I FIRST STUMBLED ACROSS SABO SKIRT A FEW MONTHS BACK WHEN THEY LEFT A COMMENT ON ONE OF MY POSTS… WHEN I GET TIME, I LOVE TO STALK THE BLOGS OF THOSE WHO HAVE LEFT ME COMMENTS TO GET AN IDEA OF WHO THE HELL I’M TALKING TO OUT IN THE BIG BAD BLOGOSPHERE. IT’S ALSO WORTHWHILE BECAUSE EVERY NOW AND THEN I HIT THE JACKPOT AND FIND A NEW FLAVOUR-OF-THE-MONTH BLOG TO BOOKMARK AND SPEND MY PRECIOUS STUDY TIME ON.
AND SO MY INFATUATION WITH SABO SKIRT BEGAN… AND AFTER CREEPING AROUND THEIR ONLINE STORE AND SPENDING HOURS PERUSING THEIR BLOG I DECIDED I WANTED TO KNOW – WHAT THE HELL IS A SABO?!

BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST… NAMES + AGE? THESSY – 22 & YIOTA – 23. BORN? BRISBANE AND NOW LIVING? STILL LIVING AND LOVING LIFE IN BRISBANE! OCCUPATIONS? WE HAVE THE MOST AMAZING JOB DOING SOMETHING WE LOVE – RUNNING THE SABO SKIRT BLOG AND ONLINE STORE! SIGH. SOUNDS DREAMY. GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS… WHERE DID THE NAME ‘SABO SKIRT’ COME FROM? THE TERM ‘SABO’ IS SHORT FOR SABOTAGE. ONE DAY WE WERE TRYING ON AN AMAZING SKIRT AND IT WAS SO UNFLATTERING ON BOTH OF US (AHEM, HARD TO BELIEVE) SO WE GAVE IT THE NAME SABO SKIRT WHICH HAS STUCK WITH US EVER SINCE! IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT MAKES A GOOD BLOG? WE LOVE FINDING NEW BLOGS THAT HAVE A FRESH SENSE OF STYLE AND AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY… THESE ARE THE TYPES OF BLOGS WE FIND INSPIRING. WHAT ARE THREE BLOGS YOU’RE CONSTANTLY CHECKING? SONG OF STYLE, KENZA, CHICMUSE AND MANY MORE! AND WHAT IS YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE BLOG? FASHION TOAST – SHE WAS THE FIRST TO DO WHAT WE ALL DO NOW AND WE LOVE HER FOR IT.

NOW FOR A D&M… WHAT INSPIRES YOU? WE FIND INSPIRATION FROM SO MANY DIFFERENT SOURCES, RANGING FROM OUR OWN FAMILIES TO THE OLSEN TWINS TO MICHAEL JACKSON. WE FIND A LOT OF INSPIRATION FROM SIMPLY LOOKING AT OUR SURROUNDINGS. WHERE WILL YOU BE TEN YEARS FROM NOW? WE HOPE TO BE LOCATED IN A MASSIVE OFFICE OR WAREHOUSE AT SABO SKIRT HQ HERE IN AUSTRALIA. WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH? AZTEC PRINTS. WE’RE WEARING A LOT OF TRIBAL PRINT MIXED WITH BRIGHT BLOCK COLOURS… IT’S OUR FAVOURITE SPRING TREND. WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE ONLINE STORES? WE LOVE FINDING A CUTE LBD FOR THE WEEKEND AT MYCATWALK AND PERFECT PAIRS OF SHOES AT SOLESTRUCK. WHO ARE YOUR STYLE ICONS? WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE OUTFITS PUT TOGETHER BY OLIVIA PALERMO, ERIN WASSON, CHRISTINE CENTENERA, RUMI NEELY AND AUSTRALIA’S VERY OWN NICOLE WARNE.

AND, FINALLY… GETTING UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. WHAT DO YOU DO TO KEEP FIT? RUNNING AN ONLINE SHOP AND BLOG DEFINITELY KEEPS YOU ON YOUR TOES ALL DAY. WE ARE CONSTANTLY RUNNING AROUND, PACKING AND SENDING ORDERS, STYLING OUR GORGEOUS MODELS AND IN-AND-OUT OF PHOTOSHOOTS AND MEETINGS. WE RARELY HAVE TIME TO RELAX…. WOW! WE’RE TIRED JUST THINKING ABOUT IT ALL! FAVOURITE FOODS? WE’RE COMPLETELY OBSESSED WITH POTATO CHIPS, CHOCOLATE AND RED BULL… NOT SO HEALTHY THOUGH. BEER, WINE OR SPIRITS? BEER, UGH! WE’RE DEFINITELY WHITE WINE AND SPIRITS GIRLS. WHAT ARE YOUR BEAUTY MUST HAVE PRODUCTS? WE ARE BOTH MINIMALISTS WHEN IT COMES TO BEAUTY PRODUCTS BUT WE DEFINITELY COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT NUDE MAKEUP! WHAT COLOUR ARE YOUR NAILS AT THE MO? THESSY’S ARE PASTEL PURPLE AND YIOTA’S ARE A PEACHY ORANGE.

  1. I'd suggest that if your going to reference Christine Centenera as your style inspiration, then I would get her name correct (it's not christina….)

  2. Lovely once again Carmen!! xxx

    ps. honey – for some reason I find it really hard to comment on these inset comment forms on blogger – there is a weird error usually. I changed my blog to pop up comments box and have noticed a lot more comments since I did that so other people may have the same issue. xxxx
