shiny shiny

when i first moved to philly in october i mentioned on the blog that my pvc pants might be too fashion forward for this city. a couple of philly locals told me to wear them regardless, so on sunday that's what i did. i definitely got a few curious stares, but i had my ipod on quite high so if there were any rude comments i didn't hear them :-)


this drkshdw furry hoodie is currently my favorite piece of outerwear (despite the fact that my sister thinks i look like the grim reaper.) it's so warm that i can get away with wearing just a t-shirt underneath. it was the only coat i brought home with me to new york this past thanksgiving weekend - it doubled as a blanket on the train ride home.

Outfit Details


  1. grim reaper is good! I love this whole outfit.

  2. Are the leggings pretty long/have a lot of material bunching at the bottom?

  3. this outfit is amazing! i have latex leggings and have been trying to wear them in a fashion context without looking like i just strolled out of paddles.

  4. That outfit is HOT. I'm sure you are way too fashion forward for everyone, but that's a good thing!

  5. I live in Philly and I totally get what your saying! these ppl here are not fashion forward, they love to dress lik oldnavy displays with faux leather jackets.

    I LOVE YOUR STYLE! && the outfit is flawless! i love the pants!!!

  6. any chance you wanna sell the pants?
