psycho candy

I hope you all had a super rad Halloween! ^o^ I'm *still* recovering from basically eating my weight in gummy eyeballs over the weekend, so that's why it's taken me forever to post here. I don't have any costume pics to share with you today (I still have to get them together), but I do have an outfit from Halloween that I figured I should post. This was my pre-costume getup from Halloween day, which I think would be best described as ~sixties mod girl goes trick-or-treating~. Looking back on it now, I wish I had used a candy bucket for a purse! (or would that have been too much? haha) o.~

❣outfit details❣ 
dress - vintage | tights - ASOS | ring - c/o Now or Never Jewelry | shoes - Doc Martens

I'm really not that into the whole photo-realistic tights/socks trend, but these sweetie tights from ASOS are one of the few exceptions I've made. Who could resist having their legs look like the inside of a pick 'n' mix bin? Definitely not me!

Continuing with the candy accessories theme, this licorice lollipop ring was actually the starting point / inspiration for this entire outfit. It's a piece from one of my favorite jewelry brands - Now or Never - and is a part of their Psychocandy collection. I absolutely adore it!

What's the natural thing to do when you wear a Psychocandy ring? Pose with your copy of Psychocandy, of course!
I'll be back with my official Halloween costume post soon, so stay tuned for that!

I have the moon

...on my socks! o.~ Sock it to Me - my all-time favorite sock brand, recently sent along some of their newest Fall styles for me to try out and I couldn't be more stoked! The selections I received are so spot-on with my style and feature everything I could ever dream of having emblazoned on a sock (I mean, googly-eyed donut patterns? YES PLEASE!) Here they are in all their candy-colored glory:

Designs from L-R: Just a PhaseThank Ewe!Dough-EyedWise Owl
As expected, each pair hits the A+ mark in both quality and design. They're all super soft, super comfy, & (most importantly) super cute!

The 'Just a Phase' design is my current fave - they're very space princess-y, which is a look that I'll be forever obsessed with / never tire of! I paired 'em up with some other ~out of this world~ pieces from my wardrobe including a nebula-esque foil skirt, metallic flats, and a lurex top that looks like something straight out of the UFO tv series. ☆彡

To further celebrate cute socks, I also accessorized with one of my new puppy sock pins from MILKBBI. ❤

❣ stella ~ fall /winter 2015 ❣

I'm dedicating today's post to one of my all-time favorite designers, Stella Rose Saint Clair! ❤ You may know her as one half of the brilliant design duo at Doll Eyes NY or from her former blog, Confessions of a Female Drag Queen. This past month she launched the first ever collection for her solo label STELLA - titled "Superstisia", it features some seriously swoon-worthy designs that are over-the-top cute with a perfectly punky twist. The entire collection is pretty much what dreams (or dream wardrobes?) are made of!

A few gems from the collection include mesh tees appliqued with lipstick patches (I'm getting major Siouxsie vibes from this one), oversize pvc confetti hair bows, and --my favorite so far-- a glittery faux fur kitty stole that doubles as a purse! I think that piece alone proves what an innovative & totally iconic designer Stella Rose is.

More fun details from the line include fang gang bows, graffiti-esque unlucky cats, glossy pvc fabrics, and gorgeous glitter tassel earrings.

You can browse the rest of the collection & even shop it (!) here. I've heard that more designs are soon to be added, so be sure to keep a look out! Meanwhile, if you're in need of a live-action Superstisia fix, Stella Rose also made a promo video in collaboration with Anthony&Alex to accompany the release of the new collection. How lucky are we?
