*vintage kimono, wasteland tank, DIY vintage shorts, vintage belt, vintage platform sandals, vintage bucket bag, konstantino bracelet

first of all- i finally caved and started using my TUMBLR. follow me! give me some suggestions! i'm so addicted, even though i swore i'd never be.

this weekend was pretty wonderful, despite this gnarly heat wave that has my face melting off 90% of the day. madeline and i spent friday sourcing for our upcoming online store... i had to snag a few of our items to wear while walking around los feliz today... i love it all SO MUCH. the vintage neon orange kimono, breathtaking vintage leather bucket bag, and vintage western belt are a few pieces from our MASSIVE amount of stock. i might put up a fight for this bag... it's insane. i spent part of the drive home hugging it while madeline looked at me like i needed a psychiatric evaluation. picked up these ridiculous platform sandals at a vintage shop today... anything that has a wooden platform heel is just going to be mine, simple as that.

yesterday adam and i suffered through nearly three hours of traffic to get to malibu for some much needed swimming and beach time. i really wish i had photo documentation of us body surfing in the crystal clear water as the sun was setting... it seriously looked and felt like a scene from a movie shot in hawaii. going to the beach never fails to center me and make me feel like myself again. can't wait to get back there as soon as possible.

i've been meaning to post about my recent discovery (thanks, sis!) of a project commissioned by the andy warhol foundation- dean from the rad 90's band LUNA and britta from jem and the holograms are a sickeningly beautiful and talented couple who were asked to score 13 of andy warhol's famous screen tests. the outcome is 13 screen tests set to the most painfully perfect music written specifically for the person in the video by dean and britta. they've been touring this creation for a few years now, and my sister was lucky enough to see it. i've been watching the videos on repeat for over a week now... if you're a velvet underground, andy warhol, or just general music fan... you will love them. they're all on youtube, but here's one of my favorites:

Have I told you yet that I really like your blonde hair? Looks good on you, girl! And those are the most perfect denim shorts. And you are awesome. <3

Love your kimono and platform sandals - platforms are my favorite! I got to the beach this weekend, but it was actually cold, so I didn't go in the water. How amazing are your photos! Love the combat boots on the sand!

The vintage kimono and bucket bag are incredible. Instantly coveted.

ok. so. i've been putting this off. but.

i'm sorry i shat out while i was in venice beach. i totally had limited time, limited brain power, limited self-centerism (i bought a plain white t-shirt and grey sweat pants, wore them for like 4 days straight while there and was totally un-dirty hair halo), but i fucking love you and hope we have another opportunity in the future. fucking really. i'm totally gay for you. married woman gay. the best kind.

anyway. excited to see your new project. you know i'll be stalking it. per usual. such a stalker. i may have had some drinks like all day today. it's sunday funday. no excuses though.

The blonde looks amaaaaaazing on you!! You are such an inspiration Brit. The reason why I obsess over your blog (and Madeline's) is because you guys don't focus on labels or designer names...you guys focus more on the idea of fashion and clothing itself whether that be vintage or modern and that is what it's all about. Keep spin your thing woman!

Ashley said...

Ps. Apparently my phone prefers the word spin over "doin'". DOIN' is what I meant to say...ahem.

inês said...

you look amazing, love it!

I saw these guys (Dean and Britta) at Primavera Sound 2011 (Barcelona) recently, playing songs of his old band Galaxie 500. Please, if you have not listened to them, do it, Galaxie 500 es lo más maravilloso del mundo :D

Kisses,
Your post made me feel so happy and nostalgic about my childhood, during long time I thought that Jem and the holograms had been a dream n_n And now is so weird and funny realized that Britta was Jem. How I did not know it before!

:)

Lovely post and shoes ;)
