The Girl at the Rock Show

Girl at the Rock Show

I'm heading to a New Years Eve Eve concert to shoot some photos, which should be a ton of fun. I'll be seeing Plow United, who are awesome, as well as some other great acts. I try not to dress up too much for these shows, because in a punk rock crowd you're likely to get jostled and it's good to be comfortable. My usual go-to is a pair of good jeans and a t-shirt with some badass boots. I keep the accessories to a minimum, but it's December so a scarf and gloves are essential.

Holiday Party

Holiday Party

If you're invited to any events this holiday season, you might be worried about what to wear. You can't go wrong with a cute dress and chunky heels, especially if there's some sparkle in there somewhere. The white blazer is fresh, and helps go from day to evening if you need to get to a party straight from work. The red shoes throw in a pop of festive color.

Pretty in Punk

Pretty in Punk

In case you didn't notice earlier, I love combining punk sensibilities with pretty and stylish things. This outfit does exactly that, nodding to my punk roots with the spikes and safety pins and plaid, while staying cute and incorporating nice high boots and a quilted backpack.

I Invented the Piano Key Necktie! I Invented It!

I invented the piano key necktie

I'm a little bit obsessed with this dress. It's so simple up top, but then BAM, the super cool piano print skirt pulls in all your attention. I love anything with a musical reference, even though I no longer play the piano.

With something like this, I'd keep the rest of the outfit simple. Plain jacket and bag, and just a pop of color for the shoes. Some opaque black tights would make this great for winter.

Sometimes I Make Things: Non-Felted Slippers

It's winter! So I need something warm for my feet. These non-felted slippers in oatmeal and charcoal wool are perfect. They only took a day or so to make, too, which was great. I love a quick knit.

Time to Present

Time to Present

It's time for my final presentation in one of my classes. Augh! Where did the semester go?

I love to wear a cute basic dress with tights and a jacket whenever I'm doing something professional. I think it looks polished while still being cute and fashionable. The collar on this dress is a nice-looking feature, and my trusty buffalo-plaid backpack manages to look nice while still being functional. It's been a great piece all semester, big enough to get my laptop and a few books inside without being clunky or unwieldy.
