Tell Me About It.... Stud



That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighbourhood
I'm your ch ch ch ch ch cherry bomb 
 I don't give a damn 'bout my bad reputation 
 Hair tie - Krista
Sunglasses - Charity shop
 earrings - retail somewhere
Necklaces - Heart shaped - made by Krista, Fimo Tiger - Charity shop, Silver Sun - Hippy stall in 1993
Shirt - Jumble sale
Polka dot top  - £3.50 Sainsburys
Shorts - £2 Primark
Gloves - Tiger Lily in Oxford
Tights - White Stuff
Shoes - Office

I've been stud happy this last week, I ordered a load from ebay  - they're extremely cheap and added the pink ones to the denim shirt and a load of gold ones to this...



This waistcoat started life as a typical 80s jacket. It didn't really fit me so I tried unsuccessfully to flog it on ebay (three times!) I was inspired by a picture in Vogue (first fash mag bought in 8 years last week) to chop it up and add the studs and iron on patch. 

I mentioned the decline of inspiring Vogue covers here, but lo and behold they went all edgy again...
 
I was extremely lucky to get a parcel from the delicious pixie of Portland Krista
 This beautiful 70s card which she'd made into a work of art

That lovely necklace again and alllll the marshmallows, I LOVE marshmallows, these have been eaten. 

and this amazing Kyary style hair band... modelled by Ruby
She also sent me a card with a beautiful note, what a wonderful lady. 

I also got a lovely parcel from Croydon Cutie Lakota
A very sweet Dutch postcard, gorgeous nail varnishes, a wonderfully creepy ring and a tackilicious unicorn brooch. Thanks love!

What lovely ladies. I've been spoilt!

This week in the charity shops I bought:

Sunnies - as above
yellow leather satchel - £1
more padded hangers to add to my collection  - 49p each
2 pairs of stockings - 25p each
1950s fake fur stole  - £5


Rebel Girl You Are The Queen Of My World



(1985 cushion from charity shop 12 years ago)

Fuckin' hipsters and Madonna (when she was cool) should be quaking in their boots 'cos you look incredible!
That jacket is a work of genius and your legs are sexilicious in those shorts!
Krista and Lakota have done you proud! I knew those kitsch bunnies wouldn't last long and ruby looks adorable in her bow! Great chazza finds, too!
You rock, me babbie! xxxxxx

One of the best, and worst, lines in that movie! You look like a funked out badass Pink Lady yourself! Love the pink shorts and sunnies, and that pillow is a hoot. Xoxo

freckleface said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I don't know who's cuter, you desperately seeking naughty or your doglet modelling that hairband. Kawaiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!! Once you pass your test I can see you both in a massive Amrican car, cruising the mean streets of High Wycombe. 'What you lookin' at?'

Love that little red riding hood undercover postcard 'from somewhere in Holland'. Yeah, don't go giving anything away now. xxx

Rose&Bird said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Great goodies, you wonderful badass! I think someone at school had one of those rings, but hers was blue. Love the jacket makeover, I've always been a tad scared of 80s stuff, but I really like what you've done with it x

pastcaring said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Ooh, Miss S., you have gone baaaad! I love this look on you, Clare, you have the pouty snarl of a young Elvis (which is high praise, in case you were wondering.) You look fab in shorts, and I can't believe you have managed to transform that 80s jacket into something cool! Clever girl.
The Portland Pixie and Croydon Cutie have sent you some fabulous gifts, although I don't think you are going to get that fuck off glittery bow back off Ruby, she was made to be a headband model.
I can't resist a padded coat hanger either, and that fur stole is so you, it's brilliant.
Got me singing now... Better shape up...Xxxxx

Ivy Black said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You are so naughty and bad and you look bleeding fab. Love all your pressies and Ruby in the hair band deserved to be painted. I'll leave that with you then!
Have a big kiss.

I love that song!!!! The jacket is fantastic-- I don't want to sound all copycat, but I literally have a similar plan to patch and stud a blazer that I ripped the sleeves off of. All your little presents are so fun and you look amazing!!!
Becky :)

Kezzie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Whoa, hot girl!!! Love the star studs!!!!!! Can you do this to my clothes too!!x

Miss Magpie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Fab-u-larse, love what you did with the leather jacket and I especially love the polka dot top. Somewhere in Holland that will be me this weekend....hope I don't get lost.

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh I love this look! Definitely liking studs and what you've done with the jacket and denim. And heart sunnies are fab, I have some too but had to resort to ebay for mine. You are too gorgeous - and back to blonde I see.

Here's to all of us fabulous rebel girls!!!!! I don't know why but I am loving this post so much right now~ I think it's that middle finger and this fucking rad song!!!!! Clare I've said it before and I'll say it again you are a pretty special young thang, rarely is someone so expressive and confident at your age, keep it up hottie! I adore what you did to the jacket!!! I'm happy my parcel put a smile on your face because the picture Ruby rocking the bow will have me smiling the rest of the day! And here I thought you were just so posh :)
LOVEYOU!!!!!
XXXXOOO

Sara said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Not only are you Queen of the Neighborhood, you are Queen of Everything. Here's to our bosoms taking over the world! I adore everything about this post; from studs to sunnies..AHHH! I am soon taking on a project where I remove the sleeves from something, therefore making it fantastic. XO

Forest City Fashionista said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You and Ruby need to go out ridin' in a cool convertible with your fecktastic hair bows! Excellent idea to remove the sleeves and add the studs and patch on the jacket. Hurrah for marshmallow peeps, pretty cards and nail varnish!

Helga! said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!
Fark YES, bad girl, I wanna hang in YOUR gang! Frigging A!
Most excellent re-decoration of that jacket. Ruby (I couldn't remember her name this morning!) is a dream (and was in my dream)with that enormous fuck off bow!!! Fab shade of green that!
It's all gravy,baby.And YOU are the Queen Fox!
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Melanie said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Step away from Miss Simmonds with the scissors or you'll be remade into something fabulous - speaking of that incredible leather jacket which you hacked into brilliance with a queen and studs to boot. You are baaad. At a quick glance I thought you were Desiree, the hair bow, the sunnies, the blings, everything. Your gifts are incredible. Of course! - everyone loves you. Love that ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.

thorne garnet said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Well, hello there Miss 1983! You look freaking awesome!Love the Red Riding Hood card...."somewhere in Holland" fucking priceless.

Misfits Vintage said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Le SPECTACULAR!!! Did you wear this fab outfit to your driving lesson? I hope so!

The sunnies are my fave. I love the studly gooies and the shorts and all of the fab necklaces. And ooh la la don't we LOVE getting fab parcels from our bodacious blogger babes? We are so lucky. The rainbow ric rac card is absolutely gorgeous.

Love a duck!

You are on Ffffire! Love everything about your outfit and how you've included your new shiny shoes. I want to go everywhere with you!

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I wanna get a package full of wonderful goodies! You there! Share your goodies with me!

Camelia Crinoline said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You look fantastic. I love your refashioned waistcoat. You can never have too many padded coathangers.

CityScape Skybaby said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

So many gorgeous things here Clare, I love this look on you, it really seems to suit your attitude. Everytime I see you you seem to be up to something new, I love your enthusiasm for everything. Great prezzies too, Krista's heart necklace and pretty picture are so cute, as is Ruby in her glitter hairband, it's weird how much it suits her! Love the gifts from Lakota too, I have both those nail varnishes, the local chemist only sells Rimmel so I'm tempted every time I go in. You had loads of great finds too, I'm so jealous of your padded hanger collection, I never find any here. Always look forward to seeing what you're up to next Clare, I imagine your mind being a whirl of ideas all the time. xx

CityScape Skybaby said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oops, meant to add, I finally got to watching Grey Gardens and loved it so much, it's been on my mind ever since so thank you for introducing me to it, hate to think I might have gone through life without knowing about Big Edie and Little Edie. xx

Louise Mc said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love it, reminds me of Madonna in desperately seeking Susan... I love that film. I didn't realise you could put an iron on patch on leather. Xx

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You are incredibly tough! I also looked att the Vogue covers - fantastic. And som more praise. Your dog!So photogenuique.

menopauselsupermodel said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

OOOO-STUDS!!! you are looking quite FIERCE in your pictures!! Love your jacket DIY--much cooler now!!
And what awesome goodies you've received!!

Vintage Coconut said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You rock that bad girl look so well. I love all the studs and your attitude. Great finds and fabulous gifts.

Lucy Nation said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Check you out, I'm thinking Madonna crossed with Molly Ringwald both circa 1985. Love the studs and yay for the Sexual Pistols. One of my biggest music regrets is not going to see them play live at Crystal Palace in 2002. Love Krista's colourful gifts and the vintage postcard from Lakota. Can't get enough of padded hangers and those tights are just plain gorgeous. I see you as more of a Rizzo than a Sandie myself. Either way you rock xxx

Nikki @ Penelope Cat Vintage said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

You look amazing - great job on all the studs. Gorgeous pressies and a fab haul too. I especially love the stole.

My first thought was 'Madonna' - in her hey-day.

Frocktasia said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

"That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighbourhood"...surely that is because she is the QUEEN! How kick-ass cool you look in these pics!
I love your 80s leather jacket revamp, I bet you'd sell it on eBay now, no bother! I've got a fair few 80s leather jackets and coats that I've hoarded over the years, mostly with recycling the leather in mind but this is an even better idea.
Love Krista's colourful card and parcel content. Ruby looks so adorable in that hair band...xXx

A Treasured Past said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

How fantastic is your vest! So 80's chic! Tx

Marisa Noelle said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

That pillow is hilarious! I love how your here is very early Madonna....makes me miss those days :-) Absolutely swooning over those tights! Ruby is too cute for words. If only I had a pup to stick hair bows on. I would probably go way overboard with it!

xoxo Marisa

Style Sud-Est said... Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates
