she only thinks "the notebook" is inappropz because she is older than dino sue and when she was young kids weren't even allowed to know what pee is

I think if I could go back to any time it would be the 60's. It wasn't THAT long ago but my favorite time for clothing and music and basically all around culture (there are other things from that time I could surely do without but that's the case with every era). Today I tried to magically take myself there..it did not work. But whatevs.
Also,
GINSBERG MAN///(lol hi eden lol omg) (no you were not supposed to understand that unless you are eden) (in which case i will be highly insulted if you don't get it) (but you will) (hi again)Uh anyway, this lovely dress from Christine at Future Lint came yesterday and is just perfect. Kinda Pucci, kinda Matt Dubzilliam, and some of the patterns remind me of Joni Mitchell drawings. You are INSANE not to be enlarging this picture right now. It is beautiful.I figured that wearing it with floral docs and this floral shirt that is older than your mom and sunglasses that it would magically be spring. My powers that failed at transporting myself 45 years back were now effective because it was wonderful today.
So pretty much all I write about on this blog is Rei and the weather. And more Rei.
Walking to school in these sunglasses made everything look nicer. When I took them off it was all corporate and blue and cold and school-feeling.*thinks she is leaning against the wall of the Gaslight*

vintage dress/belt/dr. martens (ebay)/givenchy sunglasses (gift.) childhood closet shirt. h&m tights.

Nice mix of prints.

Going all out with the prints was defffffinitely the right choice.

And if you have nice Spring-like weather in Chicago now, does that mean it'll move East in a day or two? Please send it our way, this evil snow must melt.

When I was about 13 (21 now) I was obsessed with 60s culture. I'd always sit in my room and paint psychedelic designs on t-shirts whilst listening to bands like strawberry alarm clock and the small faces. A couple of years later, it was of much shock to my naive self to find out that they were all on L.S.D. From then on I felt like a fraud with my tripped out designs.

Just a little tid-bit for you.

This is so folk in the best way.

Like you could be performing a moody song about heartbreak at any moment and I wouldnt be surprised.

mix of colours is very smart. oh and givenchy shades?!... I figured I should address it.

i love the prints!

bobb said...

Yep, sixties culture was so great in many ways; art, clothing, literature and particularly music. I would include the early 60's here, a period that sometimes gets neglected. I think it's a toss up between the 60's and the 20's with the 1950's a close third. The 20's marked the birth or expansion of the recording of jazz, blues, country etc. with the advent of electrical recording. A decade with great art , clothing and literature as well.
