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.
Maybe I’ve been reading too many 90’s grunge blogs or listening to too much Die Antwoord, but I think it’s safe to assume that there will be a revival of tacky, Harley Davidson-esque flame print in the immediate future.
Just take the brand spankin’ new Nasty Gal vintage lookbook, featuring the queen of 90’s grunge herself, Niki Takesh. Those nails? Killer!
Of course this trend has been popping up on the S/S runways of Jeremy Scott, Prada, Alexander McQueen and I’m sure more. My most favorite is a bit of a flashback; from Daniel Palillo F/W 2010. I love the elegant structure combined with a usually tacky print.
However, as Jeffrey Campell‘s latest bomb, the Flame Litas prove, not all flame print works. My suggestion: moderation if you’re thinking about taking this print for a spin.
Until then… I had to.
Let me tell you ’bout my hair; It’s about yaay long and hasn’t been cut (no joke) for over 6 years. I’t’s been dyed almost every color of the rainbow and have gone from black to blonde and back again at least three times. Currently, I bleach only my roots and only every two months or so. Still, my hair breaks and fries and I have absolutely no control over it because it just continues to break off.
The only solution (of course) is to let it grow and not touch it for a long, long while. However, I’m miss antsy pants and have a difficult time looking the same for more than a few months and I absolutely hate when people make comments about how long my roots are. But, I know that eventually, I will have to deal with it and take the time to grow some roots. So, I thought, why not now? I know that as I write this, even I don’t believe that I will stick to it, but at least I’m putting it out there for some outside input, tips and support. I have about an inch or roots right now and am already losing my mind.
Since you last heard from me, I’ve fled the country… temporarily. At the start of July, my boyfriend and I set off on a roadtrip across the United States with destination Toronto, Ontario as the main goal. We broke down in Hurricane Utah for far longer than I’d like which dampened our trip a bit, but we still managed to have an adventure.
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!
