Glam Meets Rock

Just as I was getting excited about fall weather, LA hit us with another heat wave last week. I initially paired this Sequin top with black leather pants, but ran back in the house to change into shorts after I realized how hot it was.  I thought that these red shorts were a great substitute to the  leather pants, edging up the glamorous sequins.

I’m constantly influenced by history, and how women adorned themselves back in the days. I find myself mostly influenced by  the feminine 1950s fashion,  think small waistlines and a full skirt (like this outfit HERE & HERE ) , but i’m always sprinkling in  rocker/punk accents whenever I can.   Whether it be a pair of killer booties or a strong leather jacket, it’s very rare to see me without one of these two. I love pairing soft with hard, feminine with masculine, and in this case glamorous with a little rebellion. I like to think most people, including myself, have multiple personalities- independent yet entirely vulnerable (at the right moment), loving yet stern, and free spirited yet extremely focused. I think it’s important that we have our outfits reflect both sides of who we are- in my case glam meets rock.


P.S We found out that majority of our reader are internationally based, and we will do our best in having all of the looks shoppable globally. I would love to know where you guys are from , please let me know in the comment section below!  Thanks Loves.

I love your blog, it’s fun to read and all the pictures are fabulous. I’m all the way from all little island called Iceland, I’s rains alot here and we basically don’t have a real summer where it is a good idea to buy beach wear or all those great looking summer wear the stores from the US have. I send you my love all the way from Iceland <3

The golden light shine on the sequin complement your red leather shorts really well! By the way, I am from Hong Kong, but now moved to America

Kai Choi ( September 30, 2013 at 8:57 AM )

You nailed glam meets rock! And I agree with your well written description of the ying and the yang. Feminine/masculine, soft/hard…etc… Believer!!!

Please visit my blog for another ying/yang outfit where lingerie inspired dress meets casual tough jacket.

thanks! SF BLOGGER

I do love mixing soft with rough myself. I’ll wear a cutsy shirt with a rough jean or an artistic tee with studded shorts!

And I’m from the US myself ;)


Lorien ( September 30, 2013 at 1:12 AM )

I envy you that you can still wear shorts!!! You look great!

Nice sequin top and you’re so beautiful.

Tra Mi ( September 30, 2013 at 12:22 AM )

Great outfit.
Unfortunately in my country, Indonesia, it’ll be too sweaty to wear leather pants/shorts.

Liana ( September 30, 2013 at 12:00 AM )

The top is just one of a kind. Love the glamorous material and great mix with the red shorts, your hair is really giving this the rock touch ;)) xoxo
