Thelma and Louise, Blair and Serena, Katy and Rihanna, Miley and Selena, and for your older siblings, Alicia and Liv in those Aerosmith videos. There’s a time-honored tradition to bad girls in pairs. This week, we ran the red light, went on a forbidden romp through the red light district (past our curfew, we know), and ended up grounded with a new tattoo (or two). Yes, breaking curfew is rarely a good thing. But if you’re going to push your luck and roam around after hours, do it with a lot of sense and a bit of style.
