now i know at this point in time, you are probably scratching your head and asking yourself, is that what i think i is? an outfit of the day post? but these are so few and far in between! why yes, yes folks it is. and taken none other than my fabulous mother who obviously has some fashion blogging photography skills to boot! currently snuggled under the covers in malibu, but thought to share these snapshots from yesterday that we took before heading out to santa monica pier. really loved the pier in all its kitchy canival-tastic glory. didn't get a chance to indulge in cotton candy or ride the mighty mouse but i am saving that for next time, with the idea in mind that it would definitely make an insanely adorable day trip with *that special someone*. feels sort of like a retro fantasy dream. visited the getty villa yesterday as well, which was impressive to say the least, so will be posting some more photos of the touristy variation soon! not too much else to report, except for sunshine, surf, and warm weather. heading out to LA today, and crossing my fingers that i will love it out there.
and now on to the more important and pressing details of this post: the anatomy of this outfit. finally got my hands on a light denim circle skirt from american apparel, which i picked up in santa barbara a few days ago. paired it with this fabulous fred perry gingham top, super cute kitty face tights from oasap.com and my trusty aldo wedges which i wear so often, they have stretched out and now cause me to trip at really convenient times while trying to give off the illusion of being graceful. threw my beyond retro tote over my shoulder, and was good to go. i call this my modern wizard of oz look. it's sort of the love child of a rockabilly babydoll and a fred perry clad skinhead chick all tied together with a pretty dorothy gale aesthetic. what's that you say? dorothy wore blue? irrelevant!
any suggestions for where to eat and shop in la?
