Tie-Dye T- Vintage store in Fukuoka (Japan), Cutoffs- Siwy, Sharktooth Necklace- Self/Mom made, Square Bangle- Fallon, random vintage flair
This is one of those posts that make me feel a bit ehhh. There is something decidedly icky about sandwiching photos of myself throughout an inspiration post. Just to be clear- I in no way find myself inspirational to myself. Alright.
So I have this obsession with tie-dye that pretty much transcends season. You can probably imagine how nice Proenza Schouler Spring '10 was for me- I still have that one cotton tank top in blue and in acid green. And no, I really couldn't afford either one. But the most important member of my huge tie-dye things collection would be the T pictured above. I found it at the best vintage store I've ever had the privilege of visiting. A couple years ago, I got to go to Fukuoka, Japan for a wedding. Actually, Joey lived there for a while before we met, and his best American friend was marrying a Japanese friend, hence the whole Margaret getting to tag along thing. Anyway, there was this mall called Tenjin Core that had an entire floor devoted to amazing vintage. I forced Joey to take me there every single day we were in Japan. So ya, the point of that whole drawn out story is that I got this T-shirt, and I love it. A lot.
Also, those lavender dyed cutoffs are perfect, and I deeply envy whoever that is wearing my favorite Pamela Love necklace with a really, really good tie-dyed shirt. And though I wimped out on getting my eyebrows dyed (which has a lot to do with my hairstylist's reaction- shock, followed by "but you already have such light eyebrows...", and her assurance that it would look weird ((in a bad way)) without some kind of tan), I am pretty sure that it's time to forfeit the nose ring for some light purple streaks. Wow, I think it's possible that the preceding sentence is the longest I've ever written. Anywho, I can't see myself pulling off the ring and the streaks without looking like some sort of dejected adolescent hell-bent on pissing off her parents.
So I guess I could have just said "I like tie-dye and purple things at the moment", but rambling is deeply important to me. As is this deeply important work of art:
