If you're on grungier side of fashion, UNIF (Ur Not In Fashion) is not an unfamiliar name to your ears; the L.A. brand created by the minds of Eric Espinoza and Christina Lai that's notorious for their graphic tees, pastel palettes, satanic references and covering everything they can with spikes. While I wouldn't see myself in every single one of their pieces (check out the clarity bustier), I am in love with many of them. Here are my top three buys.
Ah, the infamous hellraisers. From Tumblr and Youtube to Lookbook, they're everywhere! And for a good reason. The minimalistic base and striking accents are the perfect balance. Remember when I mentioned my love for whole cut loafers? Here's another tidbit about me: I love spikes/studs. Therefore, hellraisers = my dream shoes. Not only that, but people have been raving about how comfortable, solid and true to size they are. If you're not a huge fan of the black/gold pairing, UNIF also has other variations such as red/black, gray/silver, pink/silver, etc. At the moment, many colours and smaller sizes are completely sold out. Once there's a 5-6 back on the market however, I'll definitely consider indulging myself to a little shoe therapy.
TWO: Concho Hat
I first came across the Concho Hat after watching a Wasteland haul from the lovely Jenn Im, aka clothesencounters, aka my fashion idol. Especially as I'm living in Asia, the sun gets extremely hot. Though a lot of the time I'm in air conditioning, there are many times when I need to walk from one location to another. The brim on the Concho hat is the perfect width to prevent rays from getting into my eyes without being too obtrusive. The detailed silver pendants are also a great touch as most of my jewelry is silver toned. Though a bit pricey, there is definitely a lot of potential wear in this hat.
THREE: Drop Out Varsity Jacket
