Runs Deep

I've been going back to my teen days lately, when it comes to music, anyway. Been listening to all the bands I used to listen to when I was 16. From First To Last, Hawthorne Heights, Taking Back Sunday, Aiden, Senses Fail, Further Seems Forever, Dashboard Confessional, you know, when Emo was what the hipsters listened to before they became hipsters xD
Oh, and this is my Armory jacket. I'm trying to cover it in band patches from bands who play at my venue, The Armory. It's gonna look sick if I can pull it off ;)

And yeah, I know my tights have a horrible run in them...I wore them once before my nail went through the ankle and turned into a run all the way up to my thigh...ugh I'm so pissed about it. I've had these for a while but haven't wanted to wear them because they are practically ruined....xP

Anyway, Happy Easter, Rebels,

It Is Finished

Today is Holy Saturday. When Jesus was in Hell paying the price for our sins and kicking some serious Lucifer A.$.$. The Bible doesn't talk much about it, but I like to picture Lucifer's face when he goes from thinking he finally won, to the realization that Jesus has won all along. For us. Man, I can't wait to get to heaven. The first thing I do is going to be to run up to Jesus, sit at his feet next to a big lion friend, and say, "Jesus, tell me about that time you were in Hell kicking butt for me and the rest of your kids."

But that's me ;)

I'm Gonna Make You

Top: Thrifted | Shorts: DIY H&M | Shoes: Demonia Creepers | Suspenders: Claire's | Rosary: Vintage | Socks: Forever21

I may have gone a liiiiiittle camera crazy....but hey, that's what happens when you put on an outfit that makes you feel like a babe, right? ;) I've been doing a bit better lately, which probably has a little to do with the fact that I FINALLY settled on a new [used] car and I'm just waiting to get the financing and annoying details sorted out and I should have it before or by my birthday next week. Sweet timing, I know haha. God is good and has definitely orchestrated this entire thing, I have no doubt about it. ANYWHORE, I'm shamelessly obsessed with my leather shorts and suspenders. A few things that I will be on the lookout for though, are sandals, sunnies and denim shorts for the summer. I should probably look into some new creepers too. As you can kinda see, my left one has been duct taped together because my ex boyfriend's adorable dog decided they were just too perfect NOT to chew on....yeah I know.

The Desert Calls My Name

Dress: Cotton On | Top: Wet Seal | Boots: Dr. Martens | Necklace: Forever 21 | Headpiece: Handmade

This is my contest entry for Forever 21's Festival Foto Contest. I would love to win a trip to L.A. just because I love all things SoCal and the one short trip I made to the west coast wasn't enough to satisfy me but it was just enough to make me fall in love. BUT even if I don't win, I love any excuse to dress up and take photos nowadays. :) I don't know if there will be a voting period or not but if there is, I'll be sure to let you know so you can help me out ;) haha until then, why not enter your own awesome self?

I had so many possible festival outfits... it was almost impossible to decide on ONE, but I did and I am happy with it. I love this dress and I had fun making my head piece. I've been wanting to make one of those for a long long time haha

It's Been Swell, But The Swelling's Gone Down

Top: DIY Tank Girl Tee | Shorts: DIY H&M | Leggings: Rue 21 | Boots: Dr. Martens | Coat: Thrifted

Tank Girl is my dream girl. What, straight girls can't have dream girls? I have two. Tank Girl and Allison Mosshart. I also have strong, thick, healthy thighs. Deal with it. It means I could kick your butt with them, got it memorized? ;)

Major Headache, Sir

T-Shirt: Official Merch | Leggings: Pac Sun | Boots: Dr. Martens | Beanie: ZulamimiLand

This is probably the reason people are surprised when I tell them I'm going to be 22 in less than 30 days.  They usually ask something like, "You're like what, 18, right?"
Next time I'm just going to say yes.
"Yes sir, Major Headache, sir!"

Tear Smeared and Brittle

Sweater: Thrifted | Jeans: Alloy | Boots: Dr. Martens

Yes, I am newly single. Yes, it was my decision. No, it wasn't what I wanted. Yes, it was unexpected but it was also necessary. Yes, it is a very tough time in my life right now. No, I am in no way interested in anything with anyone else at this time. All I can say is it is out of my hands now and I have to take one day at a time.

It's All Just Stupid Anyway

Top: Cozmic KillJoy | Pants: Thrifted | Hoodie: Pac Sun | Boots: Dr. Martens

I'll be making more of the shirt I'm wearing in the near future. I've been wearing this hoodie non stop since I bought it two weeks ago. It's so warm and soft. I can rarely afford Pac Sun sweatshirts but when I can, I always prefer them. My boots are dark blue velvet and I love them so much it's borderline insanity.
I've been dealing with some personal issues which is my main excuse for the lack of "DAILY" outfit posts lately. No one actually follows me or participates or supports this anyway so I guess it doesn't really matter. I don't have the time to invest in advertising or networking for this thing, so it's going to have to grow slowly on it's own. That's fine. I'm not looking to be the next rookie or anything, anyway.
