my love and i decided that we were born to have adventure. nothing screams adventure like hopping on atvs and riding the oceano dunes. it was too much fun. we almost couldn't be bothered to stop to take pictures. these photos do not even come close to showing the beauty that we rode through. huge mountains of sand swept by the wind...huge gusts of wind whipping against our bodies...my heart, beating in fear and excitement as i get caught in the punchbowl and have no choice but to floor it and careen from bluff to bluff going nowhere but circular nowhere- and fast. riding steep two story cliffs only to spit straight up another two stories giving it your all just to get over the humps. screaming out conquering screams of joy and then teeth chattering when you realize that what you are actually doing could be fatal.
dress- vintage. shoes- Forever21. hair scarf- Escada.
I bought this dress so long ago. It's difficult to wear because the fabric isn't the best. But today I felt the pleats took precedence. It was one of those warm/chilly days so the heaviness and "unbreathableness" actually worked in my favor. I tried layering a camel colored knit over it but again, the fabric is limiting and it looked frumpy and hid the interesting bits of the dress. I guess every now and then I can succumb to simple femininity without the comfort of layers or toughness.
hat- army surplus nyc. cotton cropped sweater- F21. 90's weekend pants- c/o Son Of John.
my friend, andrea has a clothing company called Son Of John. she lives in brooklyn but had a few la meetings last weekend. she stayed with us for a night and brought gifts!!! these pants are one of the many. thank you!!! i think everyone can agree that nostalgia really plays a huge part in fashion.
i used to rock boxers under my girbaud denim with the waistband peeking out. currently, i am loving the pairing of "weekend pants" with blazers or button ups. these are an edgier version of that look. the subtle dropped crotch detail is so helmut lang haremesque. remember? i see these pants in my immediate autumn future with a sheer blouse, A Wang creepers and a leather.
