(Topshop flute one shoulder dress, Armor Ume body chain, Jeffrey Campbell boots)

A dress this pretty needs some random accessorizing to make it feel That single sheer floaty sleeve kills me. Last time I wore it this was accomplished with a patent harness but this body chain that Sandee from Armor sent me is a clear upgrade, and not only because it lacks Velcro. The chains are thick and dark (sorry if it sounds like I’m talking about blood..and that you’re now thinking about blood) and the link sizes are varied four times over. That way it looks more like it came from medieval times, which is of course what we all want. Since a mithril vest is out of the question. Thank you Sandee, especially since I thought I had seen every last incarnation and limb usage possible in a body chain. I’m picturing it with a non-existent tank top and aviators next.

Had a couple photo shoots with Japanese magazines at my house this week..always fun to do anything with Japan even if it means frantically straightening the place so I don’t seem like a freak and coming up with 14 summer outfits when I’m still lingering on boots and thigh highs…that I’ll probably still be wearing well into summer. Cause making sense is no fun.

Kristin gave me a bottle of her new nail polish to play with. Following up winter’s poison-looking Dickweed is Jizz. Read more about it here, here, and here.

Also pictured: my new skull ring courtesy of Leviticus (better shots to come), Grey Ant Status shades, and Urbn headscarf.

Thank you to Gail Sorronda for sending me this’s covered in netted sequins giving it an asteroid look and a texture unlike anything else in my closet. Make sure to check out the exotic lash mask and black chalk bag on the site..beautiful and pretty ideal to fling carelessly on your dresser to make it look that much cooler.

I’ve been dressing more for warmth and comfort for nights out (the usual trashy crap with functional jacket and tights…not really that different I guess) it’s more fun to save the naked dresses for trips to whatever field is closest to the freeway. I mean adding outerwear would defeat the purpose here right? I had no idea this dress would cut across the body so crazily when I held it up for the first time in my living room (actually I had no idea what to make of it in general) so that was a err fun surprise when I pulled it on in the car. Somewhere along the way I stopped trying clothes on properly..that’s probably not for the best but sometimes planning ruins everything. A lot of my favorite outfits have been the result of putting together whatever’s in my backseat. Is that just me?

I’ve gotten a lot of emails about these shoes..I think they’ve been re-released? I’m not sure but that’s what someone said. Right now Kumo is nestled up against them. They’re very popular apparently. For the record, they’re really comfortable and run true to size.

Playing around with Kristin after hours at RVCA. I forgot about all the things that printed pictures allow you to do. Wearing a bunch of sheer nude pieces scavenged from a 20 foot radius and cut up.
