PA Live! Blog of the Week: Fashion Vandals

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on the WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Watch this episode on the PA Live! site:

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Fashion Vandals (http://fashionvandals.com/). It's a sometimes dark, sometimes sexy, and always edgy fashion blog written by Marissa Phillips, a.k.a. Riss Vandal. From her "About" page:

Marissa Phillips aka Riss Vandal is a staff writer for Gothic Beauty Magazine , the creator of Strange Days jewelry, and cohost of The Phillips Family Fun Time radio show. Among many things, her heart ultimately belongs to punk and goth subcultures, loud and garish cosmetics, and mostly anything that comes from Japan.

Fashion Vandals definitely won't be to everyone's taste: the fashions presented are more Lady Gaga than Lady Diana. (Check out these awesome paper eyelashes!) Some of the Model of the Week shoots are a bit risqué, so you might want to keep that fan and smelling salts handy on your first visit.

Riss's blog isn't just about fashion. She presented a wonderful account of a Tea Party she had with friends at Sugar's Tearoom in Forty Fort, and another of a pilgrimage to Frazetta's Fantasy Costumes in East Stroudsburg.

To see what's cool and what's hot in the world of goth and punk fashion, or just to get a taste of the amazing variety of topics that people in Northeastern Pennsylvania blog about, be sure to check out Riss Vandal's Fashion Vandals!
