The Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles were possibly my very first fandom. I got into watching the cartoons when I was around four years old, and quickly became obsessed. The live action TMNT movie was the first film I ever saw at the cinema, and to this day is one of my favourite films. And the ninja turtles feature quite prominently in my wardrobe. So this weekend when I was having a chilled day at home, I chose an awesome retro-print baseball tee featuring my favourite heroes in a half shell.
I am wearing:
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tee from Jay Jays
- Black and white rag skirt from Temt
- Black zipper leggings from Rubi
- Black and white sneaker booties from Valley Girl
- Studded cuff
- Silver ring from Sportsgirl
- Lego ring from Nerdburger
- Doughnut earrings from Off Ya Tree
Can we take a moment to talk about these earrings? I bought them at the beginning of the year right before my first meeting with my boyfriend, David. I was panicked that the earrings I was wearing weren’t cool enough for meeting this dude, and I made a mad dash into Off Ya Tree in Swanston Street and found this amazing pair of doughnut earrings waiting for me. As David and I had bonded over our mutual love of The Simpsons, it seemed appropriate that I should wear Homer’s favourite food for our first meeting. These have quickly become one of my most worn pairs of earrings.
Do you have a favourite Turtle? Mine is Donatello by a nose, with Michaelangelo following very closely behind.
