Romance with Rottweilers


Givenchy Rottweiler top
Romance was Born jeans
Thrifted Doc Marten boots
This Rottweiler top has given me problems. Problems that only girls who look into their wardrobe full of clothes and declare they have nothing to wear can relate too. The issue is that I never know what to wear with it... black skinnies with a black leather jacket I hear you say? Something like this? After a while it becomes boring and typical, a little bit cliche. So when I came across these amazing jeans by Australian designer, Romance was Born, I knew I had found the perfect solution to my first world problem.

One thing that I love about Australian designers, we have a lot of labels that fill that gap in market between overly expensive god tier labels like Prada and Givenchy and run out of the mill basics. Romance was Born is an amazing label by designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, who famously declined an internship with John Galliano. Their collections are full of exquisite details that transcend the barriers of trends to produce amazing garments - for example, these jeans come from their Happy Campers collection, which takes inspiration from folk craft in the seventies, girl scouts and the great outdoors.

  1. Ah you have *that* t-shirt! I found that collection wasn't for me - I preferred the women's panthers but they didn't make them in big enough sizes. It's a general problem with Ricardo's Givenchy; the pieces are so iconic it's hard to get regular use out of them. I have one of the tattoo prints from S/S a year ago and although I love it, I maybe only wear it once every 2-3 months...

    1. I would have to agree. I loved the womens collection 100x more but sizes are always a trouble. And Yeah, I've only worn this shirt 4 times and I've had it for months!

  5. I love how unusual this outfit is. You have a great style. By the way, I'm not dip-dyeing my hair three colours...I want to choose one colour only.

  14. Let me raid your wardrobe! I love your style :)
    The pattern on your jeans is mesmerizing.
    I couldn't agree more with you on Australian designers.
    I absolutely love Romance was Born and Shakuhachi! I'm starting to grow adoringly to Milk and Honey. But, I'll continue to find my treasures in thrift stores and random chain stores with my budget hahaha :)
