ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb









Zac Posen for Target red leather jacket, American Apparel vneck, skirt I made, Target socks, vintage slip and shoes. I got these amazing 40's shoes from a vintage/designer resale shop, Girls from the Park. I had been wanting them for months but never had enough money at once. Finally, I sold some old stuff and ended up getting them with store credit, and I have $46 left! Hopefully I can get one of the great vintage coats or dresses they have. This jacket is perfect too, I had been wanting a leather motorcycle jacket for a while. I like that this one is red, it's such a nice change. It was my early birthday present!

I haven't had a record for the past couple posts because I went to LA for the weekend and decided I didn't want to risk bending one. In LA I hit the flea market and got tons of good stuff. I'm broke again but that's no surprise! It's too bad though, because all I want in my closet right now is this dress from Shop Dixi and this petticoat from American Apparel. I've mentioned this before, but I just love flowy, floaty things right now! I'll just have to wait for my birthday and be very happy with all my new things for now.

I saw The Runaways this weekend and it was absolutely fantastic, definitely one of my new favorite movies. Dakota Fanning's wardrobe was so great. She really is quite grown up! The title of this post was inspired by the song in the movie.

Your jacket is so bad-ass, love how you dressed it up and added that skirt and knee-highs for a more feminine look!!

Where in LA did you go for vintage shopping?
