top c/o youreyeslie, bones and things necklace, stray cat booth coin belt, thrifted most everything else
I guess I've got a thing for amateur-looking shredded clothing. Something very raw and defiant about it all. If I could rip all of my clothing up, even just a tiny little bit, I would. Unfortunately, I have to keep some level of professionalism to my wardrobe. That level is what I normally wear minus the rips and bras showing (too much). I am very fortunate to work in an environment that allows me to be myself and dress how I want. Where else would I wear all of these clothes I have? I can't imagine having a career in which I would be required to wear a uniform or abide by a strict dress code. Yuck! What is the point of buying clothes - for after work when you are at home vegging out on the couch? Maybe just weekends? I don't know, but it sounds horrible to me. If you like clothing as much as I do, I hope that someday in the future you land a career where you can dress as you please. And if you're doing that now, word.
Besides the cropped top, there are virtually only two other things that don't have a deliberate rip in them. The dangly gypsy belt that I got from Stray Cat Booth, a rad vintage shop with a plethora of 70s and 80s boho/southwestern clothing - love love love. SO many things from this store that I want to wear. And this sweet bison tooth necklace from Bones And Things. If I could have every piece in her collection, you bet I would take them. Her bone and crystal necklaces are too good.
How about these insanely long roots I have going on? Yeah, my natural light strawberry blonde is making its debut. I'm attempting to grow my hair color out...which isn't too far off from what my hair is colored now. So far I feel incredibly boring and lame. It's been years since my hair wasn't a fire engine red/hot pink/coral orange color. Cheers for boring au natural.
Per usual, I leave you with a song I am currently digging.
