I was headed to a hip lil brewery over on the westside of Los Angeles for my friend Cooper’s birthday. The night called for a chic, edgy style that says “fashion forward.”
I had so much fun getting ready for this night. You know when you get something new, like a dress or a shirt, and you just can’t wait to wear it? And perhaps you just hang it in the closet and wait for the perfect occasion to come along? Well this was that occasion for me and this outfit. I got the shorts ( yes, they are shorts!) and shirt from a sample sale for like $10 bucks each, so as usual for me, I scored big time.
Love these hair picks which are sold by Antickquities on Etsy. They are made up of actual clock hands. Great price as well! I highly suggest checking out their shop!

Great outfits don’t always need color… here I’ve created a fantastic look using only black and gray. If you absolutely need a splash of color, that’s what lipstick and nail polish are for.
The trend is just emerging and just a few weeks ago I found this picture on the cover article of a fashion tabloid:
I first fell in love with the fringed kimono last year while searching for Burning Man garb on Etsy.
I did not want to spend 300 dollars on this particular exquisite article of clothing, so I continued on my search.
A few months ago my beauty arrived. It’s burn-out crushed velvet in a gorgeous deep burgundy. I absolutely love it!
I love that this type of garment can be worn so many ways. With jeans or a skirt, a tshirt or a tank… or even belted or not belted. This garment will speak numbers no matter which way you wear it.
I added two long feather earrings on one side, to add to the hippie feel of the outfit and a couple of chunky, bold rings on one hand.
In my opinion, the fringed kimono is article of fashion that can transcend seasons and years with its classic beauty and versatile ways of wearing it. Trendy or not, I’ll still be rocking mine.
Although I am not an avid follower of the “goth scene” I do love gothic fashion.There certainly is a difference between “high school” gothic fashion, and elegant, more mature gothic styling. That means leaving those extremely riveted, faded black bondage pants in the attic. Naturally, the color palette of any gothic ensemble will mainly be blacks, grays, whites and reds; all lovely colors to build an outfit with.
These photos are from a casual day out to lunch with a friend of mine. He busted out his iPhone, and we went on a photo taking spree.
These pants are black on black leopard print I found at Ross for 10 bucks. The jacket is plain black with faux fur around the collar and wrists and has a zipper front closure, with a belt that wraps around as well, $25 on clearance from Hot Topic. Add in a few silver funky accessories and some hot platform boots, and the outfit is complete! Oh yes, and red lips. Always red lips.
You just can’t go wrong with all black, leather and fur.
