I.N.C. leopard swing coat, Target t-shirt and jeans, vintage cowboy boots, MAC Russian Red lipstick.
I always feel the most like myself when my outfit is a little on the ridiculous side. This morning when I got dressed I was thinking about Exene Cervenka in her cowboy boots and red lipstick on New Year’s Eve. I love that juxtaposition of glammy punk rock and relaxed country, and I think it’s pretty reflective of my personal style these days too.
My vintage rhinestone necklace was a swapmeet find that’s a little outside my normal aesthetic but that I really love, especially paired with casual stuff. The mink jawbone necklace is from Skullery and was a Christmas gift from my roommate and heterosexual life partner Farron. They’re not normally things I’d think to wear together, but I like the way the V-shape of the mink jaw kind of echoes the V-shape of the rhinestone necklace.
I picked up these old black Joe Sanchez cowboy boots a few years ago at a vintage store in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, while I was on a rowdy 1o-day jaunt across the South that included my making heart-shaped eyes at Unknown Hinson at the Star Bar in Atlanta and being thrown out of a Waffle House off the I-75 at 3:30 in the morning. I love them not only because they are the perfect pair of basic cowboy boots, but also because they remind me of being 21 and partying all over Georgia with a bunch of awesome people I haven’t seen since.

Sartorially, not having a job is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because you never really have to dress up for anything. It’s a curse for the same reason. So many heels unworn for so long! So many dresses left hanging empty on the rack! Eventually I start feeling the burn of fashion ennui and end up putting on something completely inappropriate for the (non-)occasion, as was the case today, when I wore this outfit to…the office supply store:
H&M Divided sweater, GoJane glasses and platforms, Forever 21 skirt and tights.
Heart-print tights and goofy glasses add a little levity to what could be construed as a more Serious Outfit than how I wanted this to come off. Sometimes a girl just has to wear her scalloped six inch platforms to pick up a stapler and some cardstock, you know?

I’m a secretary (and also a closet nerd). Sometimes it’s fun to dress the part.
These glasses aren’t prescription, but they do help with the glare coming off my computer screen, which is a much bigger headache than it sounds like. Plus they look cute, so why should the myopic girls get to have all the fun? I know a lot of people talk shit on clear specs, but I don’t really care.
Glasses, hair chopsticks, and Breckelle’s aqua suedette platforms from the Del Amo indoor swapmeet, skull-print scarf from Olvera Street in downtown L.A., H&M white shirt, American Apparel pencil skirt and bandeau.
