Do You Ever Look Back?



"Farm Maiden Hands"

Dress: Vintage (Buffalo Exchange). Sweater: Vintage (my mother's from ireland). Shoes: Vintage Doc Martens from Etsy. Tights: Target. Belt: Target. Sunglasses: Found in a box in my attic. Pins and Ring: Flea Market. Necklace: Gift from my kewl womyn friend Anna 

To start out this fine post on my kewl weblog I probably should explain my whereabouts. To keep it short, I am currently a junior in highschool which means I'm in a current state of "LOLOL WUT SOCIAL LYF HAHAAHAA SKEWL WERK.  APUSH ALL DAY LONG! COLLEGE. THINKIN BOUT KUTE HIGH SKEWL BOYZ BECAUSE I AM A HORMONAL MESS. TUMBLR."
ANYWAYZ. Latley I've been inspired by things other than fashion, this is partially because I was kind of disapointed by the designers I generally look up to. I would tell you there names but I'm a KEWL FASHUN BLOGGER WHO IZ 2 SCARED TO REVEAL HER OPINIONS CUZ MB I WON'T GET MORE "dope swag" from brands. Instead I've taken inspiration by music and "art". I've been on a really weird music kick latley: Lots of dream pop mixed with Neil Young  and Crazy Horse and Jefferson Airplane. This has made feel the need to dress like a really sassy rug. I've been really obsessed with paisley and very soft shapes.
The other day, to add to my ~fall vibes~ I got a 70's mom bob. Basically the best thing that has happened to my hair since I got my first pixie cut when I was 13
I've also been focusing a lot of energy in turning my room into an installation. I've mentioned before that I am by no means a conventional artist so instead I've been currating a space that is more of three dimensional representation of my aesthetic.

The main wall in my bedroom. The tapestry was made by my great great aunt when I was an infant. On the far left is my #dopeswag machete that I bought on my backpacking trip to SVG

Rookie Crown, picture of Georgia Jagger, Post Cards from various places and 5 EC

Hair Barrettes from a shop that sold really bad weaves in Port Elizabeth

More proof that Liz Lemmon is my soul sister. Marc Jacobs resort candle (I AM FASHUN). and a political paper doll book my friend got me for my 16th barfday

To the left is my zine collection. Book is Petit Laurosse from 1929 (when my great grandmother was finishing up college) Post Card from the angels of My Friend Gooo. I bought the camera for five dollars at a garage sale, it was made by Minolta.

GREAT POST!!!!! I'm kind of feeling the same way about fashion right now, like I picked up the fall fashion edition of Harper's Bazaar and it made me sad because I found everything kind of boring. You make me really tempted to cut my hair because yours looks so good!

HELLO. this post is everything. i think we are clearly undergoing a very Lindsay Lohan "i know who killed me" esque simultanneous style vibe phase, as well as life phase (spoiler alert: i am also a boy obsessed hormonal mess, but it's not as endearing because I am an old!) i can't wait to see more sassy rug dressing - mattie

love that trippy print.

i also love liz lemon. "tonight, the only but we speak of is the butt of the human ass" and "who's got two thumbs, speaks limited french and hasn't cried once today? this moi!" being my favorite 30 rock lines.
