the bones of this old town


I found this 1950s trench coat at santa cruz's antique faire.  it's fun to get all dressed up, but I have this feeling that some day I'll throw everything out the window and go live on a mountain in africa.

in the meantime... 

coat: vintage
dress: kimchi blue


while my friend and I were taking pictures, this guy came up and asked to take a picture with me.  my friend and I laughed about it for a good twenty minutes.  

and then we got ice cream!

  3. I like the idea of you living on a mountain in Africa. You'd soon be dressing in all the fabulous cloth bought from markets. Don't throw away the checkered coat; it's too neat.
