stu, stu, stu, stud away

By this time into the season, you're probably starting to get tired of the ubiquitous studs; studded bags, studded platforms, studded belts, studded cuffs... no matter what shapes the "studs" come in - round, spikey, star, rivet, diamond.... this 80's punk rock trend has trickled up the fashion ladder this year and down again to every high street/ mainstream chains. This may have deterred me from buying anymore studded goods, but like with sequins, my love for studs never fails. So here are some of my wish list items that would surely help bring out my inner rock chick:
(clockwise from top left): Alaia silver studded platforms from Browns (always classy); Rika keyring from Opening Ceremony (oh and don't forget the studded purses from the same collection); Isetan limited edition G-shock (to die for); miu miu studded leather messenger bag (a more girly take on the trend)


In the meanwhile, I have been wearing my gold studded nautical belt for a splash of punk rock. My friend (aka Lair of the Lion) makes these awesome studded belts using vintage preppy sailor belts, so every one of them is unique and one of a kind! I love this combination of preppy and punk - a bit unexpected, no? The belts come in different colors and stud shapes, and the added bonus is the reasonable price tags that they come with, so check out her etsy store here!


Here's a season's greetings version of me wearing the belt... I know, it's a bit cheesy, but picnik has these holiday special effects, and I just couldn't resist......


An early Happy Holidays to y'all!
