life feels like a savage garden. its not the safe sheltered life we once knew when we were young. if you are not careful you can be eaten alive. dont be the prey. learn to survive. that is what im teaching myself these days.

thank you to Vincent, Medusa, Nikki M, Daniella R, and Tabby for getting me thru the emotional rollercoaster. im truly grateful.


love vintage illustrations of flora and fauna. The shirt Im wearing reminds me of these illustrations with its heavily contrasted detail and rich color. I love that the shirt is designed like a scuba suit because it adds depth to the already literal terran feel of the print. Speaking of depth the oriental flora detail of the gillet/vest worn as skirt below adds dimension to the east/west hybridization. the fauna comes in the form of cold metal scorpions. Love how mechanical it appears yet stunningly exudes that sheen of its exterior. a contrast between natural and artifical. the tie dye shoes and tank (obscured and layered under by the floral print shirt) has this summer feel which I am expressing (an underying feeling to get away from the city and enjoy the beach).

I like to wear my vests like this when it gets hot. From afar it looks like a skirt but its just a way to wear them much like tying the sleeves of your shirt or jacket on the hips. In fact the sleeves act as easy access to pockets. quite functional and aesthetically pleasing too (as it adds an illusion of hips to my hipless frame).
