minimal effort

I’m working part-time now for my stepdad at his sign shop, where it’s usually really cold and I tend to get kind of dirty, so lately on work days my look has been less about style and more about being comfortable and wearing things that I don’t have to be delicate with.  So these days it’s a lot of leggings, Frye boots, and sweaters layered over little boys’ Hanes undershirts.  Today’s outfit was another variation on that theme:

Hips & Hair sweatshirt, Earnest Sewn jeans made into cutoffs half a decade ago, Prince of Thieves sweater leggings, Frye engineer boots, Forever 21 watch.

Yeah…I barely even put on makeup anymore right now.  I still want to wear stuff that appeals to me, though, so I’ve been looking for sweatshirts and sweaters that are easy to throw on in the morning.  When I found this raglan by Hips & Hair over the weekend at Unique L.A., I kind of couldn’t resist it.  It’s clearly me.


I really love the print and it’s super soft.  I got one two sizes too big because I like to wear things loose.  I always like to support small indie designers and I had never heard of these guys before so I was stoked to come across them — they have a lot of rad stuff.  I’m feeling this “CVLT Venice” tank too.

Between working at the sign shop in the mornings and sewing and making jewelry (I have some really cute new stuff going up soon!), my hands are just a mess these days.  I’m trying to tell myself that if my nails look nice it must mean I’m not working hard enough, but that OPI “Gettin Miss Piggy With It” red glitter nail polish in my bathroom cabinet is calling my name.

peg bundy, c’est moi

If yesterday I was overdressed for absolutely no reason, today I am Peg Bundying it super hard.  So hard I even drew myself a Peggy-style cigarette with three inches of ash.

Thakoon for Target sweater, leggings from the Compton swapmeet, GoJane velvet loafers.

I might be the only “fashion” blogger online who is just willingly throwing my cameltoe out there for everyone.  But lately I just can’t even care.  If someone else has issues with the contours of my vagina through my leggings then frankly that’s their problem.  It’s raining outside and I’m lazy and I’d rather have a little bit of ‘toe showing than be in, like, sweats that say JUICY on the butt.

Just realized you can totes see my black underwear through these leggings too.  I am so high fashion.
