*sheer black tank purchased from FAT while living in australia, vintage pants, shoes from the garment district, skull necklace from venice beach, vintage jewelry/belt.

i held myself back from screaming with delight after i found these pants in my all time favorite vintage shop for 22 dollars. from glancing at them on the hanger, i pictured them fitting low waisted and was absolutely thrilled to discover that they are super high-waisted, SUPER fitted, and the perfect awkwardly high-water length... just like a perfect 70's silhouette should be.
i have a very abnormally long torso, which makes high-waisted pants make me almost look proportionate. i'm 5'10", and i'm pretty damn sure all of my height is in my torso and neck. it's weird.

i put these babies on as soon as i got home and wore this outfit the rest of the day while finishing up some work at the studio. i enjoy the gypsy goth mixture today, as i've been full out au naturel hippie for a few weeks now. i still love me some black, skulls, and unnecessary straps... if only i had a motorcycle...

also found the most ridiculously perfect burnt orange velvet shorts. i'll be wearing these whilst on a mini-vacay with my boyfriend in Ojai this weekend... i'm on a weekend road trip bender- this is my third one in a row. can't wait to get back to Ojai and properly explore it, as i think it's one of the most beautiful places in california...

What a steal with the pants. I love the tassel detailing at the bottom. I have the exact opposite "problem" that you have. My torso is so short (I am short) so high waisted things look ridiculous on me. Apparently I don't care about looking ridiculous though, considering half of my shorts are high waisted. Bleeahh.

I can't even process this! Those pants are SO amazing, especially with that belt. Also, your neck is swan-like. It is a blessing.

You know, it's funny but I never think your outfits have any amount of sluttiness at all! You have such a great carefree wild child vibe that you're the type that can go baring it all and it would just look "free". :)


Also, I feel the same about your pretty features! AND we should definitely plan something! Next weekend!!
