COULD LIFE BE ANY CRAZIER??? i feel like i've aged 10 years in the past 2 months. every time i look in the mirror i see a new wrinkle. it's scary and i hate it and i just want to be a stupid teenager again.

besides my quarter life crisis, i'm also working night and day with madeline to get TUNNEL VISION up and running. we've had to delay our launch from december 1st to december 9th because, as she recently wrote on her blog, we have both had a ton of mental collapses and we're just basically burnt out. to make up for launching late, we joined up with Chictopia to be part of their '12 days of chic' shopping experience. all prices have been discounted just for this program, so check it out here!

the thanksgiving break did help my mental state, although it wasn't necessarily relaxing... i picked up a dog on the side of the 5 freeway while on my way to my parent's house... thankfully found said dog a home, THEN while in my hometown, got a picture text from a friend of a dog who was in the shelter and was going to be put down 3 days later if someone didn't adopt it.... so i did.
meet my new child, Belka. she's named after the soviet space dogs. if you're an animal fanatic like i am, you will love this youtube video. dogs in spacesuits. it can't get more perfect.
she has a crooked ass smile, a snaggle tooth, and looks like a hybrid of a dingo/deer/coyote. she's awesome.

the ONLY things i've been doing lately are:

1. working on TUNNEL VISION with madeline, which is launching in exactly 15 days!! (holy shit!) we just finished our look book shoot and i'm completely obsessed with it. so much to do... we're basically zombies.
"like" tunnel vision on facebook and follow us on twitter!! discount codes await you.

2. listening to the jesus and mary chain. seriously. those two things. that's it. oh, and sometimes watching breaking bad. gotta get my meth stories in there somewhere.

GLORIFIED PAJAMAS

*TUNNEL VISION vintage sheer blouse, vintage chartreuse crushed velvet leggings, Dolce Vita gifted boots, vintage jewelry, TUNNEL VISION vintage triangle ring, UNEARTHEN pendulum ring, vial necklace, and pyramid watch, vintage deadstock sunnies.

i basically live in these chartreuse crushed velvet leggings... and yes, i DO wear them as pants and i DON'T care if it offends anyone. as long as leggings don't show every single crease in your body, i think they make perfectly suitable pants. or maybe i'm just in denial. either way, they're pants to me. i had on an equally bright Tunnel Vision tie-dyed thermal, but upon walking outside realized that it was actually weird and warm and muggy, so opted for this flouncy blouse thing instead.

dolce vita was kind enough to send me the pair of boots pictured above... coincidentally, i've been looking for a pair of flat lace up light brown boots... so i'm pretty stoked on these- not to mention they're incredibly comfortable. i'm a huge wuss and refuse to wear anything remotely uncomfortable when i know i have a lot of walking to do. so in conclusion, these are my new walkin' boots.
i think these would be pretty perfect for the job as well...Screen shot 2011-11-10 at 8.35.31 PM

***

if you haven't done so already, be sure to follow me and madeline's upcoming store TUNNEL VISION on twitter, and "like" us on facebook. we officially have 20 days left until we launch, and we're equal parts terrified and excited. we have SO MUCH work ahead of us, but it's definitely coming together like we wanted it to...
anyway, twitter followers and facebook friends will receive a crazy discount code before we open... just putting that out there.

i found a joint a minute ago so i'm way too into listening to revolver to write anything in depth about what i'm wearing... i suck at posting regularly... tunnel vision is coming in 3 weeks... i want to live in this leather bustier... it's cold in LA... my cat sleeps in a plastic ikea bag... i read about ayahuasca and floating temples today... vintage deadstock sunglasses rule. fin.
