i found this amazing vintage jumpsuit last weekend for a few bucks... and even though it was perfect as pants, i had to cut it into shorts so i'd be able to wear it all summer. i somehow manage to cut ALL shorts too short- literally, every pair of jeans i've chopped into shorts are a little too butt-grazing for comfort... so it was no surprise that i did the same thing with this jumpsuit... hence layering my trusty spandex snakeskin print shorts underneath. who would have thought that 15 years later i'd be regressing back to my elementary school fashion- we weren't allowed to wear shorts that were shorter than where our fingertips hits our thighs while our arms were against our sides... so, i started a "trend" in which i'd wear bike shorts underneath crazy short shorts in order to pass the rule. long story short, my shitty vice principal made a new rule that we couldn't wear bike shorts underneath real shorts, and my ingenuity was crushed.

well, i suppose i should get back to editing photos and keep listening to my seriously awesome neighbor playing classic rock on his guitar.

too many amazing things happening right now to include in a single blog post! it's been a truly incredible week.

1. i took my boyfriend surprise skydiving for his birthday yesterday. we've both wanted to do it since we were little, so it was an absolutely magical day. jumping out of an airplane is the best thing i've ever done. i cannot WAIT to do it again. it's the most natural, amazing, relaxing, beautiful experience that i've ever had... i wasn't nervous at ALL- it was pure excitement and euphoria. i am officially addicted to skydiving.

2. i am putting in my 30 day notice at my studio AND my apartment tomorrow... because i just signed a new lease for my DREAM apartment in echo park, which i will be working from home in. i can't wait to post photos- it's truly the most magical place i've ever seen, with a view of the lake and a rooftop overlooking the lake for me to spend every summer day on top of. this decision has been a hard one for me to make, but i KNOW that it's the right choice- i am too in love with nature to be spending so much time in downtown los angeles. i will be running crystallized from home again, but i could not be happier about it.

well, that was a whole lot of personal-non-fashion-related news... but sometimes (always) i use my blog to vent.

oh, check out my amazing friend nicki's blog to see her post about being a hand model for unearthen yesterday! she does have ridiculously pretty hands. wish i'd been there yesterday to see you in action, nicki!

*vintage tank, vintage cut-off shorts, jeffrey campbell boots, vintage belt

i'm blonde again!! YES! it's been a long and painful road, but my hair savior, bailey, came to my rescue and turned my wack bleach job into strands of gold! i can't ever afford to drop a couple hundred bucks on my hair, so i always end up in my bathroom attempting to bleach my own hair... i'm not very responsible.

these were taken yesterday- we always take a drive up to the mountains while i'm in fresno because it's SO gorgeous... and there's a little old lady who sells the most badass mexican jewelry on the side of the road in a tiny mountain town, so it's become a new tradition to drive up there and raid her jewels as much as possible.

off to work... right after i chug this coffee.

printed pants courtesy of someday's lovin, wasteland silk tie dye blouse, vintage vest, garment district shoes, vintage bag, annie costello brown triangle bracelet, unearthen prism ring, unearthen vial necklace with pacific ocean, braided stainless steel band handmade by my grandfather whom passed away before i was born

as i was drinking my coffee in bed this morning, a delivery man smiled at me through my window and held up a package with my name on it. completely confused and in nothing but a butt-grazing sweater, i groggily opened the door and signed for a package that i was not expecting. inside was a neatly wrapped package consisting of these super rad printed pants, and a really gorgeous blouse that i can't wait to wear. someday's lovin' totally surprised me with these items, and they definitely hit the nail on the head- i'll be wearing both of them all the time.
i love their perfect 60's/70s/western vibe... it's totally my jam.
oh, and did i mention they have seriously cool carpet bags? shop here!

sold a few things at wasteland today so i picked up this AMAZING sleeveless tie dyed silk top... i have a feeling this is going to be a definite summer staple. i love layering button up blouses with slouchy sweaters or off the shoulder shirts... the proportions are so fun to mess with.
