Summer is here, sun is out, and sunglasses are teasing you with all designs and shapes. But how to pick the right one for you and make it your hottest accessory this season? With so many colors and styles there's deffinitely one for you, use these few simple tips to help you choose:
If you've got fuller cheek bones, you're lucky, but it's also tricky to find some really flattering pair of sunglasses, you should avoid small styles, stick to bigger, over sized shades, more in Scene Queen style - try these Ladies Scene Queen Oversized Sunglasses they come in both black and brown. If you're in party mood, go for rocking White Oversized Summer Shades, they are proved to add funky vibe to any outfit!
I know, patience is not my middle name, but it apparently does work! I had really chilled out week, and I couldn't be bothered to worry about anything - of course, the usual work thing was still going on, but I did not get stressed when my stationery order came incomplete, the T-shirt order went into insomnia after I paid for it, and lovely lady at Boots pretended not to understand me when I asked for something she didn't know about... It's unusual for me, as I am always on the grumpy side of life, being perfectly happy with 'glass is half empty' sillyness.
So anyway, I decided to try the Beatles recipe 'let it be' and try 'let it all slide' - and it really worked! Amazing!
The missing stationery order arrived the next day, the silly lady at Boots didn't get any prettier by making a fool of me, and I spent £36 online instead in her store, and T-shirts are arriving this Monday, with additional designs, which are the best of the bunch I've ordered - so yes, being patient does really work, I don't know if it will work for me, as I would rather pass a kidney stone then be patient, but yes, it works for some. Good Night my folks.

That's probably the Endless Story, if I focus more I'd write an essay about it, but life's not for remembering all nasty things that happened to you, after all ;)
Anyway, I was walking on the street in this beautiful sunny Sunday morning, wearing the coolest outfit ever, when I was about to cross the street on Zebra Crossing. It was one of the 'On Demand' crossings, where the cars always stop. So the car stopped, and I, with cool gesture of 'cheers mate' went on to crossing the street, when suddenly my shoe just felt down from my feet, and I nearly tripped over!
I had to stop, grab my shoe, jump back to the pavement, let the cars go, and put the shoe back on, and then try to cross the street again! How very embarassing, luckily only one guy've seen it, he smiled at me, maybe I didn't look like a complete idiot, but I felt like one :/
Summer mood rules in my heart, I cannot fight it - why would I? I love all summer designs, short, light materials, bright and colorful. Can't believe it's only March, in Britain (theoretically) is still calendar Winter - at least for another 5 days ;)
I love printed Emo Skinnies - they are so funky, fresh, and are deffinitely eye-catching. Are they common? You can't see many people with White Zebra Skinny Jeans on their bottom, otherwise it would go mainstream! That makes this design so valuable, when you wear it you know you're unique, look great and feel fab! I love wearing Animal Designs with some plain tops, eg. black vest, red t-shirt, and complete the look with some funky hair accessories - wish my hair was longer to make it more Scene ;)
I absoluely love the combination of Natural Leopard Drainpipe Jeans with red top / belt / accessories - I think those two designs look happy together, and are very flattering!
I love vibrant hair colors: black, blond, red, with pink streaks - they are impressive! With some original choppy hair-cut, you can create wonders on the top of your head :)
But how to create - and keep this look for longer without frequent visits to the salon? There's one simple way - dye your hair yourself! It's really quite easy, and it requires only little bit of your time. For instant refreshing touch-ups, dye your hair every 3 - 4 weeks.
When dying your hair, you'll need protective towel (ideally an old one, that might get dirty), rubber gloves and a plastic foil / bag. First, read the instructions on the hair dye, and prepare the mixture. Always mix all ingredients completely to avoid different shades when putting the colour on your hair. Put the towel on your arms, folding it under your shirt. Wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from getting dyed. Now, comb your hair, and you're ready!
The best way is to start from the back of your head, so move your hair to the front and start putting the dye carefully, first on the roots. Move forward to the front, and when reaching the front layers, put the dye evenly around your ears, fringe and all top parts. Now, spread the dye along all hair, using the rest of the mixture if necessary. Always check twice if the color covers every part of your hair.
That's it! All you need to do now is cover your hair with plastic foil / bag to protect smearing the color around you :) Now, wait the recommended time - usually 20 - 40 minutes. When finished, massage the hair again to spread the dye evenly, and start rinsing. When finished, wash your hair with shampoo, and use recommended conditioner (ideally one for dyed hair).
You're done, admire your new look, and work the magic!
DIY Fashion is becoming to be a very big trend in 2009 - from jazzing an old Tee, through customizing new Beannie to making a bag out of old pants! Is it something that ticks all the boxes in fashion? It is very good (and thrifty) way of making your style one in a kind, standing out in the crowd. You save time on looking around new edgy boutiques, and of course it gives you great pleasure and satisfaction in making your own "collection". But what about those who don't have time / skills / or simply (like me) cannot really be bothered? Is there a way around it - if you want to look original, but DIY is not something for you?
I think you can easily make your own style, by putting together different pieces / colours in new unusual way. I don't mean wearing all at once, but eg. wearing old cardi with some pins, and longer tee underneath, with some waist belt and unusual pattern scarf.
I love the current trend of clashing colours combinations: pink and orange, green and blue, purple and red - possibilities are endless, just don't go over the top, and stop at clashing max two colours at once ;)
School is back, yes we know, it's killer time for fashion imagination. Goodbye wild hair and make-up, it's time to face reality :) Does the School Fashion Rules really has to strangle you all the way? We dare to think not! We thought this classic number should do the trick and work as a perfect School Outfit - still holding Scene Emo attitude, mind you :)
Shopping for a Guy is quite an experience, what is the best - and safest - way to shop for Christmas Gifts? Ladies, please don't go for the easiest option on Earth - aftershave and hair gel, it's too popular, I mean he'll probably get it from a work mate :) I know, it's a challenge to find a decent Christmas Gift, which will make your guy a happy guy.
So what do guys (Emo guys we're talking about, right?) wear these days? Simple answer - they love Hoodies, the more the merrier.
Apparently Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy is the proud owner of over 300 Hoodies. The most popular designs are Black and White Striped or Black and Red Striped Hoodies. These are the most classic Men's Jackets, and they go with almost any outfit, jeans, t-shirts, hats, you name it! These Hoodies are easily matched with Striped T-shirts to a make great gift set.
Another great male design is Newspaper Hoodie - fantastic and eye-catching Jacket, very popular with more alternative likings. This Hoodie is lined with white soft fleece, which makes it and ideal Autumn Jacket. You can match it with Newspaper all over print Men's T-shirt or with classic Black and White Stripey Tee. Both sets look very uniuqe, and with high quality materials they are a perfect Christmas Gift!
How To Make The Most of Your Animal Print Skinnies?
You love Zebra and Leopard printed Skinny Jeans, right? Yes, well, so do we. They look great, and they make a great impact. I mean, you can't just not notice this kind of jeans! They look gorgeous, and that's true. But how to wear them to make the most of this amazing design?
The best way is to wear them with plain top, and plain shoes. Ideally black or grey. You could get away with red or purple as well, but only with White Zebra jeans, it would look actually very Scene Queen!
Don't experiment too much with Red Leopard Jeans, we beg! Wear them with plain black or white tee or hoodie, and plain shoes. If you go somewhere special (like a gig, or a show) you can wear them with black corset, and red accessories, it would look uber-cool, just don't over-do it, as you may be seen as goth.
Remember, do compliment these jeans, try to show them off. Avoid printed vans or other shoes, whey will just spoil the effect, go for simple things, like black flats, or vans, or some black boots.
Now accessories: the best way to compliment these skinny jeans is to wear matching accessories, like animal scarf, or bandana on your head, or some animal print bangles. Try to match the hair accessories with these jeans, they will go very well.
Have fun, and if you're not sure of some combination, ask your mates, what do they think, if this or that look works. Good luck :)
Audrey Kitching, Jac Vanek, Kikki Kannibal, they all look absolutely fantastic, no doubt about it. Now, with status of celebrity, these beautiful Scene Queens are ones to look up to. But where did they all start? We know it could have been Buzznet, MySpace or Bebo pages, socialising, adding celebrity friends and posting fantastic photos. Yes, they all take loads of photos of themselves. Don't they look proffessional? Yes, but this can be done at home too! Here we will give you few helpfull tips how to take great photos of yourself.
First of all, choose funky looking clothes, with strong colours and / or bold designs. The best design on offer at the moment is also one of Scene Queen's favourites - Pink Animal Print - Pink Leopard Hoodie or Pink Zebra Jacket. These Jackets are very flattering, look great on pictures and you can't get more Scene than that :)
Next, make-up, always put heavier make-up for photoshoots than you do everyday, as photos tend to blur the objects, and you want to bring out your eyes and flawless complexion, right? On great tips, how to do Scene Emo Make-Up, please see our guide - How To Do Emo Make-Up.
Now, the most important task, choose where to take your photos! The best light would be outdoors on a sunny day, ideally in the park, or local playground. If you prefer to take photos at home, choose a piece of white wall as a background. And try to avoid sockets and other wiring to get into your frame :) Now strike a pose and find the one that suits you best. Use digital camera, to know instantly how the photo looks like, and what to improve in your pose, how to put your head, arm etc. Look at Audrey and Jac's photos, how do they pose, smile, and remember, you'll get better with time :)
We all love dressing up, trying new things, creating new outfits. But how to choose something truly unique, something you can create and wear it in your own style?
First you need to know what kind of tops / jeans / shoes suits you best. There's no point in following strict trends, if the style doesn't suit you and you can be seen as a 'poser'. You must have at least one favourite item - eg. jeans, hoodie or a scarf. Ask your mates if this item suits you, you want to compliment your features - like great hair, beutiful skin or flat tummy. You want to dress like your mates, but find your own style and still look good, right?
Try to wear items that you know will look best on you, eg. if you have shorter legs, wear longer jeans and short tops; if your upper body is bit bigger then the bottom, try different colour combinations - darker top and brighter jeans. Always ask your friends what do they think of your current outfit etc.
Now, when you know what kind of items you're after, it's time to express your personality with a colour! Wear clothes that make you feel natural wearing them - don't make the clothes wear you!
