The city burns us to ash








I seldom wear pink. But I'm actually drawn to the way this set of images provokes an air of 80's rock-glam and then swims into feeling oddly like a Patrick Nagel painting. Sometimes, I'm completely oblivious as what inspires certain palettes and silhouettes, or why my choice styling comes from unpremeditated, dubious combinations that somehow meld effortlessly into something I never imagined belonged together.

(Vintage jewelry, scarfs, and aviators + Hot Topic rose bracelet, Jessica Simpson boots, H&M tights, DIY True Religion cutoffs, Random tank and cardigan)

I think it's the change-purse necklace that pulls it all together.
Re. The City burns us to ash: It's all of that blacktop. Good observation Bella.
