I'm a Rocker, I'm a Roller

You may recall that I'm an old time metal chick from back in the day. I still like to indulge myself in rock and roll accessories now that I'm in my 40s.
Please disregard the hair since I just got back from a 2 hour dragon boat practice and Madame Splashy-Pants sat behind me and thoroughly soaked me, AND I was wearing a hat, so I have hideous hat head now that the salt water has dried.

This is a strictly summer dress, since it's cotton and not lined - maybe when I find a crinoline I'll put it into rotation for other seasons, but for now, it's summer. I love the 50s vibe of it, but thought I'd contrast that this time with both colour and detail in the accessories.

The stuff:
Once I noticed that this awesome tattoo belt went with the turquoise in the dress, the rest was easy. My wicked cool Fluevogs in that great cherry colour, and my leather stud cuff (with a nod to Kasmira who's been sporting hers lately, and is often an inspiration), and then the fun bug scarf (check out the gold bugs!) to soften it up a bit. I also feel very Audi in this...hmmm, I need to get a tattoo!

Points if you know what song the title of this post is from; bonus points if you also name the band (and no, it's not Chuck Berry or Eric Carmen - who?).

Dress (Le Chateau), belt (consignment), shoes (Fluevogs, gift from L), cuff (don't remember), scarf (Smoking Lily, gift from Janet for my wedding shower), silver hoop earrings.


  1. very pretty! love that tattoo belt and the shoes. superb! i think i spy a dragonfly on your scarf!

  2. Great shoes and I'm laughing at "Splashy-Pants."

  3. ADORE that cuff. Now, what's your first tatt gonna be?

  4. I'm not a Rocker or a Roller, but I love studs! Don't you like how they add some edge to a feminine ensemble?

  5. Look at those guns!

    I'm also loving the cuff.

  6. That belt is PERFECT!~

    And what Sal said. First tattoo?

  7. Nope, sorry, Beth. Since you are the only one who guessed, you get points anyway. It's AC/DC (Bonn Scott era). Thanks!

    Eednic, thanks - yes, you do spy a dragonfly!

    Wendy, thanks - I like to give people names like that.

    Sal, it will be a salamander - I'll explain it when I get it. I've known what I wanted for years, but just never got around to it.

    Kasmira, you could have fooled me! Yes, love the rockin' stuff to edgy it up.

    Tina, thanks - I have a weak upper body, so I'm excited to be building some pipes.

    WWWYG - thanks! See above, a salamander. And my dad's signature - I'll explain when I get them, which I hope will be before the end of '09.

  8. That color looks amazing on you! So bright and pretty.

    Your package is still sitting on my counter...really will mail it soon. :)

  9. Thanks so much, Erica! Gosh, no worries about "the package". :)

  10. That belt is so perfect. I think if I had that belt I'd wear it most everyday!

    Tattoo's are fun. Are you really going to get one? I have two and so would get more!

  11. Thanks, Alison!

    I have always wanted a tattoo and never got around to it. Yes, I'm really going to get one - I got L a gift certificate for one for his birthday, so I'm next!
