independant fashion blogger

Hello! I am currently seeking females (or fabulous males) for a promotion opportunity.

I am hoping to launch a Kickstarter later this month for my first upcycled fashion and home decor line called ChillRave. ChillRave is a neo-pschedelic line inspired by clothing from the 60s-90s, modern street fashion, and the DIY craze. Everything will be made with at least 1 recycled item! Clothing will be embellished, trimmed, dyed, cut, slashed, sewn…every garment will be unique, one of a kind, and if the Kickstarter is successful, affordable.

You will get some free stuff before launch and, if funded, after launch…all you have to do is post a few things! To get details, please email me at with your name, age, location, and links to your tumblr, facebook, etc.

Although people from NYC are preferred, I am open to people elsewhere in the US and internationally. Any body type is welcome up to size 2XL (the largest size in the line). Mixy Mitzy is a body image positive company so please, only submit if you look healthy and comfortable in your own skin. If you think you have a friend who would be interested, please pass on my info.

I will be contacting the people I choose sometime next week. Reliable applicants only please :)

What’s on Claradevi’s mind about Being Alone and Lonely?

I was readinga national magazine, CosmoGirl! Indonesia, and found a really good article by my new crush, Clara Devi. Few days ago I just posted some words about being lonely and then BAM! She was like reading my mind and soul. I’m truly on her side.

“Do we need other people to feel happy?” That’s one of my favourite lines. Those words are opening my mindset. All I think was “If I were with my friends, I would be the happiest girl in the world because we could talk everything” but then she could break that. I know, as a zoon politicon, we need other people to live; we need their help. But sometimes all we need is me-time because there must be something that we couldn’t do with friends, like walking between bookstore’s shelves and read something which successfully catches our eyes.

“Being alone doesn’t necessary mean you are lonely.”; “Tell yourself that you are enough and you are loved. Yes, you can do it all alone –without having to feel lonely.” She taught me that even we like to do things alone doesn’t mean we don’t have any friends and we are lonely; it’s because we are able to do them all alone. I’ve been thinking about being an adult lately -because the side effect of being lonely- we live, we do, we die… alone. Starts now on, I make up my mind with “What’s the problem of doing everything alone?” because I am an independent young girl and so are you.

Fifty Shades of Sunday

50 Shades of Sunday

All good films need a good build-up, a good plot and a stellar cast. The Sunday just gone ticked all of the above. Since our last trip (click here to see us romping around Dorset) and a rather boozy dinner which managed to duck and dive and avoid the blog entirely, we have been looking forward to our next big get-together. The date was set for Sunday and with five out of six of us in attendance…

You Will Be Mine

Whether you love Valentine’s Day or HATE it… my experience is that having someone to call a “Valentine” doesn’t really make that much a difference on the love of the holiday itself. Anyway, whether you love or hate Valentine’s day, you can’t avoid it, even if you tried. So if you can’t beat them, look fabulous and join them. This week has an excellent roundup of style guides and…
