Planes, Chains, and Automobiles




Picked up this gorgeous 80s faux army jacket with chains extending from the front to the back at the Crossroads on Melrose Ave today. Seriously. Its the best khaki jacket I have ever laid my eyes on.

These bleach shorts (besides bike shorts) are my new alternative for the basic denim cutoffs. Absolutely beautiful and darling (and also one of my favorite twitter friends!) Niviarsiaq made these shorts for me. She bought them at Goodwill (except theyre Jcrew!) and painted the bleach on or something. She did a fantastic job either way. I love them. Thanks sooooooooo much lady!

Shorts- handbleached jcrew by Niviarsiaq
Tank- Topshop
Jacket- vintage
All necklaces- vintage or gifts

dude, genius look, the bleaching makes your cutoffs (way overdone elsewhere) look totally current! and pairing that with the navajo-esque color palette is really great. love that colorbeaded panel!!!
my trip to cali was amazing btw!
thanks for your lovely comments and its good to be back and blogging. :)

these shorts are indeed quite dreamy. i've been trying to produce a nice bleach job like that one for months now. end result - lots of ruined denim garments. oh well.

ps i've been gone for some time and came back to no more black bar! i'm still in shock. it's great to see your face, lady.
