Disclaimer: This was my first time on my roof; my photographer friend was nervous about the “No Trespassing” signs, and his nerves were then transferred to me. Err Go, These photos are not the best that they could be. Also, it was an exceptionally windy, late October day.

Now, I try to keep my posts interesting by diversifying my style, shoot locations, et cetera. Hopefully my friend and I can officially conquer our fear of the roof signage and produce more great shots from up here! Because, well, once those green trees finally succumb to their fall foliage and death, there is a FANTASTIC NYC skyline view. Be jealous that I get to see the skyline daily…it’s something I NEVER take for granted!

It’s finally feeling like spring! It was my first few days off after my first week of work plus school (11 hour days). With the nice weather I ventured out for the weekend walking as much as I could.
Blogger Yanil of The Vintage Devil and I met for coffee and to catch up on Sunday, and took a lovely stroll through the East Village, stopping to admire the cherry blossoms in Tomkins Square park and checking out a few potential bars for future endeavors. The mere jacket weather was a perfect break from the frigid Ugg-necessary days of last week .

Normally I don’t condone band tees. I have a strict rule against them, personally, as I feel they label you. I could really go off on a tangent here, but I’ll refrain.
The classic iconic punk band, The Misfits, though, are well, classic. A Misfits Skull tee is a fantastic fashion staple for any guy or gal trying to stand out and fit in with the fashionably punk. Not only is the skull a staple of hardcore, but wearing this shirt and actually knowing the band and their music makes you that much cooler than the rest of our aesthetically focused generation.
I’ve seen many people wear this iconic tee a number of ways. Everybody with style seems to do something creative and unique to their shirt.
Me? I ripped the back of mine, show off some skin in a classy way. I’ve seen them studded, ripped, bedazzled; everything. The important thing is to make it your own.
as for how to wear em? Black and white go with everything; you can dress it up or dress it down. Throw some pearls if you’re girly, some stilettos and leggings, or rock em with boyfriend jeans! Throw it on with whatever you want!

The beauty? This shirt is AT MOST $15 at your local Hot Topic. If you’re looking for a way to rock this iconic skull on another fashion level, Vans offers adorable Misfit slip ons, and Hot Topic always has Misfits accessories; sweatbands, necklaces, and much more! Draven also just released some special edition Misfits shoes.
Please, though, before you start rocking this tee, look up the band and listen to the music.
