H&M top // RVCA jeans // Chloe Susan boots // Fendi bag // vintage scarf // Natalia Brilli Nolex // Casio watch

I haven't found anything all that exciting at H&M in the last year in comparison to a few years back. It feels like the material has gotten cheaper and the design more American mainstream. I used to love finding simple cotton or linen (sometimes even leather) pieces in a weird shape or cut. You know, a Swedish design aesthetic you don't find in F21. But I feel like I've been bombarded with one too many "jeggings" and sparkly party "frocks" and "strong shoulder" everything. Plus now that I live on the other side of town, my boredom shopping has become far less frequent. Last week I did make a trip though, with the intention of buying some baby clothes for my bestie, but ended up getting totally sidetracked by this woven/fringe top. I'm guessing it's a dress, but a childhood of my mother forcing me to wear shorts under dresses, prohibits me from wearing any without something underneath, even to this very day. I got a size L (as I normally do) so I could wear it long and loose. The woven front bib is pretty substantial and doesn't feel at all like the cheaply made H&M stuff as of late. Score!

*****
You know what's also great? Coming home after a three hour drive from a long work week, to find two belated birthday packages from your bffs...

1. a suede studded cuff...
2. a print of a skeleton doing a kick flip!!! (note to self - get this framed immediately)

My friends know me too well.

♥♥♥♥♥ JLo and Stacks ♥♥♥♥♥

ps. still haven't figured out what to do with my hair. it's a god awful mess...

Who is the artist behind the kick flip skeleton print? It's fucking rad!

And I don't know I've been disappointed with H&M way too often.

I feel the exact same way about H&M. When I used to live in NY I felt so grateful to have access to their sometimes interesting pieces, but when they came to LA, I felt as if it wasn't the same. I've had friends tell me the clothes in the US market are far different from what their European stores carry.

But now that their clothes are so gnarly, don't you feel like you've hit the lotto when you find something worth wearing? I sure do!

You have such great friends. I love the print, it'll look so cool in a frame.

Rad print.. the jealousy ensues.

Maybe you could dye your tips and then cut them of when you get bored? Like Christeric just did? Just an idea..

I know how you feel about H&M nowadays. It's really quite disheartening.. Glad you found that rad top!
