Winter in Sydney usually means one thing; a lot of rain. I forgot about this until I realised most of my shoes ended up soaked after a big lot of rain over a few days. Seeing that I’m not really a gumboot kind of girl, I decided to show two other types of ‘gumboots’ which are more my style.
I have worn gumboots, once when I was about 10. I managed to fill them while I was wearing them…making it v v hard to walk and look cool!
Mollini – Galosh Ocelot/black
Looking more like an ankle boot we have the Mollini Galosh in Ocelot. I love this boot! Its rubber and has elastic gusset panels, the leopard print is a nice change from black. Perfect for festivals or walking around the city. $59.95 from here
Melissa – Solider II
Next we have Soldier II from Melissa. What’s not to love about this boot? A military inspired
ankle boot with chunky sole and tread and 11cm heel height made from plastic! Ticks all my boxes. $195.00 from here
Melissa Soldier boot and Koi Fish leggings from Blackmilk are always a winning combination
So after checking out Streets Ahead exhibition I decided to do a few style ups with artwork
as inspiration. Here’s the first, who knew a bear graphic could get all girly. Did I mention how
much I lurrrrrrrvvvvvvveee United Nude shoes? Uh huh they’re ah-mazing.
When I heard that Vivid was holding an exhibition of Street Art called Streets Ahead I had to check it out. The artworks are from six Streets Ahead creatives who are not only greats in the Streetwear industry, but who also shared their expert knowledge in the Streets Ahead talks and conferences.
Don’t ask me why but my eye was drawn to a poster which read
“Die Hipster Die” I laughed a little too loudly at that one.
Armed with my trusty Olympus, I walked in and was hit with a barrage of colour and some intense big as** graphics. Don’t ask me why but my eye was drawn to a poster which read “Die Hipster Die” I laughed a little too loudly at that one.
