Guest Blogger: Meet Camilla aka Cherrymilla!

While I was away in September I had 8 lovely guest bloggers fill in for me!  I loved, loved, loved learning more about their fashion journeys so I decided to make guest blogging a monthly installment!  November is my kickoff month for this segment and I'm starting with a rockabilly-licious lady all the way from Australia named Camilla, or more commonly known as Cherrymilla :)  I met her on Instagram a few months back and I have to say that I'm terribly in love with her Hell Bunny collection!  Without further ado, here is her guest post in all it's glory!

Hi all!

My name is Camilla, I live in Queensland, Australia. I’m also known as Cherrymilla on my own personal blog (which I recently started up) http://cherrymilla82.blogspot.com.au/ and Cherry_milla on Instagram. Please feel free to follow me on both.





Lauren aka Prefer to be Demure sent me an email asking me to post a guest blog, on her very own blog! Which I was very happy and thrilled to do so!  I follow Lauren on Instagram and also follow her own blog as well. I just love her outfits and her own personal styling! She has great taste!



My fashion sharing story started about a year ago. I had lost 20kg of weight (44 pounds) and at around the same time decided to join up on Instagram, just to share some of my general every-day photos. I soon started following all these fashionable ladies that mainly wore rockabilly/pinup/alternative/vintage inspired outfits!  I just totally admired these ladies (including Lauren) with what they were wearing and their own personal style and fashion choices.  Soon after that I became addicted to Instagram and really loved using it!



I then started sharing my outfit of the day photos on Instagram and really started to get into the vintage inspired dressing as well!  I started to buy vintage reproduction clothing (dresses, skirts, pants, tops) and accessories (hair pieces, jewellery, sunglasses, footwear).  I really enjoy visiting my local rockabilly fashion store (Cherry Tree Lane Fashion) and looking up rockabilly/pinup websites, and deciding on what item of clothing I can buy for myself!  Personally I feel vintage inspired dressing is so unique, beautiful, colourful and feminine. It’s just so inspirational! 



This type of fashion/style is now one of my main passions, interest and it also makes me feel happy, both inside and out.  That’s why I decided to start my own blog and share my own posts all about my fashion interest and styling. Also to share any other interests and loves of mine.  So far I’m receiving positive feedback on my own personal blog, which makes me very pleased!



Thank-you for reading my guest blog and thank-you Lauren (Prefer to be Demure) for asking me to guest blog!

  3. Aw I have a similar story! I fell in love with vintage inspired clothing around two years ago and since then my wardrobe has completely transformed. I have "met" so many fashioinable ladies who share the same style via Instagram (including Lauren) and it's been such an inspiration! Happy to have found your blog, Camilla! I will find you on Instagram :).

Go CUBS!

Hey, all!  I'm a big baseball fan and my mom is from Chicago so I grew up hearing about the Cubs history and am pretty amped to be here at game 7!  Anyone else into this year's World Series or have a fan favorite they're rooting for?
Anyway, I just wanted to do a quick post showing my fandom!  I decided to be silly and wear my Cubs tee with a skirt (same as my zombie skirt) from Retrolicious via ModCloth with bears all over them...get it?  Hehe. I'm not into totally normal sports attire, as I exhibited HERE. Stay safe tonight if you're out watching tonight!

Ocean Front Members Only

Is this a style post only I could bring you or what?  Not only did I mix prints (three times, as the Forever 21 shirt is gingham, the ModCloth briefcase is dinosaur printed, and my true vintage skirt is an ocean front border print!) but I'm mixing vintage with modern fashion.  It seems that many vintage-y bloggers tend to stray from any trends, which is silly to me because these bomber jackets are SO comfortable and practical for between seasons weather (and frankly, Members Only IS a vintage brand)!  I tied this whole look together with using the Members Only Satin Washed Boyfriend Jacket in burgundy with these platform heels from Amazon by Dadawen.  I feel the burgundy bookends bounce off the greens and blues nicely.

How's everyone's week been?  Thanks for allowing me to take a week off!  Not only did I have obligations at the Comedy Central Stage and the Upright Citizen's Brigade stage this week, but I was hosting one of my very best friends who came to visit me!  …

Comedy and Tragedy

It was the best of times, and it was the worst of times.  I generally hate cliche quotes that can easily be slapped on memes or on the coffee mug of a basic b!tch, but I'm hard pressed to find a better phrase to describe my life currently.  In short: I've been having the most fun that I've ever had in the eight months since I moved to LA, but then the emergency breaks got slammed on my life when my mother fell gravely ill and passed away two weeks later on June 6th.  
I'm currently back in LA, after being gone for three weeks.  I'm looking forward to continuing my comedy journey, as I feel it will save me from myself at this time.  But while I'm functioning okay as I'm still in a great deal of shock and my current mode is auto pilot, certain hours of the day prove to me that I'm very jumbled up and confused about my mom's passing.  I suddenly don't know what I'm in for and I don't know what I'm doing.
Not knowing what I'm doing …
