Jumpin' Jack Flash

coat - vintage // Triumph tee - vintage // denim button-up shorts - Etsy // socks - Target // vintage boots - Harley-Davidson

My obsession with knee-high (or thigh-high since I'm a lil nugget) socks has come back from the DEAAAADDDDDD!!! They're the best kind of socks and make me feel way more comfortable, kinda like "aaaahh.. this feels like home *sips warm drink*". But first, can we just talk about this amazing vintage coat? A similar one is in the works right now for Miracle Eye! So excited about that. I have this weird thing about outerwear and shoes, to me they're the most important part of an outfit cause they can make or break it. So please Los Angeles, step your cold game up so I and my fellow coat lovin' weirdos can give life to our favorite big warm (always faux-fur) jackets! Since most of these photos are taken of me sitting down, here's a photo of me standing up so you have a better view of dis sweet outfit:

Down On The Corner

vintage ac/dc tee - $2 at the rose bowl flea market (what a fucking score) // orange floral crushed velvet leggings - coming soon to Miracle Eye // sunglasses - c/o ZeroUV // vintage boots - eBay // jewelry - vintage + handmade 

Last night was a "classic night-of-experimenting-with-makeup night" as my friend Saila put it, and I finally learned how to correctly fill in my eyebrows. Let me tell you something, eyebrows change lives. I feel like a new woman. I feel like I can wear anything and not feel self-concious because my eyebrows look incredible (once filled in). It's crazy how what seems like a small, insignificant detail can affect so much. I know the internet has gone on an eyebrow-craze recently and now I know why. Anyways, hi, I swear I like things other than eyebrows. Wait, isn't it strange that we have a worm-shaped patch of hair above our eyes?

Ridin' The Storm Out

It felt so weird to have my photos taken on a busy street for the first time in a while. The idea of maintaining a personal style blog that is mostly just photos of your face and body seems so vain in retrospect. I have to say that the absolute best thing that's resulted from this here ol' blog is the friendships I've fostered with people who I consider my best friends now and the people I see on a semi-regular basis because we like to do things in real life and eat real food and talk about things. And of course the amazing friends that don't live in California or the US, but live on the other side of the globe. Those are just as important to me and can truly stand the test of time (and distance). 

So I also recently stumbled upon this video that sheds light on webcam child sex tourism (in case you didn't know what that was) and an incredible idea the people behind the video came up with. It's seriously amazing. You can also sign their petition that will help end webcam child sex tourism here

In other news, Halloween was a week and a half ago, and here is a very serious photo of me being a very serious person.

 crop sweater - asos // skirt and flannel - vintage (thrift store) // sunglasses - c/o ZeroUV // boots - matiko // bag - so old can't remember

Yesterday was a very monumental day for me because I finally purchased my own very FIRST plant, ever. I can't wait to fill my room with tons of succulents and colorful plants within the next few months since I don't want to "force" the visual change as well the responsibilities that arise. Like constantly watering, making sure no direct sunlight (or maybe they like basking in the sunlight, havta ask the plant first), and of course making space. The baby pictured here is a little aloe vera plant stationed in a vintage pipe mixture can flask-like box. Couldn't be more me if it tried! (maybe if I stuck a glittery eye sticker on it it could technically be more me, heh). 

On a note that doesn't have to do with plants, these sunglasses from ZeroUV are perfect (and $10!). They've quickly turned into my favorite pair I've ever owned. I'm surprised they haven't gotten loose or cracked or any of that since I've worn them with practically all my outfits these days. So good. I also tend to shy away from cat-eye styles but again, these do not disappoint. Also, no squinting involved ever when worn, which is great because I hate looking more angry/sad/disappointed than I already naturally (and unintentionally) do! I swear I'm not holding a butcher knife behind my back and a warrant to kill you, sir stranger!!

top - Silence + Noise // Zola Black Leggings - Miracle Eye // rings and concho choker - Miracle Eye // boots - El Dantes

This outfit summarizes what my style has basically evolved to, except it's probably missing some type of weirdo hat and some tie-dye situation... In other news that is much more interesting than style, not to mention important, I ran into this article. The article titled, "'Smile, baby': The words no woman wants to hear" in summary describes the detrimental effects sexual harassment (for example, cat calls) can have on women and how objectifying it is. 

This is a line that really stuck out to me because I can really identify with a few of these: 

"The younger the girl, the more negative the possible effects, which are well documented and can include depression, shame, headaches, anxiety, withdrawal, fear, self-objectification and more."

In the next paragraph, it also lists incidents and fatalities due to a woman not responding the way a man wanted her to respond after instigating and harassing:

"In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.  In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request. In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.  Just Google, 'Man grabs woman.' The problem with street harassment isn’t the demand that a woman smile or perform fellatio, the problem is the answer to the question, 'What if a woman doesn’t want to?'"

Street harassment is disgusting and I'm really glad that websites like I Hollaback exist. The website is proactive and helps (well, as much as it can) put an end to stress harassment.

dress - DIY // boots - harley davidson // sunglasses - ray ban (purchased on eBay) // rings - flea market

Bangs are finally growin' out, heat is finally sizzling down, I'm cooking my own meals, the Miracle Eye homepage and product shots are lookin' nicer and nicer... These are some good times and good vibes. You should also totally watch this awesome video of this pastor shitting his pants after asking a politician why he supports gay marriage for some more happy vibes. I swear, it's good. Oh, and the title of my post isn't a typo, it's the title of a fantastic song by the Brian Jonestown Massacre!
