weekend shots

21/06/2010, california love, sd

My last weekend at home for a little while..traveling to New York and Tokyo this week, then Philadelphia and San Francisco in July. And finally signed a lease on the perfect crash pad in LA so I won’t have to be driving back and forth from San Diego the same day all the time. Well I’ll still be driving a lot but it’ll just make things..easier. Plus my mom got me those crazy transparent “Ghost” chairs..I’ve always wanted those things and for no specifiable reason. Newer pieces I’m wearing here: meshy Alexander Wang henley, Winter Kate silk cardigan, vintage stone ring, and Forever 21 lace ruffle shorts they gave me from the photo shoot.

Striped long sleeve tops are one of those things I’m always looking for..I like that the material of this one is somewhere in between a tshirt and heavier knit. Also wearing the other half of my Topshop order – the chiffon tie Wisteria wedges that I jumped on when they restocked. So perfectly mummy-like..though I haven’t figured out the most ideal way to do them up yet.

when you throw a bunch of people together in the forest, they become something more than just a bunch of people together in the forest

(Meadham Kirchoff x Topshop asymmetrical dress, vintage slip, Miu Miu clogs)

Got ahead of myself on the Topshop collaborations there…first there was Meadham Kirchoff. I probably would have worn most of the line because it’s fun to look like a downtrodden fairy but I decided against the embellished pieces because I never wear sequins as much as I convince myself I might. The raw hem and asymmetrical patchwork quadrant are magical enough (this is me convincing myself that the peachy crop top layered dress is extraneous to my’s only kind of working).

Colin and I slipped down layers of leaves on almost ninety degree slants and got entangled in disturbingly strong spiderwebs to get to this spot…it was completely blocked from the sun and encircled by the greenest life I’ve seen in Southern California for a while. With the wispy dress and crunchy surroundings I ended up accidentally channeling one of my favorite movie characters, Pixel in Happy Campers ie. Jaime King as a bohemian (in every sense of the word) camp counselor dressed in sheer layers and glittery bits. You probably haven’t seen it but you should. I think I caught it on TV once and now it’s one of the very select movies I own. Not saying it isn’t completely stupid too, because it is.

Talia: Here’s where we tell you that this was the summer we lost our innocence.
Donald: But really, it’s the summer we got it back.
Jasper: Excuse the cheese, but love matters, respect matters, and causing pain is never cool.
Pixel: Actually causing pain is about the coolest thing you can do, but cool isn’t what it used to be.
