Bottle of Beer

I like pretty things. Pretty things that include...

Floral Doc Martens, a motley mix of feminine grunge.

Maps with meaningful messages.

Making funny faces. Cheer up emo kid, black lipstick ain't so bad!

The knitwear genius of Yokoo.

People who wear Luella blazers from the Ghost World collection.

Pics from Rockie Nolan, Bleed for Fashion, my photobooth, Yokoo, Face Hunter.

After months of searching, I got those Doc Martens from a seller on Craigslist. They're easily my favorite wearable thing I own. And I love that blazer!

Christina said...

You actually look amazing in black lipstick. Wow. It's one of those things that I've always dismissed as ridiculous and attention-whoring, but seriously, girl. You work it.

Casey said...

I would probably give away an organ to get some floral Docs.

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

Faux Naif said...

ooh i want floral docs so badly. and you oddly manage to make black lipstick look minimally emo and maximally (?) chic. well done.

Louise said...

I love all these things too! I had a pair of docs like that when I was a kid. Sadly my stupid feet grew loads and they are long gone...

diane said...

Nice list. I like the button detailing on your leggings. Also digging the map.

Krystal said...

the floral docs are still my favorites ever!

harps said...

ahh I almost bought that blazer. Now I regret not doing so every time I see it!

rebecca said...

oh man when i was a kid i wanted those floral doc martens sooooo bad and my mom bought them for me and i never ever wore them because they were so stiff uncomfortable!!! i felt so bad because they were so expensive! wish i still had em...although they probably wouldn't even fit :)
