Deua Wornette

Growing up I always thought fashion was just another synonym for trend. You see, in my city that is just what it is: girls with the same hairstyle wearing whatever is considered “hot” or each season’s “must-have” items. Like many other teenagers, my rebellion phase started when I was around 15. I dyed my hair red and started wearing the boys’ version of my school uniform. For the first time I felt like I was really expressing myself, just for the fact that I didn’t look like everyone else. Since I moved from Brazil to Canada to attend university in 2008, I have embraced my fashion sense. Today I feel like I have given that word a meaning of my own and being at WORN makes me feel like I’m finally home. Other than fashion, my interests include International Development (which is what I study in school), gender issues, and anything horror related. My favourite TV show of all time is Jeopardy.

Current Inspirations

Vintage Madison Ave.
This Tumblr has a bunch of vintage ads that are super interesting, but to tell you the truth I only check it so I can drool over all the outfits.

Hipster Musings
I love Isabel’s blog. She was one of the first friends I made in Canada, and her style has influenced me a lot. I also love to read her posts because she always has something interesting to say.

Follow the Colours
Although it’s in Portuguese, I find that the images posted are pretty self-explanatory. This blog covers design ideas as well as just random (and weird!) knick-knacks that I would love to have around my house or in my closet. The related blogs are also very cool.

Chic – Gloria Kalil
Although this website tends to go on the “what-you-should-wear-this-season” side, I like to read it in order to keep up with what is going on in Brazilian Fashion. It has a pretty good coverage of events such as Fashion Rio and Sao Paulo Fashion week, to cite a few.

Although this website is not directly related to fashion, I tend to channel different horror movies to come up with outfits. Right now, I am working on my Freddy Krueger ensemble.

  1. i love those vintage ads! and i am excited to see your finished freddy kreuger outfit. i watched the new nightmare on elm st a couple weeks ago – it was pretty terrible. we should have a wornette horror movie night sometime!

  2. Okay – I just spent twenty minutes looking at the “best indie horror movies” titles… among them I found what can only be a cinematic tour de force called “The Gay Bed and Breakfast of Terror.”

    So no, you’re right, it’s not technically a fashion website – but you just totally made my day.
    Welcome to WORN!

  3. No worries about blogs that aren’t in english, that’s what google translate is for. I now love Follow the Colours. Thanks!

  4. Good to see that Brazilians are spreading all over the world, even in places that I wouldn’t have imagined (like HERE)! Como tu foi parar aí?
