Green pants are the best pants, especially when they're vintage and very rare (I'm of course hoping you're also green with envy at this point). Since I'm corny and have no self control I took this chance to also put on as much of my green clothing as possible. Creating a fit that screams trendy grandma. Sweater, check. Comfortable shoes, check. 

Lets make "so grandma" the new "dad".

Monochrome is cool and all but I'm still on the saturated colors wave. Found this somewhat amazing yellow sweatshirt at the Goodwill near Fairfax a few days ago. Why spend $250 on a logo hoodie when you can spend $6 at the thrift store? Its not Supreme or Palace but it looks dope either way. The rest of the look (minus the boots) is also thrifted, the shorts from Goodwill as well and the flame bandanna from Iguana Vintage on Hollywood. 

Might just wear this or something similar to the GOLF show coming up in June. Super excited to see what Tyler, the Creator puts together for his first ever fashion show. Also cool to see an artist make this event available to the public instead of just for so called industry insiders. 

Till next time.

Frequent Fly, Never Trip









Rooftops are where I feel most comfortable. Being able to look at all the drama of the city from above makes me somehow feel at ease. Gorgeous views of skyscrapers and busy streets aren't so bad either! These shots are from one of these rooftop excursions a little while ago, this time on the bustling Broadway near the epicenter of downtown. 

As for the clothing of choice there's something about this psychedelic print sweater that just feels right. Its a little bit crazy and out there but in the best way possible (not to mention the comfiest fabric ever). Paired with my uber cheap thrift shop pleated skirt and collar I think it turned out pretty cool. So don't trip, its just fashion.

Bring back twinning.
Double the style means double the fun, and double the trouble.
So throw on that pleated skirt with your varsity jacket and form a girl gang.

Slits on skirts are all fun and games until you realize they don't exactly stay in place when you walk down the street....

Regardless of the difficulty of moving from point A to point B in this skirt I do admire its aesthetic appeal. And hey, the cashier at Urban Outfitters "liked my dress" so I guess its not altogether unappealing. Though I think I'll stick to my un-slitted pencil skirts for going to class and move this skirt to my "inside only occasions" closet section.

My trusty 1970's shirt however continues to work its way through my wardrobe in all its 100% non natural fabric glory. I wouldn't be mad at all if someone decided to gift me another psychedelic printed top for Christmas, or New Years, or say just a Friday night gift of friendship.

Happy Holidaze!

Oh and in case you wonder what I sometimes splurge on:

Doesn't it look dreamy?
Coffee at il caffe on Broadway is a personal favorite of mine now as the vibe of the cafe is very different from the Starbucks of the surrounding area (plus they have delicious french bread sandwiches). Expect to see well dressed women and men with beards frantically typing away at their Mac's.

Got a pair of high waisted black underwear and a pair in a lovely emerald color at Urban today, and I might have to somewhat blame this impulse buy on the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last night as there were some amazing black lace pieces on there that I would have loved to own.
