Fire & Ice

I've had a strange fascination with bodysuits lately. So imagine my surprise when I found the mother of all bodysuits. This baby not only has crossing straps, it has a pointed cutout bust! Only drawback is the slightly too large built in cup. Oh well, It has a Azzedine Alaia vibe I can't wait to play around with. I found it the same day as this intriguing long red blazer and acid wash zipper skirt( it zips from top to bottom on both sides!!!). I'm still not sure if I need to take the shoulder pads out, What do you think? I almost like them....

Beginning of the End

I thought I was done buying vintage metal T's. Then the holy grail of Testament shirts popped on eBay and I couldn't resist. My favorite past time as a junior high student was pouring through CD stacks to discover new bands. I picked up Souls of black by Testament not knowing what it was going to sound like. I was seriously blown away by what I heard. It was probably the same feeling I had when I first heard Fascination street and A forest by The Cure, pure wonderment. I'm the type of person who loves to dream up imagery through music. This wasn't mindless roaring and screeching guitars this was poetry to my ears.

Strange Days

Today's outfit is inspired by Limi Feu S/S 09 and Giambattista Valli F/W 07 08 collection. I've been having quite the love affair with Limi's recent collections. I'm on a desperate search for the perfect sculptural white cotton top.

I'll stick to a simple cotton tee for now. I found this wonderful 80's Rodier France skirt a few months ago, I love it!

Give me a piece of your action....

Finally found some harness ankle boots! I've been wearing these puppies endlessly since I found them last week. I've just been a lazy turd and haven't posted

Prayers for the rain

Finding the perfect trench coat is like finding the perfect red lipstick. You come close but never quite what you were wanting. I came close recently with this adorable mini trench. I'm not sure what era it's from, If it's even vintage. All I know is I love the shortness and fit. The collar is wide and the pockets are zippered! It's perfect for this schizophrenic weather we've been having lately.

More shredding

Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been keeping busy with a few DIY projects and some much needed illustrating. I felt I needed a black shredded something. I started searching through thrift shops for the perfect black cotton shirt. Six hours later is my DIY Raquel Allegra! I must say it is so addictive and almost meditative minus the sore fingertips.
