Passion fruit and stealing loot

Mustard yellow: the color of the gods. Those tiny black buttons clustered so closely together and the loose lightness of this cotton are a dream come true. The best part? It cost 25 cents! Damn. Goodwill can be a dangerous place for those with obsessions with bargains.

... Have I ever mention how much I love accessories?

Love at 1st Bite

I just watched The Runaways, that movie with KStew and DFann about '70s punk girl band, and am OBSESSED. I wish I was born in 1952 so I could be a teen in the '60s and in my twenties in the '70s. How perfect?! If I had any sort of musical talent, like even just trusting my ability to yell into a microphone, I'd be all over that "let's make a band even though we're only 17 years old" thing. The Runaways had such a short-lived but insanely exciting existence. UGH! The ripped stockings, the lingerie as outerwear, the great black boots, the dyed hair, the colorful make-up, the bodysuits, the metallics! What a dream.

The outfit isn't totally inspired by anything '70s, but I was feelin' punky and like I wanted to intimidate people. I could totally beat someone up, right? Or at least spit on them. 

Too cool for school? Maybe. But it's summer break anyway, so we may never know. This loading dock, on a SCORCHING day, was pretty pimpin'. Check out this awesome look from my sisterbestfriend to see more of the dock.

Guess who's back

Shady's back. Back again. I've got me a camera so Lookbookin' is possible again! Hallelujah.
This green sweater was twenty-five cents at a garage sale in the middle of July, where my friends thought me insane for thinking about such clothing in 98 degree weather. It is my go-to garment nowadays. The faux leather shorts were on SUPER clearance at a JCPenney last summer for $2.50 and I wondered to myself, "Why so cheap?" I found out why quite quickly. These buddies make your ass sweat faster than sitting on a skillet. Also, the button fell off after two wears. But it's all good. I feel my new life motto goes something like: "Jewelry, jewelry, jewelry." I refuse to wear an outfit without a statement necklace or bunch of bangles and, of course, too many rings for one hand.

Oh. I got a bit of a haircut. Since I last posted a picture of my hair, it has been completely blonde, to completely bright red, then back to all blonde, and now partially blonde and my natural hair color. What is hair for other than to play with, right?
