Fall Fashion Finesse

  Hello everyone. My first Autumn fashion article is a collaboration with one of my favorite girlfriends who runs “LifewithLilRed” aka the wonderful Sarah Mushenheim who I’ve done many  collaborations with, nominated eachother for blog awards, and hopefully will have her feature interview on my site too. 

  So for our latest collab, we can up with the idea for fall fashion looks we like. Now before you look at these, remember I live in Southern Californian so it’s not super cold here yet. But my two outfits I did a shoot with can be layered for when it gets really cold and into winter. For example, my two looks in a warm dress and the other one consists of shorts but always feel free to adding stockings, long socks like I do, etc. layering is always a good thing. 

First Look:

My first fashion look is a staple for me every time it’s this season. I love my red and blue long flannel dress and I love wearing it with shorts and some heavy thigh high socks. I love boots so I’m showing my black short boots with gold sharp studs on them and a gold heel. I rocked my leather shorts which can keep me warm because of the leather and ended this look with a cool rock and roll top underneath my flannel and my music jewelry cause music is life! Enjoy look number one.

Second Look:

My second look I’ve been wanting to show for awhile is my sexy new hoodie dress. It’s the Vixxsin Black Bettie Page zipper dress which comes attached with a beautiful fitted fur hoodie. The detailing on the back is genius and definitely my style or all my eclectic taste such as pinup, rock & roll and a touch of goth. I paired this dress with my thigh high boots which are the sexiest thigh boots I’ve ever owned. But like I said in my first look, you can layer stockings under the boots or if it really cold by you, wearing thick or thermal leggings. Get created! I say that a lot in my articles but it’s true and will save you a lot of money. Thank you for reading this and enjoy my second set.

Weekend Fashion and Style

I went to go see the movie, “The Nun” yesterday, which by the way was good and very scary, and my husband and I both loved what I wore yesterday on our movie date and took some photos of my look. I was in a very artsy and bohemian mood, and enjoyed wearing my sexy leather shorts with a simple black tank top and my velvet floral kimono shawl. I paired it with my cute floppy hat and tortoise shell sunglasses. I finished my look off with my Valentino black and gold studded heels, my quilted classic Chanel Purse, some cute bangles, my gold pearl drop earrings from my friend Kirsty and my Edgar Allan Poe necklace made by my other friend Luna. 

I love the mix of the color and black and white photos my man took and I felt like I was sitting in one of my favorite cafes in San Francisco. I really enjoyed this fun outfit of mine as well as my really fun day.

10 Looks for Summer: Outfit Seven: “Pantsuits and Playsuits”

I love pantsuits and playsuits. I love wearing dressy ones of certain occasions and I love wearing more casual ones for everyday use. We are in August where it’s starting to slightly cool off but it’s still very warm by me, so this gray blue and white striped Capri pantsuit is perfect for me.

Because of the stripes, I had a nautical theme going on here with my two red and white striped anchor bows, matching high heels, and red cat eye sunglasses.

The best part of this outfit is the cute cutouts it entails. There’s two zippers in the back which shows part of your back off which is very cool but my favorite detailing are the two side cutouts where I can show my waist and my cool ink.

Check out my pictures here before going out for grocery shopping and other errands. Thank you and enjoy!

10 Looks for Summer: Outfit Four “All Eyes on You.”

Today it was 104 degrees were I was today. I was in the San Fernando Valley to have a doctor’s appointment with my mom as well as my mom which was nice since we got together. 

I knew it was going to scorching hot today so I donned my spaghetti strap “Batty Eye” dress from Sourpuss Clothing. I wore my studded stilettos again and wore my crystals in my right hand with with iridescent beetle earrings, emeral jewelry. I also rocked my pink and green jeweled cat eyed sunglasses again and I still love them. The finishing touch were my “Victory Roll Swirl hairdo with my lily spider flower clip.

This outfit was perfect for this horrible heat today as well as a cute dinner outfit at my favorite Italian restaurant, “Buen Gusto.” I went with my mom who is my bff besides my husband. Winks, and we had a very nice time. It was fun taking pictures in there and having some Procesco to go with the sign above when I’m sitting down.

10 Looks for Summer: Number Three, Girlie Girl in Jeans and a Tank Top

 A tank top and jeans is always a cute go to, especially during the summer time but I like to add a little extra flare to this look. I rolled and cuffed up my jeans like any good rockabilly gal and wanted to be pretty in pink in my cute barbie pink heart Trixie Mattel tank top. If your tank is a little big, pair it with a pretty lacy bra or thin camisole (that will still keep you cool) to give a little sexy but tasteful edge. It also dresses up the outfit a bit more as well do some big high heels or stilettos. I sported my new pair of HUGE flamingo pink and green- jeweled cat-eyed sunglasses. I love them and they are so fun as well as protect my peepers from the sun.

    To give your look more glamour, wear some beautiful jewelry with it. Here I wore a beautiful shell heart bracelet to go with my hearts on my top and my finishing touch were some beautiful pearl drop, vintage-inspired chandelier earrings that I just got as a gift from my girl Kirsty Giuliani that she made. Thank you girlie, I am I love with them!

10 Looks for Summer: Number Two, Dead Head Moth Blouse

Here is my second summer outfit which was perfect for my day out yesterday at Universal Studios Hollywood. I wore my jean shorts donned with mini gold skulls and my sleeveless Dead Head Moth blouse from one of my favorite brands Hell Bunny. A little horror trivia, the dead head moth is the insect that “Buffalo Bill” collected in the movie, “Silence of the Lambs.” The blouse buttons down in front and is very lightweight which is perfect for the sweltering heat. It’s longer in the back than the front but has an opening in the back which again is perfect for the heat. Just remember to apply sunscreen to that area. The skull and butterfly pattern is so cute and I’m very glad I bought this cute top. You can find it and other fabulous clothes at Hellbunny.com.

Since I was at an amusement park, I couldn’t wear my big heels which I was very sad about. Instead I wore my Ed Hardy sneakers that I’ve had for years that I love and are super comfortable. I paired them with little white socks and my small Universal Monster Cross body bag that I showed in my previous “Pins and Brooches” post. This was the perfect summer outfit to be out at a theme park all day long.

Pins and Brooches

Good Morning fabulous friends and followers. I’m up early to get ready for a fun day at Universal Studios Hollywood. I’m going with my husband of course and two of my best friends and darling couple, Kirsty and Jordan Giuliani. I’ve written about them before as well as working with Jordan in front of and behind the camera lens.

Since I’m going to a theme park today, I’m bringing one of my small purses with me that is decorated with some of my fun brooches and pins and wanted to show them off. Since we talk a lot about fashion, style, and adding your own personal touches and uniqueness to your looks, I thought it was fitting to show off some of my pins from my collections. Brooches and pins are a real easy way to personalize your stuff and add a little extra pizazz to your outfit. I love putting them on coats, handbags (the non-expensive handbags of course), top and bottom pieces, and more. If you are a creative person, you can make your own and find supplies at places like Michael’s or if you don’t want to do that, you can find really cool pins at many places as well as online. I love collecting them from concerts, events, (such as drag con) amusement parks, etc. I love finding vintage inspired brooches and also collecting fancier ones with Swarovski crystals and jewels. (Since I’ll be at a theme park all day, I think I’ll leave my more rare and expensive pieces at home.) I think that pins and brooches are extra special also when they are handmade.

   They are just a fun and easy way to spice up your wardrobe and life. Here are the ones that I’m wearing today with my very appropriate Classic Hollywood Universal Monster cross body purse. I also included where I got this group of pins as well so you can check them out.
