My God, I Need Sleep
I’m back from San Fran with one night of sleep in my own bed under my belt. You would think that would be enough. You would be wrong — I now need a nap to recover from my vacation. It would probably help if Lila didn’t insist on rubbing her cat love-drool on me at 4:30 am but it’s such a part of home, I didn’t mind too terribly. Here, while I doze off, I’ll show you a few pics of the spoils of war:
Kera, Fudge and Female magazines from Japantown’s bookstore. Kera showcases punk, goth and Lolita fashion with a section of street style snaps. Fudge is basically high fashion as done by your very chic, preppy teenage neighbor. Female is a sewing magazine with patterns included — very basic patterns, but a lot of potential for customization, assuming I can understand the pattern sheet enough to trace them out.
I would totally wear these clothes. I’m not sure what that says about me, other than I have no style and I’m stuck at age five.
Fudge is probably closer to what I’d wear assuming I had any fashion sense whatsoever. I already have the dark short-shorts, just need a striped tee to pair with them. Also, I’m in love with this skirt:
I bought Female mainly for the sailor collar blouse on the left:
I also picked up 2 yards of this awesome fabric from Mendel’s in the Haight. I’ve seen this print before but not in the black/white/pink/gray colorway:
Then I got these steampunk buttons, also from Mendel’s. I only bought 2 of each because I don’t really know what I’ll do with them.
From Cheap Thrills in the Haight, I picked up a bunch of patches:
I’m gonna slap these on anything that holds still long enough. I know, they’re so cliche but who cares?
I forgot the best part of the whole trip….getting to see friends we don’t see nearly often enough.
Yay for hanging with my peeps!
