Going, Going, Gone... (but not really)

There will be no posts on TatteredTights or The Style Whore as I've decided to retire them both. Not because I didn't love both of them and my readerships but because I've decided to move on to something bigger and better.

The Bitch in Black is my new adventure in blogging. The Style Whore was my first ever blog and TatteredTights was sort of a runoff to that, I've decided to do something new and more diverse as a whole. Although this blog will still feature style, makeup, music and film I plan to also discuss real-world events going on in the world and as I transgress to political journalism... I have a lot of opinions on those topics too.

My current tatteredtights tumblr will still remain active and you'll still find me at the same twitter account (@alixdaignault). 

I really hope you'll continue to follow me on The Bitch in Black because it's probably gonna be kickass.

Love you, mean it!

Happy Holidaze, bitches!

Merry Christmas (to those of you who partake in this fine holiday...)!

First thing I want to get off my chest... HOW FUCKING UNGRATEFUL HAVE KIDS BECOME THESE DAYS?! The first few posts I see on facebook today were complaints about not getting iphones or cars or materialistic bullshit, which I know as well as you, Christmas has become all about material items but as a kid (and as an adult) I would never complain if I didn't receive exactly what I wanted. I know my parents work damned hard to provide me the luxuries in life I have and could never imagine being such a brat to not appreciate at least the thought and effort gone into making me have a 'Merry Christmas'.

I've got a roof over my head, I've got food on my plate and ton of added luxuries in my life that I never take for granted. Some billion kids in this world just want a damn Christmas dinner...

Alright, now that my rant is out of the way. I got No!No! which I'm terribly excited to try and the money for my next tattoo, which I'm terribly excited to get - it's a memorial tattoo for my Papa who passed away last year and I'm booking the appointment as soon as I'm back in Vancouver.

My next piece; will be on the left side of my torso (rib cage)

In case you haven't already noticed, I'm back blogging @thestylewhxre so, don't forget to keep tabs on that.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holidays... and don't be a little brat ;)

Call me crazy, but I'm a girl who enjoys some porn. I'm also a girl who doesn't have a problem admitting I like porn. And I have to give credit to one of my favorite porn stars - Sasha Grey. Now, don't get me wrong - I know a lot of girls are sucked into the industry for all the wrong reasons... but if someone generally ENJOYS "acting" in porno films (or prostituting for that matter... ('Secret Diary of a Call Girl' anyone?) Then who the fuck is society to tell them they're wrong or 'damaged' or have daddy issues... granted I'm sure a good 95% of them DO have underlying issues but that's not always the case; nothing is strictly black and white. I mean, it's not personally MY thing but I support ANYONE who stands up for what they do as long as they're doing it for the right reasons (happiness, enjoyment, whatever)...

... I watched the episode she's talking about here and it was very biased; She may be a porn star/whore/skank whatever else name society might throw her way but it can't be denied the bitch has brains, however, she has since retired from the porn industry (I think she'll make a comeback like Jenna Jameson) and currently pursuing a number of different creative fields including mainstream acting, directing and photography.

She released the book NEU SEX as an insiders look at the industry. I haven't purchased or read it... and I haven't heard the best reviews on it either but the point I'm making is just because someone is in the industry doesn't always mean they are an uneducated, drug-addicted, hot-mess (Bobbi Starr, Asia Carrera; Sasha isn't the only one...) and you don't have to respect the industry to acknowledge that fact, like I said, nothing is strictly black or white.

'Fashion fades but style is eternal' - YSL

I'd like to say that I love 'fashion' but the truth is, I don't think that's true at all. I mean, to be quite frank, I don't really give a fuck what VOGUE declares 'in' or 'out'... I'll read VOGUE from time to time (especially the September issue) but call me crazy, it's time for Anna Wintour to move on - Grace Coddington has always been the real brains of that operation...

What I really love is style. Personal, individual style - where there's life and inspiration behind someones clothes, mannerisms and way of life. Anyone can follow the world of fashion inside and out, you can read every high fashion magazine, know every top designer and describe their every collections... all of that shit can be learned or taught. Style, on the other hand can never be learned, it's something one is born with or not... Anyone who has a raw, individual style and doesn't go by the books are some of the most inspiring people to me. A website I frequent often and have also written about on my former blog TheStyleWhore features a plethora of some of the most inspiring people (style and otherwise) that I have come across in a long time...

StyleLikeU Closet Interview with Margaux Lonnberg from StyleLikeU on Vimeo.

...Such as Margaux Lonnberg. I suggest checking out her blog (and watching the above video) for a solid dose of inspiration.

I also discovered my favorite jewelry designer Pamela Love via StyleLikeU. She designs the most amazing pieces of jewelry I have ever seen (which you can check out here The way she incorporates native american art and day of the dead into her pieces - how all of her personal jewelry has a meaning or story to it resonates so well with me, as I'm the same with my jewelry and personal/spiritual meanings...

Pamela Love via StyleLikeU.

I got my first finger tattoo (the ankh; upper middle finger on my right hand) after I saw Pamela's and loved how hers looked. I now fucking love my finger tattoo, I got it after a huge changing point in my life to cement/remind me of my spiritual growth and I plan for a few more.

All in all, fashion is great and fun but it's better to follow your instincts and wear what you feel comfortable in and suits you and your style... Yves Saint Laurent said it best...

'fuck you, bitches - you ugly bitches, you stupid bitches..'

Seriously, WOW. Is all I got to describe this girl... although compared to Kreayshawn (who I think is a dope chick, but should go more towards cinematography... there wasn't much after the 'Gucci Gucci' thing blew up) BUT this whole mix tape is SO FUCKING BOSS.

PU$$Y was the first track to hit mainstream with a catchy beat, mad raps and a sexy video to go along with it, I liked it - A LOT. A few weeks later the official IGNORANT ART mixtape was released and BOOM... that shit was on repeat. I initially fell in love with "You", which features Iggy rapping over a sample from "Crash Into Me" by Dave Matthews Band - this track also features YG. I was especially impressed because this track is so different from PU$$Y, being the first track I heard. 'Treasure Island' was probably my next favorite because it has such a dirty south rap feel to it, like I should be riding low smoking a blunt - this is a key track spark up to. 'Hello' the first actual track on the mixtape after the intro is more back to the feel of PU$$Y, but a lot more raw featuring Joe Moses - a badass track where Iggy tells/proves bitches whose boss... I'm not giving all the goods away so if you wanna hear a kickass white girl spit like mad, you'll download IGNORANT ART here.

Iggy Azalea hails from the land of Oz and is heavily influenced by the one and only 2Pac... and please, don't get me started on how fucking stunning/sexy/drop-dead-gorgeous this girl is. I mean, seriously...

Am I right? or Am I right? Yeeeah, now check out her PU$$Y...
