I SO DIG TODAY'S LOOK
OMGyouguise yessss, a very clever kitty collar meets ultra babelicious hot pink PVC mini skirt!
Could you obsess any harder? I can't.
Truthfully, on the long list of things I can't even--or, rather won't even--Hot Pink is in the top 5. But somehow it's managed to warm itself up to me in the form of a naughty-kitten PVC mini skirt.
I hate hot pink. Really. Always have. Which is why you'll only ever catch me in pale/pastel shades of pink 99.9% of the time. Why do I hate it? Not sure. Maybe because it resembles PeptoBismol which I threw up one time when I had stomach flu. Or maybe because it's the colour of Patrick Star & he's stupid. Or maybe it's because it's just so tacky and when I see it I fear some sort of Zebra pattern is following close behind. Whatever. Bottom line is, I hate hot pink. But, in this case, what can I say? Even I can appreciate when something is truly fabulous; and this form-fitting, body con-esque mini from American Apparel is Just That. Fabulous.
I'm so #sorrynotsorry that the majority of my garments come from American Apparel.
Their clothing deserves awards. Talking Grammys. Hands down, AA makes some of the most powerful pieces in fashion today. Bringing back 70s 80s and 90s flare with a modern appeal, American Apparel never ceases to produce top shelf apparel all day every day.
This skirt is just the beginning of a long line of totally stellar skirts AA has to offer.
It's called the Vinyl Mini Skirt and it's seriously handcrafted by angels. I got this skirt for ComicCon and I ordered it online instead of buying it in the store because they weren't selling it in store anymore. I ordered a size small--despite knowing that I'm definitely an xsmall--because I wasn't sure if it would be too tight, given the Vinyl material has very little stretch. However, when I got it it was too big and had more stretch than I'd anticipated. It was really rather frustrating but ComicCon was coming up in a few days and I couldn't risk sending the skirt back and not re-recieving it before the day of the big event. I was going as Barbie and my vinyl skirt was pretty much the only part of the getup that could help people guess who I was, aside from my Mirror iPhone case from Moschino.
Anyway, after ComicCon I felt bad about trying to send a skirt back that I'd already worn all day so I just kept it. I wish I had've bought it in black a few months ago, but my friend talked me out of it when I was on the fence about it. Now AA doesn't even have it for sale anymore. Sometimes I HML. Lol. Anyway…
I'm not sure what it is about the skirt that get's me going, but it just excites me. Yknow, after ComicCon I'd kind of tossed this beauty to the side, seemingly forever frustrated with it's almost-perfect fit. But when I got this top, I realized that my skirt could be revived, and it was true after all.
It's not just the top though, this skirt is really something to consider adding to your closet. The inside is a super soft suede-like cotton and the outside is a liquid-wet vinyl material that's so crisp you could clean it with Windex. I regret not buying it in every colour except gumdrop--because I hate green more than I hate Hot Pink. So yea, the skirt is definitely magic, but let's move on to something even better…
This top, sometimesladies & notalwayssogentlemen, which I know you think is just soo salty I bought from Miss Patina; but size Small (which is what I ordered) is currently out of stock. Off the bat, I didn't like that my stupid cat-collar-guy can't reach his feet so he just lies around my neck like a dead fur. I decided I can just sew on velcro or a plastic snap or even a metal closure and the problem will be solved but still, when you pay $60+ for a top, you kind of hope your cat will obey.
All in all though, the top creates a lot of conversation, and, if the person is interesting of course, I love conversation! I think that a chocolate female strolling down the streets in a Strawberry Pink vinyl mini skirt is enough of a convo starter but the cat collar definitely helps. It's definitely one of my newest favourite items in my closet. I like animal pieces a lot, they're so cute ! (◠‿◠✿)
I have this Rilakkuma skater dress that I really want to show you guys but waiting on the right top…
I also like that this top is black and white. Means I can mix and match it with a ton of different bottoms like skirts, shorts, pants and denim. It's going to be an adventure discovering all the ways I can wear this new blouse, and it's an adventure I'm going to enjoy!

Lastly I added some tiny daisies to my nails, partly to keep a fresh Spring vibe going but mostly to get rid of the Basic Red polish I was previously sporting.
The cheap red polish dyed my nails a hint of pink which unexpectedly yet totally appropriately matched my ensemble so I then took a bottle of White Nail Art Polish (the one with the skinny brush applicator) and I painted little 7-petal daisies everywhere. I put one or two on some fingers and other fingers I put clusters of daisies. *shivers at the word c l u s t e r s. Ew* Anyway after that I just put a dot of yellow polish in the center of the white blobs and voila ! Daisy French Tip is born.
& THERE U HAVE IT,
A totally adorable and pleasantly familiar flight-attendant-on-acid style outfit. Wear it to the mall or an event. Wear it to work if your boss has a single creative bone in his/her body and doesn't make artistic people hide their true colours. Or wear it to the grocery store or Pet store and be like "This is Monty my cat say Hi!" while petting your collar. Whatever you chose to do, do it in a Vinyl mini skirt because everyone should own something Vinyl at least once in life. & also consider doing what you do in a cat-collar blouse! Because a dog collar blouse is just weird!
HAVE A BLESSED DAY EVERYONE !! I love you, may u prosper in class/@work-with your family/friends and whatever else you do & remember guys,
