Prison Break

This would be odd but my inspiration for this outfit is a jail cell. The stripes would be the prison bars, the gold chainlink necklace would be the binding chains, and the tattered shirt symbolizes the unglamorous living conditions. And if I were to complete this "fantasy"; I would have gotten out of prison---with my crime being a "shopping addict" (as imprinted on my shirt)---in this outfit and equipped with a deadly weapon that came in the form of my spiked platforms. What do you think?

I Want Candy

This cropped sweatshirt had been sitting in my closet for a year. My boyfriend gave this to me as his first monthsary gift to me last July and I only got to wear it now. Mark was getting tampo that maybe I didn't like it saying that by the time I'd finally don it, the world has spouted tons of crop tops already. What do you know, he's damn right. The crop top trend is in its full swing now. This whole time I was just looking for the perfect garments (a specific cut/style to my leather skirt) and accessories (chunky gold chainlink necklace which was not so readily available before) to go with it to complete the image in my head. It's not surprising at all that it takes me months/years to wear an outfit especially if I had envisioned it in a certain way. There is no way for me to just wear it out the first time styled in another look. This outfit from before took me two years to complete (click that link why don't ya). My stubbornness, being idealistic and a perfectionist (throw in a lil bit of OC) show so much through this.

July 2013 Playlist

Here's a playlist that makes me feel young. Ironically though, most of the songs here are a departure from the cutesy music these gals have been making when they were still Disney/Nickelodeon artists. Listen to them now and (maybe take a look at the provocative music videos too while you're at it) you'll know that they have finally abandoned the saccharine sweet images they once had. Still, their songs "feel" young to me in spite of their efforts in looking and sounding mature. Maybe 'coz I've grown up alongside them and will always remember them as redheaded Cat Valentine of Victorious, Miley Stewart of Hannah Montana, and Alex of Wizards of Waverly Place that make it impossible for them to grow up in my eyes. They've been getting a lot of flak for their racy music and videos, but I realize now that that can only be the "soundest" (pun definitely intended) approach to shedding their teenybopper images (just keep it classy!). Because really, no matter what they do, they'll always be little Miley, Selena, and Ariana to their fans.
