This is my favorite post in a while! This is just one of those outfits in which I pretty much live. Brit once said that she doesn't feel like herself unless she's in a ripped-up tee shirt. That really resonated with me. I really feel like myself in this, I guess. Also, I've been wanting to take pictures out on our fire escape for a while, and this was the first time we actually did it. You can't even see how awesome the view really is!
In the spirit of this rad Van Halen t-shirt, here is the best music video of all time:
Also, I know a lot of LA blogging ladies have been getting some flak lately for our bootie shorts. What can I tell ya? It's 100 degrees 'round these parts. I don't even have air conditioning in my car or my house. Yeah, I live in a pile of sweat, pretty much. Dudes just walk around shirtless all the time. If only we had the same luxury! Let me tell you, it has taken me a long time to be okay with my body, so nobody is going to stop me from wearing anything I please to beat the heat.
Sorry that I don't hate my body enough to wear weather-inappropriate clothing in an effort to conceal it. Maybe you should try shaming girls into modesty by pointing out the unsightly horrors of actual uncovered skin? Oh wait, mainstream media already has that angle covered.
EDIT: Can we all agree that I just made a pretty sick burn?
EDIT EDIT: If I go long enough without dying my roots, maybe my hair will eventually start to look dip-dyed.

EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT: James Rowland Shop caught me gushing over them like a crazy fangirl (busted) and were gracious enough to come onboard as my newest sponsor! Check out their shop if you haven't already -- the BEST vintage shoes and purses. I think Brit actually stopped breathing for a moment when she saw these shoes. They are so her, aren't they?
