check it – i am almost wearing pants! well, vintage culottes, really, but this is the closest i have gotten to wearing pants in almost 2 years (haven’t worn jeans in over 3). it wasn’t really a conscious decision – although i love the look of good jeans/pants on other girls, i feel like they aren’t nearly as fun or flattering on me as dresses, so i kinda phased them out. but i found these plaid culottes recently at a thrift store and thought i might as well give them a try. and i like the look, except it’s not quite a comfortable as a nice flowy skirt is.
song inspiration: “stuck in line” by absent sound. this is a band from winnipeg that i met years ago at the pitchfork music festival. they ended up staying at my house a few times on tours when they came through chicago. they are pretty awesome people who make really ethereal emo-ish music that builds nicely. and we all know i’m a sucker for a good build in a tune.
