Start wearing purple.

If you had suggested to me three years ago that I should buy a multicoloured leopard print top, I probably would have squealed and hidden behind my excessive amount of black Peter pan collar dresses. But as I've got older I've become a lot more open to various fashion trends, which hasn't had a wonderful effect on by bank account, but has brought me at least minutes of happiness at a time. But this Kenzo inspired top was a must for me, my immediate thought was that it would look cool with my (newly but patchily dyed) purple hair. Coupled with my unnervingly tight American Apparel easy jeans it actually makes for a pretty easy Summer outfit (though sitting down in these is not an option).

(Nape piercing done by Sunderland Body Art)

So far I've not been exactly adventurous with my piercings. I had the typical Claire's Accessories experience by having my ears pierced as a young teenager, as well as getting a nose ring aged 17, which after accidentally punching myself in the nose (it happened) and unknowingly dropping the ring down the escalators at Warren Street Tube Station, I reluctantly gave up on it. This was after having a few Golumn esque days of rather breathily saying 'where IS it?'. This piercing was a whole new direction for me. Infact, all this body modification in the shape of my hair and my piercings is inevitably delayed teenage rebellion. After seeing it on Tumblr in some sort of whimsical photo I knew it was for me, so whilst on a trip to the North East I made the most of their legions of piercing and body art places and got this neck piercing, otherwise known as a nape piercing. It consists of putting a bar through your neck and screwing the two little jewelry pieces you can see on.It certainly wasn't as painful as I thought it would be, and it has been surprisingly easy to take care of, although I warn you, it occasionally gets stuck on your hair and your clothes, but it's just a case of washing it regularly. I absolutely love it and hope to maintain it for as long as possible. My piercing wish list it also growing rapidly, so watch this space!

  1. I love the purple accessories with your hair and your neck piercing is super cool! x

  2. I love this outfit, and you look so cute with purple hair! Is your post title a Gogol Bordello reference? I hope it is!

  3. Your nape piercing is beautiful- I've seen so many reflect (from what I know is bad care) but yours looks like it's there for life :) love your purple hair- I actually whitening the pstchyness I like the lighter fringe
    Awesome top I was like you in my teens- only black!

  4. I really like your jacket. I don't think I've ever seen a neck piercing.

  5. I WANTED A NAPE PIERCING! BUT the three places I went wouldn't allow me to get one in case complications arose and they ended up fucked over due to me and my very weird blood. So I just have shitloads of ear ones to make up for this as they are low risk.

    Also can I just say this is very "elite-blogger-luxe" and the kind of thing one might see on Street Style sites or ASOS FF (which can fuck right off, what is the point of it?!) and whilst I normally don't go in for that kind of style, as a switch from the norm over on Rags of Love it is no bad thing. No Bad Thing.


  6. cool outfit and wow! I love your hair colour :D xx

  7. You are so stunning!! I love that hair color on you. I saw a picture of a girl with purple hair on Tumblr the other day and feel in love. I want to put some light purple in my ends soon. And I love this outfit. That bag is killer! I saw the same bag in a different color on anothr blog and I am dying to get my hands on one!

    I adore your blog.

  8. I also used to be weary of cheetah print, but I am open to it in fun ways like your multicolored top, and your purple hair is so fun :)

  9. All of your outfits are so cute! I actually used to feel the same way about animal prints, I used to think they were a bit tacky, but I'm trying to embrace them now! Anyways I love your blog, following now! Check out mine if you want?

  10. I really like the purple streaks in your hair.


  11. I love your oufit, your hair, top and shoes look so good together - i love colourful otufits! Also, your nape piercing is really cool xx

  12. I like the purple hair a lot, it suits you.
    I really want this nape piercing done but it scares me that it could catch on clothes and things. Also does it hurt when you're sleeping or lying down on your back? I love the way it looks so much.

    1. Hey Katie!
      First of all thank you so so much, and concerning the nape piercing, I don't think you should be scared to get it done. There have been times when it has hurt a little but barely at all. The worst thing I could say about it was that it was a bit red for about a week afterwards, but that's mostly normal. For me it didn't really hurt when sleeping, and though I do get my hair stuck in it sometimes and occasionally catch my clothes the pain really isn't that bad. It's also quite easy for jobs and stuff to cover up if that helps? Let me know if you want to know anything else xx

  13. I want a neck piercing so badly! not sure how it would feel though... but I have my septum pierced and it can't hurt more than that! haha
    take a look at my blog please lovely :) x

  14. Just one word: GORGEOUS! Loving your blog...and you! ^_^

  15. I love your purle hair! It looks so good on you! I used to have purple hair too, but I dyed my dark hair without bleaching it beforehand so it wasn't so pretty and flamboyant. I also love these jeans as well! They look awesome!
    I got my ears pierced when I was a little girl, but never got the guts to get more piercings. I'm thinking of getting a tattoo someday but I don't know if I'll ever find the courage to do it! I'm quite oversensitive to pain, so the chances are slim. x

  16. gorgeous look and love your hair! the bright colours definitely suit you
