CHECKERED PAST

Blogger, Makeup, Model, Photo Shoot, Photography, Style, StylistOlivia NicoleComment

Styles change, but the past is never forgotten!

As far as fashion goes, trends come and go, but styles are always recycled from our past! Whether it be the revival of PUNK from the 80s and 90s or living and loving a bohemian lifestyle like in the 70s, we all see past trends returning time and time again, but always with a bit of a modern day twist.

My style has evolved so much over the years, and with age, came creativity and individuality. The older I get and the more experiences that I have had, has taught me to continue to push the envelope with my style and to not be afraid to take risks. I tend to do things a little more wacky than I did in let's say my teenage years and early twenties. I have always gained my style inspirations from the past, but have made sure to always make that style fit my personal aesthetic. Whether I play with bohemian styles or Americana styles, I always give that personal rock n' roll touch that has remained part of my "signature look"!

Lesson here, always be conscious of the history of fashion/style, while remembering to integrate your own personal touch with the styles from our past. Let's be real, we can all learn a little something from the past.

FOXY LADY

"You make me feel like...feel like sayin' FOXY...oh lady...FOXY, FOXY LADY." - Jimi Hendrix

Happy Birthday Jimi Hendrix! For your raw talent, genius artistry, and for your unique style choices that will forever be iconic! Jimi Hendrix, a legend who slays a guitar like none before. A legend who's music can cut into your soul like no other! A legend who's albums continue to spin, over and over again.

Black Friday is coming to a close and quite frankly, I'm just ready for Cyber Monday! Personally, I rarely ever participate in Black Friday deals unless there is a just a must-have electronic, for a steal! Why would I ever wake at the butt crack of dawn to arrive at a store hours before the doors open, only to be pushed around by multiple customers for the last pair of boots that you've all been eyeing for months? Exactly! Why would I ever do that when I know that Cyber Monday is only a couple days away!!! The day where you can shop till you literally empty your bank account, straight from your iPhone/computer, while you're still in your pjs and maybe even in bed, if you're anything like me! I'd say that's a better deal, any day of the week! What do you think?

Over the past few months, I have really taken to the thrill of wearing wigs to enhance my punk rock look! Having short hair makes it super easy to switch up your look for any occasion, just by experimenting with fun and colorful wigs like this Violet Bob from Dolls Kill! 

Whether I'm channeling my inner alter ego, going incognito, or just in need of a change for a day, wearing wigs only enhance my already colorful personality, causing me to be who I want to be, each and every day!

My advice: WIG OUT!!!

WIZARD WALKING

Blogger, Collaboration, Hair Color, Makeup, Photo Shoot, Photography, Style, StylistOlivia NicoleComment
"Evil power disappears. Demons worry when the wizard is near. He turns tears into joy. Everyone's happy when the wizard walks by." - Black Sabbath

Breathe it in like a long drag of a cigarette, the magical powers when the wizard walks by. A wizard in black is under attack, chasing shadows and working spells to be the baddest wizard of all.

Rock n' roll saves my soul and so does Black Sabbath on vinyl. Channeling my inner wizard of darkness in a recent series highlighting my punk rock edge in a classic black ensemble with photography by the photo wizard herself, Kelsey Fugere.
