Teenagers from mars

I feel like I've had a lot of free time lately, but of course I haven't really done anything creative or productive because those kinds of things require effort. I haven't even been taking proper outfit pictures, BUT I have been taking advantage of the camera on my new iPhone so I thought I'd share with you guys a few recent looks...
I wore this a few weeks ago already, but I'm still really feeling it. Thrifted Miami tank, what I call my "PTA meeting trousers", and these chunky wooden sandals I got on sale at Aldo. I wear them with everything, I seriously can't stop.
See, I really do wear these sandals with everything! I love them with black tights, which are manditory when wearing these shorty short jean shorts (thrifted). Also wearing this crop top thrifted at a VV half off sale. I bought it aaaages ago but only now am I ready to wear it in it's full, midriff baring glory. Also wearing a thrifted flannel shirt. ALSO I just really loved my hair that day so I thought I'd get a close up... I think the green hair actually looks sweet with a side part, no?
And finally, I wore this yesterday to bum around and then go buy some frozen lasagne. Speaking of food, has everyone seen my food blog?? I just realized I've only ever mentioned it on twitter I think... but I digress! The outfit consists of my fav thrifted goth boots, black leggings from Winners, tshirt from UO, vintage Burton buffalo check jacket (my brother's friend left it at our house and I claimed it), and this cutey little backpack I thrifted for $3 a few days ago.

Maybe I'll try to do some sewing or something remotely productive for the rest of the day... all this spare time is actually boring as hell.

I met a girl in East LA

So the other day I had this brilliant idea to go thrifting in a nearby town. I mean, the more obscure the shop's location the wierder and more wonderfull the finds, right? But due to some bad planning on my part, the shop was closed on the day that we went (what kind of store is closed on a Monday anyways??)! I was pretty dissapointed at first, but hey I got a few outfit shots out of it in the end.
The floral shorts were thrifted from the wierd secondhand store I talked about a few posts back, which I really like but, I'm not sure, they look awkward with this outfit.. maybe I should have rolled them up more like bloomers? Decisions, Decisions!
I was debating on whether to even post these photos at all, as the shorts are really throwing me off. I was going for bit of Proenza Schouler Summer '10 with the surfer vibes and green hair, clashing with oversized black polo buttoned up all the way and the chunky Aldo heels to girlify it a bit. I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE, working out outfits in retrospect is hard! I decided to post it anyways cos I want to just share more with you guys, even if it's not "my best work" or something amazingly creative, I'd rather this blog be more like a journal but from an artistic perspective. Ya dig?
Ok, off to watch Empire Records and Chasing Amy. Late 90's movie night y'all! Peace

I've had enough, this is my prayer

Oh hey y'all, guess what... I got green hair

If you're following me on twitter you'd have seen it already! I've been dying (hehe) to do it for months, and kept putting it off for days and days. I had to give myself a firm pep talk and listen to Hair a few time before busting out the dye. I'm pretty proud of doing it myself, and I love how it turned out with leaving the tips blonde. I used Manic Panic's "Electric Lizard" with a bit of "Atomic Turquoise" and some white toner I bought in Camden last year. 1

I was going for mermaid-y, My Little Pony vibes, but what I got a bit more Garbage Pail Kids. Yet OBVIOUSLY it's supposed to be an authentic 1977 punk look, but most people are just too stupid to get it!
Some of my hair inspiration: Nicki Minaj in the "Massive Attack" video, an editorial from I Love Fake magazine, and (obvi) Enid from Ghost World.

ALSO my nail game is at an all-time high with these freaking amaaaazing fake nails. My friend bought them for me from Forever 21. I don't buy clothes from there but I just couldn't say no to these 3D nails.

Kind of just a LOOK AT ME post but that's kind of all that's new with me at the moment. How's everyone's summer going? Unless it hasn't started yet, in which case how do liiiiive??
