now i can't wait for fall. so many good shoes to look forward to. well not so many so much as the ones i am looking forward to are sooooo good. with these and the opening ceremony wedges i think i'll be set.
remember that dream jacket i posted about a while back?
i know a bunch blogs/sites have covered the upcoming H&M fall line that's supposed to be super amazing, chock full of rad black pieces - yay! - but i happened upon one of the jackets in the line and was instantly struck with deja vu. looks eerily like my thrifted jacket. i mean it's not the same rad cut or silky smoov fabric, but the seamed diagnoal chevron stripes + ruching between the stripes....hmmmmmm......too much of a coincidence.
um FOR REAL? seriously?! those glasses?! WHAAAAAAT?! i can say with the utmost confidence to all other sunglasses : fuck you dude. fuck you. you lose. these win. go home.
i hope those go into production. i hope i can get my hands on a pair. please please pleeeeeease.
and i would like this wardrobe from Chanel Resort 2010. i can wear it now, put it away til i'm in my 70s, and be the cool old chick rocking vintage chanel.
1. love the overall look but i'm not generally that feminine so i'd probably switch up the shoes.
2. completely anti me, but hey, one of these days i might want to look like a gondola driver.
3. classic but with a twist. mini skirt and fringe flat sandals.
4. gold and black. one of my favorite combos.
5. love the pink tights. they make the outfit nice and sassy.
6. the classic chanel suit, with a twist. hopefully i'll have enough sense to button it up at 70.
I promise I will dress you in stuff like this, as long as you promise not to want to wear a Disney princess outfit for a month straight everywhere you go.
and i promise i'll try not to wear matching outfits, even if it is Hysteric Glamour.
Your Future Mom
i was introduced to the more technical side of apparel at a very early age. my grandma was a skilled seamstress and my mom was excellent at anything with her hands. they taught me how to use a sewing machine and knit crazy patterns in the third grade. i was a bit too impatient for it at that time and as i grew older i became more preoccupied with the surf and skate world, too much so to give up my precious time for sewing; i was fine with my vans and tees. i wasn't about to wear dresses, yeah right.
as i moved into high school, however, i wasn't finding what i was liking in stores in suburbia and had limited access to other neighborhoods, what with being 14 and license-less and all, so i resorted to vintage stores and crafting my own clothes. the only new clothes i found myself buying were skate brands. my TSA tee and Fuct tee were on rotation all through the week, but my all time favorite brand was Poot.
i was first introduced to Poot hanging out at our local skate shop in newport beach. a girls skate shop (what?!) opened up upstairs and thus my first ever job was born. that's right, my first job at 15 was at a girls skate shop - a haven, or i guess heaven, for girls like me who lived and breathed that world. Poot was the brand that influenced my youth the most, with messages of women's empowerment without all the gnarly bra-burning hardcore feminist vibe. it just told you that, hey, girls are rad and skateboarding is rad, and girls that love skateboarding are rad and that there was a little "society" of us. we weren't the pro-ho's just jocking the dudes, it was a world of girls that just loved the sport and loved being a part of that world. it went on from being a graphic tee brand, to having cut-n-sew pieces, to inspiring a zine that eventually became a (short-lived) glossy called Foxy. the only other zines i read were the local ones picked up at record shops and punk shows, but man, i read Foxy like it was my bible. i pretty much idolized Keva Marie, the founder of both Poot and Foxy, and Deanna Templeton (wife of Ed), who was the epitome of the down-to-earth skate/art chick that i aspired to be. Poot may not be around anymore, but it will always remain near and dear to my heart, as a part of my youth and as one of the seeds that helped me to grow into who i am today.
the iconic logo that i couldn't get enough of
i had this plastered EVERYWHERE. if not as a sticker, then painted on. i was gifted in the art of puffy painting logos.
