EMILY LONG, 23
I AM AT the State Library.
I AM a visual arts student.
I AM WEARING a reversible MAMC jacket that was left behind by an exchange student that my dad hosted, and a dress from Glassons that I borrowed from a friend. My top is a "Slim Set" band shirt; my friend is in the band. My shoes are Blundstones.
MY STYLE IS Oh wow, that's a huge question. I wear a lot of second-hand pieces, but I've never really thought about [how to describe] my style. I wear a lot of black… but I'm trying to move into more colour for summer.
MY FAVOURITE PLACES TO SHOP ARE op shops or consignment stores, that type of thing. Swop [in Collingwood] is really good, and Mutual Muse is great too, particularly the Brunswick store.
MY BIGGEST FASHION MISTAKE WAS probably just being 14. Everything with being that age was bad.
WHEN I WAS A KID I WORE whatever my mum put me in really! There are a lot of childhood photos of me in old fashioned, cute, long floral dresses.
I WOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD IN fast fashion. Since I started properly shopping for myself, I've tried to move away from that.
