in which i make myself seem really intellectual, sophisticated, et cetera

It's Chicago's hottest day of the wear and I'm wearing three head things, three skirts, my favorite shirt that should really not get sweated in, and socks with heels. And you know what? I WILL LIKE IT, AND THE WEATHER WILL LEARN TO ENJOY IT.
If not, Weather, I will kick you with these wooden wedges (I can somehow walk actually amazingly in) and strangle you with my cage skirt. Then I will blind you with a video Sophie took of me DANCING (oh yes, it is painful) and the forces of my Yokoo headpiece will overthrow your asshat-edness.This is my "rolling with the homies while looking like an old lady/airplane/japanophile" outfit.
And OH YES, that is a Comme des Garcons shirt. That was maybe purchased really sneakily. Will take a better picture laterzzzzz.

Ahh, the Comme shirt is TOO much... in a good way! I love it, all the colours here are just totally all over the place but it all just works. I saw the wedges on another blog and I didn't really care for them, but I'm having a rethink after seeing them how you styled them. Nice.

Aya Smith said...

That is quite the name for the look! Is it wrong that I would totally wear this??? haha

Alicia said...

Am I the only one that wants to compliment you on the wedges but insist that you put on some shoes that don't contort your developing frame?

I am so old.

I just requested to follow you on twitter, culinarybliss

I'm glad to see you're not letting the weather cramp your style :)

whereinsoever said...

hope you don't melt in the heat, kiddo! but if you do, do it in style yeah! :)

holly said...

though the layers might make this inappropz for summer, the personality of this outfit is pure august.

so i'm a fan of your blog and i thought of you while reading Michelle Tea's article in this month's Believer: http://www.believermag.com/issues/200907/?read=article_tea a radical outsider's view of the fashion industry, more interesting than most, complete with rodarte refs.
