I came across Minga London on Instagram (like it seems I do with a lot of my favorite designers/shops/artists) Minga's vibe is very youthful and fun. If you love Tumblr and follow internet trends, you'll be in heaven. As far as their tops go, seem to have something for everyone.I chose pink/girlie colors for my picture examples(below) but all they're tees/crop tops/sweaters-(or "jumpers" as they call them, because they are a UK brand) come in an assortment of colors. So if girly girl stuff isn't your thing, don't sweat it- you have options! Here are some of my personal favorites I selected off their website.

Lets be honest, most people don't want to see selfies in their feed on any social media platform. Of course there are exceptions; celebrities, people who are "internet famous" etc..) But for the most part I think most us cringe (or roll our eyes) a little when we see that girl who was our third best friend in 6th grade has posted yet another selfie. Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating or saying that I don't post selfies, but come on, I think if we reached deep down into our heart of hearts we could all admit that we feel pretty indifferent when someone we know posts a selfie.
Tonight, yes...I took some selfies. There was one that I really dug. But all the realities of what I mentioned in the above paragraph kind of sunk down to my belly. I've posted more selfies then usually for the last couple months and I felt weird about posting yet another one..So I was bummed because I really really liked this selfie dammit! The wheels in my head began to turn a little; "Hmm..what if it wasn't just regular boring selfie?? What if you made it ART??" I began to mess around with some editing apps on my phone and made 7 different artistic versions of the same selfie. I obviously didn't plan on posting all of them, but I kept getting inspired and finding new ways to reinvent the same picture. It was around the 4th edit that I decided to make a blog post about this.. 1. because I didn't want to spam any feeds and 2. because I thought (possibly?) some of you might like them.
This was the original selfie
And here are the 7 edits:
The apps I used to make these are called "Camera 360" and "PicsArt"

Birthed in 2005, Romance Was Born is an Australian (Sydney) label by Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales that is known for it's playfully eccentric outrageousness. (according to what I've read) Anna and Luke draw a lot of their inspiration from traditional art (traditional in in the sense of painting/illustration/sculpture etc....wanted to specify because there are so many forms of art! Everything seems to BE art these days..which I'm not definitely complaining about! haha, anyhow..) They received the Woolmark Australian Designer Award in 2009 and their celebrity fans include Tavi Gevinson, Nicky Minaj, Lilly Allen and Bat for Lashes! The images below(source) are some of my favorite looks from their most recent collection.
