I wear these pants I studded myself more often than I showcase on this blog…They’re amazing, and so much fun to just sit here and rub my knees with the palms of my hands.

Shirt by UncleDJ

DIY jeans

J. Simpson boots

Bracelets from Bali, Bloomingdale’s, and Target

Not the best photos, but meh. This shirt was a gift from a pretty awesome DJ friend of mine. We actually met as I discussed the irony and “hipster” fad of his logo, but even I came to wear something with a mustache on it, in support of him and his work.

Anyway, onto what you’ve been waiting for….and the winner to my favorite beauty products giveaway is…..

This dress is my new favorite dress. $9.95 at H&M it was quite the steal! It’s velvet body and drapey sheer sleeves and wings screamed my name. size 6 and slightly big? I didn’t care. It was MINE.

H&M Dress

H&M Bracelet/ring

Wild Pair by Bakers shoes

I wore this on a two-party night and my ensemble was well received. I honestly want to wear it everyday, though, and it’s going to be quite a challenge not to!

Girl Crush: Masha Sedgwick

I might need to move to Europe. I mean, my ancestors were German, which is quite close with Poland. Which is where two of my previous Girl Crush’s are from.

This one is German; meet Masha Segwick. Lover, broken hearted, rocker styled. Red hair with some signature dark lips and excessive rings.

She’s pretty, stylish, and rock n’ roll to the core! Make sure you go check out her blog, Glamour-Rock!

New In: Freedom at TopShop

I know I went out shopping for others for this holiday season, but when I found this wristwear/hair tie all in one at TopShop it was screaming my name so loud I couldn’t say no!

Girl Crush: Porcelain Black

If you haven’t noticed by now my style is a little out there; influenced by a more rock’n’roll culture (as well as classic glamour-yay versatility!). All of my girl crushes have something unique to their edgy style. Now, normally I do other bloggers, but today’s girl style crush is a singer and performer who goes by the name of Porcelain Black.

Real name Alaina Beaton has been a long time coming to the culture scene, starting out as a cliche “scene girl” but hey, we all went through that phase, right?

Now, she’s figured out one hair style (two colors) to stick with that makes her memorable. And besides her gorgeous tresses, this girl has tattoos, killer style, and not to mention a rockin’ BF (Bam Margera). Let’s look back at my favorite, inspiring looks of hers:

She is the definition of Glam-rock in sky high heels, black and metal, and just the right amount of sheer. She is everything I aspire to be sartorially, if only hot pants were a less frowned upon form of public clothing.

Now, I leave you with my favorite single of hers:

If I were a Superhero…

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!

DIY or DIE

Last weekend I did my first studding and spiking! With the help of my fellow NYC Fashion Bloggers, the hospitality of my Girl Crush: Candy, and the spponsorship of StudsandSpikes.com we had a great little party full of metal!

After being inspired from various other bloggers and my DIY Inspirations post, I decided to stud the knee caps of a pair of black jeans. They came out rather well in my opinion!

I started out pressing down the backs of my studs with my PetCo card, but then realized a flat head screw driver was much more effective.

It was such a great time, though my fingers and thumbs ended up quite sore after about 4 hours of studding. My friends made some amazing pieces too! And I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of these jeans in the future; I’m so happy with how they came out! ❤

Punk Rock Princess

Lat Friday I dragged myself off my couch to go to dinner with a couple blogger friends.I blindly got dressed in a matter of minutes when I realized our reervations were an hour earlier than I originally thought. I think I managed a pretty killer look, don’t you think?

For dinner we went to Cafetasia, this lovely little Thai fusion place right by NYU. Nicole and I opted for frozen daiquiris, hers being pineapple something and mine strawberry banana. Monroe and Nike stayed away from the liquor, but still had delicious drinks(we all shared a bit for tasting purposes). I had a salad, delicious veggie spring rolls cut like sushi, and obviously, rice. I must say, I’m a queen with chopsticks, even when I’m being a goon.

I wore this dress from the 80’s this nice little thrift store around the corner from my apartment. It was only $5! While I feel like I’m going to my 1985 prom, I still love it, especially when I punk it out like I did here with my Jessica Simpson boots,TopShop, Stein and Blye, and Bali bracelets, Peter Grimm hat, and Aldo three finger ring. My bag was also thrifted, from Savers in East Providence, RI. And now, I leave you with a music video.
