An apt description of the trend that swept the universe or so it seemed. Space prints have always been an elusive joy for me but since they have been lovingly adopted by the world, I almost want to throw a hipster tantrum and rebel. It's almost like Burberry's fatal attraction with UK chavs, when all of a sudden this expensive luxe brand started looked know different but was cheap by association.
I feel like nebula leggings have received the bogan welcome in Australia in the form of people wearing them as pants with an undersized crop top while smoking a cigarette out the front of a Westfield shopping center side exit. While I'm sure it's a beautiful picture I've painted in your mind, probably not one I want to stylistically align myself to.

Fortunately for me Sydney based label Evil Twin came out a skater dress in a gorgeous velvet that has so far not been ruined. Their special brand of grungy, punk skater style is to the extreme of main stream, like garlic to a vampire. Enough to keep me interested and going back for more. While for Australians, Market HQ might be your best bet, you International kids can enjoy Evil Twin on Asos. In fact, if the 'outer limits' velvet skater dress captured you like it did me, shop it right here.

Pairing one favorite Australian brand with others just makes sense and that's why my Limedrop necklace was a no brainer. Limedrop is the brainchild of designers Clea Garrick and Nathan Price who from their output, take their work seriously, without letting go of their playful nature. I've had the pleasure of meeting them at markets and my sister & I immediate bought far too much of their jewellery They've officially entered into the world of clothing which I've managed to show you a little of over here while visiting Mother & Father but I am so looking forward to seeing more of it. Let's hope I can keep my wallet to myself this time huh? If you haven't heard of them, definitely check them out, especially my fave and original loves here.
