Fairy Gokmother


(Secret Squirrel digi print top, Romwe pleated skirt, Vtg belt, Tiffany & Co necklace)

Just me and my asian buddy Gok Wan! Watching his styling show at one of the Westfield shopping centres last week had me in stitches. Some top quotes from the show were-

"I do clothes very well, but I do boys better!"
"Fuck I'm hungover" (He earnt extra cool points when he cussed in front of all the children)

But yes, he did an absolutely amazing job transforming all the dags he brought onstage just by redressing them. Gotta love Aussie bogans. Now he's probably scared and will never return to Australia.

My favourite transformation was of some 60-year old lady in a frumpy white t-shirt and 3/4 jean shorts. She actually appeared to have had 30cm leg extensions, but really she just put on some high-waisted pants, a bright blouse and wedges. It changed her whole mood and you really wonder why some women are so down about their appearance... they need a Gok Wan in their wardrobe I think.
