Art is not made for anybody and is, at the same time, for everybody.

I'm currently visiting my mom's family in Iowa right now- everything is so pretty and white! I love it. My family is off watching the Iowa vs. Mizzou bowl game, while I opted to stay home and babysit my cousins- football is not my thing. Anyway I came across this ingenious ysl mondrian inspired dress that is entirely made of .25 mm thick fashion grade latex.
It's available here, for $210, along with a rather frightening amount of other latex pieces to choose from.

bourbon coke and dog walking

hp xmas

I hope you all had a merry christmas and happy holidays! I had a great time with the fam and received some fantastic fashion related gifts(mostly books) that I'm super excited about that I'll post soon. So if you can tell I'm kind of going through a london/copenhagen street phase. Mixed with a little goth, hipster and rachel zoe. I'm kind of at a 60s/70s meets creepers moment. I want the extravagant glam of the 70s, cat eye of the 60s and the simplicity of well designed black(CDG anyone?) pieces. Bizarre but I'm loving it all! These pictures are up on my inspiration board right now:

suck my dick

gi jane 2
This is kind of a random movie to be watching over the holidays, but since I have so much free time now that its break I've taken to watching as many movies as possible. Thank god for movie channels! I think I liked GI Jane more than the average person for some reason. Its approach to feminism in the military and even DADT was really intriguing; its especially cool now that DADT has been repealed! The film was a constant comment on femininity/ masculinity that was done in a really nice manner. Basically I want to be as sassy(and ripped!) and ferocious as her. Need to go to the gym asap...
gi jane 1
Is it just me or does she look even more stunning with a shaved head?

Reminds me of Chloe Sevigny in If Walls Could Talk, II i think? Gimme a super hot butch character anyday.

gi jane 4

This scene is super gorey but I'm obsessed with her line at the end. What I would give to have the opportunity to tell someone to suck my dick....

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A bird will fall frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.

I think this girl may be my style soul mate. She loves vintage and the story that comes with buying used and also buys cheap shoes because she can't afford anything else. AKA ME. I'm kind of on a late 60s/ early 70s vibe thats borderline obsession, trying to get my hands on any movie or magazine from that period. I need a job.
EDIT: so i kind of watched a thousand more of these and added some more favorites!

xoxo julianne

p.s. I'm thinking of starting a vintage shop on etsy! I just feel like everytime I'm thrifting I find a million things that are too big/too small/ not my style/ that are dying to be loved again! thoughts please!

Boys, I don't want to speak ill of your mother on Christmas, but she's nothing but a common street whore.

I feel like every time any break rolls around, I need it more than the last one. This semester was so stressful but now I feel so free and ready to finish high school. And for once I'm really looking forward to spending time with all the extended fam.
Here's some things I just really like at the moment.

Normally I hate dances, but I would be so psyched for prom if could find something like either one of these dresses, especially the gold one. I'm planning on scouring vintage/charity shops for the next few months for something flowery or sequiny maybe, who knows.

frida and nellie
DIY much? I think my years of girl scout camping have seasoned me in the art of friendship-bracelet making, so must do this ASAP. I have a bunch of diys I want to attempt over break.

I WANT A NOSE RING SOOOO BAD. Too bad my school has a policy on facial piercings.....

I just think this is funny.

akio 1
I adore akio takamori.

I want Michelle William's hair. and general adorableness....

tasya van ree
I think that it is entirely IMPOSSIBLE to ever get enough of Kate Moennig. She will forever remain one of my favorite TLW characters.
I scored seasons 1&2 of the rachel zoe project on sale at target for 12.99 ea plus some new lipstain today, so I'm a pretty happy camper. And I bought a clothes rack last week to fix my closet-overflow problem so now I'm on my way to having a semi-organized closet hoorah!

This is public school. If I can keep the girls off the pole and the boys off the pipe, I get a bonus.

the sartorialist
Ever since I saw this photo from the sart I've has my heart set on bell bottoms. Really, I'm quite tired of skinnies at the moment. This look is a breath of fresh air, especially the light jean + floppy hat + blouse combo. I've scanned a few vintage and thrift stores for a pair, with zero luck so far. So naturally my next step was etsy!

I really love the idea of cream lace ones or even the paisley ones. I think i'm going to try and snag the plain ones for starters, wish me luck!

p.s. I'm also obsessed with this cape from american apparel. I saw it in the store in KC(boo stl not having a store... seriously whats up with that?) when I was visting a college yesterday but unfortunately I had no cash. Also these dresses( here and here) from Nefertiti! I seriously need a job ASAP!
