Yeah, I’m just a bebop baby, and I don’t take nothing from no one! This Is my baby, no intentions on selling this one. Sometimes you have to make yourself something special. I have been working on this leather for years now and each piece is personal! Like the Deicide button was given to my little brother at the show and he gave it to me,its rare. The Misfits Pin came off the Coffin Box set I bought at Tower records in my teens. The big Pink Kawaii heart(just like mine) came from my friend’s line Lil Miss Alphabet.Love her. Complete with my Dollcult Barbie, Iconic Nikki Lipstick Pin! The Dr.Frank N Furter button is everything! I want to be him! My mom wore this pin on her leather when I was little. I always tried to steal it and was never successful. Only two valentines ago she sent it to me in the mail with her pink baby shoes, and other special pieces she wanted me to have. I cried! Tears of joy. We bonded hard of Rocky Horror Picture show! I even taught my 4th grade class the time warp for show and tell. It is Still my favorite movie of all time! Loved his leather! You can take the girl out of the street, but you can’t take the street out of the girl! Here is me in 1999 rocking my first leather as a baby gutter punk. Getting Turnt in the Horton Plaza Mall Bathroom. My friend Leah Took it, glad she did. Being part of the punk scene was so inspirational. Going to shows was fun. Besides the music, the message, Non conformity, no fucks given, and fuck you! There were the coolest looks around! Girls and boys fully charged with colored hair, and one of a kind styles. Decorated Vests, Hand painted leathers, Pants sewn with dental floss, patches, buttons, lighter tops, studs, animal print, plaid, band shirts, bondage belts, spiked braclets,chokers, and other cool things. I wish I was as talented then as I am now or I would have graced the steets with this jacket sooner. I am finally making all the things I wanted to make then, but better! I decided to go with pink because This is my leather, and pink is my favorite color! Also just because I am wearing pink, dose not mean I can’t kick your ass any less hard than I can if It were in all black. Not that I advocate violence, I just never got the concept of looking weak because of a certain color. I was made fun of for wearing all black growing up too, people will say anything. Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder. A lot of people comment, you should throw more thrash metal on there dude, or Theme it all punk, all metal…whatever! I thought about those things due to social pressure, but standing out is not about fitting in.. Be yourself! That and, this is MY Jacket! SO that is why I have; Joy Division, Siouxsie, Cramps, Night of the Living Dead, Misfits,Thin Lizzy, Lou Reed, Megadeth, Maiden, SUB HUM ANZ, Black Flag, Bettie Page, Operation IV, Sepultura, Sex Pistols, Danzig, Marilyn, Bruce Lee, lots of Fucks, Butthead, and Love is in Mixtapes! All stuff I love, am passionate about, and listen too often. Music that shaped me, and even saved my life. So it a story, aside being a fashion piece. I started by painting counless layers of baby pink paint on the chosen sections and sleeves. Then I painted on the animal print because DUH! Then my little bro came over, we watched old punk films from my library, and went to town. It takes forever to Heavy a jacket and I haven’t done one like this before. I spaced them very close, and went through bags of cone studs. If you try this at home your fingers will be sore! I still have hours to clock in on this baby. I glued crystals in between the studs as well so it really sparkles! These Pink Heart Platforms by Nikki Lipstick and Y.R.U. go perfectly with this jacket, a match made in Heaven. I love mixing pink and punk, tough and girly. Black and Pink look so good together too! “It’s not my fault that I’m fucked up. I’m just a product of a selfish world. My whole life I’ve been an outcast. Now I don’t care, I don’t want to fit in anywhere!- Naked Agression “People are so quick to judge me. I do not care I will not change for them. There’s so much pressure to conformId rather be dead then act fake and end up like them!- NakedAgression. I love this band love her words,and values!I am also rocking a Nikki Lipstick Pink Stitches collar, a vintage spiked anklet, vintage black bodysuit, tutu skirt, doll leg tights, and a bondage belt I painted pink. Hair is N Rage Bubblegum pink, diluted with conditioner. Handmade the Hello Titty, Nail Polish, and black liquid eyeliner brooches. Later, daddy-os Love your life,love who you are,and love other for who they are. Pressure and guilt fuck people up more than what you think is killing them. God is Love.
Here I am having countless tea parties with one of my best friends, and I fail to notice she has the cutest stuff right under my nose! Seriously I love each piece! She is a little to quiet about it, because I would have flipped sooner had I known. When you are working hard on your own art, sometimes you miss out on others. I promote for so many cute brands, my friends, my own, but often forget about the closest ones! It bothers me is that I make so much stuff for strangers, and customers, and my mom, tia, grandma, boyfriend, whatever….. are walking around without the baddest custom threads on. No Way! I have always been bad at prioritizing but it is never too late! Ya Know, When you get busy you just dive in, and try to make it all work. So I am dedicating this post to the fabulous creations of My girl Lissette, and her line Madame X. Named after the famous painting. I chose the pieces that really fit into my style, but check out her storenvy to fall in love with one of her pretty creations. Buying from small business and from artists who create things with their own two hands, is so much more beneficial to the world then mass produced clones. So if you want magical vibes, I promise you Madame X will deliver.
Madame X – An Apparel Affair

I also made the adorable cotton candy rainbow shawl. I have this vintage marabou one that I treasure, so I made a pattern from it to create this one.

They are filled with treasures like this! This color combo of pastels is my favorite, pink, mint, and baby blues forever! I tend to lean towards gold too, guess I’m just gaudy like that.

Only a few left so check it out. I wear the star necklace with everything! Perfect layering necklace, and so light! Tickle Me Pink. The beauty brooches are coming soon! Not only am I obsessed with layering pins on jackets, but I am also with beauty shop nostalgia! I have been obsessed with lipstick, nail polishes, perfume bottles, brush mirror sets, powder puffs, eyeliner, mascara, and other things of that nature…since I was a kid. The sight of vintage beauty ads, old movies, and images of Vanity’s just give me the chills! The whole ritual of dolling up, curls, makeup, dancing in your lingerie, its what makes us girls! No I really love it, my favorite part of the day or night, never gets old. So I had to make these babes. I made some fun summer ones too. Baked, hand painted, and decorated by me!

When I first heard the album I was so in love, so fun to sing and dance to. I like all the songs so I had to buy the album. Plus tells a story and the booklet is to die for. Illustrated by Chloe Tersigini. Below is one of them. So, I have had this adorable little pink metallic leather jacket for years now, and did not know what to paint on it until that song came on. I grabbed a brush, some white paint, and free handed it. Then I thought of my favorite fashion club crier from DARIA, Stacey! Had to paint her on the back but with a pastel makeover. Painting her also made me think of how cute those bobble hair ties she wore are. Inspired, I went out and bought tons of them at the beauty supply shop. Got some more hair clips too NEVER ENOUGH! I am a 90s girl. BTW, Giving them out with purchases too! Then I put on some cherries on her for a personal and a rockabilly twist, then some jeweled tears. This cutie is available on my shop MEOW! Macymarie.storenvy.com She cried until she then could see. That she wasn’t even worthy of All her love and ABCs. So she spelt fuck you in 123! I also went back to pink, because I feel like I should have been born with this color! Don’t see the world in black n white, see it in shades of pink. Support local music, and small business! Shop from artists, designers, your friends, work together and make magic, make love. Make Up your own mind, and let your conscious be your guide. Trust in yourself. Wear whatever you like, and always be you! Be good to yourself and see the light in everybody! Be grateful for what you have and believe in whats to come. Don’t Judge, or try to change people, love them for who they are. Have empathy and help each other grow but Don’t grow up it’s a trap!
Have you ever wanted to be a platinum Blonde but think it is to hard or expensive? I have been doing my own hair for a while now and can share with you my ways. If you already know then keep calm and carry on. I wanna be a platinum blonde! Just like all the sexy stars, Marilyn and Jeane, Jayne, Mae and Marlene! Yeah they, they really had fun! Blondie! In a luminous day-glo shade. Walk into a bar and I’ll have it made in the Shade! ‘Cause if that’s all it takes; a double processed blonde….I wanna be a platinum blonde! Yeah I even tried wearing a wig for a while. It was the right colour, but not the right style! Gonna get some peroxide at the beauty supply…See ya later!
You will need a mixing bowl or Applicator bottle for your dye. You can even decorate it like I did! I prefer a bowl for this mix because it is thick! I bought mine at forever 21, but you can get them at your local Beauty Supply shop. Sally’s is where I purchased these! 30 creme developer(will last a little while), A bottle of Clairol Cream Hair Lightener, and two packages of Activators. I use two because my hairdresser taught me this way. So here is a step by step guide to becoming a blonde.
Before You start, try on a wig and see if it suits you! It takes a lot of upkeep and work so no lazy babes allowed! It does itch, it may burn, and every head of hair reacts differently! Breakage can happen. I am a mousy brown so it lifts quick on me. Also You need virgin hair, or a lot of growth since your last crazy color change. I had to wait 7 years to go back to being platinum from going black. Only if you want soft hair still! Also have a spotting partner, my boyfriend does my roots in the back. So If you are lazy, not careful, or patient, then don’t try this at home. If you are ready to start doing your own hair or roots…It is so easy, it becomes routine, like shaving, or brushing your teeth. Shall we. First put on some gloves and pour in the ingredients! Now mix it all up good, and it will be a thick bleachy blue. Like runny peanut butter. Always Apply toy our roots first. If you are doing the whole head then go for it, but please cut of any damaged hair before you begin. Go in sections, from root to tip. Then kinda shampoo it all together with your fingers to get it all! Wrap it in a cap or not, and go under a dryer, or not, and just let the lightening begin. It will either way. If this is your first time then lift until orange yellow, and shampoo, condition, and wait a week or day or two then do the whole head again, if you want white hair! Do lots of hair masks! I do one or two a week. Pastels do not show well on yellow hair! Ialso recommend manic panic Ultra Violet for color control. You have purple hair for weeks but why not? If you are doing just part of your hair, say the underneath only, or just bangs, or a streak; then section it out first and pin the rest away from it, apply your bleach,and wrap in foil, or anything to separate it from bleaching the other hair. Here is what a root touch up should look like. Not perfectbut it works. Now when you are doing a root touch up do it often at least every 3 weeks. The less overlap the better and less damage you will have. I part my hair down the center, and brush on the dye, from the roots I slightly brush up and overlap so I don’t miss any hair, it is a bitch to go back. Then use a comb or the back of the dye brush to dig another part, and flip the hair over. Go from left to right, whatever works for you. Then keep doing that carefully until you reach the ears. Then flip it all up, pin it,and do the other side, carefully lying down bleach over your roots and layering the next part over. Practice makes perfect. You will get the hang of it, just keep straight lines if you can. Then pull it all up together over your head in a sloppy bun. By now you should feel the tingle and see some lightning, then have your partner do the back the same way. Be careful, it is time sensitive, it is bleach! I usually wait 20 to 30 min before rinsing. It all depends on how fast your hair lifts, so when you see it at a pale yellow then its ready. Carefully shampoo motion the roots out so you really make sure you got it all,from this time and last time. I recommend an ash blonde toner and purple shampoo to keep it white. Rinse,shampoo, and condition right away when you feel ready. Always remember to Wrap your hair before bed if you want to remain with soft pretty hair. When you bleach It you damage the hair, but This helps a lot! Plus It helps hold your curlers.
A starving artist is an artist who sacrifices material well-being in order to focus on their artwork. Iv’e always considered myself one of those but My hairdresser insisted thatI am a starving star! as he styled my hair to platinum perfection. He is near 80, still doing fabulous hair, and got his beauty degree in the 60’s. He raves about the good old days when women were lined up to have their hair styled! In all sorts of unique and fabulous ways. I love him, he has been dolling me up since I was a kid and taught me everything I know about hair! Having bleach on my scalp and sitting for hours under the dryer is second nature. Because of Ray I got to rock perfect pin curls, and waves in high school! I am lucky to know him. This is me at 16 shooting a pin up calendar. The Girl Can’t Help It. Hey Sailor. I even got my Monroe pierced at 17. Lipstick was Ruby Woo by MAC, everyday! Below is me at jr. prom, I had Ray make me Marilyn Monroe. We’ve got our obsessions! So I will fill this post up with her quotes because I love her words. “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Marilyn Monroe was huge influence on my style, I always am taken by all of her images, outfits, and her smile. So beautiful, glamorous, and a little sad. She had IT! Star Quality. Will You still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful? “Will you still love me when Iv’e got nothing left? but my aching soul. ” Lana I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
Creativity has got to start with humanity and when you’re a human being, you feel, you suffer.
‘I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.’ “I am trying to find myself. Sometimes that’s not easy.”“Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.”We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.“If I’d observed all the rules, I’d never have got anywhere.” Fame doesn’t fulfill you. It warms you a bit, but that warmth is temporary.
Roses are red, violets are Blue, sip them in tea, its good for you! Well at least the roses. They have so many health and beauty benefits, a soft floral flavor, and so beautiful to sip. Pink, and rich in natural antioxidants! I love it Iced and warm, but its summer so cold it is! You can buy them online too if you can’t at the market. All you have to do is steep them in almost boiling water like you would any tea, but a bit stronger. Let it cool, and toss in a handful of rosebuds. Place it in the fridge to chill or meddle for a while, then pour over Ice in a pretty glass. Enjoy. There are lots of articles you can read online about its benefits, but I found this pic that sums it up! Also fun to experiment with other flavors, like green tea, or my favorite, some coconut milk, sliced strawberries, and a little honey or raw sugar. It taste like a delicate french candy I love.
I love this movie so much,my mom showed it to me when I was little, and used to joke I was the Bad Seed. I am no evil child, but I love them as characters! Rhoda is cute, devious, smart, and doesn’t have much of a conscience, which makes her quite the little sociopath. Rhoda was so pissed that she didn’t receive a medal that she felt she deserved, that she ended up killing her competition. Accused of drowning her classmate,she goes mad and denies, lies, and kills more. Her Mom has no clue what to do with her monster, and wonders if it is nature, or nurture that spoiled this egg. Is evil hereditary? Or are people made that way? Why Can’t You wash of blood? So I up cycled this vintage peignoir and decorated it in Bad Seed Style. I dyed it baby pink, painted and sewed on the patch, made mini ribbon roses and bows, then crystal-ed on a seed. I love thow it came out! I then styled a Rhoda look and went to go shoot it by the lake, and play the role! I didn’t drown anybody but I was a crazy little brat. What will you give me for a basket of kisses? Give Me back My SHOES! You tell lies like that, you won’t go to Heaven when you die!I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t feel ANY way at all.
