Curves Challenge: Hipster

When I think hipsters, I picture a book-toting, thick framed glasses wearing, vintage type-writer loving crafter who may be sitting in the local coffee shop writing the next great novel of our time. Or she could be Instagramming that perfect shot of her morning brew with just the right filter to give the photo some old world charm. Either or. 

Here's my translation of hipster through the lens of my wardrobe-

Please, do excuse the iPhone photo.

Cardigan- current stock Tempt $14.95 (XL)
Singlet- old stock Supre (XL)
Skirt- City Chic circa 2012 floral pleated dress (S)
Shoes- 2013 season Wittner black pony hair smoking slippers
Watch- Rose gold Michael Kors Sports Watch
Bracelets- Leather Hello Kitty cuff (random ebay store) equip tan leather headband worn on wrist
Necklace- Emmie & Eve polymer clay beads
Beanie- Sportsgirl $29.95
Glasses- someone left them at my house after a costume party. I think it was the person who came as Leonard from Big Bang Theory! Thanks, Leonard!
Close up of my hipster satchel, because it's my favourite!
I bought this when I was in Vancouver last year; it cost more than I could afford at the time but I'm so glad I did buy it. It's the perfect size to fit A4 books for uni, and has a bunch of different pockets. Cos I need somewhere to stash 5c pieces and muesli bars crumbs.  

Terribly grainy, but I  kept my makeup super simple for this one.

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
Maybelline Colossal Lash Mascara
MAC Sheertone Blush in Blushbaby
Custom lip colour mixed using:
 Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Macaroon and MAC LE Lustre Lipstick in Out To Please

Because I'm a Polyvore addict, and I have too much time on my hands, here is a fashion board for the Hipster theme.

This is what my imaginary hipster friend Maisy Littlebee is wearing. (Her real name is Mary Little, but her friends called her Maisy before ironic old-timey names were cool, so...)

Fox Jumper- $78 by Wild Fox Couture
Oxblood 13" classic satchel- $228 by Cambridge Satchel Company at Shopbop
Rust Oxford Ankle Booties- $34 at Overstock
Printed Skater Skirt in Navy Floral- $30 at Delia's
Bookclub Glasses $49.5 at Madewell
Lady Grey crochet knee high socks $4 from ebay (not currently avail in plus size)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Kitty Studs $38 from Zappos Couture

I'm loving the satchel; I know they've been around for ages but I still covet one. I adore the mint green, but it's no longer available on their website. And in reality- what would I wear it with? ASOS used to have a limited edition rose gold one that was divine, and was much more wearable. I've not had the cash to splurge on these bags, but if I did I would in a heartbeat!

  1. I think the satchel is pretty awesome too, and loving the beret :D :D

  2. Love this outfit! I recommend you wear it all the time!

    Just as a note, you only have to add one of the blog hop links, you'd probably just need the second one! Then you can go to someone else's blog and add your link in :) It's confusing at first!
