PlatformObsessed

I have been severely lacking in inspiration lately for one reason: all I can think and dream about is platform shoes! I’m talking 90’s style Buffalo Shoes. Lace-up sneakers with sky-high platforms–I want them all! I remember in the 90’s I owned three pairs of Volatile sneakers that I wore everywhere. I severely regret the day I let those go.

But now I’ve got my sights set on the highly coveted Moonspoon Saloon x Buffalo Shoes platforms, and I’m not sure I can let these get away. I’ll need to up my game and sell a lot of phone cases on etsy for these babies (or just get a loan; they give loans for shoes, right?), because I feel like I’ll be restless until a pair of these is on my feet.

Style Icon: Alaina Beaton aka Porcelain Black


Rocker Alaina Beaton of Porcelain Black and formerly of Porcelain and the Tramps, has always been a step ahead of the trend and mostly on her own level entirely. This former scene queen has broken free from the shell and become a true badass style icon. Whether she’s wearing latex on the red carpet or an outfit covered in head-to-toe studs, this chick knows how to dress the part. Alaina is, quite literally, what rock n’ roll looks like.

InspiredBuy: F/W 2012 TrendWatch- Mesh Insert

The Fall/Winter 2012 runways were absolutely covered in pieces featuring mesh inserts. For this week’s InspiredBuy, I’ve highlighted two of my favorite alternatives, both available at ASOS. The first and more pricey choice, the Markus Lupfer piece, incorporated a mesh V neck, mesh designs and bold blue accent, all of which were big runway trends this season. The second, a body conscious mesh insert dress fits the trend and is a more affordable option.
