upon making my list of clothes to take to california (so difficult!), i decided i needed one party dress, one black dress, one white dress, and one mixed color dress. i've chosen a free people dress that will no doubt appear on this blog-- it's beautiful and embroidered and just perfect-- a black urban dress with lace detail, the dress below from nastygal, and a thrifted nineties minidress with khaki, gingham, and sunflower details.
the dress i'm wearing in these pictures is so comfortable. it's so comfy that i can pair it with a hat in ninety-degree weather and still be cool and ready to go. i'll probably pile vintage vests and necklaces on top in the cooler weather, adding tights and keeping hats tightly attached to my head.
the cowboy boots i'm sporting are probably my favorite find from ragstock. although the store unfortunately carries limited stock online and only has stores in the midwest, it's absolutely worth the trip for their cowboy boots, wide arrange of unique sunglasses, used clothing, new clothing, vintage hippie wear... you name it, chances are, they've got it. they even carry gorilla suits. it's crazy stuff! i love it.
i'll leave you with a little gogol bordello, which i listened to during shooting these pictures. enjoy!
