Tweety E on Emo Fashion

See a video of local teen talking about new fashion craze, Emo Fashion.

Tweety E on Emo Fashion


Emo - short for emotional fashion - is a cross between goth and punk. It's for fashionistas who wear their hearts on their sleeves. The makeup is really heavy, almost Charlie Chaplin-like. The clothes are skin tight and black with a splash of color.  Interesting, but not my look. High fashionwise: think of it as the bright colors of Betsey Johnson combined with black Yohji Yamamoto and MAC makeup.  But we think Emo fashion should be done on the cheap. Go vintage, vintage, vintage. I'm going to let 14-year-old burgeoning fashionista Tweety Elitou tell you more about it. Thanks Tweety! Her latest webisode of Young, Hip aned Chic, shot at Showroom 77, is a really good Emo primer. And maybe I'll write a story about it. Any Emo fashionistas out there? Is it a big look in Philadelphia?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
