An Iron Maiden

Just because it's Spring doesn't mean you have to go around looking like a walking Easter egg. One of my favorite looks is pairing really pretty floral/pastels/ruffles with hard-ass leather, chunky goth shoes and ripped up black metal shirts. I call this look Iron Maiden. A girl wearing a gauzy maiden-like gown with a leather jacket on top. Black nails and pink lipstick. Floral blouses with tight black pants and big black jewels. I'm actually on a 5 hour train ride right now that started at 5 am and a friggin gypsey/squatter totally stole my ticket and the cops took him away. Of course that would happen to me. But at least I had all the time in the world to make these collages. The first one was easy because I just pulled whatever appealed to me regardless of price. The second one however, I tried to do something that most of us normal working girls can actually afford. Everything on the second collage is under $100.
