Recently, I was looking through old pictures with my family and found this photo of my mom. I fell in love with her look here. It is effortless, but cool. Innocent, but wild. And I find it very funny that she is sitting on a trashcan. My mom told me that she had these vans custom made, they were baby blue and brown.
This outfit post is inspired by this photo: wearing my mom’s vintage 1950’s motorcycle jacket that she got in the 80’s, vintage Levis, and hightop Vans.
This week I have been listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers a lot, pretty much constantly. I love their new song “Dark Necessities.” “The darkness helps to sort the shine.”
I have an obsession with juxtapositions. I feel that we need a bit of trouble in our lives in order to sort out what is really good.
“I saw your face
Elegant and tired
Cut up from the chase
Still I so admired
Bloodshot your smile
Delicate and wild
Give me shewolf style
Rip right thru me”
– “Universally Speaking,” Red Hot Chili Peppers
“Give yourself a chance
To find a way
The holiness of play
Is here to stay
Tell your mom and dad, it’s all ok”
-“Dance, Dance, Dance,” Red Hot Chili Peppers
I got this new chained purse from Recess, a vintage clothing store on La Brea. I also love my leather Jacket pictured above from All Saints. Its kind of second skin to me now.
“Tell the world that I’m falling from the sky.”
