I'm a life-long Beatles fan...I grew up in a house where my dad played albums on the phonograph, my mother sang songs to us children before bed, and "Here Comes the Sun" was deemed "my song" since before I can remember. I was flipping through some old fashion magazines of mine today, and in a Fashion Rocks issue, I found the best editorial I've seen in a while. Featuring Sasha Pivovarova and Dhani Harrison (George Harrison's son), I was totally drawn in by the furs, the dresses, the free vibe of it. It's right up my alley, and completely inspired my wardrobe for this summer and fall!

It's summertime, and as soon as the grass gets green and the sun comes out to play, I get so inspired with ideas of stuff to make and how to look. Summer hair and makeup, cutoffs, cig-burnt t-shirts, studs, safety pins, chains, homemade dreamcatchers, lace shorts, hi-lo hems. IN LOVE. I got a load of soft, worn in goodies from Goodwill yesterday- butter-soft flannels to bleach, mens silk pajamas to pair with anything, a Navajo blanket to play with and wear as a cape/jacket/poncho thing this fall, worn-in vintage t-shirts that I'll probably burn holes in, a few jeans that I'm preparing to sever later today. A trip to the craft store brought in studs, bleach, packages of RIT dye, and lots of leather cords. For fall, I'm thinking velvet skinnies (which I'll probably make this summer), leather leggings, velvet shorts, flannel dresses from oversized men's shirts, and a boudoir robe as a light jacket.
Projects start today!!
