Alice in Chains

3.1 Phillip Lim skirt in Nov 2009 Teen Vogue
Vintage Micheline top, Omega belt (worn backward) & amethyst bracelet. 3.1 Phillip Lim skirt. Chanel clogs.
My prizefighter belt is emblematic of the best of 1980s' excess - I wore it backward to display its heavy metal charm: a dungeon padlock buckle (reminiscent of Maid Marian's chastity belt in the movie Robin Hood: Men in Tights) & a trio of chains. The Tough Love belt segways into another lacy outfit: a sheer crochet top & a crocheted lace skirt (Teen Vogue borrowed a page from Phillip Lim's resort 2010 lookbook by styling this skirt similarly on model Chanel Iman). Glass shards in the shape of a flower form my vintage bracelet (its underside is cunningly crafted with hand-twisted wire); luckily I discovered it for pennies at an estate sale - a contemporary piece of the same caliber would cost much more.
