  • The Good,Bad & Ugly Of Chanel Spring 1994 Runway Collection
    Chanel for some purveyors of fashion can be a loaded six-letter word. Equally lauded and loathed, that double C mirrored emblem like it or leave it has stood the test of time. Chanel was founded in 1910 as a fashion house, one hundred and ten this year. Today let’s delve into the pretty and some
  • How To Stay Stylish In Montreal By Shopping Local
    Every-time I move to a new city I always need to re-build my wardrobe. I tend to acquire a lot of clothes when I live in one place for an extended period of time. I’m a reformed clothes hoarder and I’ve learned the hard way by thousands of wasted dollars to no longer buy things

  • Tom Ford At His Best
    In last week’s post, I ripped the new Tom Ford 2020 collection to shreds. Deservedly so mind you. However, the reason I was able to rip that collection to shreds is that I’ve been around long enough to remember when Tom Ford was great. From when he was at the helm of Gucci and turned
  • Tom Ford Has Failed Us All With His New York Fashion Week 2020 Collection

  • Emmy’s 2020 Are Boring But, Let’s Focus On The Best In Black Fashion
    If your anything like me both the concept of celebrity and celebrity culture nauseates you. The Hollywood machine is simply a copy/paste version of high school lunchroom schematics exploited into adulthood then turned into 3 hour-long award shows televised. However, I will say the only thing about celebrities that stimulate me is how they dress.
  • Once Upon A Time In Quebec City…
    Hello loyal readers, let’s take a trip 3 1/2 hours east of Montreal this week to a place called Quebec City. I recently spent 3 days/nights there for my 36th Birthday. Last year I was couchsurfing in Hollywood. It’s not a place I would have ever seen myself going out of my way to go

  • Lost Highway & The Fine Art of David Lynch
    Hello loyal readers, let’s talk about music this week. Most specifically my music you probably know absolutely nothing about. Last Summer I released my first album called “Screw You”. A few weeks ago I released my first music video off that album titled “Socket Screw” and then I go so wrapped up in other things I forgot to
  • Consumerism Is Killing Us Quicker Than The Coronavirus
    Hello loyal readers. Instead of feeding into the main topic of Coronoavirus ( which if we’re being honest no one knows anything about) on everyone’s minds I want to pivot into a deeper disease of our mindsets. Consumerism, and why it’s become a detriment to our society. Currently we see people panic buying as though
  • Medical Tourism In Tijuana, Anti-Aging & Beauty Secrets
    Hello loyal readers. I took last week off to gather enough content to bring you an in-depth beauty article. To me beauty and self-care go hand in hand. When you’re taking care of yourself you automatically feel more beautiful. Beauty is only skin deep so it’s equally important to do the inner work on oneself.
  • The 2000’s: The Worst Decade For Fashion
    Hello loyal readers. I was going through the decades of fashion recently in a Goggle search and stumbled upon the 2000’s. One decade I lived through as a very young adult. The 2000’s for me was age 16-26. In Pop culture Sex tapes where in high demand, Paris Hilton ruled the LA party scene, and

    Hello loyal readers. Let’s get into 2 of my favorite stops I made on my recent trip to Mexico City today. One was Frida Kahlo’s house converted into a Museum.

  • Embracing Femininity & Living A More Erotic Lifestyle
    Hello loyal readers! This week I want to dig my heels into a topic I don’t see being discussed enough. Femininity and even more specifically Erotica. Both topics I am very well versed in due to the fact that a. I’m female and b. I  was a traveling Fetish model which educated me on everything

  • Why Getting Drunk On Vacation Sucks
    Hello loyal readers, I’m on route to Mexico City this week and thought this was a perfect time to talk about drinking on vacation. Or rather, not drinking to excess on vacation. I was going to debunk some fashion trends this week for 2020 but this is far more relevant in this moment. In short I’ve been
  • How To Deal With Street Harassment In Style
    Happy New Year loyal readers. 2020 is here and this marks the first post of the new year. Unfortunately, just because the year changes doesn’t mean anything is changing. That’s why I want to get into a really sore subject for women. Street Harassment. It’s not acceptable, I want to see this type of targeting
  • My Top Archived Looks From 2019
    Hello loyal readers and happy almost New Year. I’m not big on celebrating the end of the year because it’s usually cold at night and I don’t care about holidays. As previously discussed in greater detail from last weeks post. I think part of this destine comes from me working age 18-21 in retail stores
  • Style Stories: A Canadian Expat In The Corrupt Country Of Mexico
    Heavy enough title for you? One thing I’ve learned since living in Mexico as an expat.. Never… trust.. a Mexican in Mexico. This is not based on race this is purely based on culture and mindset. Women especially are targets for street harassment, assault, and femicides here. Things I cover heavily weekly on The Metal
  • Adventures In A $20 Motel Room In Mexico
    Hello loyal readers and thank you for being patient in waiting for this new post. I’ve never taken 2 weeks off from writing since Metal Mouth Style started last year.

  • How Climate Change Will Change Your Life & Your Style
    In the last Metal Mouth Style post we discussed what it was like living though fire season. Which is officially the fifth season of the West Coast.

  • Staying Sane & In Style During A Sinister Fire Season
    Since the last Metal Mouth Style post Baja California Norte has had insanely high temperatures and endured its worst state fires in history. Over this past weekend there where over 160 fires in my area. The nearest being only a 10 minute drive south of me in Playas De Rosarito. The highway that connects my area

    As you are well aware of by now if you have been following Metal Mouth Style lately I have a new puppy named California. She is 5 months old and I’ve had her for about a month and half. She’s my first dog as an adult. I had one dog as a teenager named Pogo.
  • Where To Go High & Low In Tijuana On A Budget
    The last time I went out in Tijuana was back in July. You can read about what a total shit show that turned into here. Hence the reason for me not going out again since that time. It’s become normal for me that the place I currently live in I cannot socialize in. It’s safer
  • Being Black In Mexico…How To Rise Above It’s Racism
    I have been dreading writing this blog today but I feel it’s important to get this perspective out there.

  • All Rescue Dogs Go To Heaven… And To A Dive Bar
    This past week since the last post has been pretty insane. My workload has tripled and my pets have doubled. I am now happy to say I am the proud owner of a dog! I rescued a puppy here in Tijuana last Friday and now my life is forever changed. Here’s what we’re getting into
  • The Pasadena Daydream Festival.. Turned Into My Fucking Nightmare
    I’m back at my home in Tijuana writing about my recent trip back to LA today. I left on Aug.31st for the Pasadena Daydream Festival and returned Sept.3rd. Now that I’m decompressed and back on my work out/work mode schedule I can really dig in and give you the best reviews of this 4 day
  • How to Live Without Water For 4 Days.. In Tijuana
    Another week another fucking adventure. This time it’s much more of a misadventure. Tijuana is where I have resided for the past 2 years. Previous to that I lived in Los Angeles and before that Toronto (and before that a whole lot of other places). Tijuana bar none is the most difficult place I have

  • The Best Way To Go From Day Drinking To Fine Dining In San Diego Solo!
    Last Thursday I had a really incredible day date out on the town of San Diego. My day date was with myself. (Date yourself! more on that at the end of the post) Which then turned into a full on night out which was unexpectedly awesome. You can never chase the dragon when your going
  • Tijuana’s #1 Dive Bar & A Disco Dress Horror Story
    I can officially say I’m over the nightlife in Tijuana. However, I don’t have all bad things to say about it. I want to put some shine on the last standing proper dive bar in Tijuana in today’s post. A diamond in a whole lot of rough. If you must go out in Tijuana at

  • Travelling On A Tight Budget & How Bitcoin Is Saved My Funds
    Since I left LA a year and a half ago there’s always some major roadblock that gets in my way every time I try to plan a trip back there. It’s only 3 hours away from Tijuana but it feels like 30 every time I try to plan a return. My last trip to LA
  • How to Dress for a Lunch Date in San Diego

  • How to Make Manga Style Timeless and Elegant Vs Cosplay
    Regality! This is a new word that I am inputting into the style dictionary. Yes, I know the term Regalia already exists. However regality is being regal in your current state of consciousness, dress and in reality. It’s not about being the best it’s about being the best version of your god damn self in
  • A Big Bold Textured Dress & A Border Crossing Story
    As of late I’ve been spending a lot more time in San Diego despite living in Tijuana. I’m going to dig deeper into what that means for me today. It’s quite honestly the only thing keeping me sane as I round out my last 6 months left in the most violent city in the world.
  • The Blondes Inspired Outfits for Less
    Today we’re going to have fun making runway looks street street style at a quarter of the price. All while paying homage to one of my favorite duo’s in fashion design. The Blonds out of NYC. I saw their show several months ago on Youtube and died a little bit inside in the best way
  • I Miss New Wave.. A Goth Girl Club Kid Memoir
    Living in this part of Mexico one of the most lacking things is finding entertainment. Especially alternative entertainment. Baja California Norte is not a hotbed for culture only tourism. Not a lot of acts tour through this part of Mexico. Be it the ever increasing homicide rate or the fact that there’s just not enough
  • Sade Inspired Outfit Meets Pulp Fiction
    Wow! That titles a mouthful but it’s true! I pull inspiration from a lot of things, places, and people for my looks and today encompasses all three. Here’s the breakdown of the 3 points of interest and how it pertains to today’s look in particular. Thing – The Movie Pulp Fiction (My favorite) Place –
  • Once Upon A Time In A Mexican Shithole…
    One day Tijuana will be a distant memory for me. I’ll remember how I used to walk the streets of this town feeling isolated and totally alone. I’ll remember the streets and sidewalks full of man holes that could quite possibly kill you if your not watching your every step. The smell of feces that
  • How to Dress for Church as an Agnostic Woman
    Recently in Tijuana I met these two young Missionary girls here from the U.S. It was while shopping at one of my favorite little vintage boutique’s where I source a lot of my looks from called Creations of Lily. The boutique is an extension of an orphanage that is attached to the same building. All
  • How to Style a White Power Suit?
    We live in dangerous times for one’s mindset in 2019. Physically we’re at the lowest level of overall violence we have been at in human history (despite what the news would like you to believe). However, mentally there is a full on war of the minds going on. One of the hottest subjects of the
  • Styling Sequins & Sneakers
    For the longest time I’ve felt that you can only wear your sequins at night. Sequins are seen more as evening wear by most but not all. Yet as a textile they shine much brighter in the day so why must they be designated as evening wear or for special events? Today I wanted to
  • Moroccan Inspired Clothing Style Minus the Travel
    I’m currently standing outside of an i-Hop in Tijuana thinking what a damn shame Morocco is. I know. Random. This blazer is from Zara Morocco which has me thinking more about the place itself this week. It reminds me how classic & beautiful the prints are that come out of that region of the world.
  • How to Stay Desert Chic in Baja California Despite the Season
    It’s that time of year again. That time of year when all the main-streamers leave the city and go to Coachella to see overly hyped pop acts, people you have never heard with some hip hop sprinkled on top play music in the desert. Yippeeeee Nothing about this festival has ever appealed to me. Even
  • How to Style Stripes : Horizontal and Vertical Line Inspiration
    When it comes to personal style one of the best things to do is disregard the vast majority of the fashion do’s and don’ts you see in magazines or hear from those before you. What I love about our current era is that you can really do your own thing now. Which is why this
  • How To Wear Your BDSM Harness As A Layer of Clothing
    This week I’m drawing some inspiration from BDSM culture but not at all in a 50 Shades of Grey way. Also, one of the worst takes on BDSM I’ve ever seen in my life. Honestly, could that franchise have been any more diluted, predictable and utterly generic? Some girl constantly biting her bottom lip and
  • Vintage Perry Ellis Outift Inspired by the 1980’s & 1990’s
    When I was 14 I remember getting gifted my first perfume for Christmas. It was Perry Ellis. Today I wanted to take a piece of how the scent turned me onto their menswear line and how the 80’s was not all bad when it came to fashion because of Perry Ellis. It just mostly was
  • Soaked in Red & How To Wear XL Band Tees As Petite Women
    I was so excited to style this look today simply because I love the band Deftones and love pulling inspiration from music. I also wanted to show petite people how to wear larger sizes yet still have them be fitted to your shape and proportions. This way when you see things you love but are
  • I’m In A Blue Velvet State of Mind
    I re-watched one of my all time David Lynch films last night “Blue Velvet” from 1986. It’s so dark yet beautiful and even glamorous at the same time. I absolutely love the distinction between it’s title and the subject matter portrayed throughout the film. Velvet as a textile itself is incredibly soft yet when you
  • In My Mind I’m On A Picnic & Why You Should Mix Prints More Often
    In my first blog post for Metal Mouth Style I wrote about Gingham being a print that I loved to incorporate into my wardrobe. I also somehow managed to parlay my love of 90’s pornstars into that same post. I recommend the read if your new to the blog. Today I want to show you
  • Let’s Talk About Menswear… And Why It’s Not Just for Men
    If you read last weeks Metal Mouth Style blog post you may remember me mentioning a style hack for less by shopping in the juniors section if your petite. This weeks style hack is why you should implore yourself to shop in the men’s section more often than not if your women. Where else do
  • Make the Meat Market Your Runway
    There is one thing I do not do in life. That one thing is to make excuses not to dress up and look my best everyday. Even around the house (more on that style hack later). The key to feeling good is also looking your best. Inside out baby. Quite frankly a trip to the
  • A Clockwork Orange Chic
    This week I have been inspired by a movie I do not particularly enjoy. This movie has always thoroughly creeped me out. It’s not that it is a bad movie but it’s a good movie based on truly bad people. A Clockwork Orange. Not only is this costume concept played out year after year every
  • Modern Goth vs. Hot Pocket Goths
    There is something about the Hot Topic look that really bothers me. Disposable fashion trends in general I cannot get behind. In one day out the next. Fashion needs to be more sustainable. Not just in how it’s produced either. In how you as the consumer think before you buy. If you buy an item it should
  • Adulting With Sailor Moon In Mexico
    With Cosplay being such a popular theme I wanted to take some inspiration from the world of Anime this week. However, I wanted to make it adult. Not something I see done very often. Feminine, while being a grown up at the same time. A tiny hint of Lolita while not over sexualize one’s self.
  • The Not So Literal Matrix
    It’s cold this winter in Tijuana. Colder than I’ve ever experienced since leaving Canada 3 years ago! Okay, not as cold as Canada but unseasonably cold for West Coast Baja California weather. Which is why I’m taking the opportunity this week to channel my inner Matrix but not quite so literally. If by some grand
  • My Mexican Poncho Style
    I will preface this with saying the local fashion scene here in Tijuana leaves much to be desired. Mostly because most people here don’t have good taste or personal style which works out as a win for me personally. Why? Well, if people where real purveyors of style all these killer deals I find here
  • Lost Angeles Flashback Friday Files
    This has been quite an eventful week. I traveled back to LA for the first time since I moved to Tijuana over a year ago. LA used to be everything to me. It was my main source of inspiration for fashion, music and art. Since moving away it no longer holds that same appeal. I
  • To Maine With Love From Tijuana
    I often like style to be inspired by places and sub cultures within those places. Some places I have never even been too (yet) but always wanted to visit. Today’s look is inspired by all things Maine. Semi Nautical meets cool ocean air. If I was in Maine in winter this would be one of
  • Styling a 1970s Pornstar Inspired Style
    Finally! I got to pull out my 70s porn star vest. I’ve been looking forward to styling this piece since I found it vintage shopping at the end of last Summer. My look this week is heavily inspired by the character Candy in the series The Deuce. She is played by Maggie Gyllenhaal. This is
  • Romy, Michele & Me
    This week I pulled some inspiration from two of my favorite female characters in a comedy. Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion. This movie was the epitome of short skirts, crop tops, long legs, faux fur & platform heels. It rivals Clueless for those obsessed with 90’s fashion. This look was all about making it
  • 90’s Pleather & Sweater Weather
    Thicker fabrics are such a staple when the temperature drops below 20 in the desert that is Baja California. Another thing that has become more frequent is pretty insane climate changes at a rapid pace. This week for example we had wicked winds up to 20mph in my area and torrential rain storms simultaneously. With
  • Leopard, Leather & Easy Rider…
    This week I didn’t actually pull direct inspiration for my look from any one place in particular. More of an anti inspirational look if you will. I just really wanted to blend Leopard print and Leather together and make that look seamless. In this case faux leather that looks really fucking real. Okay so I
  • Channeling My Digital Librarian..
    The Library is open! I finally get to say that in the correct context after years of binge watching RuPaul’s Drag Race. This week I pulled inspiration from one of the simplest places. Libraries. I used to spend a lot of time in them in the early 2000’s before I bought my first Laptop. Leaving
  • Leather & Lilies Suit Me Just Fine
    Okay, not exactly Lilies to be precise. Those are actually Orchid’s on my button down blouse. It sounded better to say Leather and Lilies. I also really thought they where Lilies until I did some further re-search. This look fucking ruled my week. I was inspired by the rawness of nature when styling it. Whenever
  • True Blood Anyone?
    I’m a huge True Blood fan. I’ve been waiting for the right moment to put together a goth day look inspired by Pam of that series. She was bar none my absolute favorite character in that series. Although the final 2 Seasons of True Blood turned into a bit of a convoluted mess the first
  • In The Gingham Gang
    Yay! New week new outfit new blog! This week I was most stoked on this Gingham dress look I put together. Simple yet ultra feminine. Just the right amount of sweet to my sour. The inspiration this week was a combination of Audrey Hepburn in the 60s. This is one of my favorite looks of
