hello from portland! we snapped these photos in northern california about 8 hours into our drive, with 7 hours left to go. it's cold and rainy and grey here and i'm beyond excited to get back to blue skies and warm weather! however, the cheap food, no sales tax, and endless bar options are pretty sweet.

*versace x h&m pants, tank from wackos, vintage deadstock sunnies, vintage jacket, DIY tie dyed converse, vintage necklace (xmas present from madeline!), unearthen sphere ring, purse c/o STELA 9

all of my favorite things crammed into one post. madeline told me that these versace x h&m PALM TREE PANTS existed, and i immediately went on ebay and purchased them for 30 bones, as they are the most perfect things i've ever seen, ever. it's astonishing how many middle aged men and children tell me that they love these pants, in a non-creepy way... almost like, they want to own the pants for themselves. weird, right?
been wanting to tie dye converse for so long, finally just DID it. need to dye them again but they're pretty sweet thus far.

STELA 9 sent me this insanely gorgeous bag which was hand crafted in guatemala (available for purchase here). the 2012 line is soon to be up on shop bop and nasty gal, and trust me when i say you guys are going to love every single bag in this collection. the look book is so so perfect... it makes me yearn to be traveling in southern mexico or bali (as if i don't dream about this enough already)... sigh. here's my favorite image from the look book... i highly recommend checking out the whole thing here, and keeping an eye out for the line to launch!

*LAMB & FLAG t-shirt, TUNNEL VISION vintage DIY dip dye pants, TUNNEL VISION vintage pendleton bag, Vagabond boots, vintage coat, vintage jewelry, UNEARTHEN sphere ring

lamb & flag was kind enough to send me a box of goodies a couple weeks back. they have a ton of super affordable basics, including this top. i am obsessed with, but have a severe lack of, slouchy/sheer/oversized/worn-in white t-shirts. this one fits the bill nicely. madeline and i dip dyed these vintage jeans for the shop- what do you guys think? they aren't perfect as they were our first attempt, but i REALLY dig them. madeline gave me a shit ton of bindis, so that's what's on my forehead if you were trying to decide between that or a new mole.

as far as tunnel vision goes:
i'm SO sorry for the lack of updates! madeline has been keeping up with questions much better than i have. basically, we were rushing and pushing ourselves past our limits, therefore losing our excitement, creativity, and motivation. we've slowed down the pace to ensure that we don't launch it just to launch something... i'd rather take a little bit longer and do it right- not give you guys something half-assed. we can't thank you enough for all of the ongoing support, excitement, and questions... we are still extremely excited and are working constantly to get it going! at the absolute latest, we'll be up and running by the first week of January.

*boots c/o palladium, vintage suede pants hemmed into shorts, vintage harley davidson tshirt w/ cut off sleeves from wasteland, vintage tie dye cardigan, beanie from jetrag, unearthen pendulum ring, abalone shell ring from mexico, vintage belt from seattle, vintage army bag

it's december 9th and i'm pretty sure it's 75 degrees outside. it's warm enough that i literally threw off this beanie and cardigan when i walked inside and violently unplugged my heater. i don't understand how people live in *actual* winter weather. i'd be curled up in front of a heater crying all day.

upon browsing the palladium site, i came across these radical things:

i think i need them. i've been in a very sneaker kind of mood the past few weeks... and i don't own a single pair. this needs to change.

speaking of radical things, please allow me to introduce you to MY DREAM PANTS.

jeremy scott pill leggings. trust me when i say that i would wear these every single day of my life. if only i had the funds to invest $350 in drug pants. first world problems.

*thrifted pants, OBEY tank, thrifted DKNY boots, vintage bag, vintage jewelry, unearthen opal sphere ring, vintage necklace, TUNNEL VISION triangle ring, vintage deadstock sunnies

wore this to lunch with madeline and taylor and flashed ample amounts of side boob (and maybe whole boob) throughout the day. had taylor tie up the back of my shirt so i could eat food without exposing myself in public. awkward fitting flared paisley pants are my new favorite thing. i actually wanted to design 3/4 length flared pants six months ago, so this temporarily fills that void. speaking of design, we had an amazing BAD VIBES fitting today... we're so close to finally having our own line!!!!!! fucking exciting. hope you guys like couch fabric and faux leather as much as we do.

gotta get back to uploading TUNNEL VISION product and blasting oasis while madeline gets cuddle-attacked by three dogs on my couch.
