nananana na na nana can't touch this


I'm backkkkkkkk~. Or rather, inspiration is.





1st Top: Silk blouse, vintage
2nd Top: Three Stooges Shirt, Another Man's Treasure Vintage
Sequin Jacket: LYD vintage
MC Hammer Pants: Vintage handmedown
Sneakers: Foot Locker
Accessories: Gift, Thrift, Vintage

Also... I thought people might want to point and laugh. I've already done so at myself for about an hour, so wooooo!

video

Mmmm I love being awkward in front of thousands of people. My asian smile = charming you forever, I know.

Today I dressed like this out of spite of trends. This outfit has pretty much everything I like: absurdity, loud colors, obnoxiousness, hammer pants, and shiny. Lots of shiny. I've been dressing in all black, drapey, deconstructured and lace this week so it was a welcome change. Also, I'm getting these glasses with a prescription soon (my current pair fail at everything) so yes. Preview time?

Also, Jaime: I DANCED FOR YOU. GIVE ME YOUR I.D DAMN YOU!

I just read over on your sidebar that you're 15. Officially feel the oldest I've ever felt.

No 15 year old should have so much moxy. It's the law I think.
