Boop Oop A Doop
Today's outfit isn't anything special or post-worthy, but the accessories do deserve a little bit of attention! The shoes I want to wear all the time because they are just so much fun to prance around in. The heel is pretty substantial and easy to walk in, they are mega comfy and visually, they are pretty sick. Not sure what look I was going for today, all I know is that I definitely wanted to wear lace with the shoes, as some sort of pretty and delicate/mad and modern juxtaposition. This jacket gets a lot of wear during the cold months. From the front its pretty feminine, with the fur collar and waist ties, yet from the back, its a whole other story. It has the look of a typical motorcycle jacket, and has a 'toughness' that ties in with the slutty shoes. The Betty Boop bag I absolutely fell in love with when I first bought it. I've always loved Betty Boop, I even used to look like her... when I was 16, I cut my hair really short, and let my naturally curly wild hair loose, people used to comment that with my pin up style, short black hair and red lips I looked like her. Betty Boop imagery aside, the bag is still pretty cute in its own right. Its made of clear plastic, with black piping and a little tassel, and has a Japanese feel to it (to me, anyway). I don't use it nearly enough, as it is a little awkward to carry and I'm forever afraid of smashing it.
