Leave The BOY Alone!

Leave The BOY Alone
I know I haven’t posted any outfits in a while, so I’m using Polyvore to post something I would definitely wear.  I love BOY LONDON, and just purchased a sweatshirt from ASOS (pictured below).  This brand was iconic in the 80’s and has recently made a resurgence.  I’m not sure why I didn’t buy any BOY LONDON while I was in London this summer, but I’m making up for it now.  Don’t be surprised to see me rocking something similar to this outfit on the blog very soon!

Show Me Your Luscious Apparatus: My Recoil Contest Entry

Last week on Facebook, the Shunt staff of Alan Wilder’s group Recoil announced a contest called “Show Me Yours” (I added Luscious Apparatus, which is a Recoil song), to celebrate the arrival of the DVD “A Strange Hour in Budapest” (abbreviated as ASH here).  Fans were encouraged to show off their DVDs and any other products they bought having to do with ASH (post here).  I created two entries:  the first entry was a collage that I submitted through Instagram (the second picture seen above).  I then submitted another entry, which actually turned into an outfit post, featuring my rock t-shirt of the week. 

The shirt peaking out from underneath the jacket is my Recoil shirt from the concert where I met Alan Wilder (post here).  That shirt will always remind me of what a wonderful experience it was to meet Alan and see his live show presentation with Paul Kendall.  I also played with the photo editing capabilities of my Acer Iconia tablet, which rendered some cool effects.  By the way, there will be five winners, and each will receive a photo from the concert, signed by Alan.  I have many items signed by him, but knowing that Alan Wilder himself will be picking the winner was the driving decision behind entering the conest.  I’ll be sure to post if I win!

Outfit – Forever 21 faux leather studded biker jacket; Recoil t-shirt; H&M skirt; Sam Edelman “Lorissa” pumps; Wendy Brandes rings; Coach sunnies

Blue Baby Doll

I know the dress isn’t blue, but title of this post is for my shoes.  These are the cute little pumps that I posted about here.  I intended to wear this outfit to my god-daughter’s 18th birthday party a couple of weeks ago.  But because my mom had a reaction to her antibiotic, we ended up in the hospital most of the day and into the evening of the debut.*  I may bring this little outfit along to London for a night out, which is funny because I put this outfit on for the picture, then took it off to spend a quiet night at home. 

Outfit – Forever 21 dress (old); Betsey Johnson shoes from DSW; Rebecca Minkoff MAC purse; Wendy Brandes rings; Michael Kors watch; iSee glasses from GlassesUSA

*(Edited to add that my mom is totally fine.  She was given medication for an infection she didn’t have, so she was taken off the medication and is fully recovered.)

Deep & Wide & Tall

I’ve worn these wide legged jeans once before (here).  I have been on the search for jeans that are just as wide with the same length because I can wear them with shoes of more extreme height.  The search has not been too fruitful, but I am optimistic.  Although I like flare or boot-cut jeans, the fact that the width of these jeans starts at the top of my thigh rather than from just above my knee makes them comfortable.  I’m sure I’ve posted about my search before, so I guess I’m giving an update that it continues.

Outfit:  Forever 21 blouse & tank; Guess jeans;  Jeffrey Campbell “Lita” platforms; Cotton On cardigan; Rebecca Minkoff purse; iSee glasses ℅ GlassesUSA; Vintage earrings; Dominique Cohen for Target necklace

A Bit of Berry

I’m in love with black and navy together, but I decided to brighten it up with my beautiful fuchsia colored Mini MAC.  My husband took these pictures, and although the last shot is blurry, I like movement of it and the fact that the berry color really stands out.

Outfit – H&M cardigan, striped top & stretch mini; Target tights; Forever 21 jacket; Breckelle’s boots (ModCloth); Mini MAC c/o Rebecca Minkoff; Wendy Brandes ring

Sheer & Shorts

It’s unmistakably summer here in San Diego. I wore this running around with my son, going first to the mall then to a birthday party at the park.  It was perfect because it was light, cool and I didn’t have to fuss with it at all.  Dominic and I also jumped around in one of those “bounce houses”.  The elastic at the bottom of the shirt definitely kept my shirt from going places it shouldn’t!

Outfit – Forever 21 shirt; Wet Seal tank; Mossimo for Target shorts; Coconuts sandals; Rebecca Minkoff purse; Michael Kors watch; Tiffany & Co necklace; Juicy Couture & Wendy Brandes rings; Coach Sunnies

Seeing Stars

I love wearing black with indigo/navy blue.  It makes for a clean look, but creates just enough contrast when the light hits the combination the right way.  This duo of colors also made anything white just pop and almost shimmer, like the stars in the dress and the lines of this fantastic Trompe L’oeil version of the Morning After Clutch.

Outfit – Forever 21 dress; Nordstrom cardigan; Gunmetal shoes (posted about here from Gilt); Rebecca Minkoff purse; Simply Vera Wang tights; Michael Kors watch; Juicy Couture ring; Coach sunglasses; Tiffany & Co necklace
