NIGHT RIDER

*faux leather jacket c/o Sheinside w/ Kill City patches which i added, faux crocodile bag c/o Heather Belle Co, vintage Jesus and Mary Chain t-shirt from my amazing friend Neal, faux leather pants from Urban Outfitters given to me 4+ years ago, Vagabond boots given to me by Madeline.

ahhh, it feels good to be brunette again!
this is how i have been dressing 99.5% of the time. ever since my recent acquisition of perfect faux leather pieces, i've been completely unable to stop wearing them... 
example a: this faux leather jacket from sheinside. i had been wearing this one for the past year, but it's cropped length and sleeves were never quite right. i'm absolutely in love with the ever so slightly oversized fit of my new one, not to mention the metal zipper details, pockets, and large collar. i am ridiculously freakishly obsessed with bikers and biker clothing, so it's a no brainer that i jumped at the chance to have a shitload of motorcycle/drug/party/anarchist themed Kill City patches and have happily been sewing them onto this jacket, creating my very own personalized motorcycle jacket. it's still a work in progress.
i am finally completely immersed in living a minimalistic lifestyle with clothing. no more giant hauls at thrift stores with a bunch of crap that's "kinda cool". i have been making very rare and thought-out purchases of either extremely special vintage pieces, vegan pieces, or Kill City threads, since i'm there and surrounded by the awesomeness so often. getting dressed has been much more enjoyable since downsizing, and i'm feeling very "me" lately, which is always good.

You're just kind of perfect, I don't even know.

Though I am now suddenly feeling a lot less squeamish of my oversized fake leather jacket...

I love the idea of buying for quality in a well thought out way, instead of for quantity just because its so easy to find tons of awesome things at thrift stores. im trying to transition to a more minimal lifestyle, i think today is a good day to sort through clothes to find stuff to donate! thanks for the inspiration :)
your hair looks amazing btw :3

I love how you wear so much leather and crocodile skin and stuff and it's all vegan! That's so good! I always see people go like, "ew, and it's not even real leather/fur" and I'm like "um okay that's awesome, not bad" so it's AWESOME that you're rocking the vegan stuff. Hope you have/had an awesome time in San Fran :)

Hey Brit!!
Have you seen The Warlocks message?

"More trivia coming soon but right now we need your help. The Warlocks need help with album artwork! We have a few candidates including Steve Quenell who did the artwork Heavy Deavy Skull Lover but we want to look at new stuff too. Should be in the theme of psychedelica or something like that. Please send serious artwork submissions to thewarlocks@gmail.com for the band to look over! Here is your chance to be on worldwide release. Yes, there is pay too! Share and like please!"

I think you're good with this psychedelic-photoshopped stuff! You should try to make some art for them! :-)

Kisses! M.
