Handbags

Skull Cardigan

Happy New Year everyone!

To ring in 2015, I wore a cozy and gothic skull cardigan. Its long, waterfall design makes it perfect to wear with leggings. I paired it with an oxblood colored long sleeve and what some call skeggings. They are a leggings and skirt combination built into one. Quite ingenious don’t you think? The black Kate Spade handbag is both spacious and versatile. It’s also no secret that I love boots. The motorcycle boots with decorative gold zippers and buckles are the latest additions to my shoe rack. Cat eyes made with Urban Decay eyeliner and my lips shaded with Burt’s Bees colored lip balm were the high points of my makeup.

I know this is going to sound cliche, but I’ve left 2014 feeling as if I know myself more than ever before. My personal style has evolved and I look forward to sharing it. To my readers, my sincere thank you for all of your support!

Thanks for reading! XOXO,

New Piercings + Accessories

As a late Hanukkah gift from my parents, I recently received three new ear piercings; another on each lobe and my first helix. I had them done at The Quillian Tattoo in Allentown, Pennsylvania and I absolutely adore my piercings! The shop’s piercer and former nursing assistant, Desiree, was professional and extremely sanitary. There was only a small amount of pain with each piercing; especially since she used only a needle rather than one of those terrible piercing guns. There was a quick pinch and done!

The accessories I wore included a black Kate Spade handbag and motorcycle boots with gold zipper and buckle detailing. I am also now sporting a full on fringe hairstyle. I will be doing a better feature on them in my next post.
