(everything old or secondhand // earrings made by a local artist // Doc Marten boots)
That moment when you realize I’m not calling myself a badass, this title is actually a…. pun. My earrings are actually made from mouse bones, and of course no mice were harmed in the making. I go to school with an artist who uses found insects and mouse bones to make jewelry and spookiness aside – just tryin to support my local artists, ya know? And I just so happen to really dig them.
One of my biggest dilemmas in the past was putting together an outfit that looked good with a leather jacket, but also looked good with my leather pants…. but damn I can’t wear BOTH at the same time, especially with my Docs in the mix. But I finally said screw it, I do what I want. And I shockingly got compliments more so than I normally do on my outfits! One person even told me that they liked the “rockstar” look and when I asked “don’t I normally look like this?” he said yeah, but more specifically commented that I look like I hang out with Russell Brand. And I took it as a compliment, it’s still one of the funniest comments I’ve ever gotten about my look – I’ll take it! I’m obsessed with huge drapey t-shirts, stuff with holes in it, faux leather, metal everywhere… and I have NO SHAME!
