Okay, so this post is extremely belated thanks to moving being so damn ANNOYING. I do a lot of inner monologue ”venting” while I pack, and well let’s just say I need to get it out!
I’m going to try something new out so bear with me. WHAT THE WEEK is for the busy folk who between work, school, food, animals, blogging, partying, facebook, instagram, kids, or whateve, just don’t have time to stay up to date to the every day extent of street style news. On Sundays I’m just gonna blast whatever rad shit happened in the past week. I would love your input, opinions, or shit talking… so bring it! #realtalk
Here’s some coolness that happened this past week..
Thanks to Dollskill we were all blessed with the release of UNIF’s Spring 2013 wear. I DIE. I know other pastel-goth-grunge-loving-flower/moon princesses must also be COMEing to this radness. I’ve had problems even just pretending to shop because I want everythingggg. The ‘cake’ sweater is perfection. The ‘Take Me’ sweater reminds me of a childhood choker necklace I wore daily that said “TAKE ME TO YOUR LEADER” with an alien sign. I know, I know, I was obviously really cool.
Moving on to the Nasty Gal Collection Spring 2013. This line debuted some pretty sweet items in brillent pastel colors.. Personally these expensive bathing suits/workout apparel looking dresses just do not do it for me. Don’t get me wrong, I can enjoy the thought of wearing them, but I just cannot see myself actually purchasing anything. When it comes down to it, I always choose shoes over splurging on swimsuits. I really wish I could pull a onsie swimsuit off, for some reason I always feel like I look extra awkward. Maybe that will be my goal this spring. My favorite item is the Outer Limits Bomber Jacket. I would probably pretend to workout a whole lot more if owned it! The rest of my picks are from their newest Spring arrivals. White is not usually a color I wear, but hmm maybe this season will be a first for everything..
Let’s see, oh Solestruck released a “Polaroid of Shoes” mini lookbook. They seem to be going under some technical difficulties and I cannot find a working link to the lookbook, but check their IG in the mean time. I am a sucker for film, so I was a big fan of the astehetics. Of all shoes The Deandri- Hansel in all white stole my heart.
Last year, I stumbled across Deandri on insta prior actual shoe release, and knew after a quick photo browse she was gonna kill it. I’ve been contemplating which style to order! I love the chunky Tequila platforms, but the wedge-platform-ish boot has been calling my name since I missed out on the SS x JC collab. As much as I heart the all white, I will probably decide on black, my go to color for everything.
Finally, in the midst of dying while super hungover and packing up my hoardings, (not sure if that’s a word) I stole some iPhone time when Porpe wasn’t looking. These adorable faces greeted me in my email, and brought the most appreciated smile to my face.
I fucking love Christeric, Eric, their dog Nightmare, and the other creeps involved with UNIF. Christine Lau, aka Christeric, what Nasty Gall calls “the rainbow-clad grunge fairy” is my forever girl crush inspiration. If you aren’t familiar with her style blog, I hope your night is free because you’re gonna be addicted. I died and went to heaven when I first discovered her Charles Anastase Dungeon Boot inspired DIY (YUP the official 1st hellbound prototype). Her note to him was the perfect touch. Anyways back to the point, Nasty Gal gave us a glimpse into the wondrous world of UNIF and you should check it out here.
Promise I will be on time next week. YUPPYSCUM <3′s you!
