the ripper

I dug through my closet and got rid of enough stuff at Buffalo Exchange to make the UNIF Hellraisers my fall/winter shoe.  They arrived today and they’re amazing — super comfortable, well made, and ridiculously good looking.  I’m stoked on them and they’re going to be a perfect alternative for when I don’t want to wear boots this season.

Girlprops sunglasses, H&M Divided leather jacket, Hippie Speedball tee, Miss Sixty jeans, UNIF shoes, Forever 21 and vintage bracelets, Heritage 1981 scarf.

I’m wearing them with my own Hippie Speedball “Ripper Kitty” t-shirt.  (I’m obsessed with my t-shirts, OK?  They fit so good.)  I like the juxtaposition of the shoes with the ridiculous cat graphic on the tee.


hippie speedball shirts!

I’m so beyond psyched that my HIPPIE SPEEDBALL t-shirts and tanks are finally here! Everything is now up in my Etsy shop.

Getting these shirts out has been a major, major labor of love, but I can’t tell you guys how stoked I am on them.  As you might already know, I illustrated all the graphics myself and picked out what I think are the best cut, softest, coziest shirts to print on.  So these shirts are really a representation of Cartoon Heart style at its finest — especially because I did everything I could to keep them affordable.  Topping out at $30, they’re not super cheap, but they also cost less then any other screened t-shirt of this quality that you’ll find online, I promise.

And also, because I’m so excited about this, you can use the coupon code CARTOON on my Etsy for 10% off anything in the shop through Sunday night!  I’ll post how I’m wearing my shirts soon.

sneak peek

Picked up 3/4 of my Hippie Speedball t-shirts from my screenprinter today! So stoked to show them to you.


Here’s what I wore yesterday…

Forever 21 hat, skirt, and wedges; Käärme t-shirt; Love Culture cardigan.

Can I lay some praise on my girl for a second?  I’ve known Hallie online for an embarrassingly long time. She sent me a couple of her Käärme t-shirts a while back and I’ve been living in them. The graphics are like nothing else out there right now, they’re soft and cut well, and above all I’m stoked to see someone whose blog I and aesthetic I truly love doing something really awesome.  The Kaarme shop is up online and I’m kind of in love with everything.  (How sick is this studded bag?)

never comin back

So here’s the finished product:

I hand-thrashed a bunch of local athletics tees I picked up at area thrift stores — they’re all shredded, studded, burned out and some even have hand embroidery.  I’m pretty obsessed with how they’re turning out.  This one was my first try, and I love it so much I’m keeping it.  What I love about these hand-thrashed t-shirts is how easy they are: you throw them on with jeans and you’re done, but because the shirts are so meticulously detailed it looks like you actually put thought into your outfit. I’m calling this vibe “lazy edgy” and it’s what I’m about right now.

I have a few other ones for sale in my Etsy shop, HiPPiE SPEEDBALL:

I’m working on more that are totally sick too!
