Punk Fashion’s Not Dead (If Tripp NYC Can Help It)

September 24, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

Tripp NYC released images from their S/S 2013 collection, and though I wouldn’t consider this to be one of my favorite lookbooks, I think the clothes–and most specifically, the pants–speak for themselves.

The Heavy Hitters of NYFW

September 13, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

New York Fashion Week gave us some stunning new collections, and in my opinion, a few surprises. I expected to be blown away by The Blonds, as usual, but that ended up not being the case. While their collection was as loud and bold as always, it felt kind of stale–like they were pulling the same old “shocking” tricks without much innovation.

What I also didn’t expect was to be blown away by Anna Sui. Her collection was full of diversity and contrasts–part romantic part playful punk rock.

Of Black Cats, Spikes, and Siouxsie Sioux

June 26, 2012 Posted by rissvandal

Last week a friend of mine asked how I first became interested in punk and goth subcultures. It’s hard to pinpoint something like that, but I told her it was the experience of my first punk show–sloppy guitar riffs and confrontational tri-hawk girls left me forever changed. But shortly after, I realized I think I was converted far before that. I was maybe ten years old when I first heard “Ornaments of Gold” by Siouxsie and the Banshees, and I suspect that might have been the moment I fell in love with the dark side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That being said, when I put together my latest look, I had Banshees’ lead singer, Siouxsie Sioux, in the forefront of my mind.

10 Love-Themed Accessories that Aren’t Sickeningly Sweet

February 5, 2012 Posted by fashionvandals

I’m a self-proclaimed Valentine’s Day hater (always have been, always will be) but I figured I’d sort of acknowledge it. I may hate the holiday, but there are still quite a bit of fun Valentine’s Day appropriate jewelry and accessories out there worth featuring. Here’s the roundup of my favorite love-themed and heart-shaped pieces this year. I tried to look for pieces sweet enough, but not so much as to send you into sugar shock. Ugh…

1. Personalized Red Heart Pendant Locket by Charm Accents

2. Chains of Love Choker by Ghost Love

NYC Sex Trash

October 12, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

I guess I have a love/hate relationship with Lady Gaga, so when I heard the woman who designed the lingerie in Gaga’s “Born This Way” video  had an online shop, I was like “ehhh…do I really wanna zone in on something Gaga-related?” But NYC Sex Trash has some killer lingerie pieces, and that I can’t deny.

A Reminder That Everything is Better With Spikes

September 14, 2011 Posted by fashionvandals

In a little more than a week I’ll be going on a little weekend trip to attend a couture fashion show in Philly. I’m not exactly sure what I plan on wearing just yet, but one thing I do know is that it needs to involve spikes.

While searching for some shoe inspiration, two particular shops caught my attention. Everlastinglifashion makes, holy crap, the most bad-ass bridal shoes I have ever seen. (more…)
