Lately iv been getting into reading blogs..
This is something i hardly ever do-
Cos all the blogs i knew of, were (in a nice way) boring as fuck and basically talking shit about things i wasn't interested in (and really who is?)
Seems now a days that every man & dog is a "Blogger", there is literally millions of blogs out there. millions of shit ones and quiet a few good ones.
It got me thinking, FK i better step up my game and start blogging about stuff thats worth taking 5minutes out of your precious little life and looking at.
im actually quiet suprised i have quiet a few readers- what the hell is wrong with you haha
So why read my blog?
Well, not only is this blog about my store
+ESTATEofMIND and the labels i stock, its also about my personal style,
shit i like/ find funny and feel the need to share, trends im digging & hatin' on,
my perspective on being a buyer
and basically a diary of the adventures of a young (often clueless) shop owner who is just living life one day at a time, doesn't really care or interact with all those pretentious fucks out there in the fashion world and basically writes what i think.
Mixed in with ALOT of swearing- im sorry i actually can't help it oh & bad spelling/grammar.
So the next few blog post's il re- introduce myself & the team here at +EOM headquarters and give you the low down on what makes us.. well us.
This is me. Don't like it- don't read it.
Also known as: Sylvester, Slivi, God.
+Job: Owner/ Buyer / Lady Boss
One day ima be a lady, the next a goth, then a hipster and finish it off as a cartoon character.
Love my Vintage mixed in with store labels & cheaps labels & self made and anything really..
+Bad Habits: I pick my nose.ALOT. But i have a nose ring and i feel that's a valid excuse
+My Style Crush: Karen O. always and forever.
+Blogs i follow:
Aussie- Chase.Dakota (brisbane), Colour & Chaos (an aussie in NY), Raww (melb)
Internationational- Beckerman Bite Plate, Calur Villade, Fated to be Hated, Purse in Boots, Vintage Virgin, Man Repeller & Girl with the Flower.
+Lovin' right now: Dip dyed dogs
+Hatin' right now: Being single & my ex for dumping me...dickhead
(really hope he doesnt see this.. awkward)
+Trends im diggin' for summer: Snapbacks by Adeen
+Fave labels coming this ss13 that im losing my shit too:
Emma Mulholland, House of Holland, W.I.A
+What do i think of Australia's fashion sense:
Aussies tend play it too safe and are known to be label whores.
But there is a small minority of us who like to stand out from the crowd and create i own unique style and not wear what certain magazines say is "on trend".
Screw trends, don't be a sheep!
+Why did i open +ESTATEofMIND:
Because not everyone has your typical aussie cookie cutter style, and i was sick of seeing the same shit, same labels, same everything in every damn boutique in Sydney.
I love wearing unknown labels and sporting a garment that 50 other ppl don't have- makes it more unique and special and worth the $$$ i work hard for.
I'd prefer to support a young emerging designer just breaking into the scene that's got fresh new idea's & is passionate about what they do then a golden oldie that's been around for years and settles on designing commercial shit for the sake of making a quick buck.
+My goal: To take over the world!
(And to expose these shit hot young designers to the fashionable lil fucks of Sydney & worldwide once i get my online store up and running- work in progress)
+My style of buying: Anything different, unique and NON plain jane.
I often buy a lot of one-offs or limited quantities as im all for the exclusiveness of owning a certain item- It annoys the fk out of everyone but i hardly ever re-order the same thing in twice no matter how popular. I like to keep the stock always different & exciting.
+Where do i find these creative young souls?:
I trawl the internet looking for the coolest and weirdest shit i can find, attend graduate shows from local fashion schools, stalk my fave style crushes & see who they wear.
Or they come to me, sending me their lookbooks and giving me the low down on their label.
+Theme for this ss13:
'Pastel Goth' slash 'Harajuku Tripper' slash 'East London Punk' slash 'Neo Tribal'
slash 'i don't know what the fuck to call it'.
So that's me, and my story...

Tomorrow you'll meet Matt
