Bad Company

Filed under: Designer Tribute,Mix and Match,Review — Candy Lemmon @ 11:31 am

You know the girl, the one still wearing last night’s makeup as she stumbles off the tour bus to have a smoke. You’d hate her if you weren’t afraid she’d kick your ass and steal your boyfriend. Me, I just want to get in her panties.

I’m a bad girl wannabe, I never grew out of it – so when Bakersfield Kidd dropped this wicked tattoo set on me, I had the perfect excuse to indulge in it. The Dia de Los Muertos-inspired set is packed with ink, made of over 50 separate old-school images and truly rocks my socks. It’s unisex and would work great for any rocker boy out there, but it’s not for weaklings – with ink on both sides of the kneecaps this baby requires some seriously high pain tolerance. My glitter-hawk by Digit Darkes is so very cool that I have a hard time shopping when I wear it, it’s hard to look at anything else! For the clothes I wanted to keep it tough and sexy to show off the tattoo work, and be as close to indecent as publicly possible. A prim Bare Rose vest and these damaged socks from Etchd are favorites I’m wearing again, and these boots are my default for footwear with attitude. These pasties by Indie Rainbow and some playful animal-print panties are an homage to the gothy girls I’ve known, though they wouldn’t be caught dead with a diamond-encrusted lip ring. This vertical bridge is my favorite piercing, it feels like a kind of punk bindi to me.

In this closeup you get a better look at my favorite feature, an included prim tattoo (yes PRIM) for your neck. I had never encountered that option before, and I think it’s a great one. Plus, it’s a lovely Mexican skull design – I’ve been wearing it alone a lot. Why don’t you crack open a beer and join me?

  8. Haha! I can’t resist slipping a little Jessica Rabbit in there sometimes, she’s my idol.

    PS – As far as creative style-y-ness goes, I could say the same about you…
