† OMENS AND AMENS †

Monday night I decked myself out in the latest and greatest additions to my wardrobe- a floor-sweeping black dress, super massive circle sunglasses, and cross & skull necklaces by AMEN. All elements of my outfit coalesced to form a look somewhat reminiscent of 'Gaga goes Givenchy goth'. It's been raining sporadically here in Vegas for the past few days, so a head-to-toe black get-up was perfectly fitting. Weather often has the most profound influence on wardrobe choices. Thank you, thunder, for inspiring me in particular!












FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Knitted hat- Secondhand
Sunglasses- The Cobrashop, www.shop.thecobrasnake.com
Dress- Black Label, AKIRA, www.shopakira.com
Necklaces- AMEN, www.thisistransition.com
Bracelets- Jessica Simpson, Nine West
Clogs- Candies

This black dress from AKIRA proves that 'big black dress' may reign victorious over LBD. I'd rather wear a floor-length maxi to a fancy dinner than a cropped microdress! The circular slits at the side make up for any ounce of sexy that the draping bottom-half takes away. I've never felt more confident about my silhouette and emphatically recommend this style to anyone looking for a ground-grazing gown!

As for my jewelry- some of it's vintage, but all the gaudy goth pieces are from an incredible new brand known as "AMEN" sold by This Is Transition. I turned this bracelet into a choker necklace by knotting a piece of white string to each clasp and tying it behind my neck! Seemed like a practical solution to a bracelet slightly too large for my little wrists. No matter the manner in which the jewelry is worn, its perfectly industrial aesthetic is still evident.

There are plenty of other crosses, skulls, rocks, and eiffel towers to go around on the site! Check it out- www.thisistransition.com

P.S. I've been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES STYLE SECTION!!!!!! I can hardly contain my excitement!! The article details a visit I took to NYC in March, where I dined with a crew of authors, poets, and journalists at The Lodge in Brooklyn. The evolution of my style throughout high school in suburban Las Vegas is even humorously recounted... enjoy!! http://nyti.ms/qeHkkR
