Morning post with some K-pop accompaniment. That certainly deserves a coffee/cigarette break no?
Making things inside out is genius, whether it’s Margiela or Ksubi or well, just say your average blogger girl. They don’t have Vogue patterns for that shit.

Moustache Man and I hit up the beach yesterday. It was overcast and chilly, but still beautiful to be by the water and lay in the sand. MM calls this my Frankenkini. A bit of Marlies, dash of Zimmermann and pinch of Minimale Animale to spice up your life.
I just discovered Minimale Animale, which may start a new unhealthy shopping addiction. The unique styles have flattering cuts and cleverly naming them after super models allows you to embody the magical sexual prowress of said SUPER. Designer/Stylist Cassandra Kellogg sums up the swimwear line in these words: ”The collection is for confident, young-at heart women who aren’t afraid of wearing something striking, and also for those who embrace their natural beauty and are comfortable in their own skin.”
After seeing all the neon effect necklaces out and about I couldn’t help desiring a little rhinestone sparkle in my life. I found a great vintage piece and was going for more of a Margiela powder coat, but had to scratch the idea due to possible poisonous side effects. I ended up going with my original plan, which just proves you should always stick with your first instincts.
Moustache Man and I have been cruising the city for our latest photo sets. I’m happy to say that we’ve found some great spots around my old internship stomping grounds bringing back fond memories of the burrito truck, diaper photo shoots and general footwear design genius. More later.
This pleated chiffon scrap had been sitting in my pile of to be continued . . . projects for a few weeks now. I knew what I wanted to make, but needed to let the idea stew for a bit. I was inspired by my unconditional skirt trousers from a while back. Even though they’re my favorite trousers, I found myself craving something that was a little more versatile, something I could wear over dresses, skirts, pants and of course tuck my revolver into.
What Moustache Man affectionately calls me when I’m off in my own world. The top is fitting for the nickname isn’t it?
I picked up these leather hot pants at a J Brand sample sale. Since MM and I found a fairly abandoned photo spot, I decided to do some hot pant testing. After some kicks, jumps, and sprints, I gave them the green light. Can’t have these suckers splitting on me unexpectedly. But does that even ever really happen?
I’ve got some more DIY’s on the way . . . been scouring for supplies and other fun stuff. Can’t wait!
