Of Wednesday Afternoons and Cheese Pizza

So I lied, I didn't actually post anything when I was in LA. Whoops. I was only there for a short period of time and I was pretty busy. Anyway, this post is just some images that have been inspiring me lately. Kind of like a mismatched online mood board. Yeah, something like that.
All of these images are in the same aesthetic file in my brain though they may seem random to everyone else. They're mostly connected to my childhood and being in San Francisco when I was little and not worrying about anything because I was a kid and I didn't have to.

This show was everything

All the style goals forever

Also, I just discovered The Terrordactyls and I'm obsessed. The thing is I've been searching everywhere but they seem to have fallen off the face of the earth and I can't find anything posted/recorded/uploaded since around 2009. I'm a little heartbroken but nowhere does it say that they have officially broken up so I'm keepin hope alive.

The video is for their song 'Devices' which is my current favorite. Plus it fits perfectly with the visual aesthetic of this post. 
I will also be doing an outfit post soon that correlates with this post/these vibes/this train of thought. I would tell you exactly when but when I do that I always panic a little and then put it off for weeks. So I'll post it soon. Probably. 

Also, I meant to post this last time but I forgot. At Fashion Week after the Alexander Wang show I was hanging out outside waiting for my dad when a few photographers started taking pictures of me. I got to talking to one of them after and he gave me his card. He is a lovely person and has a great photography blog that I would highly recommend checking out. This is the post that I'm in and this is his blog. (In the photo I'm wearing a JewelMint necklace and a vintage DVF jumpsuit.)

Well it's 1 am so I am off to sleep. 
Catch you all later.

You May Call Me Your Majesty

Hi there, so this post is way late but school has been really busy and I was going to do it yesterday but ended up having some spontaneous adventures instead which I think was important. During the summer my whole life becomes a fairly spontaneous adventure but now that I'm back in school I can't wake up at noon and decide to ride my bike to the nearest graveyard and have a picnic everyday. (Which, needless to say is quite upsetting.) 
My whole life right now is very "classic high school experience" which part of me loves but the thing is I'm very aware of it all which makes it just that much more wonderful but also kind of terrible. At school I have a few friends and stuff but I still feel like very much of an outsider. I just don't understand  most people my age and why they do the things they do or say the things they say. I've always felt like this around people my own age but I thought it might be different when I got into high school. 

This outfit wasn't directly inspired by anything but when I got to school I was told I looked like a 60s housewife who's secretly in a gang which I loved. People seem to react more positively to when I wear "weird" stuff then they did in middle school which isn't actually super surprising but I kind of miss the ridiculous insults middle schoolers come up with. (I mean, Traffic Cone Granny Hooker? That one must have taken some serious brain power.) 
 The jacket was my dad's in high school and I'm absolutely in love with it.

 This is the part when I turned on Grimes really loud and had a dance party for one.

                                                    (Dancing queeeen young and sweet only fouuuurrrtteeennn) 
I will try to post this week but I don't know how busy I'll be with school. (It's hard because I commute so I have to wake up at 4:30 in the morning and get back around 5 or 6 in the evening.) but I fly out to LA on Thursday and will be there for a few days so I will post more then.


Jacket is vintage, dress was a gift, belt was thrifted, random tights, shoes are from Topshop and I made the hair clip
