August 22, 2012-
Many of you know me because I cover what your favorite Real Housewives are wearing, but what many readers don’t realize is that my personal style doesn’t often reflect what the Housewives wear. Sure I wear some brands and trends that they sport, but my personal style definitely varies from theirs., even if I do like what they are wearing. And although I love many types of style, I would definitely have to say I’m a little more Kim Kardashian than Kim Richards. My closet (and wish list) are full of leather leggings, studs, animal print, blazers and skull embellishments. Sound scary? It’s not when you mix the pieces the right way to get a rocker chic femme look.
I am in love with the fact that the spike and stud trend is carrying on into Fall 2012, and I just had to share the Style Stealers I’ve come across for my favorites studded pieces from Versace and Balmain. It’s an important trend coming up, so mix it up into your wardrobe with these pieces that are primarily under $100 and be a stud (you knew it was coming) when September hits, even if you don’t have a Balmain bank account.
