Apparently this was a July of auburn hair. The red was on it’s way out and the blonde & the bleaching lifted it to this almost auburn color. Not all the time between bleach and red did I have the best of my hair, but I’ve always liked how mellow this looked with that typical salt crystal in every bedroom picture I take. And let me tell you, that the halfway off my bed shoots were always some of my favorites over time. Just like the back of my Shop For Days business cards. Well, I came back to change some of the writing of this post before I push forward with the next one, so for now just know that eventually all of this will have paid off, & I’m proud to be sitting here now working on another piece to post. So basically these were the now ‘customized’ painted jeans that my friend, Julian, helped me wreck with paint (maybe acrylic) and even got a good hand-print shaped green splatter near my ass, that one was artsy. Originally these pants were not mine, but they were given to me by my ex-girl, actually. And of course, the bleached t-shirt that Zoey, another friend of mine, had done herself. She bleached the dopamine molecule into the front of this black crop top. Loved it, wanted it, and I gave up to her my Hustlers tube top because it looked better on her than me. Check this out, I wonder if she still has it honestly. That’s a good quality question. Generally speaking, I’m thankful for both of these things here but you have no idea how cycling works of my closet without understanding the hitting the hilt with different timing, thing. Seriously, I’ll get better at coordinating these things, working on them one day to the next, at a time. So that’s pretty much how I work, for real. For now, you go, girl! Red sneakers, I thought these were perfect for me as a blogger. I actually got the shoes from Josh’s place, he let me help him organize this ex-girl’s old clothes of hers that he still had.Continue reading
“So I’ve got edges that scratch, and sometimes I don’t got a filter. But I’m so tired of eating all my misspoken words… I know my disposition gets confusing,” – Banks, Beggin For Thread
Banks is one of my current favorite artists. My favorite song by her is Trainwreck, but the song Beggin For Thread is so iconic! So I was listening to her Goddess album while I was trying to decide what to do next for a blog outfit. Finally I got the idea! Mostly I wanted to use the new goodies I got from Mirina Collections, but I also kind of wanted to stay casual. So I whipped up this look, denim on denim, kinda raw and if you notice the fact that all of it is ripped/distressed/cut then that’s a good observation. That’s why I used Beggin For Thread as a name. The lyric is “You got me beggin for thread to sew this hole that you ripped in my head,” and I don’t actually have any holes in my head that can be fixed with thread, but I thought it was interesting that I was listening to this as I was uploading this shoot to my laptop. My jeans are ripped, my jacket is distressed, and I chopped my tank top in half jaggedly like 4 years ago. And I added a blingy Mirina Collections necklace, and the look was complete!! I’m so happy with how it ended up. I took a bold statement blingy necklace, threw it on with some destroyed clothing and I felt so bomb. The look is bomb! Now finally I’m going to show it to y’all.
So I’ve posted about things my stepmom gave me before, for example this Red Shirt post, and she gave me a bunch of little things in the past couple weeks so I thought I’d have a little miscellaneous post of a bunch of fun things for you guys. Let’s start with what she gave me first a couple weeks ago, a pair of bracelets that she found at Goodwill that are super sparkly. I love thrifting for this reason.
Don’t mind my cat scratches on the top of my hand, lol! So sparkly with no gems missing, they’re gold with crystals all along the top. So pretty.
