To be honest, I love the IFB Weekly Projects. They’re always fun, sometimes challenging, and most of the time push me to step out of my comfort zone and think creatively. This week’s is all of that. Normally, I don’t even outright say that this is for their project but this time, I feel this post might have needed some explanation. This weeks project: Channel Your Inner Superhero.
So, if I were a super hero I would be a punk rock superwoman-meets-Ariel (from the little mermaid). Why?
I AM a superwoman. Anyone who’s known me in my highest times, I can do it all. For three months I worked full time, went to school full time, and still managed to blog and be a coordinator for the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meet Up Group. Now, though I’m currently just full time blogging, I know that there will come another day when I’ll be balancing more on my plate. I’m also a mentally and emotionally strong woman, and have sadly seen a lot of terribleness in my life. Being able to move on and be a healthy, sane young woman is my self pride.
Now, as for the Ariel aspect, I know she’s not a super hero but I love the sea. Everything about the ocean, the beach. I have the red hair, and I have tried to break out of where I come from to go somewhere new. Similar to Ariel leaving the sea to become human, I left my small-Massachusetts suburb for the big city NYC life.
The punk aspect should be self explanatory. If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m your unconventional fashion blogger, inspired by rock n’ roll looks, with an adoration of body modifications.
For this look I scrounged a bit of what I had in my wardrobe; American Apparel leggings, Frederick’s of Hollywood corset, a thrifted/vintage belt, TopShop choker, Anthropologie ring, and black boots from Aldo!
So, I know this is a little outside the norm for my blog posts, but what are your thoughts? Also, I’d love to hear all your plans for Halloween! I’m still unsure of what I’m doing as of yet, but it should be a fun time!
