Heavy Metal Princess

I normally try to really edit down the number of photos I post per outfit because few things are more annoying that seventeen pictures of the same outfit/pose on a blog, but this is probably my favorite outfit ever. Like ever ever. If I were to try and explain my personality/style in any way, this might very well be it. It's pretty and pink, but totally edgy and fun. And I probably just made myself sound like a bafoon! Please forgive me.

I couldn't wait to wear my new Lita Spikes so I took them for a stroll yesterday when I had a little sweet coffee date with Maya. We headed over to Fiddlecakes on 8th and indulged in sweet treats and coffee. We talked about things that make us uncomfortable (like the feeling of terra cotta + unfinished porcelain, and the word "hangnail"), and shop/cafe dreams. She's totally like my soul sister and I'm loving her being in Nashville! If you haven't checked out her blawg then you absolutely should! After Fiddlecakes we ventured over to Textile Fabrics and rummaged through some of the most amazing printed cotton. She's a sewing + baking extroidinaire so I've pretty much volunteered her to ~*teach me her ways. One year of fashion design in college isn't quite cutting it these days! We said our goodbyes and then I picked up Mike for a late lunch at Chipotle. Then we ran a million and seven errands which included getting my Xterra back (Both CarMax + Nissan are at a loss for what happened to my car the other night. Let's just hope it doesn't happen on our trip to Chicago coming up!) Last night I had Mike make a handful of phone calls for me (I have like phone phobia. I hate talking on the phone to strangers!) and I bribed him with his choice of dinner. Works every time! Now we're taking it easy and about to watch a Paul Rudd movie I snagged for $5! (Have y'all seen Our Idiot Brother?! So good! I love P.Rudd so hard!) Anyway, that'll about do it for this entry I think! Oh, can I just say how much middle aged dudes + little old ladies love my shoes?! I've gotten stopped so many times by people generations older. Then again I think the vast majority of the population (y'all included maybe?!) think they're fug... but honestly, I'm in love!

  15. I really love this outfit, the pink dress is so cute, it looks like icing! I love the shoes as well, how can one ever seriously go wrong with spikes? Okay, I can think of ways spikes could be bad, like somehow accidentally put on your bed but anywho, you look gorgeous.

    Terra Cotta does feel really weird and I have yet to see 'Our Idiot Brother' I will have to netflix it. I have a phone phobia too, I rarely call people I know as well. I hate talking on the phone.

  23. I'm not surprised you love this outfit- it's fab!
    I can't believe that dress is H&M either- it looks so expensive!
    You look amazing.

  24. MY BOSS ASKED ME TO WRITE ON CARDBOARD TODAY (which is crazy, it would totally touch/scratch/ew the side of my hand!) The only excuse I could think of was "I have to go to the bathroom." So I went to the bathroom and just stood there quietly until enough time had passed. Then I forgot to open the door before turning off the light. Good story.

  25. Ok. I had to comment. I have phone phobia too! And it is the worst because I totally feel fine face to face but calling a stranger on the phone makes me sweat... I feel like a total flake asking Matt (my husband) to do it....

  28. This is definitely my favorite outfit of yours you've ever posted! It just goes so well together! Also, I'm so jealous of your ever-growing lita collection...and that the older generations are digging the spiked ones, I totally agree with them.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is fantastic! I love the mix of edgy and adorable in this outfit. Your shoes are amazing.

  32. OOooh!!! I *love* this outfit! I'm totally with you on the pink and girly, but totally edgy and fun. I think there is nothing better than a woman who can be girly and love pink and sparkles and all the goodness, but still be tough, fearless and get her hands dirty when need be. That's what I strive to be, and you already are. <3

    Thanks so much for sharing this outfit. You make me want to get a pair of Jeffery Campbells.
