pretending i live in an actual city

In the summer, I teach children’s theatre. While I was home on break, my neighbor announced on Facebook that she was giving away a massive box of children’s costumes, and I bolted over there. Not only did I procure a preponderance of props for my young thespians, I found this jacket in the bottom of the box. Genuine leather. I sincerely hope she meant to give it away and won’t come asking for it back.

I couldn’t decide which scarf I preferred, so I’ve interspersed two different photosets. Comment and state your preference!

Two rings for $3 at Battery Street Jeans.

My mom wore stuff like this when she was pregnant with me. Yes, in the early ’90s. Somehow I’ve internalized it.

I really, really like slouchy materials with crisper ones. The metallic rings contrast the baggy sweater nicely. And the leather pulls it all together.

I bought jeggings. Secondhand jeggings, at that. Let’s face it, though: I was already wearing leggings as pants; this is the natural next step.


This scarf is admittedly slightly ratty, but it photographs really well.

I’m in love with these textures together.

It’s a pretty cool scarf.

You get some music today! Because most of this outfit is from Battery Street Jeans, I’ll post songs I first heard there. They spin some really excellent music.

I aspire to be a bright-eyed girl in a big city, even though I wear glasses and live in what amounts to a hole in the ground.

      1. I don’t know if it’s valuable – if it’s actually from China, or by a designer, and at least 30 years old, you might have a nice piece of valuable vintage on your hands. But really, I was asking because I WANTS IT. I WANTS IT, MY PRESCIOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
