fuzzhead




Even $5 shorts found at a weird little shop in Santa Monica make it to my collection. I know a lot of bloggers out there love to show off their expensive designer threads, but sometimes a little thrifty nifty is just as great. And really, so many people spend all of their money on designer clothing that is completely and severely heinous. This of which is safe to assume has been done on their credit cards with already twenty thousand dollars of debt that foresees no zero balance in the future. It's good to splurge sometimes, I do it. But come on people, buy cheap also! Cheap isn't bad. In fact, you're probably going to hate the clothing you bought today when a year rolls on by, so why not spend a little time going through those packed racks at slightly-more-inexpensive stores. Slightly-less-expensive. Whatev'.

Got a give-away or two in the near future for my readers. You know, just more awesome stuff that I am into. Stay posted. Oh, can we please take a (fourminute) second and listen to this. Not typically into Portishead, but I can't get enough of this song.

Since the clothing is no-name, I am wearing Erin Wasson Low Luv triangle pendant, thrifted eagle belt,  La Dama cage ring, and other random jewelry.

  22. I like cheap stuff. I'm buying it all the time...
    If I like something I will try to get it and if it is really cheap - even better!
    But I'm not in the position to buy any Designer clothes, so for some people my "expensive" would be cheap... That's how it is.
    And actually I like blogs more that show cheap or vintage clothes, than the blogs with lots of Designer stuff... If I want to see Designer dresses, I can look at celebrities, I don't need blogs for that.
    So thank you for this post! I love the shorts, I would have bought them, too!!!

  28. adorable shorts!
    I didn't use any programs for those photos-- they were shot with a pentax k1000 using kodak portra NC film and then the prints were scanned. It's just the beauty of the film that does all the work!
    I do use photoshop CS5 from time to time to crop or change levels, but film I usually just leave as is.
