My First Love




Today I read this blog post and it got me thinking about my transition from grunge to glamour (sorry). Courtney Love was my first fashion icon as a teenager; I became obsessed, dyed my hair platinum, wore barettes and acted like a bitch! This lasted for about 4 to 5 years to the dismay of my mother until I finally grew up and moved on to my next obsession: fashion. Even though I moved on I was always in major awe of all things Courtney: babydoll dresses, maryjanes, white tights, lace and most of all peter pan collars. Its such a shame she is such a nut job now, but to be honest, I felt more betrayed by her when she went through her hollywood starlet stage. You cannot deny her early 90's wardrobe is a bit amazing!

Her style in the 90's was definitely the best! No one would have been wearing babydoll dresses and little Mary Janes it she didn't blaze the trail.

I was such a Mary Jane and babydoll dress addict. I even tried to recreate the red pout. I never rocked the look quite as well as Court. Ah ha ha

Courtney Love. Love-d her, not such a fan now since she snowballed into a mess, but her fashion history cannot be erased and nor should it cos she was AWESOME.

Haha nice post. I love babydoll dresses and lace.
I see you are from Melbourne. So many people from New Zealand have visited Oz. I haven't. The only place I have been overseas in U.S.A. The one city I want to go to in Aussie is Melbourne, looks stunning with amazing shopping. My cousin lived there for a while and said that it is better than Sydney because Sydney is more commercial. And Melbourne is more like Paris with the beautiful brick alley ways and nice cafes, etc. I would just love to go. Thanks for your comment on my blog. xo Keep in touch. :]
