H&M self zipping off-black tee / $5


This top is from the live shop at Buffalo Exchange in Long Beach
back in good old December.
It was half off, so $5 instead of $10.


Really comfy, a medium weight and a great off-black color.
Wore it unzipped this 75 degree January day.



Its special talent is the thing can zip into itself!
There are pics of it like that on the Those Tricks FB page if you scroll down quite a bit.

Loving glitching stuff up right now.
Reminiscent of VHS video gone bad.
Here is next level glitch GIF-ing called Datamosh.

feather accessory / $0

01 feather in hair

Last night Marianne stuck a feather in my hair.

06 stars and feathers pink

I had an up ‘do asking for it, I guess.

05 back of 'do

The feather came from a duck at White Rock Lake.
Found by a boy, given to Marianne, passed on to me.

02 duck feather

We are so used to seeing feathers - in real life and art.
Fashion, decor, floating down from a tree.
But when you take the time to really look at them, think about them -
the engineering and architecture is something else.

03 feather detail

04 close up feather

And birds just casually grow these things.

07 pedal's feather
This particular feather really brought out the wild cat in Pedal. Hunting eyes!

thrifted LL bean navy anchor skirt / $2.50

01 wooden planks

02 LL Bean anchor skirt

03 thrifted LL bean navy skirt

Solid thrift find (even had the extra button, still!) but I think I will turn this skirt in at Buffalo Exhange.
Though it seemed like a perfect fit, it sits lower than I’d like.
I’m really into skirts/pants sitting at my high waist to accentuate curves.
Lower sitting waists tend to make me appear as a solid tube.
No good!

thrifted vintage silk adrianna papéll skirt / $2.50

silk floral skirt

purple heels in grass

skirt in gazebo

floral skirt

If only it had pockets!
No pockets on pants/skirts/dresses is usually a deal breaker for me.
The piece has to be somethin’ else and dirt cheap to be granted exception.
