Riot Grrrl Rock.

1990's Animal Baby Barrettes (Middle/High school)
1960's Space Age dress (Thrifted, $1)
1990's Velvet Mary Janes (Thrifted, $6)


What a morning.  It is SO hot & humid here, geez.  Came into the store and everything was in complete disarray- stuff fell from the ceiling, fruit flies EVERYWHERE...  I moved an open can and a swarm flew out into my face.  Grrrr.  So, yeah, fruit fly war has begun... 

Since I stayed up all night glued to the computer watching old music performances, I thought it was only proper to dress in some 60's/90's riot-ey grrrl gear.  Baby barrettes?  Check.  Red lipstick?  Check.  Vintage babydoll-esque dress?  You got it.  Oh yeah, and you can NEVER forget those maryjanes, they tie the whole look together :). 

My band is playing a show tonight (I know, I've probably mentioned this 10 times, lol), and sadly my fringe outfit didn't come together in time... But!  I found an amazing 1950's party/prom dress that I altered to fit last night.  I'm so excited!  Going to top the look off with a messy beehive and some major 60's eye makeup :). 

Back to "Riot Grrrl"; I feel jipped that I had to be in Elementary school in the early 90's...  Although I was in love with Nirvana/Hole/My So Called Life at a young age, I had this aching feeling that there was so much out there that felt so far out of reach.  Luckily, I gave myself a break.  I was 7.  Haha.  Anyway, from the first time I heard girl fronted rock n' roll, I was in love.  And still am!  Watch the performance below- the energy is insane.  And, of course, I included some pictures of my favorite ladies from the 70's-90's :).  Enjoy! 
Hopefully I will have a couple pics from the show tonight for you tomorrow, ally.

  1. I love love this post. Seriously where have all the 90'd gone? I love vintage looks as much as anyone but I feel that this boho 70's trend has got to die out soon. I want mod inspired looks and riotgirl 90's please.
