WIW - Those paint splattered jeans + safety pins and creepers :D

Hello again! In a couple of hours i am headed up to Como Zoo with the family to check out the Japanese Lantern Lighting Festival they are having! I'm excited as i've never been before and it looks like a lot of fun. Hopefully i'll remember my camera and can get some good pictures!

I made this tshirt a couple years back inspired by a Balmain shirt that was covered in safety pins. I still really like the look so i decided to break it out again today. I also like to layer a lace top underneath but i couldn't wear my lace bodysuit because it gave me horrible VPLs with these pants. Guess i should pick up just a regular lace tank.

I felt like there was a lot of edgy going on in this outfit so i curled my hair, threw on a headband and added a pretty lip to bring back the cute a bit. ;)

Thanks for looking! Hope you're all having a great weekend!

    So cool. It totally reminds of the female character in Nightmare before Christmas, in a good way.

    OMG OMG OMG!! That top is the cutest thing ever!! And I LOVE the ladylike blue satchel with the rest of the craziness (in a good way) in the outfit!

    Those look like the Helmut Lang paint-splattered pants! Another WOW outfit Nicole. Have you seen these pictured from Blank NYC? I like them, but not sure they will like me.

    I haven't but those are awesome! You should at least try them!

    ooo so fun! you did that yourself? how it your website going?

  • Angie replied 11 years ago


    I can't think of anyone who can pull off paint and safety pins as well as you, Nicole. Versace meets '80s gal! So fab.

    I would never have thought from the description that it would look so great. I was thinking that it is your cuteness that makes it work.

    You are so amazingly creative it hurts. This is such a cool outfit!!

  • Louise replied 11 years ago

    Absolutely fabulous
    Super cool T. I love the different blacks and whites with the vivid splash of blue bag x

    Step aside, Elizabeth Hurley, there is a new safety-pin chic idol!

    Nicole, you are just the cutest!

  • Sveta replied 11 years ago

    Nicole, you would be the cutest if you were not the coolest of them all!
    I think only you can pull this all off so beautifully.

    Cute and bada** at the same time -- you did it again Nicole! I love the whole look and am dying to have my own safety pin t-shirt :)

    You constantly amaze me Nicole in how you mix girly with edgy. Fabulous!

  • Classically Casual replied 11 years ago

    I hope your friends & family appreciate how amazing your style & creativity are. And your sense of whimsy is the best!

    Honestly Nicole, I think this may be my favorite look of yours to date. Everything just works. I can't clearly articulate it, but there is just an amazing flow in this outfit. Hope you had a fun day.

    Nicole, you're amazing. I love the blue bag to top this all off.

    I've never been to the lantern lighting festival, even though it's walking distance from our house. How was it?!

  • MNsara replied 11 years ago

    Too cute! Again! Oh yeah, edgy cute ;-)

  • cheryl replied 11 years ago

    Every time you post an outfit, I think it's my fav but then you outdo yourself and they just keep getting better and better. Once again, you are my fashion idol, lol. :)
