Those spiked shoes in the first picture are fierce. I've been coveting a spiked headband myself - I saw Mischa Barton wearing one not too long ago nd fell in love. Gorgeous post, as always! :)

Couture Cookie said...

Spikes are intriguing... on other people! This is one of those styles that I'll be perfectly content admiring, and not trying myself.

Yofany said...

Sher said...

Great title :D Wondering about those spiked thigh highs....what happens if I cross my legs? Ouch!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oooh those spiky necklaces are SO cool!

Maria Confer said...

The bathtub photo is awesome and I love the swimsuit.

I need to know how you come up with all your witty titles. Genius.

(you rule. thank you for the comment!!!)

i like your editorial, it's a very clear story that lets readers see for themselves.

spikes, armour, serious fashion for everyday wear; it makes me so hopeful....

fashion seems to be seeing how far it can go. the rules are off so the spectrum of creativity is through the roof.

for me the new aggressive fashion for women seems to be saying, "i dress for me, not you. this is My armour, my defense for the world. i'm not your pretty doll anymore- you can be polite and tell me i look good, just don't touch."

thank you for your work.

Style Crusader said...

Belle de Ville said...

Belle de Ville said...

Good finds - thanks

MizzJ said...

This trend scares me, it's so dangerous!

Averill said...

I love a little bit of an edge to an outfit and spiked accessories would be such a wonderful way to incorporate that into an otherwise more conservative look.

tiltumaria said...

LOOOVE it!

Im loving spikes and in dire need for some spiked jewelry.
Anyhow, have a lovely weekend dear.

WendyB said...

Everything is so violent these days!

The Anthology said...

Stunning. But you know what's so sad? I'd probably hurt myself wearing something so spiky.

Lily G. said...

hot, but ouch! hehe

Christen said...

I love how glamorous and rebellious spikes can be all at the same time!

Sam said...

Hey! I've been noticing a few spikes and studs lately - it's a pretty cool look - perhaps not for me but it looks terrific here. Love that top shot in the bath!!

orangeunlimited said...

Hello~ This is my first time visiting your website. And I really love the pictures and your description. Make me understand the runway collection better.

But I really have trouble understand which pic is from which collection. Have you ever planned to change the format of your post? At least put in captions or even put in a, b, c to refer each pic to your respective descriptions.
Btw, I'm using the safari browser so I'm not sure whether your website displays the same for mine to the usual internet explorer browser.

Hope I didnt offend you. ^-^

i've always loved those louboutin ones....

Mimi said...

E said...

Roddddaaaarte!!!! Want those heels, man!!

Ashley said...

Oooo look at the shoes in that first picture! I die! And I'm still so sad about the Christian Siriano shoes that could have been, they were so hot!

I love spikes in fashion, gives the runway a rocker edge! Couture Carrie! I need your help! I love how you along with other fab bloggers format the pics side-by-side, i don't know how though, that's why pics in my blog are always cascading down, it would really conserve space on my blog to learn how! Thank you, I'd appreciate your help!

Zakuro Yugo said...

Ladies seem to have needles underneath their heart like rose but now show them off!!:D

Also me,,,i sometimes like to show others my thorn by wearing the accessories♥

xxZY

Susan said...

Sharon Rose said...

Carrie said...

I didn't realize spikes were in! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. This is why I love reading your blog. I can stay informed about all the new fashion trends. Another great post, Carrie. Love the collection of photos. Hope you're having a good weekend.

Bradford said...

If you ask me, the Highline has pumped a little too much life into the area. It's just jam packed!

This post makes me want to listen to the RAMONES.

Keith said...

Very awesome. Some really killer photos. Cool stuff here. Hope you've had a great weekend. Cheers!

Life's short. Type fast. said...

These outfits are so cool! I just bought a tuxedo shirt, and can't wait to wear it out somewhere! Also, I love all the jewelry! SO cute.

Jaime said...

Spikes aren't really for me...but I like those earrings you chose!

rossovelvet said...

Well this is for me ! I love the pustpunk, or punk chic, but not only as a 'trend', also as an ideology, punk was one of the most utopic and touching ways of life of its time... Patti Smith, Debbie Harry, the londonian scene, Sprouse... how many great artists behind that ?

Jessica said...

That barbed wire ring is fantastic!

pranksygang said...

hot heels.. blue heels are hot!! and the ear rings are devilish :)
Gr8 post dear!

Intrinsically Florrie said...

Ahh I remember that British Bazaar, December 2008 article. Very sexy shoes indeed!

missDTM said...

these pieces are calling my name!!! i love the ones you picked out.

Noble Beeyotch said...

Such fierce accessories....must try my hands at spikes now!

Peter Breese said...

Wild. You know I used to be a bit of a punk rocker in high school and I never would have imagined this sort of style would ultimately grace runways... I have a feeling some of the punk bands are shaking their heads ;). Of course I'm quite sure the styles have changed since I was a punker.

stylewithbenefits said...

Love those fingerless gloves! I wanted to buy a belt yesterday with spikes but they didn't have a small size. Happy Monday, CC!

xo, becs

LadyLUX said...

Love the spikes! Some of the pieces look a little painful, but overall a beautiful post.
