PLAID IS RAD


vintage plaid cape c/o Cobrasnake, thrifted AA ballet dress, H&M heart garter tights(thanks D), vintage red hat, vintage leather backpack purse, Lulu's triple stacked wedges with customized studs, Beginning Boutique cage ring, Mad Lady chain cuff, DIY spike leather cuff, Romwe spike cuff bracelet, vintage cross necklace/rosary and random rings

The weather has been complete and utter shit lately! Like overcast city followed by rain and a cold front...that last like a couple of hours then back to sunshine town, boooooooooo! So over it.
I may be doing pics inside the house the next couple of days. I'm super scared of getting sick again. 

Anywho I've been uber busy and beginning to understand why you need an agent in this crazy blog world. You get offered opportunities left and right but you have no idea on how to handle the business side of blogging. You don't know if you're getting fucked and signing your life away. Thank Satan I've been staying true to myself and making good decisions on my own but somedays I need help.

Are there any bloggers/readers out there who have an agency? Can you still make all your own decisions? I really don't wanna be someone's bitch or puppet! Let me know.

Don't worry I'm not about to become some douchebag dipped in all designer duds and take you on all my boring adventures to stores I can't really afford and feel uncomfortable in. I'm still going to be me...VV! I just wanna show you that you don't always have to go that route.

Thanks for all the support, I couldn't do it without.

kiss kiss,
Virgin

obviously, it depends on the agency. but there are certainly limitations to all of them. (this i know from experience) if it doesn't entirely restrict your creative juices, working with an agency will be like having a personal assistant in a way. I've tried both and prefer to work without one (but that is only because I do blog work on the side of my full-time writing gig).

oh p.s. your cape is rad. i LOVE your style.

I second the flawless makeup comment. I love the whole black Little Red Riding Hood theme you got going on in these pictures. Super cute. :]

Forever vintage virgin! I'm so glad you promote vintage . You rule. Also all of the spikes and studs in this outfit are making happy. Those shoes are so badass and the plaid cape is perfect with that dress!

Those tights are amazing! :) I hope I have one too.

An agent isn't the same as a manager. You are still your own manager. An agent takes up to 20% of what you make and makes sure you aren't getting screwed but you still make all your own decisions. I act and have worked with agents all my life. Good luck!

You are the cutest, loveliest, most bad-ass woman EVER and while I love everything you drape on your body, this outfit is particularly awesome because it combines, like, goth AND lumberjack.

I support the shit out of you and here's a bunch of virtual kisses from my black heart: xxxxxxxxx

Love the tights, and the "preppy", plaid cape is such a great contrast to your edgy, vintage outfit. So stunning!

I bought the same shoes you are wearing just about 2 months ago and they are the most uncomfortable shoe ever!! R they uncomfortable for you? Just wondering. I sort of regret buying them.

yes and no, i had to break them in first for a few days. it's kinda like walking on your tippy toes. trouser/thin socks make them more wearable.
strangely enough i wear them more in pictures, than real life. i can only do a few hours tops.
