ART_Skull Coffin Deck

IMG_1075 I finally have finished my baby! I call it that because I have put so much time and thought into this board. This is the first (and only) deck I have made by hand; I learned in a skate deck shaping class at my school last year, and this was the result! It then took me a while, but many sketches later I came up with a design. I talk about the design process a bit in the video below, that also gives you some good shots of the art and details. Please check it out, it's a more personal discussion about the art, which I am excited to continue doing in the future!

OOTD_84: "She is Beautiful"

DSC_0719 I now wish I had worn a dress today because it was so warm out, but today I opted for an edgy version of a Valentine's Day look! This Alkaline Trio tee has some red hearts on it, so I started with that and paired it with my favorite red blazer. The rest of the look followed suit from the t shirt in all black, and I finished it off with my spiked headband and new arrow ring! My parents sent me it as a gift today and I love it!

I picked the track for today because it's a sort of unconventional love song by a badass artist, Andrew WK. Listen along here to "She is Beautiful" while you view!

OOTD 83: "7 Minutes in Heaven"

DSC_0693 Today's outfit is full of my favorite pieces: skulls, a DIY tee, denim, leggings, and Vans. Yep, perfect combination. This outfit risks looking very casual, almost like a painting day or something, but adding interest with some textured leggings and a cool acid wash to your shirt can be all the difference you need to spice up the look.

Today's outfit title comes from the Fall Out Boy song "7 Minutes in Heaven." Listen along here while you view! Who else is excited that they're making a comeback? And what did you think of their new song?

I'm on the hunt for more fun leggings like the ones i'm wearing to replace my old black ones that are falling apart. I'm loving these. Have you seen any lately that you love?

OOTD_80: "Breaking & Entering"

DSC_0586 i recently put my christmas money to use, and decided to style all 3 of my purchases into one outfit! i was in a black and white mood and picked up this colorblocked moto jacket (for 25 bucks!) from the Nasty Gal sale, and paired it with my new Vans Sk8 Hi's. i'd been eyeing these shoes for a few months and knew they'd be a great addition to my Vans collection. i almost opted for the platform version, but decided to get a pair that i could also skate in. i love how they add a classic skate style to my looks and are a little more dramatic than ones i've purchased in the past

with an all black and white look, i love the pop of color that my new ear cuff adds to my look. i am crushing hard on everything that is sold on By Samii Ryan and love the element of interest mine adds to my look!

the styling for this outfit kinda reminds me of Jenna McDougall of Tonight Alive. therefore, the track for today's outfit is "Breaking & Entering" by the band. if you don't know about them, listen below!
