Artwork. I see Lorde written all over this collection. Those shoes are incredible and that black knit look drives me wild.

I’m trying to get back into lookbook now that I’m more settled in Toronto. So here is another post to go hype featuring my Chloes. I’m still wobbly in them but it’s getting easier. This look also features a belt I found under my boyfriend’s bed and have claimed as my new favorite accessory.

OOTD: Liberty and Justice

Feeling very Enid Coleslaw from Ghost World with my new green hair. Also, now featuring my new Chloe Doc boots ! I’m so excited about them, but I never realized how heavy they’d be; after a few hours I’m dying to get them off my feet. Oh well, it’s completely worth it. Also, word of wisdom: don’t try to drive in these shoes. I was flooring it as soon as I hit the gas…bad idea.

In preparation for my cross-country move, I’m selling a ton of my shoes in my Ebay shop Voodoo Vintage. Most are barely worn and all are at insanely discounted prices.
Bidding ends Sunday, June 10!

InspiredBuy: NeonNation

After making my FluorescentPop post, I felt compelled to browse online shops for neon accessories. Here are my findings:

Nasty Gal x Minkpink Neon Ankle Socks

These neon ankle socks are a great way to test out the waters on this trend before diving in head first. Wear them with a pair of combat boots or some chunky heels to add some pop to your look.


Jeffrey Campbell Neon Litas

Jeffrey Cambell threw his hat into the neon ring with these amazing neon Litas. How could you resist?

Nasty Gal Neon Yellow Satchel

Nasty Gal may have answered my prayers with this neon satchel; it would be the perfect on-trend accessory. If neon yellow isn’t your style, NG also has the Eve Satchel in bright pink and bright orange.

Roberto Cavalli Neon Snakeskin Belt

This belt is my ultimate guilty pleasure; it’s both white snakeskin and covered in neon jewels. Oh if I had the money. This would be a great statement piece for a lbd (and if you paired with neon heels? Killer!). Somebody, please indulge me.

Only slightly amusing that both images were 500 by 666 pixels. Maybe it’s just Friday the 13th or maybe I still have The Devil’s Carnival on my mind; probably both.

I have been severely lacking in inspiration lately for one reason: all I can think and dream about is platform shoes! I’m talking 90’s style Buffalo Shoes. Lace-up sneakers with sky-high platforms–I want them all! I remember in the 90’s I owned three pairs of Volatile sneakers that I wore everywhere. I severely regret the day I let those go.

But now I’ve got my sights set on the highly coveted Moonspoon Saloon x Buffalo Shoes platforms, and I’m not sure I can let these get away. I’ll need to up my game and sell a lot of phone cases on etsy for these babies (or just get a loan; they give loans for shoes, right?), because I feel like I’ll be restless until a pair of these is on my feet.

Style Icon: Alaina Beaton aka Porcelain Black


Rocker Alaina Beaton of Porcelain Black and formerly of Porcelain and the Tramps, has always been a step ahead of the trend and mostly on her own level entirely. This former scene queen has broken free from the shell and become a true badass style icon. Whether she’s wearing latex on the red carpet or an outfit covered in head-to-toe studs, this chick knows how to dress the part. Alaina is, quite literally, what rock n’ roll looks like.
