Shine-On Safari...

Jodes scored this super hot top for me from the Smith Family the other week.
Its like metallic giraffe print - I'm not usually one for gold and bronze but it's 80's charms stole my heart.
I'm not even going to take the shoulder pads out of it....

Stop! Thats My Top....

Browsing through the pics of Purple Sneakers' 200th night I couldn't help but notice the delightful Ruby Rose (guest djing) wearing a top that looked slightly familiar......

Add Image one hanging in my wardrobe!
I picked mine up for $3 at the op shop down the road from my boyfriend's place and have worn it heaps, including on Christmas Eve in the shot above (teamed with high waist leather shorts and platform heels).
Must ask Rub's next time I see her where she got hers....

For When You're Chilled to the Bone....

I have a big thing for skulls and skeletons.
These would look great with an 80's prom dress and chunky platforms......

Never Enough Puff....

God I love this dress.
Lace studded with rhinestones topped off with a frothy organza puff ball hem - 80's opulence at its best really.
Spied it on ebay but alas, it went above and beyond what I could justify spending on it.
The search for an MTV Awards ensemble continues......

Pleather Pleasers....

Blank "P and U" Cropped Skinny Pleathers
Bardot Ruched Leg Pleather Pants

Something so wrong about these yet......can't seem to stop thinking they could be a good idea.
Of course I'd prefer leather, but the only styles I come across are either
a) Waisted
b) Straight leg; or
c) Low rise and skinny, but ridiculously expensive.
In fact I've got a pair of high waist, straight leg leathers I scored many months back at an op shop.
Might have to have a look at altering them (translation: nag Jodes to alter for me).

Highly Skulled....

Was flicking through the latest issue of Attitude magazine and spyed this little number.

Makes me think of jack-o-lanterns and paper doillies....which I like.

The Plan That Got Away....

I can't believe The Getaway Plan have broken up.
The little screamo-band-that-could were on the cusp of great things but alas....
Here's to two great E.P's and a stellar debut album. I'll be there to hear the last chord ring out in May....

Kiss My Boots Hello....

These peeptoe/wedge/biker boot/heel creations from Wittner are quite honestly THE most fabulous shoes I have laid eyes on in quite some time.
I popped down on my lunch break to see if they met my expectations.....and oh how they did!
They're a little chunkier and more avant-garde than this picture suggests.
I lay-byed them immmediately....c'mon pay day so these lovelies can come out and play.....

Punk is not Dead....

And neither am I.

The hiatus is over and I'm back in the land of the blogging....
