IT'S NOT SO SIMPLE...


vintage leather moto jacket, Romwe leather patches sweater, vintage sheer sleeveless blouse, vintage leather shorties, old beanie,  Nasty Gal JC Tardy boots with customized spikes/studs by me, vintage leather backpack purse, vintage cross necklaces, Beginning Boutique cage ring, Mad Lady tribal ring and Target socks

Ugh I fucking love Romwe, they always have the coolest shit without breaking the bank! I always find myself begging my hubbie to buy me stuff...like this sweater, hehe.  The pleather patches were just hypnotizing me through the screen, causing me to go into begging mode. I just needed it in my life, you know! Fudge.

So I was stoked when Romwe asked me to do a giveaway of $80 to 2 of my lovely readers!! Yays.

Here's the rules:

1. You must be following VintageVirgin cause this is exclusively for my readers, DUH! So just scroll right up to the top and click follow

2.  Next go to Romwe.com and sign up for an account. You're going to need it to collect those winnings.

3. Once you're done pop back over to VintageVirgin and leave me your email address in my comment box under this post only. 

Sounds easy right? 

The two winners will be chosen at random on Monday, November 21, so you have 2 weeks to enter. Good luck cause you can buy a whole lot with 80 bucks on Romwe, trust me!!

Okay on another note, let's talk shoes...
They were quite easy to make. All you need is Jeffrey Campbell Tardy boots (I got my from Nasty Gal for $99 on sale), textured rubberized spray which can be found at your local hardware store exacto knife and spikes/studs from Spikes and Leather on eBay.

First you spray the shoes evenly with 2 coats and allow to dry overnight. Do not over spray, it has a sand paper like texture so the more you spray the more it clumps up.

Next place studs anywhere of your chose. I picked the back of the shoe for a cool effect kinda like the spiked Litas. The studs are 3/4 double prong and the spikes are 1/2 with screw on backs. I also used an exacto knife and power drill to make the holes. Now that's the hard part, whew.

Finally go back through and touch up any chipped paint along the edges and then you're done and done, son!

It doesn't require a lot of skills, just BALLS cause you could be fucking up a pair of JCs. Get a friend to help you and mark before you cut or drill! 

kiss kiss, 
Virgin

I've never commented before so since this is my first time *virgin* I feel obligated to tell you just how much I will forever love that yellow dress and how you wore it. (Hopefully you'll know what dress and outfit I'm talking about, it's from a post waaay back. Think you were sitting on the floor against a wall or something looking all beautiful. It's a long time ago I saw it but I've saved it in my inspiration file!)
