Confession: I used to constantly make fun of one of my closest friends (#sorrynotsorry) for wearing his stinky Birkenstocks circa high school with literally every outfit and to places where sandals are definitely not considered shoes (at least for dudes) until I shamed him so much that he was compelled to change into a less offensive shoe when he was around me. Fast forward a few years later, and I'm totally lusting for a pair of Birks of my own. (Trust me, he was the first to know of this new obsession as well as the first to support me.). Andwith the new ugly shoe resurgence (thanks Refinery 29 for this article) I'm feeling like I'm definitely not alone in the universe. So adding to my grunge wishlist will have to be a pair of black on black stocks. Now if only I had the modern Santa Monica compound to go with it - aren't they one and the same? File as one day.
UPDATE: Stop the presses, even more support of Birkenstocks has emerged!! ...feeling a little behind the trend at this moment. But really, I don't give two hoots. Hashtag time to go shopping.
Currently obsessing over one of Aimee Song's newer collabos with Vogue Spain for a 7 Days/7 Looks feature. The filtering on these photos, the relaxed feel of the whole thing, and obvs the peek into her home - file as can't stop looking.
Too put it mildly, I've got grunge fever. Although it's the exact opposite of my wardrobe of year's past, I realized when an old friend came to visit the other week, that I may be adapting to my LA home a little more than I thought. What can I say, not everyone wishes the 90's were back, but I sure as hell am happy about it. Next on my shopping list: vintage overalls and an even bigger vintage men's denim jacket to rough up. File as more please.
