Tropicana Win a $100 Gorman Voucher thanks to Poki Games

Boom it is suddenly so hot in Melbourne that you sweat out of places you didn't even think were possible, so out comes my mini skirts and bare legs combo so I can get through the day. It's always such a shock to the system that first day of non tights wearing to see your legs in all their pasty white winter glory out on display. I love this retro floral print skirt I picked up for $20 from the Clear It pop up outlet store on Swanston Street, I am really vibing retro floral's for this Summer and am on the look out for true blue vintage pieces but this modern take will have to do for now. It reminds me of this awesome wallpaper that my nana used to have in her kitchen when I was growing up. Her whole kitchen was orange, black and white with this bold retro floral wallpaper along one wall, it was very very cool. I bought my Comme Des Garcons t-shirt on my last trip to Tokyo but only just discovered it buried in one of my drawers - which reminds me - I am having a HUGE WARDROBE CLEAR OUT at the Evelyn Market this Saturday the 26th Nov from 12pm - 6pm. Come on down, have a bevvy and grab yourself a bargain!

How freaking AMAZING is my new Tropicana rainbow pink, peach and yellow hair by Blondies of Melbourne? I can't believe how much like a Calippo icypole my hair looks. Most definitely the coolest hair I have ever had! Oh and I have recently been using a pink eyeliner I bought in Tokyo to fill in my brows, what do you think?

My love of pom poms is never ending and these earrings are just the most adorable things ever.

This backpack is surprisingly roomy, I always use it when I stay over at friends houses.

Oh gosh, these shoes are the most beautiful shoes I think I have ever owned. They're so comfortable too thanks to Camper's amazing quality shoe making and an ultra modern innovative design. I am obsessed!

WIN a $100 Gorman Voucher thanks to Poki Games 



 I have always loved playing fashion games, from playing with paper dolls as a kid to a Barbie CD-rom game when I was a bit older, they've always been lots of fun to me. Obsessing over matching details, finding the right shoes for the occasion and getting my characters hair and makeup just so is a fun way to spend an afternoon if you ask me. I was surprised to find there there is a wide variety of free online fashion games at Poki, but of course my favourite has to be Shopaholic Tokyo. I mean how could I not love it when the opening paragraph basically describes me, why yes I am good at shopping and I do love to party, how did you know? ✿♥‿♥✿

 The game doesn't look like any Tokyo streets I've ever seen but the shops and styles available inside do look pretty much exactly like Tokyo. You'll find modern Harajuku style kimono's, Gothic Lolita looks, high school uniforms and punk rock styles all feature. The challenge of the game is to dress your character in the correct style for an event.

My first challenge was Lolita style, so off to Sweet Rose I went in search of the perfect Goth Loli ensemble to win the round.

 Of course I went with pink. I collected all my finishing details at the shops along the street and got ready for my close up.

When you've completed your look a street style photographer comes and takes your photo - just like in Tokyo!!! I won my round so I took home a $500 prize and accepted my next challenge - a high school girl style challenge. Follow my snapchat to see what I created @fashionhayley.

  1. Rockerbilly is by far my favourite subculture. They don't mess about. All those perfectly coiffed pompadours! �� X @vanduchess

  3. I quite like the Kodona or boy style of the Lolita subculture. The Victorian femme/masc dressing is really an interesting match.
    Thanks Hayley

  4. Oh, I love this post so much!
    My favorite Harajuku style is probably Decora, even though it's mostly morphed into other styles at this point. It influenced my style a lot in high school and still influences my color choices and love for abundant accessories!
    I really hope I win this because I've been drooling over lovely Gorman items for ages but still don't have any in my closet yet.

  5. Kogal Is so cute!!! I love the school girl look and their knee high socks. I fell in love with the Japanese school girl look when I went to Japan and now I can't get over my love of knee high socks!!

  6. I'm all about bright colours when it comes to fashion, so I'm obsessed with the Decora look. If I could rock the accessoried-rainbow look every day, I would.

  7. Yamamba I find very strange yet fascinating but Mori Kei is my favourite๐Ÿ˜€ Joce_gib@hotmail.com

  8. Wori Kei. I do love the brighter and wilder Harajuku styles, but I love the pretty, muted tones and ethereal vintage meets old-world style of Wori Kei; the colour palate and use of voluminous cotton skirts sets it apart from the other sub cultures.
    Thanks for running this competition!

  9. Fairy-kei! Which upon further research is just another name for spank-kei. So bloody cute though! tdeges@gmail.com

  10. Mori Kei is my favourite. I do love the brighter colours and wilder outfits of many other sub cultures, but the muted colour palate, voluminous cotton skirts and the pretty, ethereal vintage-meets-old-world styling sets it slightly apart.

  13. The way you've paired retro with modern streetstyle in this look is awesome, I adore it. Gotta find me a skirt like that. My favourite Harajuku subculture is also Spank-kei, more so the Fairy-kei side of it. Ever since I was younger and stumbled across videos about it on youtube I've adored the colour schemes and kitschy accessories far more than I'd like to admit. Need to spend less money on all that, honestly!

  15. Oh! I definitely love Decora-Kei the most - mainly because it reminds me of the children's book "Fancy Nancy". Which my daughter loves!!
    I'm totally loving the Pom Pom earrings too!

  26. I really like Mori Kei- it's a bit different from the typical Harajuku style so it stands out by being more muted and is whimsical PLUS loves a quirky purse... I love a quirky purse!

  38. The Shironuri style is by far my favourite! Minori, a Japanese artist widely known for her dedication to this style, is my fashion and artist inspiration because she is able to emulate the beauty and harshness of nature and translate it to fashion.

  44. Ha, that looks like no Tokyo street ever. There's a legit footpath, and where are the thousand and one chicks checking their phones and walking slowly?

    That skirt is almost the exact fabric my cousin had a dress in in the 70s. :)

  45. Fairy kei....cos I ♥ the 80's too! @missjesswoohoo
