TGIF – a Tribute to the Fashion of the Weekend

Thank Goodness it's Friday

It’s almost here.  The long-awaited weekend.  For anyone who’s in college or even high school, or who works at a job that’s less than friendly towards visible tattooing and piercings, the weekend is the time when we can really let loose.  It’s the time when all of our favorite jewelry comes out, our tattoos show off, and our interestingly colored hair can be let down.  So in the spirit of uniqueness and knowing how to have a good time, here it is: a tribute to the artful fashion of the weekend.

Weekend Style for Alternative and Pierced

Weekend chic isn’t just a fabulous phrase anymore, it’s an actual phenomena that’s sweeping the world of alternative fashion.  Even popular culture is influencing the trend, with singers like Rihanna and Katy Perry spitting out weekend anthems like wild fire, and crazy punk and club brands turning out everything from glow in the dark hoodies to purposely destroyed stockings.  It sure is a wonderful time to be a pierced goth, punk, or alternative chick.

So how do you pull together a hot party look for whatever your weekend entails?  I personally start with glow, animal print, snake skin (faux of course), glitter, or neon, and then let the mood take me.

Just check out the hot new brand of snake skin.  Perfect for the club, and with some added shimmer and a dose of hot color.  Absolutely fabulous.

And glitter, for it’s part, has been through some serious changes since the 90’s, and we’re loving every minute of it.  Galactic looking shimmer is definitely a favorite, more modern, and less clunky way to bling.  As the popular phrasing goes, “sparkle, sparkle.”

So here’s to the weekend, preserver of our sanity, purveyor of partying down, and unflinching guardian of a little thing we like to call “fun.”  TGI (seriously!) F.
