Bad Girls Do It Well

Like Chelsea, I can never quite nail down exactly what my style is. But I DO know this: I’ve always been attracted to things that are a bit...naughty; if you will. Driving a little too fast. Drinking a little too much. Sneaking in...sneaking out. I looooove to test just how much I can push back up against “the rules” and what I can get away with. Just for shits and gigs...I mean I’m not gonna go all Dexter on your ass and see if I can get away with murder. Ew...FREAKY! I just like playing these little games with myself for my own entertainment, ya know? I ain’t hurtin’ no one....promise. My general tomfoolery and naughty tendencies have definitely influenced my sartorial choices over the years. (Can you find the pair of tits hiding in my ensemble?) Everything needs to have an edge; an air of mystery. Style is a way of communicating to others without saying a single word, and I like when people can convey an attitude of, “You may think you know...but you have no idea.” Like they’re hiding something...but what is it? This is why I have never thought of people who simply strive to look perfect all the time as terribly...stylish. There’s no message behind it. Perfection has nothing to say, no story to tell. I mean don’t get me wrong; perfect looks very...nice. But lemme tell you; nice has got nothing on naughty ;)

Vintage suede trimmed sweater. Vintage zombie tee. Vintage houndstooth skirt. H&M beanie. F21 necklace. Target shooties.

Until next time,

Brittany

    I love the grunge look and I admire those who can pull it off the way you do. Please style me, you hot bitch.

  9. AHHHH

    You are so fricken cool.

    Not only is this outfit SLAMMIN', but your writing was so enjoyable to read!
    Love your take on style, and the comment you made about making people second guess your persona. It is communication without words, which makes it so much more than material. It's an art form - a language, even.

    The green here is perfect. (not "perfect perfect" ,but..you know..perfect)

    HOw the heck do you find such a mazing vintage looks!?

    Officially obsessed w/ your blog. So hard to find someone with both something interesting to look at AND interesting to say - and I'm hooked.

    Cheers,

    Gabrielle

  10. totally agreed, im actually turned off my people that look "perfect"....maybe its because i dont have time to or maybe because its just boring to look at honestly! Once again....this outfit is fawesome.....its pretty much (i won't say perfect) a slightly off-kiltered perfect :)

  22. Ah yes, that's why I go by Grunge Queen: cos style, for me also, is so NOT about perfection. I love this outfit. It has a grungy 90s vibe, but with a twist. Xo
