Pink hair! Do ya dig? It's a little more orange hued than I was wanting, but whatever. I kinda messed up the dye concoction anyway, so it's my fault. I've gotten tons more compliments on this than when my hair was blue, and yet, I liked it better then. This shade of pink's not quite my favourite, and while Kathryn agrees with me, everyone else insists this better suits me. Hey, whatever! I like it all right. I'll probably do grape Kool-Aid again in the future, that was really awesome. Someone else suggested I do lemon yellow, I think it was Kathryn? That's really tempting too. (Only if it turns out like, neon.)
Fun fact about this vest: it was purchased on a whim when I was seventeen and living in Arizona, at a Halloween shop downtown that was running a massive "it's after Halloween and we need this stuff gone before the end of the week when our lease expires" sale. I think it was five bucks? Didn't even realise it was child's size until after I got home. I feel like Adam Ant in this. Er, child-sized Adam Ant. It took everything in me not to put warpaint on my face when getting dressed. I kind of regret that decision not to.
Check out these amazing denim pannel leggings that shopakira sent me. They have denim pannels in all of the inappropriate areas, so they can be worn as pants! So, you know, no complaints from the fashion audience saying, "eww, hate when girls wear leggings as pants, camel toe, eww!" BAM, these things should win an award for being so clever. They almost look like chaps, the kind motorcycle guys wear sometimes. That's always a plus.
There's so much awesome sexy/adorable stuff from shopakira's brand that I just can't get over, much like these leggings. Check 'em out; I really think I'm gonna get this pink and blue cropped turtleneck when I get paid 'cuz damn, I can't deal with how perfect it is! Here are some pieces that I love, but you can check out shopakira's label here!
Everything is until $50 except for those drop dead gorgeous blue leggings. I'd blow $80 on those in a heartbeat, if it was within the realm of possibility.
Title ref, if you didn't know this song already! (And if you don't, you need to rectify that.)
