Mean Streets and Pastel Houses

fallHere’s a collage I finished this evening [while avoiding the ultimately inescapable mountain of packing I still have to do for college…]

Lately, I’ve been craving an amalgamation of Klimt’s seductive, exuberant glamour and serious black-and-white, shredded/studded toughness. To that end, I recently purchased the following necklace on Etsy:
il_430xN.74311099This necklace (called the Large Fuse Necklace) is, as the name suggests, made of a series of now-defunct household fuses. That industrial material, coupled with its dramatic, bib-like structure, makes it a perfect piece of jewelry to push my aesthetic out of its comfort zone while remaining totally ‘me.’

It’s so fabulous– I can’t wait for it to get here!

Oh yeah… here are the sources for my collage: dripbook, examiner.com, ffffound, geekologie, girl a la mode, i.models.com, ilovepsycho, lefashion, photobucket, photos.trading.com, style bubble, the electric, the x file of yulya x’s fashion world, and writedesignonline. Yikes… it sure takes a lottt of sourcing for me to make a collage 🙂

  1. Your collage is beautiful but also made me think. Like about how we try to fit in a technological and impersonal society, but still be who we are. That’s the way you juxtaposed the images and what it got me thinking about. Wonderful. As for the fuse necklace, I think that I’d have to see it on someone to know … 🙂
