GIA Style Card: Living Dead Girl


Some critics say that blogging fashionists are mindless followers, wandering about in mobs and wailing on about the same trends as everyone else. A recent SLsecret postcard at Shopping Cart Disco brought this sentiment out, stating “Bloggers are like sheeps with no brains that just follow trends”. Where this may be an accurate statement for some, it is definitely not true for all.

In considering how to dress up for All Hallows Eve this year, I couldn’t ignore the zombie allegory. And the recent Zombiefest gave me the chance to get in touch with my undead side before the onset of All Hallows Eve.

Today’s style card is the fallen fashionista, once elegant and composed, now disheveled, having fallen victim to mob mentality and unoriginal thought. Her shambling gait, courtesy of Olive Juice, allowing her to follow the herd in constant search for what all Living Dead Girls crave: braaaaaaaaaaaaains.

Dear Fashionistas and Fashionistos: this Halloween one would hope that you would forgo a few accents of decorative flair and guard yourselves from the ravenous blood-lusting appetites of the ungodly undead with a firearm or two … and maybe a protective relic.

Happy Halloween.
