(Han, Demonia boots)
I know I’ve posted this image before but this is one of my favorite editorials – Alastair McKimm via i-D featuring Han in a bodysuit, tights as sleeves, massive footwear, and the mother of all bandage dresses. I mean what’s not to like here? It seems the line between fashion and fetish blurred into oblivion long ago, and even Forever 21 is catching up with their faux leather shorts that a few readers kindly forwarded to me today..not bad not bad…
The rest of it –

Wearing a backpack with a poncho might seem like a bad idea but it ended up acting as an anchor against the crazy wind that actually ruined most of the photos we took. I hate wind! One reason not to miss Norcal, it’s about a thousand times worse up there.
I’m horribly attracted to these crochet pieces at Topshop..
First the backless crochet top was revived from high school and this morning I picked up a delightfully tacky dress version while thrifting around. I also have in storage a large-ish collection of crochet bikinis left over from the year I spent in Hawaii, and even the thought of lounging around by the ocean in one of these is starting to appeal to me…perhaps somehow integrated with my chunkiest sweater.
More on the topic of knit one pieces – this girl knit her Rodarte-inspired bodysuit herself…amazing.

Colin had been wanting to use this freeway overpass for a little while and yesterday after we tried out a new sandwich place it was right in our path. This was one of those outfits that ended up being totally ideal for the temperature..love when that happens.
Sooo before you think I went bodystocking shopping, let me explain that the sleeves are cutoff tights with a hole cut through the center. Pretty fun to wriggle into.
What I purchased over the course of the day:
ETA a little more explanation – take a pair of tights (I want to try a crocheted pair next…) and cut out the crotch, this will be the hole that you put your head through. Leave the waistband intact so that the ‘shirt’ will stay in place, cut the sleeves to the appropriate length, with or without thumb holes..and you’re done 😉
Oh and also American Apparel is coming out with a mesh minidress soon…should be good.
Of course half of this is sold out/unavailable. And I saved that Westwood boot photo like five years ago…if they ever show up on eBay it’s over. Can you imagine how good they’d look after a couple hundred wears?
A little Googling on ear cuffs and I found Zannedelion..a few of these might be pretty cool. Perhaps 7607, 1102, or 1303. Though I maintain that there should be more chain mesh and less tiny balls involved.
Sorry for the hiatus, I’ve been grappling a cold this week so haven’t worn anything more exciting than my shoddy Target slippers and long socks. But I’ve been OD-ing on vitamins and water so hopefully will be intact by Saturday night..
(secondhand cropped angora sweater, Kristin’s Kill City jeans, Chloe boots)
Kristin and I met up this morning for a quick henna session, and after lying around in the sun for it to dry we were off for some scheduled randomness. Too bad it didn’t stain deeper, but it’s still fun to look down and keep on being surprised at the ink on my left hand.
Anyway, as it goes, an unbelievably 90s angora sweater, wood grain-ish denim, and a backflip off of a desk in 5″ wedges (ok I wish) and a good Sunday was had. More pics to come once I have the patience to resize them.
