Glam Rock

This season I have become obsessed with Sumie Tachibana. As much as I love the glam rock look so many designers are rocking — case in point, Balenciaga, Derek Lam and Vena Cava:

Sumie incorporates a tough, rocker look with more romantic “gothic-y” flair. Oh, the hood. The darling hood on this one:

So, I am going to make an attempt to find affordable rocker pieces that are both kickass and interesting.

Sequins used to remind me of my grandma’s more glam friend — the one from Vegas. Older and wiser now, I’ve learned it’s all about the cut of the dress.
