Wristful of cuffs

It seems that I’m not the only one who has been obsessing about getting a pile of rough wrist candy after seeing images of the ever-so-stylish Elle Style Editor Kate Lanphear rocking tons of iron around her wrists. Her simple, androgyne aestethics with a touch of roughness and attitude really make my heart skip a beat, and I could easily name her as one of the most influential style icons of today. I guess the similtude of our styles is what makes me attracted to her, as I find the same aesthethics being the corner stones of my personal style.

With Kate’s chunky jewellery in my mind, I went to a store called Leather Heaven which I knew would carry all things made of leather and metal, and came back with a pyramid stud cuff and spiked “rat” cuff in my shopping bag (ps. now I’m planning on ordering this baby). Last night they served as my faithful wrists of fury when I needed some space on the dance floor of the fully packed club. Weapons of destruction or a fashion statement? You decide.

  1. Hello there, I just came across your blog and found it very interesting.Please come and visit mine too. It’s a fashion blog with outfits and blurbs, inspired by Portobello Road, London.See you soon.PS: I Love your long leather Bronx boots!!!!!!

  2. Eri: Thanks! I checked out your blog and it looks promising! I love London street style!Katja: Kiitti kovasti! Tuo ryppypaita + bleiseri kombo toimii aina kun ei keksi mitään päällepantavaa. Kuitenkin se näyttää aina vaan yhtä hyvältä.Juliet: Thanks, I had to get that same wrinkled tee in brown, white and black.. It just works so well! :)Christina Sanders: Thanks! I used to have some gothic stuff as well in the 90’s, better dig them out too. :)Winda: Kiitti. Tukka oli nutturalla, en ole vielä uskaltautunut leikkaamaan, vaikka sitä on täällä ehdotettu. Pitkästä saa kuitenkin niin paljon enemmän ja tuolla löysällä nutturalla saa myös hieman lyhennettyä hiuksia, kerroksittainen leikkaus takaa sen. 🙂

  3. Don’t you dare to cut your hair!!! It’s PERFECT like it is now. (I think I have said this once or twice before.. 😉 )

  4. Just tripped in here and I think you have a nice style and your shoes remind me that mine (have the same) are broken.. so sad I really loved them.

  5. I love your cuffs – especially the cone studs one – it does indeed look very dangerous in a great way! I love your makeup too =]

  6. JEYQ: Thanks, the ring is one of my favorites at the moment too. :)NinaV: Don’t worry, I don’t think I could. 🙂 It’s much more versatile like this. Thanks for the long hair support! Hehe.Ida: Thanks! Sorry to hear about your shoes. They were dirt cheap (I got mine for like 15 euros on discount), so you have to be really careful with them. They are lovely though! :)She’s Dressing Up: Thanks! The studs definitely add certain roughness and danger to the look so I had to make the makeup to match it. ;)TheMinx: Thank you very much! 🙂

  7. ihanaa! kuva sinusta suoraan edestä! näytät oikein hyvältä, ja tuo kuvakulma sopii sinulle oikein hyvin. = )

  8. Moikkamoi: Välttelen yleensä tuota kuvakulmaa, mutta halusin lähikuvan meikistä. Kiitos kovasti, ehkä jatkossakin uskaltaudun ottamaan kuvia suoraan. ;)Georgia: Thanks and me too! Oh, the armor ring is pure perfection, if you want to get the same one, I have a link in my “The next big ring” post. 🙂

  9. fun and great outfit. tough and rock but clean at the same. the matching combinations keep it just simple and perfect.i love your hair and red lips.
