Lana Claws

dress: ASOS - nails: EBAY

O. EM. GEE. People, these talons I call fake nails might be the most awesome thing ever. Ok, so wearing them makes me feel a bit like a WAG (in the best way possible) and I have to learn how to type all over again, but I feel incredibly glamorous, like an old time movie star. Makes me want to (fake) smoke with one of those cigarette holders, and wear (fake) fur shrugs and slingback peeptoes, and eat caviar on toast. Like, chique and tacky at the same time: LANA DEL REY STYLE! Girl is my number one inspiration these days, I hope you're not sick of her yet CUZ I SURE AIN'T. 

Her postmodern mix of grit and glamour appeals to me to no end: the best way to stick it to all those arrogant pricks who try to tell you what (not) to wear is to confuse your onlookers by creating your own, hybrid abomination of style by mixing pretty with ugly, cute with bold and right with wrong. If you succeed, you'll be hailed as the next it-girl. If you fail, at least you had some fun!

I actually think I look a bit like her in these pics <3 


Just stop me when I want to get my teeth capped.

  10. Holy nails Batman! I don't think I could function with nails like that. (I'm already drawing on my contact lenses ON MY EYE as I put on eyeliner, I don't need help poking my eyes out haha) I feel a little bad that I have no idea who Lana Del Ray is (yes, even after everything you've said) but I guess she must be awesome if you dig her!

  11. you should google some of her songs, hauntingly beautiful!! and actually, those fake nails are LESS dangerous than my real ones: not nearly as sharp, and you're more "aware" of them as well. But it does get hard to do your make up :D
