{fashion folio} skull candy

Skull Candy
H&M Jumper in Light Pink + True Religion Stella Skinny Jeans in Whiskey Blue + Pour La Victoire Elle Cap Toe Pumps in Blush / White + Bing Bang Skull Studs in Yellow + Kristen Elspeth Triple Oval Necklace in Gold + MAKE UP FOR EVER Powder Blush in Candy Pink 85 + Dior Addict Lip Polish in Fresh Expert + Smashbox Love Me Paint Pen Eye Liner in Jet Black

Matchy-matchy ensembles essentially left my mind the moment I saw Whitney Port subtly reprimanded for being 'too matchy-matchy’ in her styling when she reported for her first day at Teen Vogue on The Hills. That said, I have nothing against a monochromatic look from time to time – especially when the majority of the monochrome is made up of makeup to complement something as perfect as a cozy Angora sweater in a cotton candy hue.

Wear it off-the-shoulder, allowing a simple pendant necklace to peek out to add a sultry touch to the girly shade; and balance the slouchiness with a pair of hip-hugging, light-wash skinny jeans for a casual, low-key luxe effect. A cap-toe pump keeps the look playful; while the addition of skull stud earrings provide just the right amount of edge. Slick on an ultra-shiny, sheer gloss {with a hint of pink}, coupled with a heavy-hand of vibrant, bright pink shadow for femininity; and turn up the glam with jet black winged liner for a truly tough touch. It’s the ideal balance of rock ‘n’ roll meets pop tart - and so fab for date night.

Oh yes, I prefer to call it "monochromatic," not "matchy-matchy" ;) I'm loving the bit of edge those skull earrings give this look!

Happy Thursday!

Love the toe cap pumps! Hmmm, wow I totally forgot that whitney port was subtly reprimanded for being to matchy with her clothes. Speaking of whitney port, I miss wathcing the hills.

Anywho, this is really put together for that "rock n roll meets pop tart" look. Its really cute.
