Perpetually Five tee, thrifted flatform sneakers)
Listen, I know what you're thinking: these people are living the dream. And you're absolutely right.
Ever since I was a kid I have been waaaay too into Maccas: the McNuggets, the salty salty chips and the extra sweet icy cold Coke. Everything about it just makes me so deliriously happy.
So when Jiawa from Closet Voyage and I spotted these vintage Maccas print tees in Perpetually Five's store, we knew we had to do a grungy/amazing/delicious twinsie photo shoot. Jiawa will be able to attest that throughout the shoot I was excited to the point of hyperbole and kept exclaiming "THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DOOOONE!". Even the kids at the skate park wanted a piece of the action. Alas we had to tell them, no, we would not be taking pictures of them and no, they would not be eating our props. It was just one of the best nights ever and I'm so glad to have Jiawa around cause not many people are interested in having a magnificent fast food feast while lazing around on concrete surfaces looking cute (for unknown reasons).
In case you're interested, Perpetually Five do this tee in a number of different prints (the printed part forms a pocket - bonus!), there is one that is covered in cats which is also very cool. The prints are sewn onto t-shirts made by another Canberra Designer, Pear and a Spare. You can find them in the three little birds and little boy blue store in New Acton.
Perpetually Five will also be showing their all new collection at FASHFEST on Thursday 1 May, you can get your tickets at fashfest.com.au now! Like last year, the event will be held at Canberra Airport.
