I've been anticipating the Aussie Curves Tribal theme for a while. I was planning on creating something fabulous out of all of the amazing tribal fabrics I own from Brixton markets in London - where I used to live.
I have managed to make this tribal top in the past and post it on the blog. Generally though, I just hoard fabric and never get round to doing anything with it. This time, my excuse is work: have been very busy over the last week - but I do PROMISE to do lots of exciting things with my fabric collection in future.....maybe :)
So instead of all the bright, colourful things I thought I'd be wearing for this theme, I decided to go to ye old faithful: BLACK
I was actually trying to emanate a celebrity here who's look at the recent VMA's I very much liked:

Yes, Rihanna! I think she has some really cool looks and I LOVED the giant jewellery, the headband, the colourblocking, the sheer fabric and the tunic over trousers in this look. It's really simple - but effective.
Here I've reversed the look by doing the sheer part on the bottom with this sheer split maxi skirt from Shitty Chic.
I also don't know if the headband and giant earrings are so much tribal as FLINTSONES but I don't care: dinosaur's are fucking cool anyway. The headband was just a cheapy one from rubi shoes and the giant beaded earring are from markets in Bangkok.
The beaded stretchy belt I picked up on my recent holiday to Bali. And the creepers are from Demonia via Clubwear Australia.
WARNING: Do NOT wear these creepers if you are prone to grogginess first thing in the morning and you try and do your blog photos in a rush before work. I accidentally trod on my cat's foot this morning while wearing these....and she's still not speaking to me :-p POOR PUSSCAT!
