Little Red Shoes

I'm currently sitting inside the Caffe Vita on E Pike in Capitol Hill, stalling before a show, and I thought - hey I've got a bit of a post backup, let's post one!

And as I was listening to Mt St Helens Vietnam Band, I realized that they have a song on their 2009 record called "Little Red Shoes." It was meant to be, y'all!

See these shoes? I got them for $1 at a garage sale. Granted, they're not the most comfortable things in the world - but for $1 I can't complain.
On this particular day, Lindsay and I went to go shoot at the old Regal Cinema in Gig Harbor. It was a beautiful day to go glamping in the old broken down yard adjacent to what was once a quaint old theater. It is Regal no more. There was literally the shell of a television, a vacuum, some Fireball, and what used to be a really cool old chair. It was kind of disgusting, but it looked cool.
It was the first day of Spring, so I threw on my favorite pink lipstick - Mac's Impassioned to ring in the new season. I love this lipstick, and the fact that it brightened up my generally sallow face helped. I have a cold, and am currently sniffling and super duper raspy. It's almost a sexy rasp. Almost.
Also let's take a second to appreciate fourth day hair. FOURTH DAY. I washed my hair on Sunday and this was Thursday. Hell yeah.
For my actual outfit, I wanted to wear my new Zara jeans that I picked up last weekend when I had several hours to kill in downtown Seattle. Before a party down on Alaskan Way, I stopped at Westlake and picked these babies up. I think I've found a new favorite pair of jeans. These high waisted jeans go higher than my BDG Cigarette Jeans. Hallelujah.
 I tucked in my new Truly Madly Deeply tee in and layered a couple of dainty gold chain necklaces over it for an easy look.

I look serene as fuck here. I was actually staring at an old mattress. That's how gross it was in that yard.

I've got more posts queued up, so stay tuned the next few days!
Happy Spring!


  1. Even if it was a really gross setting for you, I think it made for an awesome photo shoot! Maybe all the place needed was a lovely lady with some rocking hair and fashion sense?

  2. I absolutely love your style, your pictures, and your blog!!!
