Those 80s Earrings

I'm a big fan of wearing large earrings with short hair, so I've been on the hunt for bold 80s style earrings on my vintage shopping travels. Something about the geometric design of these $3 beauties made my heart skip a beat! Finding these earrings instantly made me regret passing up some brooches (of a similar style) on our last trip to Cleveland, Oh. Oh well, it's not the first time I've had to live with shopping regret.

I'm hoping I'll find some more crazy geometric earrings to add to the small collection. Ohh, I would love some gaudy leopard ones or zebra or glitter! Hahaha! 

Thank you for reading!

The Last Beat of My Heart : Death in June

I was pretty damn excited last week when I ran out to my local record store to pick up a copy of Death in June's "Nada Plus" on vinyl. I'm a DIJ fan and though there is a lot of controversy surrounding Douglas P, I enjoy the music at face value rather than getting involved with the political view points that are neither self imposed by the band or by outside individuals.

This is a rare strange fan made (?) video to one of my favorite songs on the album.

Thank you for reading!

Subatomic Necklace by Lemantula Designs

I featured Lemantula Designs in a past Kitsch Picks and the designer Stephanie contacted me and thus we decided to do a collaboration! I was excited when I opened up the package that contained the Subatomic Necklace. The piece is so nice and lightweight and I am so impressed with Stephanie's attention to detail with her use of 3D printing technology. 

Stephanie is a trained metalsmith and with her exploration into CAD and 3D printing, she's created these wonderful accessories with polymer, acrylic and sintered nylon. Her unique visions came to life as Lemantula Designs in 2013 and she is now offering the world her wonderfully wearable geometric-inspired creations.

Stephanie writes about her jewelry:
"It has since become my passion. Constructing beautiful and unusual jewelry is one of the most satisfying processes I can imagine."

The Subatomic Necklace's atomic mid-century design intrigued me as it was so modern and current using 3D technology to make such a retro-inspired piece. I really enjoy atomic print and adding a little touch to any outfit was like an accessory lover's dream come true. I'm always on the hunt for the 'darker side' to the retro aesthetic and Stephanie must understand gals like me. *Wink*

The necklace makes a great statement piece, so styling my outfit around it was a lot of fun. I went for a dress with a plunging necklace to ensure you can see all the unique features of the Subatomic Necklace and added some striped leggings to infuse a little kitschy fun to the black and white motif. My wedge creepers and a few bracelets complete the look and a new favorite outfit is born!

Lemantula Designs is offering my readers a rad $5 off coupon on your etsy order! Just use the coupon code COFFINKITSCH13. Offer expires 10/31/14, so make sure you check out the Lemantula Designs etsy shop!

Revenge of the 80s Part II

After a long week of work brought me to Saturday and it was time for the second Revenge of the 80s night. I was pretty exhausted, but was ready to have a few drinks and dance! 

My outfit was pretty simple; my favorite thrifted high waisted skirt, ruched lace top, pointy boots, my trusty hat, and lots of jewelry. Last 80s night I dressed more 'in' with the New Wave vibe of the event, but this time around I just went with something more typical me, 80s goth! Hehehee!

Today I'm walking around like a zombie from the lack of sleep and drinks that were imbibed, but it's always totally worth it. Like, totally!!!!

I was really excited when the dj's played "Flesh for Fanstasy" last night!

Thank you for reading!
