I decided to blog this outfit because it is so damn cute. Everything is secondhand, thrifted or gifted for mine. It has been a pretty chill summer.
I've been reading a lot and teaching myself Spanish. Currently reading a fascinating biography about the dancer Isadora Duncan during her time founding a children's school in Russia. She was a total communist, which wasn't something that was brought up in my college courses about her.
I want to write more on topics of interest besides just outfits. I remember I used to have an obsessions du jour post. I want to combine elements of my dancing and photography into creative presentations. I have a series of self portraits I am proud of and intend to print for exhibition one of these days.I have grown so much in the past years and my appreciation for life has quadrupled.
So next time I will write more about my thoughts and ideas. It is very difficult to express myself and much easier for me to convey things through photos, but it is a worthwhile endeavor just the same. I have lots of ideas for art projects and would like to include some tutorials as well. I've been making some lovely stars and exploring the wonderful world of film photography. I broke my leg and it is finally healing and I can dance again! I even got to perform a short solo this summer at the Crocker. I will be graduating in December with my dance degree and am excited to enjoy the end of this period in my life.
If you appreciate this blog please let me know.
Beatrix is in third grade and we have been having a lot of fun with her hairstyles. She is obsessed with this website called cute girls hairstyles and is learning French and cursive.
Bea's baby animal leggings are from H & M and her shirt is American Girl.
She is reading and swimming up a storm just like I did when I was a little girl.
This was a funner shoot in some ways because I had my man shoot me. Went to Davis Arboretum last weekend and found some gorgeous reflective light under the shade of a redwood. This dress is pretty old making it super comfy and stretched out and the pattern and colors are distinctive. In other news just got a little pinhole camera and am excited to experiment. I am deciding to work more on photography again. Also modeling a bit more. School is keeping me pretty busy. Almost showtime for a piece I am choreographing, Dreamland, which has been all kinds of incredible.
cut-offs:thrifted and self made. shirt:thrifted and gifted. blazer:vintage
A recommencement of the blog has been a project I have been meaning to embark upon. A two year hiatus has renewed my focus on my love of quirky, cheap, frayed, fun fashion, (and a broken leg but that is another story.) These shorts are still kinda my favorite even though they are practically falling apart. It gives them a frayed edge. I wore this outfit two nights ago to see the band Eternal Tapestry.
I complement various prints from being too busy by keeping the colors consistent and the loose jacket pairs down the fitted ensemble.
The shoes are very comfortable which is another very important factor when considering fashion.The tights allowed me to wear these past their prime cutoffs into the new season,
Making your own cut offs is a great way to revitalize a pair of jean whose cut is to frumpy or dated. The trick is to cut them at the right length for your figure. I prefer cutting them longer in the back and shorter in the front. This creates an appealing short look in the front while covering you assets properly in the back.
Anyhow Happy Spring! Allergy season is in full effect for those affected. Achoo!
Happy thrifting until next time.
I got the shirt at thrift by the pound. the shorts from my bestie Morgan Shotwell. shoes thrifted. so today was kinda crazy. I lost my purse. bummer. but what a beautiful day. 74 degrees. my goodness! I love Sacramento. Oh yes and the black magnolias. tres bonne! Update. My purse was found. I left it at the rose garden and someone from a nearby preschool turned it in. yes. the world is full of goodness. of that I am sure!
