My Darker Side

Hey lovelies,

How has your week been so far? ♥

Mine has been wonderful, except that I'm really hoping for the weather to change to warmer already. :D Minor details. My fiance was lovely enough to promise me some pampering in the spa the coming weekend, am I a lucky girl or what? (And, I get to test drive my new neon bikini which I was showing you here.)

I was telling you on the previous post I'd show you a way to style a band t-shirt, and that's exactly what we'll be seeing here today. The shirt is something I ordered pretty recently, wanting to support the one band I won't shut up about, Fireal. The shirt is girlie fit, and is actually way cooler than the promo picture showed. I love it, and have thought of other ways of styling it as well, but that'll be something to show you later on.

Today, I just thought of combining classic girly look with this dark side rocker edge, trying to make it work for me. The light outside wasn't perfect for shooting, actually quite the opposite, but my man did a lovely job anyways.

See what we came up with:

T-shirt (girlie fit): Official Fireal merchandise (you can get yours here)
Jeans: Mango
Jacket: Mango
Shoes: SpiritStore
Ear cuff: Nelly.com
Bangle: Nelly.com

I was feeling this look today, and it certainly got straight to my top 10 of outfits. I thought the big, girly hair and winged eye makeup would balance out the look from being too hardcore.

So, what do you guys think, did I do any good?

Also, the ones who have been reading for a longer time now know that I have this, well, obsession, of needing to have the nails matching the outfit. Can you guess the two colours I used this time around? :D

That's right, red and black all the way. ;) I'm sorry for the nails looking a bit untidy, they have suffered from work at this point... But the smudges between red and black are partially meant to be. :D (The shades used are Mavala nr. 2, Madrid, and IsaDora 191, Gothic Black. And yes, if you have an unsteady hand like me, you should use some tape to help you. How to? See this post.)

If there still is some of you wondering: "What's this Fireal the crazy person keeps talking about?", please check their website: http://www.thefireal.com/en/. The guys there are doing such an amazing job, and would love all the support we can give (meaning, if you like their music, please be kind enough to share!).

Also, the band has just released this amazing song called "Eve". You can (meaning: should ;)) listen to it here: http://thefireal.com/eve.html.

So yes, once again I managed to make the whole post about Fireal. Oh, well, we all love music, so why not get inspired by it, also in clothing and all? 

Do you get inspired by bands/artists when thinking of clothing and style? And moreover, which band or artist is the recent outfit inspiration for you? Dare to share! ;)

Now I guess it's time for me to go check out some (surprise!) school work, and then, of course, read your amazing posts. But do have a lovely week, everyone of you!

Blog ya later!

xoxo

Johanna

  23. Hei taas ihanaiseni, pitkästä aikaa.

    Tykkäilen hurjasti noista punaisista farkuista. Oon himoinnut sellaisia jo jonkun aikaa, mutta taidan jättää ne vähän pienikokoisemmille tytöille :D

    Mun uusi lempiartisti on neitonen nimeltä Birdy. Käy kurkkaamassa youtubesta musiikkivideo nimeltä Skinny Love. Se vasta on inspiroiva ^_^

    Ihanaa viikonloppua murunen,
