Hello.. My name is Shay and I’m addicted to Skulls.
Right, so I’m going to come clean.. In my late teens I was, along with the rest of my generation, a Myspace kid (There, I said it!). I had the backcombed hair with the tacky extensions, enough eyeliner around my eyes to put a raccoon to shame, H&M’s skull, heart and crossbones jumpers, skinny jeans and of course, the 56,7564 Myspace friends I had never met to validate my authenticity as a ‘Scenester’. While I’m glad that I came to my senses and left most of those things behind, the one thing I never lost was my love for Skulls. A few weeks ago, I was gifted this gorgeous Alexander McQueen scarf that I have wanted FOREVER and yesterday I decided to take it out for a little spin.
Alexander McQueen Skull Print Scarf c/o Abimarvel (Buy here!), Black ribbed vest, Miss Selfridge – £12.99 (Old), Acid washed ankle grazer jeans, Topshop Outlet (Old), Studded Leather Jacket, TK MAXX- £35 (Similar here!), Black Microfiber Wedges, Office (Sale) – £10, Tribal cuff & rings, purchased on travels. Skull ring, borrowed.
Yes you read right.. Those shoes cost me a staggering.. £10!! They were in the Office sale down from £70. The studded jacket was my favorite item in my wardrobe all of last season.. You can still find studded leather jackets in almost every high street store but ones that don’t look tacky are hard to come by. I fell in love with this one when I spotted it in my local TK Maxx and am frequently asked where I got it from.
This wasn’t an outfit for a special occasion or anything, just what I was wearing when I was hanging out with a friend.. So we decided to take some photo’s!
Until the next vanity post! Thanks for reading Londonistas!
