Can we talk about…

Finger tattoos?

Image

I’m not talking about those big and bad biker “R E B E L” letter-on-every-finger tattoos.

Not that those aren’t cool. I love my tatted biker friends that write anarchy on their fingers.

But I’m talking about those dainty, super cool ones that act as almost another accessory to your bare hands.

Maybe it’s because of my obsession with henna…

Image

Image

Maybe it’s because Kate Foley is my spirit animal and she has some…

Image

Image

Either way, they rock.

Image

Image

You seem them on men a little, but they’re usually on women. Like I said, they’re the more dainty kind. The ones that wouldn’t keep you from getting a job in a professional office. Something you could cover with a band-aid if you need to.

(I had a teacher in high school that had to cover up her ankle tattoo every day with a band-aid. It was the most obvious thing ever.)

I also feel like because they’re so small, it wouldn’t be as painful of a process to get it done. And they’re probably much cheaper than getting Marilyn Monroe’s face on your thigh.

#womancrushwednesday

Say hello to another new series! Every Wednesday we will post about our badass girl crushes for that week. 

Let’s do this thing.

Today we have a singer/songwriter, a photographer, a blogger, a buyer, and an actress.

First up: Ida Maria.

Image

She’s a Norwegian rock musician. Does that tell you enough?

Image

She kind of appeared out of nowhere. She has an awesome batch of pop songs and has this punk-ish energy and bluesy vocals. The coolest.

Image

She started working with other local musicians in Bergen at the ripe age of 16 before moving to Sweden and finding some ballin’ musicians in Stockholm. She played at Swedish rock clubs until she released her first album, Fortress Round my Heart, in 2008.

Image

In my opinion, Katla is so much better. You just want to jam out and scream the lyrics to her songs alone in your car. Or on a girls night riding down the highway. It’s angsty and many tracks are about people being shitty or guys treatin’ you wrong. 

Image

GIRLPOWER.

Next is the beautiful, charming InstaQueen lovin’ an InstaKing: Amanda Jasnowski.

Image

She’s a 21 year old artist/photographer living in Brooklyn, NY. But she grew up in Spain. So.

Image

Her photography is a mixture of film and digital. It’s captivating, moving, and definitely thought-provoking.

Image 

Her ability to capture perfect moments is astounding. She catches light in this mysterious, melancholy way unlike many photographers I’ve seen. 

Image 

And the projects she works on with her boy are really interesting.

Image

This is her boy: Jimmy Marble. Aka: InstaKing. Another awesome photographer. In my opinion, they’re a powercouple. Adorable, artsy, quirky and eclectic. They both love traveling and photography. I ship them 38223.4 percent.

Image

Check her out on Instagram so you can fangirl like I do: @hokaytokay

Don’t worry, she won’t bite…or will she? The new NastyGal blogger: Steaktooth.

Image

Rachael Finley. Cool girl all around. Spends her free time making lists and drinking wine. Fan of reptiles. The girl that writes honestly and takes kodaks and has friends with long hair that go to bike shows. 

Image

She listens to rap music and grows cacti. 

And her nickname is Steak. So.

Image

That’s her iguana. On her head. Are you crushin’ hard yet?

Image

Check out her blog. She’s hilaaaaaarious.

Probably my favorite girl crush and spirit animal for the past month ever: Kate Foley.

Image

She mixes high fashion with vintage pieces and target finds. She has the raddest house and cutest cat. She loves platforms + socks. She’s fucking British. 

Image

Stop being awesome. I hate you.

Image

Kidding. Please be my best friend.

Image

She’s also a buyer for Opening Ceremony. You know, no big deal.

Image

Put your hands together for the all time girl crush of any Revival fan:

Image

Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink.

When the movie was released, every cool girl want to be Andie Walsh. Her story is fantastic. It’s timeless. Working-class girl falls for the preppy boy in school and hitches him. Then there is the typical guy best friend who (in this case) openly and obviously loves her. It’s perfect and basically every girl’s high school dream experience. 

Image

She works for a really cool record store, is friends with a super quirky older woman with fantastic fashion sense, makes her own dress and goes to prom by herself because of her awesome girlpower and ability to stand up for herself (take notes, ladies), and snags the love of her teenage life in the end. Tell me you don’t have a major girl crush. 

Image

Personal rant: I know that it’s controversial and it was essential to the story and their friendship…but damnit I wanted Duckie and Andie to get together. So much chemistry and so adorable and their styles explode together. Ugh.

Image

I’m just a little bitter. 

Image

Her style, though. Woah. It’s creative, original, and totally 80s (which I can’t get enough of). 

And her best friend is a well-dressed, hilarious dude. So.
