they don't want none of them long hairs hanging around


This outfit is mostly thrifted. Shoes Jeffrey Campbell. Tights from drugstore. Shirt from Forever 21.

This is my all time favorite sweater from the 1950s. The whole thing is made so beautifully, I can never get over it. It is lined with lace, has a removable fur collar, and much of the sweater was sewn by hand. Vintage clothing, my friends, is the way to go. (I can go on, and on...) I shortened this suede skirt to make the front a little shorter than the back and I love it. The vest layered over the sweater is a Calvin Klein number I found digging around at a thrift store.

OH! I tried making a version of honestlywtf.com's hex nux bracelet. I used shoelace and hex nuts. This bracelet has rarely left my wrist since I made it.
