Trinity Styles Tattoo Tights Review [Sponsored]

So, I've been obsessing over tattoo tights so much but still haven't owned a real pair of legitimate tattoo stockings!
Well, a visit to Trinity Styles solved that problem not only were they affordable, but they have a huge selection of styles to chose from! Since I couldn't make a decision I left the choice to Trinity Styles to send me a cute pair to review~ 
 I can't even articulate how excited I was to get the package in the mail SO quickly from them~
So excited that I opened the package while I was driving and put the stockings on in the middle of my friend's drive way before she came out to the car, ahhaha<3

 Seriously, the details on them are amazing~ something that DIY tights just can't replicate!
Just look at the kitten's face!

 Also, the quality of the nylon is very nice and sturdy! I'm horrible with delicate fabrics as I have talons for nails but I think I've only got one run and I've worn them thrice so far~
 I love how they fit well with any type of outfit I've had on so far~
And I have gotten so many compliments on them<3

 Also, I like how the nylons are very very transparent so it makes the design really pop and it will blend to most skin tones~
There's also a lot of give to them so someone larger than my 5'3" frame can easily wear them without worrying!

My puppy's not to fond that I'm sporting a cat on my calf~

I highly recommend checking them out!
Oh, and they are even available internationally now!

DIY tattoo tights~

Oooh la la, I'm loving this trend right now but I wondered how to make some custom pairs for myself... Well, I figured it out and want to share how to make your ouwn custom DIY tattoo stockings!

 What you will need:
Card board
Stockings [I preffer nude]
Fabric markers
An idea
 Step 1. Take the card board and roll it into a decent sized cylinder and tape it well

 Step 2. Draw a design onto the cardboard OR print out a picture or design and tape it on the cardboard.

 [optional if the pair is for you] put the stockings on and mark on them where you want the design to go then remove them.

Step 3. Gently roll the stocking leg onto the cylinder into place and with the fabric marker trace and colour the design on the stocking

 Step 4. Let sit for at least an hour the using a hair dryer, heat the design well to set it but be careful not to melt the nylons.

That's it~ Super easy and unique way to accessorize your outfit!

Don't forget to have fun and to be creative with it!


2ne1 New Evolution concert~ Nokia

 So, my friends and I went to see 2ne1 at the Nokia in La on Friday!
 My chosen outfit consisted of:
Blackmilk cherry blossom dress
Nastygal mint moto jacket
Jeffery Campbell saddleback nightwalks
Louis Vuitton clutch
and DIY tattoo stockings~
 Close up of my tights<3 [I'll put up a how to entry this week, they're fairly easy and fun to make!]

Any who, fun story we all really needed to use the restroom after leaving the car but all the bathrooms were broken except the one inside the theater and I'm pretty sure the funniest part of the evening was before hand running around looking for a toilet~
Any ways we finally decided to settle into line to get into the venue.

To be honest, I'm kind of pissed that I didn't bring another camera lens to zoom in... I wanted to play it safe because multiple times I've been denied entry because of my camera lense because it extends too far and this time, they didn't even check out my camera...
Oh well.. I'm using my new 35mm standard lens so, I mean you basically see what we saw~ We were near the front tier of the lodge seating  and exact center so it wan't bad at all!
 Well, before starting they played a few music videos to set the mood and even played Psy's Gangnam Style and everyone stood up to dance the dace, which was really entertaining... [I might have joined in too...]

 Anyways, my makeup was very dark and CL inspired. [and I realize that I'm not a fan of very heavy makeup on myself thus the lack of selcas from that night...]
 My boring nails and new double ring~

 I also purchased and used one of those three pronged hair tongs that I've been seeing a lot of lately that make your hair into waves... My verdict is that I'm not that fond of it.. but we'll see if that changes...

 Oh, also beer was flipping expensive!

Now time for excessive pictures of the concert~~~ 'a go go go!'

 [Also, this lens flare is pretty epic]

 Mother flipping Will.i.am joined for the last song, and my friend and I started freaking out!
It was really cool!

Well, my take on the concert was that it was well executed and a great experience~
I had fun the whole time and I loved how loud they cranked the volume!
Also the crowd made the night even better, they were fun and hilarious and their joy was so dynamic!
I am a bigger fan of 2ne1 now and I can't wait to see what the future brings them, and to go to another concert of theirs when I get another chance~

Here, have some after concert food porn:

Yum yum yum~
If you're ever in Down Town or Little Tokyo, I suggest going to Shin Sen Gumi for absolutely bombtastic ramen!

But that's it for now~
Please keep an eye out for a tattoo stockings tutorial and sponsored tattoo stockings review!
