Wristful of cuffs

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 rock 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.

Picture from Jak&Jill

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 local indie club. Perhaps I did look a bit rough and tough and dangerous with my new jewellery, pleather pants and heavy makeup. In a good way, of course.








Blazer: MTWTFSS
Wrinkled tee: MTWTFSS (new from Stockholm!!)
Pleather pants: H&M
Shoes: Wedins
Bag: Second hand
Cuffs: Leather Heaven
Rings: Kalevala Koru & Silver Rabbits via eBay

Wow, they look great. I went through a proper goth thing when I was 14/15 (some say I never really got over it!) and used to wear all that kind of stuff, I must dig them out! They look great on you.

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. :)

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.

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

your shoes are actually amazing, and I'm loving your blog.

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! :)

Love 'em. I've also been obsessed with big leather cuffs lately.
PS. I'm obsessed with your amour ring.

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. :)
