Dress: Vintage (My Grandmother's from the early 1960's) Top: Gifted. Jacket: My mom's closet (she bought it in the early 1990's) Bag: Vintage. Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell.
I'm back from my forced hiatus (in other words studying for my finals) Oh miserable me! How awful these last weeks have been n shit. I've pretty much had every last ounce of creative energy sucked out of me and that energy has been transfered to good ol' stress and being slightly more sarcastic than usual.
This is sort of what I wore to a birthday party last weekend (It was like 75 degrees out so I didn't wear the coat or the top)
The dress is sort of what this whole outfit is based around. It's a wearable heirloom, it was made for my grandmother for a family event back into the 60's. Wearing it is really cool, kind of like wearing deodorant to bed or listening to old Miles Kane LP's backwards. I think that because it was my grandmother's makes it a lot more valuable to me. It also kind of coincides with what my aesthetic has been like lately and what my interests have been. It's sort of a result of all of the Beach House I've been listening (beach house bb you are my dream pop royalty)
On another note it is now summer, which makes me *elated* and it makes me want 2 *vibe* to sum cool girl jonie mitchell songzzz "OH CACTUS TREE!" Summer has also kind of left me time to think. I'm currently working on a new super secret platform for Butch which revolves around body expression and more about up and coming designers. Which reminds me, if you want to submit something to issue three (which features an editorial staff!) submissions will be open in early August. The theme is Traditional Feminity (Rodarte, Dream Pop, Sophia Coppola films, Pin up girls, Cosmo, etc.)
Oh and p.s, I shaved the back of my head. I'd show a picture but I couldn't manage to take any that didn't look super grainy. Hopefully y'all will see it next timE!
That's all folks!
