 moon tee c/o lune vintage, thrift and diy shorts, jeffrey campbell boots, kimono from my sister, thrifted bag, thrifted belt

I'm experiencing writer's block and I don't really feel like vomiting insignificant words into this post. Instead I would love for all you ladies to answer a few questions. I appreciate any and all feedback!

If asked why you dress the way you do, what is your answer? Not just "because I like it", please. What are you wanting to portray?

Do you dress in hopes of attracting the opposite sex?

If the way you choose to dress doesn't "flatter your body type" in a way the mainstream opposite sex would deem attractive, would you say you dress to impress women instead? If so, why?
Do you believe dressing in similar fashion can derive new friendships amongst similar people?  
Do you look up to other women because of how they dress? Do you form opinions about other females based on their style?

If you are a fellow fashion blogger I would imagine that you'd be lying if you say you don't dress to impress. You want people to see what you are wearing. You are proud of it, otherwise you would not be excited to post pictures. You want to be a source of inspiration and be inspired. Am I right?

Otherwise, ask me anything on my Formspring. I'm bad about responding to blog questions on this thing, mostly because I assume my answers won't be seen by the person inquiring.

DIY vest, shorts, and top - thrifted boots, belt and bag - ebay bootstraps 

The exposure in this photo group is completely blasted - whoops! Too much sun, too little looking at the settings on the camera?

Here I am riddled in a bunch of DIY junk. When I am not lazy, generally I am the polar opposite. I become a cracked-out motivated weirdo who ends up bleaching and cutting everything, and sometimes even a little sewing happens here and there. This motivation usually only has the lifespan of a couple hours, so I hustle like crazy to get procrastinated work done. We will start with this vest. Thrifted, obviously. I tied it up, threw some bleach on it, and ironed this freaking awesome sun to the back of it. Paired with the bleach, it kinda makes the entire backside look like a summer day, doesn't it? AND GOD KNOWS I LOVE SUMMER DAYS.  The shorts were old and annoying, so I shredded and dyed them a little. Same with the shirt.

Part of me wants to apologize for boring you with shorts non-stop, but I really can't help it. Shorts are me. Guess you've just got to deal with it, folks.

Also, besides using gift cards, I have only bought thrifted clothing for almost 2 whole months now! Whoohoo. Go me. 
PS. It kind of blows. I WANT TO SHOP. 

PPS. I forgot to put a link in my sidebar, but for those of you that have Lookbook - I am trying to use it more. MY LOOKBOOK. I need more interesting people to fan.

cactus bag from ebay, etched bracelets from namibia, thrifted and diy cut off shorts, thrifted vest from a friend, ebay boots, unearthen pendulum necklace, ebay geometric necklace, melrose trading post vile necklace

I could not be itching to be back in the desert any freaking more. Is it transparent? I got this cheeseball cactus bag and geometric abalone necklace on ebay recently. My search entries for the one of the days were as follows: "palm tree bag", "cactus bag", "joshua tree shirt", "desert scene shirts", "desert purse", "snake in desert clothes", "canyon shirts", "sedona t-shirt", "arizona patches", "sun patches" and so on. I think I have a problem. Anyway, I ended up with this bag that I imagine a visor-wearing 60 year old woman with a smokers voice,  who goes to Arizona for the Winter with her third husband likely was my rival bidder. She was probably pretty cool. Like the grandma in Napoleon Dynamite, she undoubtedly owns a llama and likes to go out with her old lady friends to gamble and flirt.  

AND THIS VEST. Oh, this vest. My coworker bought it for me at a thrift store and I had left it at work for the longest time until I was digging through my junk yesterday. Thank god I found it. I feel like I should probably own a magic lamp with this thing on. Genie, where are you? My three wishes would involve the desert (duh), lots of enchiladas, and fish scales.

PS. Pretty sure Stick got a hold of some DMT or something.



I don't know about you, but I would rock weed print leggings and neon with beanies all day er day after seeing this collection.

Their disposition ain't too shabby either.

thrifted snake top, thrifted boots, thrifted & diy shorts, etsy belt, pyramid quartz ring c/o rejoice the hands, blue necklace and bag from melrose trading post, abalone shell rings from ebay, scorpio shell necklace from euphoria, ebay boot straps

It's late and I am delusional. That means this post will be short and simple. I got these boots at a thrift store but didn't care to wear them because they were boring. In my mind I was going to make my own boot harnesses to de-borify, but then I was hyped to see cheap bootstraps from ebay on Brit's blog. Obviously I went ahead and got my own. I had been looking in all the wrong places where motorcycle boot straps are $70+. DUH, CASEY. EBAY. So now I am a copycat and also have ebay strappies. 

It was almost too hot to wear this sheer top, but I powered through it. The past couple weeks it's been 80 degrees during the day and in the 70's at night and I couldn't be more stoked. Now if only I had desert. And beach. Then I'd be one exorbitantly happy freckleface.

Ignore my amazing, not embarrassing nails. I am a HEAVY nail biter and clients don't really appreciate it. Fake nails are my only cure. Just look at The Stick.


 top and cardigan c/o crash and burn, thrifted tie dye shorts and vest, boots from ebay, my salvation quill earrings, random jewelry

Now that I've discovered light leaks, I foresee it being very difficult to go back to normal-like photos.  SORRY.  I completely botched each photo with these colorful euphoric orb lights, placing them in areas where they clearly do not belong. But seriously, everything looks way cooler with a rainbow ghost light in the photo. I mean, REALLY. Hopefully some of you are on some serious psychedelic drugs when looking at my blog so maybe you can appreciate these prisms gone awry. 

I was told I should get a Formspring account. I just made one HERE.  I used to have an account long ago, but have forgotten my information and was turned off by people I know asking dumb questions like "if you had to drink anyone's pee, would it be mine?" Yeah, I gave up. So, if you have any Q's, holla holla. If not, totally rad too. I am not sure what I would want to ask me. Maybe what I ate today? I love talking about food that I ate.
