I can’t get Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat” out of my head! Did anyone else see her AMA’s performance? UGH. So good. Thank you, Lorde, for making headbanging, thrash-dancing OK again for girls. Love her.
All things considered, of course I had to do a Lorde look! The mood I’m feeling is red, like passion, fire, ferocity. Rawr.
To get her hair, a style I’ve loved forever, I mixed two hairs from Tableau Vivant’s November Collabor88 collection. It’s long, wavy, ultra thick and wild. I love mixing hairs, and I have booN to thank for initially giving me the idea to do this years ago (this one is a LeLutka combo, but who’s keeping track?) - their hair pieces are truly inspiring- and Cora for first mixing the TV hairs on her amazeballs blog.
I love this Pixicat top from Collabor88 November, and I had to work it in like a sporty-gothic type “bra” into my outfit. I never thought “sporty” and “gothic” could be used in unison to describe a piece of clothing, but it’s fitting for this piece! The top also comes with a skirt, OR as a dress…love them all!
My culottes are new from Ryvolter, and truth be told, I wanted them to be pants (I have an old pair of Ryvolter satin pants from a past Collabor88, but they’re navy and I think they’re unavailable now. buh.) However, I like the culottes better now that the outfit is finished. They have a certain je ne sais quoi and I don’t give an eff about them. You have to do your thing if you want to pull of culottes.
The killer heels are Maitreya for Collabor88 November. Nothing but the best and fiercest heels would work here. I love how Onyx can make a sexy pair of heels look classic and chic…this style could easily look like a pair of stripper heels, what with their spike heels and platforms and cherry-red color, but they are refined, lady-like and classic. It’s all in the details, I can’t emphasize that enough. The heels serve the perfect balance of uptown to my very downtown look.
Going to go replay YFB again, and again. Rock life & be yourself. XO, Abra
ps. Necklace is Amala…simple, bold, classic, LOVE! And I don’t always shout out my eyes, but they are The Skinnery’s Maple Collection eyes and they are SO SEXY!
