Saturday Outfit: Going Tribal

There was a strong tribal influence in the catwalks this season. Even though spring has already come, I'm not really convinced weather I like this trend or not. I do feel is something new and I should give it a try so today I decided to have a tribal inspired outfit for this week's Saturday Outfit. If some of you are still unsure weather to follow this trend or not, even if it's not your style give it a try. It's the only way to see if you like it or not. After all, it's always refreshing to try new things.

The editorial from Vogue France November 2009 has been my inspiration for this week's Saturday Outfit. I think the model, Isabelli Fontana played a fantastic role in this photo shoot and the makeup really emphasizes that tribal spirit.

She's Got the Scrapbook: Interview with Tuuli from Fallie's Scrapbook

There are so many  creative and talented bloggers out there  who can immensely inspire you. Tuuli J is a thirteen year old girl who blogs from Estonia and is my regular source of inspiration. In her blog Fallie's Scrapbook she shares with the rest of the world her daily outfits and some drawings of big-head models wearing inspired garments from famous designer's collections. Even if you are busy now and probably have tons of other things to do, take a look at my interview with Tuuli. You'll be amazed at how creative this girl is. 


Me: You first started blogging in April 2009. Who inspired you to start a blog? 

Tuuli from Fallie's Scrapbook: Mostly my sister, but also tons of other bloggers. When I saw all these amazing blogs, I also wanted to show off my artwork and get feedback from others.

If your real name is Tullie, why is your blog called Fallie’s Scrapbook?

Well, actually my real name is Tuuli, but many people call me Tulli, Tullie or Fallie, but truth is that Fallie was just my username on several social networks long time ago and I started to like this name and used it as my blog title.


Most of your readers know what you do in your blog. Besides blogging what other things do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I go to art school three times a week, where I draw, paint and study art history which actually pretty interesting. I also like to spend time with my classmates and friends.

Everyone begins to develop their own personal style when they are around 12, your age. How would you describe your style? 

I've never been able to describe my style, because it’s really changing. One day it’s girly, the other day it’s very boyish again. I think I can say that it is like a chameleon - changes according to its mood.


Where do you get your inspiration for your outfits? 

Most of the inspiration comes from streetstyle pages, lookbook and loads of other cool bloggers. I also like to flip through tons os fashion magazines and art books.

If you could name 5 of your favourite items in your closet, what would they be? 

Striped nautical mini dress, new harem pants, snake-skin patterned assymetrical shirt, high waisted denim shorts, dr. marten look-a-likes and so many more.


Your sister Anni also has a blog called Style Hurricane. Do you enjoy having someone that can share your passion for blogging and fashion? 

Yes, it’s really great that there’s someone who I can share my opinion and passion with. My sister also buys my clothes and takes photos of my outfits.

Drawing of Tavi from Style Rookie by Tuuli

One of the most original things you draw are those big-head models with outfits inspired from designers’ collections. How did that idea pop into your mind? 

When I first started my blog I had this lack-of-ideas period and I just flipped through my sister’s fashion folders. I found an interesting dress from there and just decided to draw it on a sketchy model, but when I started to draw designer clothes regularly I decided to draw a special model for that, and as I didn’t want to draw these usual fashion illustrations I just drew a really big lollipop head to my model.

Go Out on the Streets

There is a huge difference in fashion. One thing is what you see models wearing on the catwalks and another complete different thing (they are still kind of similar) is what people actually wear on the streets. Personally, I love looking at Street Style photos for inspiration. I think that one of the reasons why Street Style is becoming so popular among bloggers, designers, and fashionistas is that people can actually identify themselves with what the person in the photograph is wearing rather than with the 8 feet tall models on the catwalk. So really, when you're walking down the street going to work or maybe just going shopping open your eyes and observe people around you. Notice what they're wearing, what jewelery they have, what hair style they have, and don't forget to look at their bags and shoes. But be careful, don't stare too much : ).

Here are some of the Street Style photographs around the web that have been a great inspiration lately.
