SoHo Haul - STUDS&SPIKES Extra

I totally wanted to make an individual post for this one. Steve Madden shoes have been huge faves of mine for years now and now as I wandered on Broadway on Thursday, their 50% off sale hit me in the face and I just had to buy these loafers.

It's burgundy, it's suede, it's studded, it's love. Excuse the photo & lighting quality though, it's just the iPad camera.










SoHo Haul - STUDS&SPIKES

I went to SoHo & Chinatown yesterday for a quick shopping session. I got me some lovely spiked & studded goodies there! My best friend would say sooo mean things to me right now, he mocks me every single time I bring up my obsession with them shiny little fellas, he says they're so last season...but hey I don't care, I don't love them cause they're trendy, I love them cause they ROCK!!

I posted about Necessary Clothing a few days ago, well now I finally got the chance to browse through their stores (all 5 of 'em) and I found the skirt featured in the post & the spiked snapback of my dreams.

The store Amsterdam is quite similar to Necessary...oh who am I kidding, they're all the same in the SoHo, all those stores. Same stock, same prices, same everything except their names. So in Amsterdam I scored spiked leggings, a grey sweater & a black clutch w/ a studded bracelet thingy to hold it by. I also flirted with the thought of buying penis lollipops (souvenir, duhh).

So Good which is an enormous jewelry store had a 50% off sale (well they either do it permanently or I'm just that lucky, I don't mind) and I just had to buy every possible version of the studded & spiked bracelets they had and some rings: really ghetto revolver ring, cross ring & weird ring I can't really explain.

At Ricky's (drugstore & sexshop at the same time, I blushed a little when I my innocent little eyes accidentially spied a dildo) I got 3 OPI polishes (will post about them tomorrow) and 2 color changing polishes.

Topshop is a dilemma. I mean it's not, I'd definitely hate it if it wasn't all hyped & trendy. But I jut can't see why they love it so much - nothing special style-wise, no significantly wide range of sizes, overpriced and some pieces of the sortiment are shockingly crappy. Despite all these, I still spend a hundred bucks there and I especially appreciate their 10% students' discount. I got 2 beanies (neon pink & black), an oversized lilac tee which is basically see-through & a black skirt which is either crazy high waisted or maxi, I just haven't figured it out yet.

I have one tiny problem with stores like Necessary's products - it seems as if they're made for absolutely flat chested girls. I mean I'm usually a size M, well their size M stuff fit me except in the chest area, and then I try the size L pieces on and they're HUGE bur they're still depressingly tight on my breasts, WHY? I mean I don't think American/New Yorker girls are tipically boobless...or are they? Or am I a mutant?

Okay so these were the stores I had time to visit, umm I only have my iPad with me right now so I'm only able to add the one picture below but as soon as I get back to my homeland (God knows when that will be, thanks to Nemo) I'll put up individual pics. x

IFBCon 2013 Short Recap

I had a great time at IFBCon 2013 in The Altman Building! Heard some very useful tips, met some amazing ladies, seen the most badass headphones ever, watched great makeup pros do pretty looks, got to know the brand Alex and Ani better, found out #MeanStinks and scored the cutest tee & hat at MailChimp's booth!

Thank you, IFB, for the great experience! Hope to see you again in September x
