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.
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!
15 shirts for under $200.
PLNDR, the sample sale version of Karmaloop, rocks.
I spent a while stalking their sales and waiting for the perfect combination of t-shirts to become available before making my purchase. However, I just received the package and my cart is full again. I can’t believe the amazing haul I made for such a bargain. These were all shirts I’ve wanted for a while but couldn’t afford and, of course, they’re all men’s tees. No I’m not being paid or asked to endorse them, I’m just really happy with my order.

After making my FluorescentPop post, I felt compelled to browse online shops for neon accessories. Here are my findings:
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 Cambell threw his hat into the neon ring with these amazing neon Litas. How could you resist?
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.
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.
It’s time once again for an embarassing confession on my part. I may or may not call Big Rich Texas one of my guilty pleasures. But with this post, I can claim that it’s purely for research. Anyway… While watching the show that shall not be named, I found myself lovestruck with the neon green bag that Hannah totes around (if you can find me a photo I will love you forever). Hannah dresses in dark and edgy colors and the extra pop of florescence makes her look into a complete package.
Adding a pop of neon is shocking, yet fitting, for the upcoming season; when fashionistas shed their dark winter garb for a more colorful spring style. I’m definitely going to try it out. I think I’ll start with a pop of fluorescent nail polish like in the above photo, but I would love to find a neon green bag like Hannah’s and the one below.
