I pretty much made a costume instead of an outfit. I just had all these super 60s hippie things and I felt compelled to put them all together. It just made sense, is all. I've got three sponsors in this outfit, two of which are companies owned by some really nice ladies, so I encourage you to peruse at your leisure San Francisco-based Dolls Kill and Sweden-based Monekystore (I took the liberty of making that link go straight to a sweater I love). The Nine West boots were for a collab with Lookbook. I logged into Lookbook yesterday to post my look and these boots were repeating in the background. Boot, boot, boot. That boot is enjoying the limelight right now, let me tell you! It's like a little boot celebrity and all of it's boot friends from back home are kinda jealous and they sit around and quote Morrissey to one another, "It should have been me. It could have been me. Everybody knows! Everybody says so."
Also, everyone on Lookbook was using the word sexy to describe these pictures. That is a word that has never been used to describe my appearance. Usually I hear "androgynous", "funny", "weird", or just the sound "ehhhh..." Lesson? Ladies, wear denim underwear with knee-high boots and you will be hawwwwt. Instant babe magnet. The babes will, however, probably be gay men and straight girls, so I'm not sure how far it will get you romantically.
I am now going to leave you with some pretty pictures. The gal who runs the blog Ramble On was sweet and reposted my Kool Aid hair tutorial, so I stumbled on over to take a gander at her blog. It's all in Icelandic, so even Google Chrome's auto translate was kinda, "Wha?" but it has a lot of very pretty pictures, including these photos taken by a rad London-based lady photographer Saga Sig.
Did your brain explode from overwhelming AWESOMENESS?
