Ditched

Slip/ SUn Thrift, Jacket/ Rokit, Shoes/ UNIF

$up,
This is the last picture from my shoot with Tish Jarrett. I think these are my favorite. I really like the light bleed. I love those kinds of things in pictures, but of course they always look better when your not expecting it to happen.

I got this jacket at Rokit, in shorditch. I really do like that store, but sometimes I wonder how much of the stuff is actually vintage. On sunday a friend and I went into a "Vintage" shop and I swear that they were trying to sell fake vintage at vintage prices. I could tell by the material that was used to make the garment. Frustrating. This slip (that you can hardly see) is from Sun Thrift. For a while I was really into slips, and wearing them as a dress. I think that kind of stuff is really cool because its supposed to be your underwear and your kind of fighting the power and wearing them outside without anything over it. I don't think its such a big deal anymore as it would have been if you did it in the 50s or 60s, but I kind of wish it was. I love shocking clothing. These shoes are my favorite. If you have been a fan of my blog for a while you have seen me post about wanting these shoes for practically all of 2013. I got them for christmas, and I do wear them a lot, but I never get pictures of it. NOW I HAVE SOME!

Skirt/ Sun Thrift, Shirt/ Sun Thrift, Shoes/ UNIF

$up,
How awesome is this skirt. I have worn it before for my blog, so it may look a bit familiar. I love it. It reminds me of a bad 90s screen saver for a computer. I love shit like that, I think it's funny. I found this and my top at Sun Thrift. I was really lucky to find this shirt. It was for a rather large person, I think, so I took it in and now its a cute little crop top. The shoes are UNIF and definitely one of my favorites. This picture was also shot by the lovely Tish Jarrett, who shot the pictures in the last post. This was probably the portion that reeked the most of piss, but I don't really think my face conveys how bad it smelled.

Moronic

One Piece/ Omaya Vintage, Shoes/ UNIF

$up,
I had my hand in on Monday, so this week has been super lax and boring. I am supposed to write an essay on the history of skate culture as a sub-culture, but I am really at a loss on how to start it. I'll take a couple more days to think about it I guess...

I got to do a shoot with the lovely Tish Jarrett. I have shot with her before, in october. I love her work. We went to this graffiti tunnel by the waterloo tube station. It smelled like piss and paint, but it looked really cool. Thats something I really do love about London (not the piss smell), but the fact that graffiti is celebrated and it isn't really vandalism, it's art. The weather has been pretty decent recently, so I've been able to wear my "cool" clothing (sew stoked). I got this one piece from Omaya Vintage in Paris for about 5 euros. It was such a wonderful find, and I am so excited that I got it. I am usually not one for shoulder pads, but for some odd reason, I love them in this suit. The shoes are from UNIF. They are slaying the shoe game as of late. I love to wear my hair like this, but I always get really weird looks when I do it. I don't really mind it though. I get weird looks every day of my life.

Monday is Funday

Dress/ St Cyr Vintage, Shoes/ Y.R.U., Jacket/ Bleached Vintage

$up,
Happy monday everyone. I have a little over three weeks left in this term, and I am so excited to go home for easter break, how ever this week is crunch week. I have so much shit to do and I'm bugging out a little bit. I've done a lot of work but I just don't feel like its enough yet, so I am really going to hustle this week. Today we had 10 minutes of sunshine, and then it became really grey, but it was kind of warm (warm being 57 degrees). This dress I got in this really wonderful vintage store called St. Cyr Vintage in the Camden Market. I went there while my mom was still in town and we ended up getting lost in the market (as always) and we stumbled across this store. Everything was really well organized, and each article of clothing was arranged by size which was cool and frustrating. I saw frustrating because out of all the beautiful clothing there were only four things in my size. This dress was one of the four things, and thank god, because its soo cute. I made this coat a year ago, and it isn't really warm enough for London, but since today was kind of warm I got away with wearing it. These shoes are Y.R.U. and I find they are the most fun to wear, but I still really want to customize them. We'll see what happens.

I had a conversation with a woman on the tube yesterday. I complemented her coat, because it was bright pink, and really cute, and it is very rare to see an older woman wearing something colorful in London, especially on a rainy dreary day. She went on to day she liked what I was wearing and then we talked about how people give people wearing colors weird looks because everyone always wears black of grey. She went on to ask me if I was a student and what I did, and I asked her what she did. She does IT but she loves music and plays the piano and cello. it doesn't sound like much of a conversation, but it really made me feel good. People usually glare at me for wearing the stuff I wear, and it doesn't really bother me, but it does make it hard to talk to people. The fact that she wanted to talk to me, made me feel really nice. People never talk on the tube.. They should.

Music-I know I already posted Chela, but I mean come on, this is a great song.

Dress/ Meow Vintage, Jacket/ Omaya Vintage, Scarf/ H&M, Shoes/ Dr. Martens, Jewelry/ Vinca

$up,
These are the earrings I wrote about in the last post. I really love the way these look. I am a sucker for colorful plastic jewelry... and unicorns... It's actually kind of funny, unicorns used to freak me out. I was legitimately afraid of unicorns and then one day I saw a really colorful painted portrait of a unicorn and I couldn't stop laughing. Ever since then, I've been into unicorns. Once again, I got these earrings from Vinca USA. They are really awesome, PLEASE CHECK THEM OUT (Here.)! My dress is from Meow Vintage in Long Beach. When I was in high school I was super into 60s vintage, and I used to drive all the way down to Long Beach to go shopping. On 4th street in Long Beach, they have a huge variety of really awesome vintage stores. It's a bit pricey, but if you want quality vintage clothing, it's worth a trip. Vintage clothing is always better by the beach. This jacket I just recently got at Omaya Vintage in Paris. That shop was really awesome and it had really great prices, I walked away with this beauty for under 20 euros.

I went blonde, but I ran out of bleach so my hair still has some pink in it, but I think I might leave it that way. I think it looks kind of interesting. We'll see..

Music- I haven't actively been looking for new music like I usually do, so I don't really have any new songs to post, but I'll play an oldie but goody that has been in my mind lately.

Under Construction

Rings/ Vinca, Shirt/ Sun Thrift, Shorts/ Omaya, Shoes/ Jeffrey Campbell

$up,
How cute are these rings? I got a lovely gift basket from Vinca. Vinca is this cool new jewelry company in the US and they make really awesome rings earrings and necklaces, they even make custom jewelry. Check out their site here. I got these shorts from a vintage store in Paris called Omaya. It was a really cool place and everything was pretty cheap. I needed some new pink things and a saw these shorts and had to snag them, they are a little big, so I might take them in a bit. I have been super into turtle necks lately, so this shirt was a necessity for today.

I am getting really frustrated with the weather lately (all winter) because I am not used to having seasons, and my wardrobe is not equipt to handle it. There are all these things I want to wear, but its to fucking cold. I'm so over it. WINTER LEAVE ME ALONE!

Music- Everyone Wants to Rule the World.

Dancing Anymore

Dress/ Sun Thrift, Shirt/ Uniqlo, Shoes/ Dr. Martens

$up,
This look was captured in a Disney Hotel in Paris. For my 21st Birthday my mom got me a ticket to go to Disneyland Paris with her, and being a disney freak I was too down for it. We got into Paris on friday and hung around disney village and then called it an early night. This look was from saturday when we took the metro into the city and did horrible touristy stuff which wasn't horrible at all (minus the weather!). We went to du Louvre, and saw the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo, amongst other things. We went to the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Élysées and finished the night atop the Eiffel Tower. Sunday was all Disney and all fun. It's a lot different then the one in LA, but I think I like the one in LA more. One thing I found out this weekend, it sucks to be a Vegetarian in Paris. Today we went to this cool vintage store called Omaya, which I definitely recommend going to, everything is really cheap and they have really cool stuff. We also went to Pont des Arts and Notre Dame. Shortly after we went to the airport to return home to London.

I wanted to post this on saturday night, but the internet at our hotel was lousy, so I'm settling for today. I try to post as often as possible, but as of late its been really difficult. If you follow me on instagram you will get to see all my activities when I'm not posting on this blog. Check it out: Flourshur.

Music- THIS THOUGH.
