Feathers and shells

You've probably noticed how there's been this kind of native Pocahontas theme in fashion for the last little while. You know, feathers and beads and dream catchers and leather fringe. Native is the new hippy boho. Whatever it is, these two Sass & Bide dresses are definitely channeling it. I can't even decide which I like better. And the big messy bun is the cherry on top of the cake.

Things I like

Ridiculously long knit sweaters for fall. (via Face Hunter, Ems Edge & Knight Cat)

These Shape Shifter dress shirts - short in the front and long in the back.
(via Studded Hearts & Nasty Gal)

Your boyfriend's dress shirt as a light summer jacket. (via Lina di Moda)

Knots. Love this whole Acne outfit. (via A Fashion Tale)

Full metal bustier? And cowboy hats. And Erin Wasson. (via Fashion Gone Rogue)

Where I've been

I'm back in Amsterdam, have been back since Wednesday. It's been hard re-adjusting, especially after my 2.5 weeks in happy. Before I get back into fashion, which I will, here are the polaroids I promised.

One of the best parts of my trip was wandering around Portland and finding the death to the Pixies t-shirt I've been looking everywhere for (the boyfriend's is too tattered and too big for me). There it was on a hanger all perfect and in my size for 10 bucks at Ray's Ragtime.

And then I got back here and threw it in the wash, not knowing there was a small tub of lip balm in some pocket of some unimportant garment. A small tub of lip balm that subsequently was discovered, empty, after unloading the DRYER. Death to the Pixies, spotted in little oil stains. Heartbreaking. It's not too noticeable, but it bothers me. Possible fix is to put in small vintage-esque rips where the stains are...sigh.

West coast

I've been in 4 cities since the last post - Amsterdam, Montreal, Vancouver and now Portland - haven't had any time to post. I've been busy (and by "busy" I mean "lazing around on various Vancouver beaches and road tripping south") but polaroids are being taken, will continue to be taken and will be scanned in time. Looking forward to the city today and sand dunes and surfers tomorrow. Peace out. xo
