Foliage


Brown blouse (worn backwards): from my friend kirtland
Brown high waisted pleated shorts: cut from vintage/found trousers
Leather belt: dad
Buckle shoes: UO
Leather and Suede case: ?

i was bored after my homework, so i decided to do a little dress up. even though it was 6:00 p.m. and about 96 EFFIN DEGREES. why is it so hot?!

anyways, the shirt is interesting because it is supposed to be worn with the pleating in the front and the buttons in the back, but when i wore it this way, i saw that the midsection created a triangular shape. so i decided to experiment with the "cutout" trend but interpret it in a more classy and sophisticated way without looking like "look at my stomach/i wear crop tops to school."<<

SOO000O0O0O0 just wanted to thank everyone of my readers, for keeping up all the time! it makes me so happy and it puts a large smile on my face everytime i see these wonderful and sweet comments :)

I'm wondering how tall you are, because you're face is amazing. So editorial, if you aren't already modeling, you should be.

i really want a vintage suitcase now..i've always seen them at the thrift stores but i felt like i would never use them. and i think they could possibly make awesome storage boxes.

Oh wow, this is really really really beautiful. Looks straight off the runway!

I remember you liked my JC shoe entry for the Chictopia contest - well, if you were interested, you can now buy something extremely similar, but apparently not their standards:
