I could kill you with my shoulder.
Like any small, ambiguously ethnic girl with dark hair, people are quick to think my favorite compliment is “You look very Kim K today!” And you know what? They’d be right. Seriously, there is no way in hell I am not extremely pleased when I hear that.
So it’s only right that I love to rock a good blazer. So when I found this GEM at Zara, clearly, we fell in love.
This awesome blazer is black, goes to about mid-calf, and is adorned with a bunch of silver spiked on the shoulders. I LOOK LIKE RIHANNA WHEN I WEAR THIS.
One of my favorite things about blazers are that they are so versatile, and by “versatile” I mean: you can wear a dress made up of soda bottle caps and dental floss but once you put on a blazer, OHMYGOD YOU LOOK SO CLASSY GIRL. SERIOUSLY. It really takes a skanky outfit from “cheap” to “not so cheap” in like, 5 seconds. The other day I saw a girl walking around at the club with a blazer and everyone was like “ohhhh snap, is the Secretary of State here tonight?” ‘cuz she looked really professional and stuff. I think she was completely naked underneath the blazer. Whatever though.
The blazer says “I’m a busy woman who has a real job and no time for nonsense”, but the spikes say “Do you see me? I’m spiky. Yeah. That’s right. I don’t care about rules because I make my own rules. I speed up when I see yellow lights while driving and I repeatedly push the ‘close doors’ button on elevators when I see people running to make it.”
I think my obsession with this blazer comes from my obsession with spikes. It’s getting serious, guys. Here’s other spiky shit I currently own:
Like, I own spiked motorcycle boots. I wear these. In real life. No big deal. Am I the kind of girl who possibly rides a motorcycle after work to “unwind”? Maybe. Do I spend my weekends in NYC, partying with Ke$ha and adding dollar signs where S’s would normally be found? Po$$ibly. Do I go around at 9am with smeared eyeliner and awesome crazy bedhead because I don’t care what society thinks of me? I might.
Sadly, no. I don’t do any of those things. But I do own some dope Tallberg boots with spikes. And these shorts!
These spiked BDG High Rise Cheeky Shorts have bronze spikes going down the sides and I love these so hard. You can wear it with a blank tank top and then dress it down with Chucks or dress them up with black heels and look equally awesome. When it gets colder, you can wear them with a long sleeved white tee and black tights underneath the shorts- and now you look badass and French which is a look I’ve been trying to perfect for years.
Now I’m not a fan of buying things from Wet Seal mainly cuz, you know, I don’t like my shit breaking in 30 seconds but one day I was stalking some girl at the mall to find out where she got this amazing sheer top and she surprisingly said, Wet Seal. So I booked it over there and as I was buying the top, the nice, freakishly thin and pale girl at the cash wrap said that the promo they had today was buy one, GET SOMETHING ELSE FOR A PENNY.
I’ll wait and let that marinate a little bit…
Yeah, a penny. That’s the kind of store Wet Seal is. So, I decided to browse around when I spotted these really adorable spiked hoop earrings. Yeah. I bought them. And I don’t regret a single penny I spent on it either.
