I want it all to remind me of the first time
Willing to fall into forever if I think it feels right
Leather, spikes, studs. Edgy style personifies me so when new DC boutique Rosies and Rockers approached me to work with them I knew we’d be a perfect match. Reminiscent of my adolescent days of growing up trying to shop in Hot Topic (and my mother forcing me to return my purchases the following day), but with a glamorous feel of sexy body hugging and diamond accents, I chose pieces that reflected my versatile style. Perfect for a hot date night out, all this dress needs is the right accessories and some vampy lipstick.

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!

Again, with another Polish girl, man these girls have style! Alice Point is a blogger and now a collaborative designer, from Poland. Her style? Totally rock n’ roll meets backstage runway. And I’m so happy to have found her. There’s not much else to say, though, so here’s a few images from her blog :
She kind of makes me want to party and get drunk and be fearless…Total lust. She seems to consistently rock some of my favorite brands like Wild Fox Couture and Blackmilk, mixed in with alternates.

Latest lust: spiked and studded jewelry. Specifically bracelets, cuffs, and necklaces.
Gasoline Glamour Eye Patch and Cuff as seen in Zink Magazine
This love affair was sparked almost a year ago when Zink Magazine featured some Gasoline Glamour pieces in their June issue. Ah, the silver spikes on black was enough to make my inner punk swoon. The eye patch is so creative and the cuffs are a great size. They’re whole line is fantastic, but sadly, these metal spokes will cost you; Prices run about $60 for more basic things like a cuff or eye patch, but can go up to $2,000 for beaut’s like the “Slaughter Cuff” in the photo.
Now, maybe it’s just me, but since this editorial I’ve seen a huge rise in the punkishly ordained jewelry. Eddie Borgo has a more feminine, high end style to spiked jewelry. He incorporates pretty gems and semi precious jewels with silver spikes. To Die For. You can find his work at TWO locations in America; Capitol in North Carolina and Bergdorf’s in NYC. As you would guess, pretty jewels cost a pretty price; these puppies go for about $1500 for a necklace and from $500 to $1000 for a bracelet.
Now, lets talk cheap alternatives. Here’s my collection:
The top is a leather studded bracelet from Bloomingdale’s that retails for $30. The second is a plastic spiked cuff from TopShop, also $30. The studded bangle was $20 at Filene’s. All these stores have a small but notable selection of spiked and studded wrist wear. Sadly, I haven’t seen any studs or spikes around any of my favorite bargain stores like Forever 21 and H&M, but I did however find some on the street! The street vendors have the cutest ones I’ve seen and charge you $10, but they can always be bartered with.

And, as always, hot topic and Claire’s carry plastic and rubber versions for all those young teenagers looking to look hardcore.
Throw these with a leather jacket and a black mini and you’re good to roam the LES in style 😉
