One thing that is a theme throughout this blog, whether it be on my nails or clothes, is my love of bright, bold primary colours. I love wearing red, and black. I love black accessories. My style is, I guess what I would call, casual punk chic. I wear a lot of band t-shirts with jeans, styled with accessories and cute shoes. I love shoes! So I feel this outfit today is a great representation of who I am and my style and personality.
So this is the outfit, and what I am wearing is a ridiculously cheap outfit. The beads along cost about as much as the whole outfit. From head to toe, the leopard print collared 3/4 length over shirt was something like $10 from Coco Latte. The shirt I am wearing is from a fabulous punk band called the Bronx, and if you're a regular reader you'll know I listen to that band so much. They are incredible live! I got the t-shirt from Soundwave last year for about $30. The jeans are Factory Spray On Jeans in red for $40.
Now the beads. Oh, the Beads. They were a 21st gift to myself. I wore them on my 21st party and just about every day since. I love them to pieces. Mostly because they have little skulls on them! I'll wear anything with a skull on it! I bought these beads from Tilka for a whooping $70. Normally I don't buy costume jewelry that expensive as a rule because, well, it's costume jewelry and it doesn't last. But I loved them so much and wanted to spoil myself, and they looked super cool with my birthday outfit!
Vintage Or Tacky and Konadlicious lately and really admiring their courage. I don't necessarily have self-esteem issues but I do wish I was a lot skinner than I am and sometime it's stopped me from doing things that I want to do. But these girl aren't you're typical size 6 or 8, or whatever country you are from that means too skinny model, but they put themselves out there in front of the camera and show off their unique style for their followers or haters to judge. They both exude confidence and chrisma, and that is something that I want to work on starting with this OOTD thing!
