Bring back twinning.
Double the style means double the fun, and double the trouble.
So throw on that pleated skirt with your varsity jacket and form a girl gang.
Meet us in the library.

I recently discovered (through the magic that is Tumblr of course) a soon to be released jacket by Alex Ordonez. A simple cardigan in silhouette, the phrase "Everything is Confusing At This Point" is boldly printed in white on the black of the piece. What draws me to this item specifically is the truth of it. Yes, everything is confusing at the point; growing up is a difficult manner to grasp and so is personal style (so you might catch me in this jacket in a few days or weeks).
But there is of course a drawback to the "personalization" of clothing items, this being the somewhat ridiculous markup percent (can you tell I go to FIDM?). Of course these items are not worth the high prices, but because of whoever made them, or the hype, they now cost almost the same as designer creations. This gives us the option of taking the DIY route. Grabbing a denim or varsity jacket at a thrift store and some materials at say Michael's is a much cheaper alternative than scouring online or hitting the streetwear shops. And well, the possibilities for design are of course endless.
But whatever you decide, Warning: Graphic Style Content.

Somewhere in the smoggy hills of LA's Griffith Park lays an abandoned zoo that used to house everything from lions to monkeys. Call it what you want in its current state, it now features a visual wonderland of graffiti and decaying structures that are equal parts cool and spooky. You can even make your way into some of the old cages and buildings by holes created in the fence, what's adventure without a little bit of danger? Though the only danger in this case might be getting a cut from the jagged iron edges. Nonetheless, this is certainly a cool location for a day time trip, or to take some out of town visitors for a "weird Los Angeles" experience. And hey, you could also bring some spray paint to test your artistic talent...

I'll let you in on a little secret; sometimes I think we focus too much on "What should we do?". Are we really that afraid of just spending time in a certain place without a planned activity? Or maybe its just that I'm very much a day dreamer and happen to love things like looking over the city from a birds view. Its kind of like that idea that when you're comfortable with someone you don't have to spend every second filling the space with words.

I was originally going to just make this an usual outfit post, but I've been listening to a lot of songs over the past few days, as well as viewing interviews with a few artists that quite frankly really had an impact on me. For example last night I listened to an NPR interview with Earl Sweatshirt in which he described how we wants to only put out quality work that really has a message and content, and how he only recently became "woke", or conscious of his self and surroundings. Although I haven't had any dramatic life relevations myself, or extreme bursts of creativity, I have realized that I myself want to do things I am truly proud of. I don't want to create mediocre results or simply work in this industry, I want to contribute and help others develop their own visions. I also realized that I don't really know what I want to do. I love fashion, and art, and music dearly but I still don't know how I'm going to put all my loves into one. But as are with most good things, I think time will sort that out and hopefully give me some more indication of my strenghts (and weaknesses). In the meantime I'm really yearning to work together with some people here in LA to show off what the new generation can put out.
(Just some of my thoughts for the weekend).
