96; Trip to Valhalla

Top: Darkness + Dawn Vest + leggings c/o Romwe Creepers: Demonia via eBay Axe earrings + studded bracelet: Spencer's Spike bracelet: Newbury Comics Shades: Payless Shoe Source (NO SHAME) Tattoo choker: The Cobra Snake

This is a second top that I purchased from Darkness + Dawn; it's taken me for freaking ever to wear it/post it on this blog because 1. I got super lazy about DIYing it to how I envisioned, and once I did, I couldn't think of an inventive way of how to wear it. I love their shirts, as does Kathryn. She probably wears my Egyptian tank more often than I do! That thief.

Also, these leggings? Pure liquid awesome, and they're still in stock in all sizes if you dig and want a pair. My legs are a funny shape so they go loose from the knee down but THEY ARE THOR LEGGINGS. I AM THE GOD OF THUNDER AND ACID-DROPPING. Maybe that's what I will change my blog name to.

Today is the last day of Boston Fashion Week and I didn't end up attending, but I do have lots of coverage(?) of Friday and Saturday complete with iPhone photos and stuff I will nick off of Instagram (with appropriate credit) that I will be posting up on here soon...and two outfits, of course.

In other news, I finally figured out my sewing machine! And I am thinking about making experimental stuff! That I might sell, maybe. I'm going to start with kimonos because they seem somewhat easy and good for beginner sewing, y'know? I have some'll see. ♥

Until then, just gonna just leave some derpy test shots for you guys plus some experimental editing.

I am hot stuff, ohh yes.

95; Hotel Yorba

Dress c/o SheInside ☯ Flannel + Velvet boots: Arizona Jean Co. via JCPenny ☯ Trucker Cap: Billabong via PacSun ☯ Azaria Diamond Necklace c/o Vanessa Mooney ♥ ☯ Crescent necklace: Waloosi's Emporium ☯ Hamsa bottle + Hindu prayer ring: The Magic Parlor, Salem MA ☯ Coffin nail earrings: Black Water Siren ☯ Coin belt: thrifted back in Arizona

This outfit is so bizarre, but so fun. I imagine this is the outfit of a girl who wears her boyfriend's (or manlier girlfriend's? Hey she could be a lesbian too) stuff. Similar yet different compared to the last time I wore this dress, huh? I mentioned in that post how it's difficult (in the sense that it's a healthy challenge) to try to wear a maxi dress...because I am one to take multiple crazy pieces and put them togther into something semi-coherent, but having one whole entity feels too boring for me. I actually came up with a whole second outfit that carries a whole different vibe by just ditching the hat and changing the over shirt! (Same shoes, too, though only mainly for the JC Stevies or my cowboy booties would work just as well.) Suddenly I'm finding alternatives very easily and it feels very rewarding to be able to reuse pieces as such -- mainly because I can't afford to revamp my wardrobe every year with the rushing swarms of trends. I am bone broke, people!

So it means so much to me when I get the occasional email from a company offering to send me an item or two. I pour a lot of energy, money, and time into this little spot on the Information Superhighway and without income except peer responses. Company collaborations are the only "income" I ever see!

Thus I want to talk about how freaking amazing the people at Vanessa Mooney were to send me their jewelry. I typically pass up jewelry for clothes when shopping because that's how my brain is wired, and since their stuff arrived, I have been constantly wearing their jewels. (I am wearing the Poison Earrings as I type this, legit!) This is one of my faaavourite necklaces of theirs. I keep seeing beautiful teasers of their upcoming collection on Instagram and I just throw my phone down every time and whine like a banshee, because the wait is PAINFUL. (Dudes, I keep seeing a coffin ring with a pentagram. I am going to agonise if it's not part of their next collection. Because it is literally perfect.)

I leave you with a wonderful song.
