ttF Fashion Diary: Metal Mayhem

ttF Fashion Staple: Tan Striped Tee
My friend Daniella invited me to the Metal Mayhem Festival. Neither of us are exactly heavy metal people but I’m always up for an adventure. The first thought that went through my mind was, of course, what on earth I would wear. I decided on a lightweight chambray shirt, denim cut-offs and my striped staple. To make it more “metal” I layered on studded accessories, a key ring and gladiator sandals. I thought I looked decently edgy. A true metal fan described me as “squeaky clean.” Oh well, A for effort. The funniest part was Daniella had the same idea as me, pairing her denim short with a striped BCBG top, edged up with black boots.

Although we looked more Coachella than Metal Mayhem, we had a blast backstage, sipping drinks in the VIP tent and watching the intense moshingโ€”from a safe distance in our matching stripes.

Club Monaco tee, Forever 21 shirt, Wet Seal shorts, Express necklace, Modcloth ring, vintage sunglasses, Matt & Nat bag, daniblack sandals
