a pair of new shoes and a punk rock show to see




Outfit Details: 
chambray shirt - c/o Madewell 
mustard sweater - thrifted  
toffee ikat jeans - c/o 7 For All Mankind  
Gemma heels - c/o Cynthia Vincent
bag - c/o Rebecca Minkoff (from last summer)
bracelets - Forever 21
rings - vintage (gift from mom) and Simple Twist on Etsy
nails - China Glaze Aquadelic
lipstick - MAC Russian Red 
umbrella - cheap piece of crap



 
 
Well gee, I wonder why I've had a hard time kicking that sickness. I mean, I only wore open toed shoes in the rain and then went out to a show the same night (I wore a more sensible outfit for that, at least).

I want you to know that it was difficult for me to refrain from the obvious pun when titling this post. And if the pun isn't obvious enough, it was "It's raining ikats and dogs." I love a good pun, but I love The Shape of Punk to Come even more. How the two can coexist in one's world is beyond me. I'm a weird girl. But it keeps people on their toes, it does.

  1. i went to school in upstate new york, where it rained incessantly... so, one would think i would invest in a fine and working umbrella.

    nope. always cheap pieces of crap.

    hope you are feeling better, punk shows tend to be worth illness and maiming and other such manifestations of delinquency.

  47. I am usualy jeaous of your ability to style a great outfit using both high end and thrift finds. But now I can add seeing Refused to the jealousy list. A handuful of friends got tickts and saw them, but it just wasnt in the cards for my fiance and I.

  56. This is the first pair of Ikat patterned pants I've seen. Everyone seems to be wearing floral, which I love, but these pants are really fun & unique.
