Friday, I’m in Love: Comics, Crystals, and Bad Batz-Maru

February 7, 2013 Posted by rissvandal

I’ve come across a lot of great finds lately, though not all of them warrant their own post, so today I thought I’d mention a few of the odds and ends I’ve been psyched about and dying to share. I’m thinking this should be a recurring feature–sharing not just my favorite fashion and beauty finds, but anything else that’s made an impression, including from housewares, websites, and maybe even the occasional dose of nerdness.

Bad Kitty Rider Jacket by UNIF Clothing / Badtz Maru Skirt by Japan L.A.

Studded outerwear and biker jackets are basically a wardrobe staple at this point, and are becoming kind of tired, so I’m glad to see that UNIF continues to add variety and innovation to the trend. They have a lot of great designs–studded army jackets, spiked fur coats, but their Bad Kitty jacket is my top pick. As for the Badtz Maru overall skirt…would I wear it? That I’m not so sure about, but I love it. And while a lot of people roll their eyes at grown women rocking Sanrio, why give up something you love just because of age? And if that thing you love just happens to come in the form of a badass miniskirt, even better.

YRU’s Sky-High Perfection

January 13, 2013 Posted by rissvandal

YRU–“created to create; inspired to inspire; liberated to liberate”–or in other words, badass, innovative designs, and my new favorite shoe brand to lust over.

YRU has a punk rock edge with high-end polish, and their platforms hit me with a dose of Spice Girl-era nostalgia. My fave from the collection is this pink and black leopard beauty, but more in theory than application–I’m a total chicken when it comes to shoe heights.

Look Stupid Festive Without Losing Your Cool Kid Points

December 16, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

This is not a post about ironic Christmas sweaters–no one needs another post about that. If I was going to talk about sweaters, the only one worth mentioning is this He-Man and Shera one from 80s Tees, but I’m not, so who cares. What this post is about, is how to look super festive, but without losing your edge.

It’s that time of year again–time for my hand-picked gift guide, which I hope will help you as you rack your brain figuring out what to buy for all your friends with wicked style (yes, this is just catered to people with wicked style–for help buying gifts for everyone else, go look at someone else’s gift guide). And okay, I couldn’t cover every base.

So just check out what I’ve got for ya…

Welcome to Clown Town

June 16, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want you to think for one second that I don’t absolutely love everything pictured here. But at the same time, I’ll admit that there are some aspects of fashion that are straight-up ridic.

Time to Find Out Where All The Real Cool Kids Have Been Hiding…

June 15, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

I just found out about an awesome project via La Carmina’s blog, and I felt the need to pass the word along. Photographer Danielle Levitt is currently scouring the country for alt-kids (goths, punks, scenesters, jrockers, etc) to photograph and interview for a project focusing on youth subcultures.

Any young people on the fringe of the mainstream can be considered for the project, no matter where your location. So if this sounds at all like something you might want to be a part of–celebrating your subculture and personal style–be sure to check out all of the details here. Danielle’s work is great, and I’m actually really excited about this.
