girl at the rock show

TGIF chicpeas! i dont know about you, but it’s taken me a lot of angry teen rock music to get through this week, especially Blink 182’s take off your pants and jacket album, which has been on heavy rotation (do it- you’ll feel better).

band tees have made a big comeback in street style of late, as you can see from the bloggerinas below. as a result, i’ve been inspired to edge up my typically conservative style and make it a little more ‘rock and roll’ by incorporating a faded tee, leather and some studs. try some for yourself, get angsty, and and prepare to party all weekend long…

1– leather jacket 2–cat eye shades 3– choker 4– cherry tee (another great option)

5– studded backpack  6– military jacket 7– sleek sneaks 8– crystal shades 9– rainbow hoops

10– beats headphones  11– leather pants 12–vegan leather skirt 13– moto boots

14– waistless denim  15– embellished crossbody 16– faded logo tee 17– shirred tank

what carine says is cool

i frequently wish i was a better purger. over the years i’ve tried to get better at letting go of pieces sooner and making space for new. however occasionally the hoarding comes in handy– you never know what will come back in style– and it’s especially helpful when you see some cool girl walking down the street wearing something you already own.

such is the case with a pair of pointy toed ankle booties from J. Crew that have been hidden in the back of my closet. i rarely wear them because the narrow heels make any subway ride extra hellish, but they were a gift from my parents and to be honest I just never got around to finding them a new home.

thank god for my laziness, however, because seeing this recent snap of bella maqnifique Carine Roitfeld made me need my boots asap. she’s truly the most sexy, fashion-forward sixty two year old I’ve ever seen (i hope i look half as good at her age). here she’s wearing an almost identical pair, styled in her classic french way– all black, a little edgy, and lots of leg.
