ASTRONAUT SHORTS






thrifted cut up shorts, top c/o lune vintage, jeffrey campbell ankle boots, yumena melody skull necklace, asos cuff


The best time to go thrifting is during the month of October where the "costume" racks are full of goodies that I view as normal attire. These shorts, for example. Starting out as flared astronaut pants for a little kid, at least I assume a kid as they only reached mid-calf, I cut these textured duct tape looking suckers into shorts. Obviously I did a fantastic job, since at first (and in one of two of these photos) they were cut slightly uneven. I really do an amateur job when cutting up my clothing, honestly. Too impatient. Want to wear right meow. Anyhow, got some other awesome and cheap "costume" finds on top of the now astronaut shorts. I still do need to figure out a costume, though. Yikes. Off to enjoy this beautiful 75 degree weather! Bi-polar midwest, jeesh. Make up ya mind.

PS. What is your favorite fashion blog? I want something new and exciting to look at.
PPS. Pumpkin beer. That is all.

  11. your eyes look out of this world with that eye makeup. i ain't hatin', just jealous but i ain't makin' it obvi (except that i just stated it.. obvi.) ..

    I completely agree with this month being the best for the racks of clothing! I actually went to this trading post here in LA today and purchased this like alien bodysuit (long sleeve and crew neck), it's purple and shiny (almost mermaid-like), for $2!!! i'll be cutting the sleeves and making it a scoop neck. so so excited. I also agree that my regular outfit choices were placed in the 'Halloween costumes/accessories" racks. great!

    Here are some pretty babies you should take a look at in your spare time!
