Sometimes it happens. You don’t eat enough, you go too hard, and you wake up feeling like death incarnate the next morning. We’ve all been there- hangovers are a part of life, for the most of us, after all. And even when you puke in the bathroom of your favorite brunch place (aka me last Saturday) it always helps to at least look decent. I never thought I would be the sort of girl who bought a baseball cap but I had a moment of weakness at Urban Outfitters and had to buy it. I think sober me was looking out for hungover me because let me tell you- it’s an easy way to look put together when you don’t feel it.
I paired this cap with a vintage slip dress from Ivory at Forgotten Feather, a cut out bra from Urban Outfitters, my favorite bucket bag from Zara and loafers from Target.

Happy Monday one and all. I hope all my friends celebrating MLK Day are taking it easy, sending out grateful vibes for the amazing man and knowing that it’s up to us to keep his mission and legacy goin’. Today I worked a little, chilled a little and took some photos- of my CUSTOMIZED BIRTH CHART TEE SHIRT!! I came home from vacation to the most beautiful shirt from my #GirlBoss Ruby. The Numinous and YR Store collaborated for these sick tees and I am so excited to wear mine all the time and never take it off.I’m an Aquarius, born in year of the dog and my birth number is 9. This shirt features all that and more- an amethyst for my birthstone, Uranus because it’s my ruling planet and cool blue because it’s my color. Erin Petson designed the shirt and I wish I had words besides “so obsessed” to describe my feelings, but I don’t! It’s super soft, it has all my favorite things, it’s from my favorite job/magazine and it’s personalized to me! Aquarius is the “rebel” and “humanitarian” of the zodiac, a trend setter committed to paving the way for a better world, one weird outfit and idea at a time. Naturally, I wanted to accentuate this along with my love of the cosmos and also wanted add a little bit of party flair. I worked in my DIY painted heels, my trusty star tights from Target, my Deandri choker and my furry jacket from Distrubia (which I like to call my “fashion gorilla” coat). I added in some dark berry lipstick and a bit of sass as a final touch. Alexandra always takes photos that make me feel fabulous and I am so thankful for sharing a birthday with her.

I hated being tiny for a long time, especially when I was growing up in all my pre-pubescent glory. I use to get made fun of for looking like I had an eating disorder and I could never fit into any of the juniors clothing when I was in middle school. I was a late (late, late, late) bloomer and I don’t think I really and truly grew into myself until the past year or two. What does this mean? Embracing the fact that I’m small framed (I’m 5’6 so I’m not that short). What does this mean in terms of fashion? KIDS CLOTHING. And wearing skorts from Goodwill that are size 5 in juniors (whatever that means?) It means saying F*** IT and working what I’ve got- aka no boobs, a butt and love for clothing that verges on the edge of ridiculous. I just finished Viv Albertine’s biography and I’m currently reading Vivienne Westwood’s so I’ve been wearing a lot of plaid and channeling my inner Viv. I think the punks had the right idea by really utilizing fashion as a form of rebellion- they understood the power of a good (and striking) look. In my case, that means some cat tights from Hip Wa Zee, a plaid skort from Goodwill, my favorite new shoes from Target, my trusty denim jacket (with an extra dose of pins) and this amazing choker from Valfre. This may be one of my favorite outfits I’ve ever worn, simply because it made me feel powerful, confident and like I could kick the world in the butt. As always, photos by the amazing twin Alexandra.
