Here it is finally, my surprise for you! The video basically says it all. Do not judge my technical abilities too harshly as I'm still learning how to edit videos, and half of this is filmed on my webcam and the rest on my cellphone.

I just wanted to share my creative process with you and thanks again for all your support. I had heaps of fun making this, I hope you enjoy! And feel free to subscribe to my new Youtube channel!

Gloomy Fish Caravan

Today was fun, and I have a surprise for you which will be ready in the next few days hopefully! I've tried something new and I'm really exited to show you guys! But I will sshh for now...

Gemma gave me this wonderful jacket. The red crop-top and these gorgeous pants are from the Salvation Army opshop in Nelson. I love the shape of these pants and they have a sneaky zipper that's hidden in one of the pockets.

These images were taken around the old caravan that we've had since before I was born. A couple of my relatives from Austria painted it like this, I think the fish are awesome!

More photos will be up soon on my facebook page Maniana's Style.

Something Magenta, Green and Silver

Yes this is a dressing gown, but I decided it would look nice as a kimono style jacket, I also thought I'd make do of the sash and use it as a belt to tie the outfit together. 

The skirt and the top were given to me by my friend Freya, the round glasses and the apple core necklace were a gifts from Gemma. My friends and I do alot of clothes swapping. I've known Gemm since we were kids and we've always given or lent eachother stuff. Now when I look in my wardrobe I think at least a third of it was given to me by my friends. 

You've probably noticed by now that I like clashing colours. This skirt is the weirdest, sickening shade of green but I love it because it stands out. Magenta and silver aswell... I don't know, but it made sense at the time. I tend to compensate for an outrageous item by wearing it with something equally bold, rather than letting it outshine everything else.

I also tried something different with my hair this week, I'm always experimenting, but I don't think these little bun things suit me much. It was damn near impossible to get them even so I eventually just gave up.
