Guatemalan Textile Bomber

Lots of life must have lived in this jacket antecedent to it finding me, I envisage the long haul drudgery of looped woven stitches to it’s finalization and distribution. My mind wonders trickling across thrift clothing and self perception. For example,  If you wear a white coat that you believe belongs to a doctor, your ability to pay attention increases sharply. But if you wear the same white coat believing it belongs to a painter, your attention span may differ. I love the idea of trying to figure out why when we put on certain clothes, the affects of our mood & basic abilities shift. This is my perception & aesthetic w/ this jacket, some worn pieces say a lot without saying anything at all.

I bought my ostentatious bomber jacket from Resale Folds, one of my favorite treasured thrift shops to shop – ask for Lucia & Jesse. They both own & restock all items w/ detailed vision alongside infectious personalities you will not be able to stir away from, genuinely prodigious human beings. This magnum opus is a beautiful vibrant vintage handmade Guatemalan textile patchwork style bomber jacket. Its a unisex multicolored stripes and pattern weave background, cotton batwing long sleeve w/ a front zipper, stand up collar, ribbed knit cuffs, two inset pockets, rib knit elastic waist band, boxy shoulder fit and some neon love.

I made usage of comparable color scheme scarf I owned which is actually a knot-wrap for gift wrapping from Lush. For the past years, this has been my “go to” buying most of these wraps turning them into head scarfs. I gelled my front hair, throwing the rest of it in a rivet messy half ponytail as coupling my curls hanging out whimsically.

I wore light weight beige thermal underneath, standard blue jeans adjacent to Converse Chuck Taylor multi-colored sequin sneakers with upper a reflective patch and a cushioned insole. Kept the jewelry light wearing only my gold hoop earrings, cat eyeliner, mauve nude lipstick from MAC Cosmetics (I can’t remember the shade) zing green eyeshadow from Jane Cosmestics in the inner tear dot for that pop of radiance & highlight.  Closing out the outfit, I clinched a large pin across the collar to keep that up-right effect w/out having to “pop my collar” consistently – worked like a charm!

In the clouds

I just adore this outfit, reverencing straightforward it was a must have at first sight type deal for me. Although, theres an avalanche of ways I could/can style this outfit, with its image and central colors I appointed to designate the approach of a playful structure while still sustaining an adolescent appearance. The atmospheric climate conditions was on point as I voice to convey the importance on this being how it affects how to clothe, bundle up, swathe & array yourself before stepping outdoors, am I right?

I wore a dreamy Lazy Oaf  Boilersuit I caught on sale half off.  You reign in this dope snug sky blue peached cotton fabric long sleeve jumpsuit that has a pointed collar, front button closures with a twinin’ waist belt. The cut is loose fitted smoothly straight down to a tapered leg cut, pockets at the hips and all over custom cloud print.

I snatched my hair into a bun adding a coral, fuchsia, salmon, blush flush rose scrunchy. The jewelry was kept mildly delicate to not veneer the suit. Ok so ..I did leave my house w/ shoes on my feet (as will see on the last picture below) but I had show the ostentation of these sky blue ankle socks that have an all over heart and ruffle deetz that look cute AF as it enclosed & completes my provisions.

Away with summer in with fall,  brisk transitions clinching onto the final sun beams, skin felt burnt rays and shimmering golden days mother nature still has to offer.

The message behind the designs are meant to feel empowering, break social stigmas, promote unity and encourage people to recognize their own innate resilience.

 Being my t-shirt the main attire staple for the outfit,  secondary to a superior completion I wore my dark brown BDG vintage inspired slouchy high-rise mom pants in a super cozy corduroy. High-rise waist with a straight, relaxed leg that tapers in at the ankle. Finished with 4 pockets & a button-topped zip fly.

In addition paired together, threw on simplistic chuck taylor classics, hiked up white socks, gold heart shaped bamboo earrings, tiger eye bracelets and gold accessorized rings.  As for my hair mixing eras, I styled it into timeless victory rolls using a old scarf I cut up to compliment the look.

Dolls Kill

Quick back story:  Tracing back to the spring time when I took a “girl’s trip” w/ a friend to Los Angeles. Mid-day on our way to cram & ingest brunch, cruising down LA’s boulevards in our rent-a-car we stumbled across a Dolls Kill store. Sudden gasp, all in awe’s among some mean eyeballing as we drove by, we both shouted “we gotta go there.” If you aren’t familiar w/ the brand,  Dolls Kill is an online boutique featuring a rebellious spirit and attitude, mixed with a bit of punk rock, goth, glam and festival fashion. As for those who know me, I mean those who really know me – know I’m always a punk kid at heart!

After digesting down & devouring brunch we made our way to the freshly new opened store in LA located on 415 N. Fairfax. Apace of pride, I strode away leaving w/ two staple pieces I can wear multiudinous ways.  These two staples being inspiration for my outfit involves and strictly revolves around a O-ring choker bull charm with a buckle closure and captain hat with a vinyl bill. Now, lets fast forward to present time where I accoutre everything in sync.

Aiming for more of a militant image, I assimilated a sleek yet simple all black garments. I gathered my thrifted belt, mid high wasted jeans and sleeveless black bodysuit in ribbed stretched jersey with a mock turtleneck and lined gusset with snap fasteners for that secure strapped in feel.

To execute the fit, I wore a pair of faux leather knee-high combat boots featuring a round toe, lace-up closure, side zipper, and buckle strap detail. My black skull earrings are from Tarina Tarantino. I just love her jewelry, very costume like and these classic  Memento Mori skull and black swarovski crystal detail. My rings & moon ring  are all from a boutique from different parts of Los Angeles.

As for the first outfit on this reoccurrence comeback, unhesitatingly picked up these chambray colored denim bluish linen-blend culottes, in other words – trousers. My eyes drifted in the direction of these calf-length culottes in woven linen-blend fabric. It reaches to wear high waisted, It has a paper-bag waistband, adjustable belt, side pockets, with pleats at front and straight wide legs to keep it funky.

Keeping it transpicuous and comfy, I wore these all white tennis looking sneakers in cotton canvas with lacing at front, canvas lining and insoles with a looped back summating it w/ zebra socks for that diversity.
