The Darker Side Of Minnie

Minnie Mouse is no doubt a chic animal, but what if she went goth? This might be the inspiration behind Zac Posen's Fall 2008 collection and this girl from Stockholm snapped by the Facehunter.
Both are drawing me back to a hairstyle I used to rock a lot in junior high...those were the days of experimental up-dos!
Outfit details: dress- H&M, sweater- H&M, tights- some shop in Athens Greece, shoes- Urban Outfitters, jacket- Anthropologie
Awhile back I tied in the Weardrobe contest with the alliterative Amelia. The prize was a $50 gift card and I quickly decided to push my comfort level a pick up the black lame leggings. They've arrived in the mail and my verdict: less shiny and frightening than expected and much cosier.
shirt- Vain and Vapid, skirt- Forever 21, cardigan- H&M, shoes- Urban Outfitters, leggings- AA

  20. Aww you look adorable as always! I bought a pair of the lame leggings but the ones with the shiny sparkles on them because I didn't feel that the regular ones gave the effect I wanted. They were worth every penny I love em !

  21. 'Minnie Mouse' hair art (and hair art in general) is always amazing, Lady Gaga's been sporting a similar do ...

    Btw - in that case you have excellent haste in gloves, and your dad knows how to choose a good hat!

  22. Really liking those leggings - they look very classy/rock n' roll in one.

    I wish I could do things with my hair. I am and always will be inept at that.

  23. I rocked those buns SO hard in third grade. Inspiration from Baby Spice maybe? I don't think I could make them as chic as you do at this age though. Impressive to the max!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm seeing Minnie everywhere these days, quite a bold look to flaunt I think. But when put together right it looks so kooky and cool. I have the lame leggings in silver they are soo comfy :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. you are rocking the minnie mouse hair. I wonder if I could pull that off? hmm...

    Cute hair-do. It reminds me of Sailor Moon :)

    In response to the comment you left me: I enjoy Art Nouveau architecture. This building is a beauty. Did you happen to see it while you were in Budapest?

  29. I remember the days of experimental updos! I just wish I could pull off this look at work, but it would make me look ten years old.

    I love the way you styled those leggings!

  39. A Goth Minnie! Now that's an interesting thought. I have often given much thought to the darker sides of popular children's characters. But a sartorial twist like this is welcome.

  42. Back in the days when I read American Girl magazine, I totally wanted that hair style--but I've always been a complete failure at doing anything interesting with my hair, so my desire is unfulfilled. The Zac Posen models really pulled it off. I love the leggings!

  52. haha amazing. this was totally a go-to in grade 8 for me! it reminds me of bjork too (who is also amazzzzing)and raver kids (remember jnco jeans?!)
    good job with the leggings, ive been thinking about them for a while too, just to add some texture to outfits, like in lue of black tights or something? i dont think i could do them as pants only or anything lol. i like how you wouldnt really think they fit into your typical style persay but how you made them fit and look great:)
    and i am happy that you got the reno 911 thing, i wasnt sure if anyone would.

  57. Soo I finally mixed grey nail polish and I love it. It's great how you can adjust the colour accoring to your mood. I think for spring I might use more white and make it a bit lighet! Thanks for the idea my dear!

    Your hair is so cute in these pictures!!
