Beatnik Meets Heavy Metal

I've purchased some pretty funky and inexpensive clothing at Mesh lately, and had been meaning to do a post featuring some of these fabulous finds for a while now.  Please excuse the awkward posing in the photo above--I was attempting to show off the red slap watch I picked up for $10 at Laguardia airport, and the spooky skull ring I found at Aldo Accessories.   The real stars of the outfit are the faux fur vest and metal studded skirt, both from Mesh.  The vest reminds me of something that Sonny and Cher wore back in their "I Got You Babe" days, so I resisted pairing it with a pair of flared jeans and platform boots.  If you haven't visited Mesh yet, it's definitely worth going, as Rex has been getting all kinds of great stuff in, from vintage fur collars, unique bags, clothing from local designers and pretty party dresses.  Mesh is located at 204 John Street, just off Richmond St.
