Interrobang Art & Fashion Sunflower Skirt

Bright, gorgeous, FUN! These are just some of the words that I use to describe Interrobang Art & Fashions delightful Sunflower skirt! I stumbled across this beauty whilst searching for sunflower related items on Etsy to add to my summer wardrobe and bought it instantly. I've never really liked printed fabric (preferring appliqué) but something about this design just struck me, I think it's the way the sunflowers all blend together as one big, bright, design instead of being spaced out. This has become a staple for summer as it's so loud I can wear it with simple breastfeeding singlets without looking plain. I even made a equally as loud headband to match. Yellow is not a colour I have ever worked with so it has been a very refreshing addition to my wardrobe.
Made of a lightweight cotton in a circle style, it is lovely and cool in the warmer weather, but doesn't blow and give the undies flash whilst getting the kids in and out of the car. It's easy to move in s…

Colours and themes
I feel that I cannot fully explain my works in progress with you all without first explaining how I construct my outfits. For many years I mostly wore black and purple, I saw Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne in the live action Scooby Doo movies wearing all purple and wanted to emulate her. Of course, back then the hand made clothing market was not as awesome and explosive as it is now, so finding all purple everything (especially matching shades) was impossible, so I ended up mixing in some black to make it workable. Last year I realised that I had been wearing the same colours for approximately ten years, it's time for a change. 


This new wardrobe project is also my way of forcing me out of my comfort zone, forcing me to work with colours I've never used. Thus far, the hardest part has been that my entire wardrobe no longer matches, I need to find the particular top that goes with the particular skirt. But that's ok, I'm working on a way to make it f…

A perfect place to start this blog is Leafy Creations, a Melbourne based pixie clothing store run by the lovely Amanda. I was ecstatic to stumble across this brand whilst doing my usual rounds of hunting etsy for fairy clothes as it is EXACTLY what I am after! The idea behind it is the clothes actually look like they are cut from a plant, rather than just having plant images on them, it reminds me of the Fairies in the Tinkerbell movies (of which my two year old and I watch on a daily basis). In this post I will be specifically reviewing the Leafy print tank top and the Leafy print mini skirt as that is what I currently own. Leafy products are also ethically made over seas or by Amanda herself.

The leafy print tank top is absolutely brilliant as it solves the biggest issue that I have with most custom made "festival clothes" and that is it's not a halter neck! It is unbelievably hard to find tops that are singlet or tank top style, let alone ones that can…
