UNIF Christian Death Metal

Behold a little glimpse into my life lately. But if you know me well, these photos show nothing new. Disheveled hair? Check. Beat up tee? Check. Lots of fur and leopard? Oh, lawd, who would I really be without them?

I was so excited to get my paws on this UNIF tee. It was either sold out everywhere, or else it was marked up to full retail price, which I always refuse to pay. After months of searching, I gave up and settled for the muscle tank version but was pleasantly surprised when I opened the package to find that sweet Bessie, the top had sleeves to it. A fluke? I say fate!

To anyone else, sleeves vs. no sleeves is not a huge deal. But when you live in Wisconsin in the seriously low temperatures, sleeves are a blessing. You can only layer thermals under your tanks for so long. Plus, I can no longer justify buying a million sleeveless tees, so it was time to get a little more sensible.

Don't forget to check out Daily Look! I just placed another order there. There's a parrot sweater in my future. Ah, yes, priorities.

Go Team Beth - A Varsity Jacket

Whoa, whoa, hold the phone, I've gone sporty. This is about as close to athleticism as I get, aside from wearing really heavy 6 inch heels. How cliche, I know.

Yeehaw, check out the back of this crop top. I threw on a lace racerback bra underneath for a let's play with negative space vibe.

Did anyone notice the varsity jacket has a B on it? B for Beth, of course.

I got a large in both the varsity jacket and the crop top, if anyone is thinking about getting 'em. The varsity jacket definitely fits more like a medium! And the crop top is basically the softest thing ever. I got a bigger size since I didn't want to show off too much skin.

If anyone is ever interested in an item I'm wearing and wants to know what size I got for comparison purposes, please feel free to email me! I'm about 5'7", so I'd love to help out. Sizing is one of the trickiest things about online shopping. I randomly email bloggers all of the time, and it's a really rad way to make new friends, too.

And whoa, this is one my mom's first times using a DSLR camera, and she did an amazing job. Go Mama!

Loop Knit Sweater Weather

I've been scouring the world for the perfect shaggy sweater. It's one of those pieces that you either love or hate, but if you're into texture, into amazingly obnoxious pieces of clothing or into something a little offbeat, my friends, you need to get shagged.

Yeah, I've really been into extreme faces lately.

Seriously, that texture is amazing. It's like a dash of granny style mixed in with 70's inspiration and man, I don't know. But let's just say this is better than the time I bought that cotton candy pink shag vest and everyone I encountered while wearing it awkwardly pet my back like some sad little, pastel creature.

I'm really all about pairing this knit with ripped up shirts and graphic tees. Contrast and texture. Oh lawd, cue a fashion freakout.

Reboot Moto Jacket

I cannot believe how amazing this pastel moto jacket is. It basically fits like a dream (aka true to size) and is lightweight and super soft. Yum. Did I mention it's a gazillion percent off right now?

Nothing like bubble tea as an accessory. Strawberry banana. Ow ow.

And yes, my hair is lighter and so much closer to Daul Kim blonde goodness.

Because for every swear word tee, you need a pink bear.
