last post until mexico!
i wore a version of this outfit the other night to see the icarus line play at the echo. if you like true rock n' roll... this IS the band for you. my friend adam and i literally could not stop dancing like crazy people in front of the stage- their music is electrifying and mesmerizing and brain-melting. guitar solos to make you weak in the knees and a front man who i'm CONVINCED is iggy pop and nick cave's love child... okay, i think i've gushed enough. you should check them out, and i promise you that their live show is about a zillion times better than anything you've ever seen. adam and i went as far as saying it was the best show we've ever seen.
still not going back on that statement.
now a little fashion ramble:
lately i've been feeling like i can't "keep up" with most bloggers and their closets of overflowing beautiful new clothing. 99% of the time, i am strapped for cash and would rather eat good food instead of dropping a hundred bucks on shoes. don't get me wrong, i WANT plenty of shit.
the outfit i'm wearing above is less than $50.
i guess i just want to make sure that people who read my blog know that this is totally doable fashion. a little trick i use to not be tempted by expensive clothing: DON'T GO INTO EXPENSIVE STORES. EVER!
okay, i've yapped enough- time to go sign my new lease (!!!), attempt to finish packing, edit photos for new stock to list in the store before i leave, and finish my to-do list for work tomorrow.
i just discovered ARK, a non-profit organization which helps animals in need after the devastating japan earthquake and tsunami.
a small percentage of crystallized sales goes to animal charities, and i am so thrilled to be donating to the ARK organization this month. i hope you guys can find it in your heart to donate anything at all- the thought of the animals affected in the disasters has broken my heart ever since seeing the very first footage months ago...
(if you're unsure how much to donate, use this US dollar to japanese yen converter: here)
