dead flowers to the devil’s son

Another simple outfit with my leopard wedges today.  The best part is the above tribal skull necklace, which I handmade yesterday from clay, agate claws, and zebra jasper beads, and which is for sale on my new Etsy shop, HIPPIE SPEEDBALL, if’n you like it!

Ancient Lux t-shirt from Urban Outfitters, American Apparel high-waisted skirt, Egyptian rhino horn snake bracelet, Steve Madden wedges, my own handmade skull necklace.

Oh, by the way, if you haven’t weighed in already, please check out my t-shirt designs and let me know which ones you’d like to see printed!


two types of summertime blues

For some reason I’m really feeling both Eddie Cochran’s rattling original and Blue Cheer’s perfect early stoner metal cover of “Summertime Blues” right now.

I’m a metalhead at heart so the Blue Cheer version really does it for me.

two good things about being unemployed

#1. Wearing super-lazy outfits like this one in the middle of the work week:

Worn Free “I Wiped Out The 60’s” Iggy Pop replica t-shirt (I cut it into a tank), American Apparel bandeau, Earnest Sewn jeans made into cutoffs, Mossimo for Target canvas lace-ups, vintage Indonesian stone devil necklace.

#2. Chili burgers from Tommy’s for lunch!  They look totally disgusting but they are…eye poppingly delicious.

hello tuesday

My barista told me I looked “very New York” this morning, but I don’t know if he’s ever been to New York.  I’m feeling kinda more…Toontown, to be honest.

Mossimo for Target cardigan, MaxStudio bandage dress, Stop Staring! patent belt, Heritage 1981 scarf, Breckelle’s platform heels, Classic Hardware heart charm bracelet.

I’m wearing these tiny silly Hello Kitty earrings meant for babies — three pairs for 99¢.  Can’t beat that.  I’m not even that into Hello Kitty, and I still couldn’t resist.  She’s just so cute!

Also working another pair of press-on nails today…I’m admittedly a semi-convert at this point.  These are by Fing’rs Edge Hardcore Nail Addict, which is a pretty intense name:

I like ’em though!  Easy to apply, and they look nice and don’t feel weird or anything.  I trimmed down the thumbnails a bit; for some reason they always look way longer and creepily squared off compared to the other nails in the set.  They’re mega tacky, of course, but at this point you should know Tacky is one of my many middle names.

resort 12: teddy girls

Lots of designers were inspired by the teddy boy look for their Resort ’12 collections.  Check it out (click images to view full size):

Loving all those sharp, clean lines.

stripes and swirls

Took a cue from Moschino Resort ’12 today by combining a demure silhouette with mismatched prints:

For jewelry, a ton of rhinestones.

somewhat seafaring

I thought I’d riff on the nautical trend today; it feels appropriate for hot July days.

I tied a bunch of knots in a long string of costume pearls to make them feel fresh and more my style.  I don’t usually wear pearls — these were given to me as a gift — but I like the way they look clustered up with this outfit.
