Outfit Post: "Big Dreams, Gangster..."

"Big dreams, gangster, 
Said you had to leave to start your life over..."
 - Lana del Ray, Blue Jeans







SHOES: SAM EDELMAN
TOP: AMERICAN APPAREL
BELLY CHAIN: EBAY
 TALON CUFF: EBAY
STONE CUFF: PRIMARK
CHAINS: EBAY, HEALING EARTH, & GALWAY BEAD STORE

I think it's probably getting pretty evident by my Lookbook titles that I'm loving Lana del Ray's album lately. Sure, I'm also listening to other stuff too, but her lyrics make for some pretty good outfit titles, don't you think? I like to think myself as somewhat of gangster, and I most certainly have big dreams :) I'm so happy the weather is getting warmer, even if only enough to finally  be able to lose all those layers of clothing for a few decent photos! This is my favourite kind of outfit, a dash of boho, a dash of grunge, and a nice dose of trinket jewellery :) This is also first appearance of one of my favourite pair of shoes, the beautiful Zoe Boot from Sam Edelman. These beauties have been on my lust list for over a year now, so you can only imagine my elation when I found they were half off in the current Nasty Gal sale... Rejoice!

Anyhow, I have a few bits of news and fun things to announce in the next few days, so stay tuned homies!

GIRL CRUSH: LANA DEL RAY

As divided as the public may seem about her, I must confess, I am a fan of the Del Rey. Her music, her style, and her pageant-queen-meets-girl-next-door beauty. The genuine article or not, her music does it for me, it fills that guilty-pleasure pop-music void that I've had since Gaga's last album. Not to mention I think that whole self "gangster-Nancy Sinatra" look she has going on is killer. I feel the sheer amount backlash she's been getting since  "Video Games"  is unjustified, some of the reviews are just downright nasty. Whether or not she is an entirely self-made character or not doesn't affect my enjoyment of her music and her style. It is pop music after all. If she is just playing a character, then so be it, I like the character she plays :)
