SPIN THE PIN AUGUST EDITION {Fashion Challenge with @iCurvy}

JACKET: James & Co* {exact match}, TEE: Dangerfield, SKIRT: Vintage {similar here}, HEELS: Kmart Australia {available in store now}, LIPSTICK: Lime Crime Unicorn in “Countessa Fluorescent”, SUNGLASSES: Siem Reap Markets, Cambodia

Girly girl or tom boy? I pretty much fit into both categories depending on the day and/or my mood! That is why I was too excited when I saw Jo from iCurvy‘s latest pin choice for her Spin The Pin fashion blog link up! I play along every month for two reasons; firstly because I love being involved in a good fashion challenge, and secondly because I’ve found this is one way I’m forced to shop in my own wardrobe and wear items in different ways that I normally wouldn’t. Last month was all about pattern clashing, and June brought pastel to a whole other level, but this month it’s hard meets soft, and it got my brain ticking. What to wear? Here’s this months pin from blogger Meri Wild


But first – what’s Spin The Pin? In Jo’s words.

So what’s the idea? Each month I’ll be picking a Pinterest Image – an outfit for some inspiration. 

I’ll be posting my outfit, or my ‘Spin’ on the ‘Pin’ and opening up a link party for all of you to post your ‘spin’ on the outfit too! 

You might be inspired by the colour palette, the pattern, the setting, the style, a particular item, or the whole outfit – how you put your spin on the pin is totally up to you! And I’d love for you to share it with me! #spinthepin


Although Jo’s pin choice features a tutu, I decided to keep it me and go for a vintage midi skirt that is still as loud as the pin, but something I felt more comfortable wearing. I love the idea of a full ballerina skirt, but I took this look out during the day and I think the bright pink was enough of a stand out. I picked up this skirt a few months back at a “garage sale” organised by a few Perth creatives, and I was very happy to take it off Emma from Dropstitch‘s hands! I love Emma’s style, and it’s too cool to have one of her past pieces in my wardrobe. This was the first time I actually wore the skirt. Does anyone else have a wardrobe filled to the brim with unworn items? Oops! What I love most about it is the lady like pleats. Fancy much! The skirt oozes girly glam, so I decided to keep the rest of outfit quite hard, and my new James & Co vegan leather biker (more about that jacket here) paired with a Dangerfield tee featuring the one and only Johnny Depp did the trick. If he’s not tough, who is? I just have to say I love Dangerfield’s range of printed tees. They fit great, they’re quirky and I love the range of pictures available. Check them out!


The pin this month has been so much fun! I think I’ll have to mix genres more often! Do you think you’ll try it too? I think you should, and you should definately link up with the Spin The Pin link up – find it here.

Are you a girly girl or a tomboy? Do you mix the two?

    Love that bright pink. Love that jacket. What a fun thing to do each month. I am far less adventurous.

  2. I’m definitely a girly girl…
    I do love your take on spin the pin though. I also adore just how much edge a leather jacket adds to soft and feminine. Great post xx

  3. I love the bright pink skirt with the biker jacket. Very ‘Grease’. I have been dragging my feet on this pin. I love it in the pin but I’m struggling to translate it into my own. I love your sunnies too. They are such a great shape. Bron x

    • Hahaha I didn’t even think of Grease, but i guess it kinda is!!! It was a challenge, that’s for sure, but you have to give it a go lovely! As Jo said, choose one element you love and just go for it!
