|blouse - mom's closet // shorts - aa // boots - vintage|
I just got back from a whirlwind 36 hours in Los Angeles. I had been missing my mom lately, so I caught a last-minute ride on Craigslist to surprise her for Mother's day. My dad was in on it, and made sure they were at my favorite taco truck in Echo Park at the appointed time. I walked up and my mom totally freaked out! And then she bought me tacos!
The neighborhood looks different every time I go back. This freaky boutique is called The Dog Show; it opened in February just a few blocks from my old apartment. The stock is half the store's eponymous line of mostly neon spandex separates, and vintage in the 80s-90s acid-wash, punky-beach-bum vein... not really my aesthetic, but the space is amazing, and I still walked out with a black denim miniskirt. Don't underestimate my ability to shop anywhere...I've bought clothes from the dryclceaners that other people left behind.
