This will only get harder When we’re not afraid of fighting with honor It’s our time to feel alive
I’d been feeling like I was losing my edge; this conservative city taking too much hold of me. So I threw on a more edgy outfit and called it a day. I love this sweater dress, mostly because it’s cozy cashmere, but also that it’s in the on-trend “orchid” that’s been announced as the color of the year! I paired it with an edgy beanie and fringe, leather and studs. I hate to feel as if I’m losing myself, so looks like this help keep me grounded in my personal style. What do YOU do when you feel yourself drifting away from what you consider your unique qualities?
I throw on some good ol’ early ought pop-punk and read NylonMag to get back to my roots.

Baby, I’ll give you everything you need Grunge/punk looks are one of my go-to facades. It gives me a chance to show off my tattoos, shaved head, and piercings with some flair of personal style. I love that fall brings plaid and cozy flannels into the style-mix, as they’re great for layering when the mornings are chilly and afternoons are sunny and temped. PacSun Crop Top

Back to my punk roots with this look! I love my versatility with my style; one day I can flip my hair and nose ring to wear more conservative styles, then there’s days like this where I punk it all out and let the septum ring fly and rock out to my pop-punk tunes. I love my tattoos, and I love that I can be two different people for different occasions. Anyone else out there like me? Aesthetic two-faces, with multiple styles?
I’ve definitely been toying with the 90’s grunge comeback with this look; I’ve had this shimmery dress FOREVER but have always had difficulty styling it, but I think I’ve nailed it here. The 90’s would be proud. I’ve also been doing this thing where I attach/embed the music that inspired the title of each blog post, do you guys like that? I figured it’s a good way to incorporate and add new things to my blog and share some of my musical faves with you! Let me know if you readers like it or find it a bother!?
I’m BACK! After a tumultuous October, I’m finally getting my life, and that includes this blog, back on track! The weather here in New England has been rather temperate, even with the impending Hurricane Sandy. I celebrated by going out in shorts, albeit UniqLo HeatTech, but still!
I’ve got some posts queued up for you and some things in the works for all you loyal followers. Thanks so much for following and being so patient, and for all of your kind words in my time of absence! ❤
I was able to find all of these products easily at Michael’s, and I must say I’m very proud of my cute new, pink, side cutter (only $7!)
Begin by cutting a strip of elastic to fit snuggly around your thigh and sewing it together. Then, but about a 6-8″ piece of the thicker chain. Using jump rings, attach this piece to the elastic, and this will be your center!
Next cut two (or more if you’d like) equal lengthed strips of the thinner chain (mine were about 12″).
