I L*o*V*E the look of the kick *ss chic.
Nothing makes me happier than when I wear a skull tee.
I mean, maybe some things. Wearing a skull on my shirt makes me feel tough and confident. Kick Ass, even. I feel like I’m the toughest chick around, alter ego come save me from myself. I’m the girl who owns a motorcycle, the girl who is independent. Reckless. Loudly wild. When I get ready my hair can be a little messy, no need to straighten my curls. At night I don’t wash off my eye makeup because I love the way it looks when I wake up…dark circles drowning my eyes, like I’ve been up all night having a good time. I slide on my skull tee leaving remnants of yesterday, add some wings to the corner of my eyes, and lay on another layer of mascara. It reminds me a little of Helena Bonham Carter from Fight Club, this look of mystique and allure. Who is that girl? What does she do? Add more bronzer, a wee bit of ruby bright MAC lips to smack. Not to be confused with trying too hard.
I love this skull shirt because of the detailing on the skull, like a smiling dead skull. There is even a small cross at the top of the skull, little detailing like that gives the t-shirt a little bit of a gothic edge making it more stylish than scary, which reminds me why I love the gold cross ring; hella gangsta. The ring is straight up tough. The jeans are perfect because they’re black, ultra slim, and merge perfectly with wedge sneakers.
I love the heeled sneakers because you get height, comfort and style. A kind of nomad. The outfit pops with the red collared leather bomber.Collar necks are in right now, and the bomber has its own white one built-in. Kick ass chick!

My client Foxy Vintage and I have a wonderful real-ationship. She has the prettiest vintage wears. Like no, really vintage, and they’re utterly gorgeous. And I… am lucky enough to have been hired to tell the world about them.
As her Fashion Description Writer, I’ve created many fashionably elevated stories designed to add emphasis to her already perky designs. And O heavens was it fun!
I talk about jumpers, skirts, and cardigans like these:
I had to find a way to blend my love for fashion as I’ve worked as a Visual Merchandiser at Forever21, and in Visual Merchandising for Abercrombie & Fitch as well. Fashion Styling was great, but my love, my ultimate love… is in Web Work and Writing. I gathered a few associates and we teamed up as Editors, and now we take clients that would like SEO rich fashion or product descriptions to enhance their websites. I have found the perfect balance.
In this post I have to give thanks to those few that have worked tirelessly to help me meet deadlines, and juggle personalized web packages—ones that all pass Copyscape. Yes, I’ve been swamped, but happily busy and loving every second of it. When I decline friends and family for lunch and dinner dates I happily quote Karl “People who do a job that claims to be creative have to be alone to recharge their batteries. You can’t live 24 hours a day in the spotlight and remain creative. For people like me, solitude is a victory.” Don’t worry, I still love you all, I’m just focused.
My clients are awesome, especially Foxy, and her items are unique, creative, and of a great quality. I know for a fact—I have some of her purses in my closet right now! If you like her store, find out more or follow along kiddies: @foxyvintage.

“It is in his pleasures that a man really lives, it is from his leisure that he constructs the true fabric of self.”
The above title is a quote from Dinty Moore’s Craft book, as said by Charles Lamn and Sir Walter Scott in a contemplative essay by Agnes Repplier.
In the middle of acquiring two new Fashion Product description clients—thanks guys, I’m looking forward, I took a moment to breathe, and look at my pretty frikkin pup:
She’s adorbs. My absolute love.
O, and about the size of my cordless phone (but 2 lbs, 10 ounces) and full-grown.
She keeps thinking she’s a bulldozer when she barks, so I got her the perfect t-shirt today.
And then, if I didn’t jump out of my heartbeat enough looking at her cuteness—
she decided she didn’t wanna be photogenic for her Mom this afternoon.
Often, I think she’s even smarter than I am; just look at this face—studious.
Now if she can just get these edits done for me all will be well.
I’ve written poems for him. He’s innovative, incredibly creative, unique, marvelous to speak to and easy to learn from. A friend of mine asked me the other day “if I even knew what I’d look for in a man if I were looking?” I suppose he meant to inquire about what the most attractive attributes the man I’d love and marry and potentially cook butterbuns in the oven for would have. I realized I hadn’t put too much thought into “Superman,” and who can ever be exactly correct in saying, but after a bit of thought some of those qualities and traits might be:
- Ambitious/Driven/Goal Oriented
- Open Minded
As far as physical attributes he’d be handsome, a cul-de-sac type of smile that turns you around in a complete circle, pretty teeth, polished and well-put together look. He’d be well-dressed, confident, successful, and know how to take care of his family. What do you all look for in a significant lover?
I suppose the man I am in love with is also either the creator of these Lace Up Skate Boots (which I loOove more than any) or he is a fictional character that just doesn’t exist. I can’t tell which.
