COLD SWEAT






Ann Demeulemeester triple-lace boots, gifted Obesity & Speed "Even Death Can Die" t-shirt, Topshop knee-highs & garter, Zara cutoffs, vintage 1970s silk blend kimono, vintage Balenciaga sunglasses, Alexandra Cassaniti money bag w/ fur tail, Antti Asplund Block mirrored cross pendant, gifted sterling skull ring by Alberto Juan, Margiela matte black brass ring & cuff, gifted eye tooth/hair earring by L.S.D..



Late-term pregnancy + record-breaking heat = cutoffs and t-shirts, so I apologize for the delay in posting! Since the MeineLiebe inventory is coming very impressively into fruition (I've also been ridiculously busy with this) and I want to get a few good new posts in before I deliver baby boy, I thought I'd share my ensemble today ... I'm particularly excited about the jewelry.




This massive (and dangerously heavy) sterling skull ring by Alberto Juan is a true masterpiece in both craftsmanship and design alike; inspired by post-punk street style of the early '90s (and according to designer Bruce Snell, not to be taken too seriously -- just a tough, quirky statement piece), Alberto Juan has once again managed to produce a must-have accessory for any statement sterling enthusiasts like myself. This ring, though monstrously heavy and somewhat macabre, has a certain whimsy I can't quite put my finger on. I will, however, be putting this ring on my finger like, every day. It also comes in a 14k gold-plated version (which is just as striking) and can be purchased at the Alberto Juan webshop.



I absolutely adore this powder-coated "diamond" brass cuff/ring set by Margiela; so quirky & simplistic in its design, yet so unmistakably Margiela.





This 70s kimono was given to me by my mother-in-law and is a heavily rotated piece in my wardrobe. I'm such a sucker for poly/silk blend 70s apparel. It has such a lovely cut and is so functional in both summer and winter ... I thought it complemented my much-loved Ann D triple-lace boots very well (I was going to opt for a pair of purple satin Proenza Schouler slingbacks w/ sculpted heels instead -- I've yet to style these on the blog -- but they were a little "too much" paired with the kimono).



Thanks so much to everyone for your continued support in this joyous (albeit very hectic!) time in my and my husband's life; I vow to continue updating as often as possible, before and after our son arrives! Much love & have a wonderful weekend &hearts

pretentious as hell and obviously having a ton'o'fun with bobby lieblings money which im sure he has a ton of. good to see the pentagram fans money is going to a good cause like funding your multimillion doller shoe collection. whatever at least your hot so hes getting something in return. it is beyond me why you get so much free jewllrey and clothes. you sure as shit dont deserve that awesome skull ring but whatever. have fun getting fat as hell after you give birth and disgusing your cellulite. maybe it can be a fat'n'fabulous blog,surely you can keep riding on your old mans coat tails and continue making money off this rieiculous website. all the best!!!!

ahh great outfit once again!

HEATHER said...

Hi Hallie it's so great to see that you appear so happy and well. I'm sure you and Bobby are so excited! Have you picked out a name for your son yet? I have to say you're the loveliest pregnant woman i've ever seen, so stylish and graceful. i'm sure you don't remember me but i introduced myself at the maryland deathfest (you must have been so proud of bobby for putting on sucb an amazzing performance and everyone is so happy Victor is back in the bannnnd!!) and we chatted for a bit after you got finished talking to who i think is your and your husbad's cameraman or tour manager. you and your friend with the short dark hair were getting food during your husband's set before heading back to the band's hotel room. people were snapping photos of you and I thought that was so weird and annoying for you, but you must be used to it. everyone I have spoken to who has met you has said you are so kind, engaging, and warm (contrary to all the BS people make up on the internet like you're the band wife from hell, lol. anyway, i was the short dark-haired tattooed girl with her boyfriend who was wearing a studded vest and pegged jeans. i told you what a huge fan of the blog I am and asked you where i could buy your leopard boots (I had no clue they are vintage, boohoo!). you were so sweet and looked amazing with your red drippy sunglasses, mermaid long hair, money bag, and those incredible leopard platform boots. I've emailed you about this before but maybe i emailed the wrong address because i never got a response. where did you get your Chanel silver boots with the clear heel and how much were they? Anyway let me know if you ever received the emails (I'm going to send another one right now to your business email or I can send them again via Facebook). Anyway keep up the amazing work on your beautiful site and I'm sending prayers your way for a safe delivery and all the happiness in the world..you your hubby and baby deserve it! :) :) :) STAY HEAVY & STAY CHIC!! ;)

Cool blog, but why continue tweeting to Mia Tyler like she cares? It ain't gonna work and it's obvious what you're doing.

FASHION SNAG said...

Sorry for the previous comment. Stay doing you, and make sure your little boy grows up on good tunes so he can sing like his dad. :)

Amanda said...

adore everything about this outfit and jealz you got that margiela ring!! you look so good :)

Bretta said...

To the anonymous haters- you don't know anything about Hallie & Bobby's relationship, so step off. Hallie doesn't need a dude to support herself, she's had mad cash for as long as I can remember. Part of it came from the fact that she used to work her ass off, so yeah, she deserves what she has now.

Secondly, Hallie actually does sort of know the Tyler family, so don't act like she's just trying to suck Mia's balls. Just because Hal chooses to share her fashion, and a tiny portion of her life, with the world does not mean that you know her whole life story.

In happier comments, Hallie, I LOVE YOU, still trying to think of something to make you, and I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well.

<3 <3

Wo0T, Hallie! You have amazing stamina to get all dressed up and take pictures being all pregnant in this heat! I know I'd be laying on the sofa all day in my undies with a cold drink by this point. That skull ring is the shizznit, I want one!

Jony said...

The dressing up I understand, but the sneaky peek of snatch?
What do I know?
I fail to understand the ironic humour of a pregnant lady wearing a even death can die t-shirt

harps said...

Walter Helena said...
