Instant karma's gonna get you.


I've been obsessed with bleached-out jeans ever since I saw Ali Michael wearing a pair of Habituals in Teen Vogue ages ago. Now I'm excited to experiment with my own DIY pair! Even though I think they could be dressed up quite nicely with perhaps some sequins, I decided to go the casual route with an old sweatshirt and a scarf I knit was I was 10. Don't ask me what Dragon Squadron is supposed to be, I just like the sweater.

Whenever I get bored, I draw stuff that doesn't make sense. Case in point: jaws!

I have no idea why I just posted that picture. I also have no idea why I get so much sick gratification out of watching clips of the Maury Show on youtube. There's no way those stories are real. "Sex for a double cheeseburger?"

Oh my goodness, I LOVE watching Maury clips on youtube and that one is like a bookmark on my home computer...we are obviously soulmates, haha.
ANYWAYS. Great job on the DIY bleached jeans and that little pin on your scarf is just so pretty!
Hope you're having a lovely day :)

ISABEL.
You are seriously my soul mate. My friend and I have late night text sessions that continue for hours, in which we create fictional Maury stories and laugh about them. Might I say, I do a great impression too. "I'm eleven yeas owld and I'm GUNNA have a baybay! I had sex with a 40 year old, ma teacher, and the lunch lady!" and then there are the creepy emo 14 year olds that say hitting their mom is fun.
Anyways...um...
I love how you wear the jeans, it's so original. I prefer Dragon Squardon to a loose white American Apparel tank top or DIY Raquel Agrella (did I get that name right? Meh. Who cares) seam ripping top, any day. Isabel is to Tavi as Erin Wasson is to blogworld.

I figured I better mention you on my blog, after basically stealing your post ideas and putting them on there. I also bleached some denim drainpipes and they came out insanely good. I am now movin ginto tie-dye when it comes through .

OMG. Maury is fucking awesome. It's so pathetic. And ha, I agree with Tavi, me and my friends make up Maury situations too. And I love the jeans, and the sweater... and well, the whole outfit! Dragon Squadron reminds me of some kind of Dragons and Dungeons high school club or something XD
