Thrifted tank thing, Erin Wasson x RVCA shirt, Forever 21 necklace, Aldo peep toe boots.
I was in a uhh weird mood today..I cooped myself up in the house to get a bunch of work done, aside from a trip to Target where I accidentally spent $100..DAMNIT. I mean I needed the Sex and the City the Movie DVD but I’m thinking the Jemma Kidd makeup was a little extraneous.
This tank dress is probably the most horrible thing I’ve ever seen. I am therefore in love with it. It actually isn’t even a dress, it’s a men’s wifebeater for god’s sakes. Hanes. I found it at a Salvation Army in LA and since I’m too lazy to DIY 99% of the time I figured I would just reap the rewards of someone else’s little tie dye experiment.
Nothing like a day screwing around with these maniacs. I drove over to Costa Mesa (note: driving in ass-short leather skirt is just as awkward as one would imagine) to meet up with Kristin and Teen Vogue’s Andrew at the RVCA headquarters and take a look at where it all goes down. I met a bunch of people, drank trial sized Vitamin Water, and got to peer at unseen pieces from Erin’s line.
Isn’t every office similarly equipped?
A corner we didn’t sit in.
I had no idea that RVCA was involved with so many rad artists, in addition to publishing ANP, a quarterly magazine dedicated to art. Here are my favorites, but check them all out here:
Andrew drove us over to a Cuban restaurant in his classy town car to meet up with PM and the mildly insane Tim Hendricks where we chatted about tapeworms and chest hair over plantains. This was, of course, followed by an excursion into sneakerhead-topia. I proceeded to fondle the large-ish selection of Comme des Garcons wallets and make a scene with my beloved Andrew.
I think we were actually having that much fun. We all opted out of group sangria but you wouldn’t know it.
RVCA founder PM, me, Tim. We are doing really awesome things with our hands, no?
Kristin found these rusty barrels for me..she knows I like decrepit things. Awww.
Telling Kristin what’s up.
Teaching them how to pose like a blogger. It is, after all, a fine art.
Oops..except you’re not supposed to smile.
A tiny glimpse of Andrew’s DOLLY PARTON TSHIRT. Apparently he and Erin had the honor of meeting her this week..I can’t decide whether I’m jealous or not. In the back, it reads “Dolly Parton forever“. That’s all.
Then it was time for accessory show-and-tell in the backseat. I immediately whipped out my fingerless lace gloves.
I wanted to steal all of her rings. Especially the one that looks like it should belong to Shredder. Oh, and since I always receive a weird amount of questions about nail polish, I’m wearing “You don’t know Jacques” by OPI, which I spotted on Garance when we met up in New York. Apparently Kate Lanphear asked her about it too..just saying. Anyway, read her hilarious tale about it here.
Her nonchalant face. People asked for more Kristin so I tried extra hard to document her, as difficult as she made sure to make it.
Warehouse pictures are never too exciting. But warehouses themselves are.
Andrew likes them too.
The end…thank you to all of the above, and for the phone call on the way home ;)

American Apparel mesh bodysuit, Erin Wasson x RVCA tank, vintage skirt, secondhand shirt.
My interpretation of one of Alexander Wang’s runway looks, which inspired me to unsurface my favorite geeky dad/science teacher shirt and pair it with one of my latest vintage acquisitions. My favorite thing about the skirt is that I could totally put cash in the pockets and not lose it, how novel! It was about as cold as it appears to be in the photos, but that didn’t stop me from splashing around like an idiot and tracking sand all over my car…again. This is hardly impressive considering I swam these waters at night on the way home from a bar one crazy college night. I’m pretty sure I was cooler back then.
Caroline of Pensare Ancora sent me this dripping-in-chains necklace that I’ve been meaning to wear for a while now – it’s raw, almost industrial aesthetic is quite pleasing to me. Thanks Caroline ;)
Dress, Forever 21. Boots, Aldo.
More fun with the boots. I swear I wasn’t faux-hitchhiking in that second one, I was actually just giving my boyfriend a questioning thumbs up in regards to my location, but I had to post it since we both giggled (well, maybe he chortled) maniacally when we saw it blown up on the monitor.
Ps I set this post up yesterday but we’re now checked into our hotel in New York, so so stoked to be here. I’m on my phone so can’t really type much, hopefully will be able to blog sporadically while here.
