Tutorial: Brigitte Bardot →



Hey beauties! Do you sometimes want to wear fringe but don’t want the commitment of cutting them? How about wanting to wear your hair a la Brigitte Bardot? Even if you haven’t thought about it until now, here’s a sweet and simple tutorial for faux bangs and a sassy Brigitte Bardot updo!


Here is my lovely

The Australian weather is a troll.

It’s finally hit 5pm today and the rain decides to pour like a lactose intolerant person making a digestive mistake.

Either way, I was at least prepared for this weather…well my legs were.  I was brazen enough to leave the house without an umbrella today…and a nicely done bouffant! There goes my hair I suppose… Goodbye sixties school girl outfit!

Thursday I don’t care about you,

It’s Friday I’m in love…

For those who have missed the reference, one of my favourite bands of all time is The Cure. I had nicknamed this top my “Robert Smith shirt” because it reminded me a lot of his style (especially in the video clip ‘Friday I’m in love’).  I accompanied my top with PVC leggings that are so flattering on legs (and booty).  I got these babies from a local Sydney fashion designer called Tentacle Threads!

I always loved how Smith added a touch of red lipstick with whatever he was wearing! Unfortunately I couldn’t maintain my spiky hair that day so it sadly came flat by the time of this shoot.

My favourite Cure song of all time would probably be ‘Close to Me’. I like depressing songs to a cheery and catchy beat!

Dumb selfies I took of myself in between photoshoots (I do product photoshoots so it’s nothing exciting).

My outfits consists of the kickass Think Geek 8-bit tie and bow, Nyan Cat hoodie and, a high school girl skirt I got from Japan! My nerd glasses are from my workplace. They are my manager’s but I’m currently taking hostage of them at my desk!

For those who are wondering…I actually do cosplay on the side! This is my Battle Bunny Riven for Supanova 2014 this year!

This was my first (completed) weapon I’ve made for a cosplay ever! I used yoga mat foam for the inside, cardboard for all the decorative bits and a PVC pipe as the handle! Also lots and lots of hot glue and spray paint.

The costume itself I used this Sexy Black Bunny costume and added on top the white bunny ears.  The collar, tie and cuffs and carrots are all self-made :)

shameonpretzel said: Great Pikachu hoodie! Might I ask what size you are wearing (I want to buy one for myself, and I need to know sizes for reference)?

Hey there! The size I bought is a Medium.  I can probably fit into a small but I intentionally went one size up so that the Pikachu face will cover more than half my face :)  I also like having long-ish sleeves!

Hope this is a good reference!

This blog should just become ‘They let me do this sh*t at work’.

Anyway, this is me goofing off with a really awesome hot pink Indian headpiece at work (in a middle of a photoshoot.  HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!)

This is not a Goodbye but a Hello…

After much consideration I have decided to shut down ‘They Let Me Wear This to Work’s’ Facebook page.  Don’t worry, this blog is still going to be alive and pumping but the Facebook page itself doesn’t really need to exist.

This decision has come from the fact that I have broaden my skills, creative interests and projects in the past year and I want to share it with you all!

Other than knowing how to dress myself, I love to bake, make felt toys (mostly of food), and draw (mostly of Pikachus). I used to be in a band playing bass guitar, I have ten years of violin up my sleeve and (for those who haven’t figured it out yet) I work as a graphic designer!

This isn’t the end of ‘They Let Me Wear This to Work’, updates will still be coming your way (although in smaller amounts now). However I will be sharing more of what I love, what I create and my ideas instead.  I will be doing a lot these new posts on my website ElectricChu. If you are interested please subscribe!

Other than that, thank you very much for your wonderful support!  This is not a Goodbye but a Hello…
