Fourteen going on Forties




Shoes- Crossroads, Skirt- Abercrombie and Fitch, Top- Boheme, Turban- Boheme


I do apologize,
I've worn the same shoes for two shoots in a row,   
can you guys still love me?

 Real definition of turban:
Turban- a kind of headwear based on cloth winding

My definition of turban:
Turban- THE LORD IN HAT FORM

I felt rather dashing in my 'get up', I must admit.  I think the second I put on my turban/headband/god/hat-thing I felt like I was Rosie the Riveter, 
fighting for womens' rights, 
 except I was doing absolutely nothing to fight for womens' rights.

I felt like I was back in the forties,
 and I think my playlist of classic 40's swing music influenced my dancing around on set 
whilst forcing my cat to dance with me

Until next week,

Keep swinging your skirts, 

And buy a turban ;)

Now you see me, now you don't







 Shoes- Cross Roads Trading Co., Sparkly shirt/skirt thrifted, Yellow skirt forever 21, Hawaiian shirt thrifted



Now you see me, now you don't.
I think my cat has real potential as a model.
I mean,
look at that fur.
Purrr.
Although I must admit she was doing anything but purring while we did the shoot.  She wasn't a big fan of my shirt.  It outshone her in a few shots.  Who knew it was possible?

Did I mention I'm insanely completely ultra excited? 
Every photographer/blogger/designer/wierdo needs a spot, if you know what I mean.
Somewhere to relax, sketch, full out nap, play with your divas/cats, and photograph yourself in some fun get-up.

I found mine.
The ivy covered fence of my front porch pairs perfectly with the antique (spray painted light blue from goodwill) chairs placed elegantly alongside the tree-branch-clippings that my mother has not had time to clean up.  I think it turned out rather ethereally, no?


Until the next burning hot summer day,

Flowers and Florals

 
Go outside. 
Talk to people.  Smell the roses.  Observe gardens. 
 
I know,
I know,
it's hard leaving your computer,
..and that half finished bag of Hot Cheetos.
 
But the air outside is finally warming up and you can feel the light breeze on your legs as you try to discreetly hold your skirt down and try not to stumble in your way-too-high-for-your-age heels.
 
Over the past few weeks I've been collecting several ideas for what my spring wardrobe will consist of.
 
I'm predicting that since florals were such a big spring 'thing' last year,
they probably won't circle back again.
So I thought, what is the opposite of soft, flowy florals?
 
Leather, hard lace, combat boots, velvet skirts, studs, beanies, platform sandals..
 
Who said punk rock couldn't be the bomb.com?

Stay Youthful


If you can still move like this at 88,
keep dancing.
 
We all appreciate it.

Owls with Cats Eyes


Doc Martens shoes, Justina's owl sweater and fabulous cat eye glasses, Forever21 shorts
 
 
Bandana's are like the bad boys of fashion,
along with
motorcycle jackets,
doc martens
and basically anything with fringe or sequins.
 
Now as you can see,
we're both wearing Docs.
 
Am I the only one mesmerized by the complete and total fabulous-ness of these shoes?
 
 
And please,
 
Tell me you all like sequins?

Still View





Shorts- guess/thrifted Shoes- mossimo/thrifted Shirt & belt- thrifted

I feel like the orange shoes and striped tee have a prison vibe, but taking photos with @abentpieceofwire was anything but a prison.

Well, we were shooting with wire..

But really. 
The shoot was so much fun.

What happens when two fabulous people meet?

You'll have to wait and see,
but I promise you,
it will be ultra-fabulous.

Much like my shoes.
Who needs friends when you have gorgeous orange wedges?
I mean, please, they even got their own post.
They're just that fabulous.

Do I say fabulous too much?

Yes, yes I do.
 

 

 
 



Psst.
 
Check me out on lookbook.

The Alphabet, but better




 
 
Shoes shoes shoes..
 
Who needs friends?!?!
 
Look at these shoes.
 
I want to marry them.
 
No, no I want to have a secret relationship with each pair.
 
I mean, kids saying 'A is for apple, B is for bird.."
 
Those kids are wrong. 
A is for artisan crafted wooden pumps,
B is for bedazzled stilettos,
C is for chunky heels..
 
 
Stuffed animals? Pshh, mine were shoes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

P.S.

Sorry for the size of the last two pictures, I don't know what's wrong with them..
