You can’t touch that

That was the resounding response when I asked all y’all if I should slash my Expo 86 shirt to pieces.

Thank you for stopping me. I was comfortable taking the risk of DIY-ing a pair of vintage jeans to death, but with a shirt I’d been looking for ever since my brother refused to give me his? That would be tragic.

Of all the bracelets I wore it with, the big silver (well, aluminum) one has the most sentimental value (not actual value, obviously). I bought it in Playa del Carmen because it has the Mayan calendar imprinted on it.

Then there are my DKNY acid wash jean cut-offs which my friend (and colleague) Sonja made me buy while we were shopping during lunch one day. Ahhh peer pressure.

    Anyone who wears slouchy boots in the summer, with cut-off denim shorts, is my best friend. I don this look all the time. As always, looking gorgeous! :)
