Snakelets, Leather and Neon

April 24, 2009

Topshop jacket, vintage dress, Amy Appy leggings, Colonial Madness boots, and snakelets.

((The snakes play well together and I am well pleased.  Get them here. ))

The newly dubbed ‘holy grail’ of black ankle boots showed up at my door yesterday much to the relief of my right index finger after having refreshed the UPS tracking page about 3,542 times.  I love these boots.  I love them so much.  The combo of architecture, cutouts, and overall badassery made them worth trading in the Guess boots.  I think I left my UO shopping days behind on a high note.  A very high note indeed.

**in sharp contrast to my earlier rant, if any of you want a 10% discount at UO online, use the code SPRING09 at checkout**

Yesterday also was the day I purchased two of the brightest nail colors in the history of the world.  I was having a pretty fugged up week and thought it better to spend $10 on nail junk than an undetermined amount in American Apparel (retail therapy = credit card use.  BIG NO GO.  I just paid them all off and am in no hurry to charge anything else).

I figured neon would make me feel better and damn if it didn’t.  Orly’s “Chica Boom” is on the left hand and “OMG” is on the right.  If I find a shade of highlighter yellow that I can diddy bop with, the collection will be complete.

I was asked how one integrates neon nails into an outfit.  Let me think about that and get back to you.  In the meantime, here are some great uses of neon clothing:  Susie, Karla, some chick Sarty shot, Sarty’s shot of Susie, Shini, and more Susie.  The Bubbster is so damn sick with it.

Don’t forget about the ChickDowntown.com giveaway!

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.
