For today’s post, I just plopped myself down in the palm trees. Luckily, my front porch & backyard (actually, a shared courtyard) offer a lot of places for me to take pictures of my outfits. But despite the lovely back drops, I still feel like a boner. I have been pretty diligent in posting my daily outfits, but that doesn’t mean I don’t sometimes feel my endeavors are vacuous and insignificant. I’m sure other fashion bloggers feel the same way at times.
That being said, (I hate that transition) I’m wearing vintage Levi’s that are so high-waisted, my butt looks about as long as a horse’s face. I bought them at Flashback Vintage, in Orange, Orange County, CA approximately 10 years ago. Here, I paired em’ with a 70s vintage sienna-colored sheer shirt. I had to wear flats because these pants aren’t long enough, and wide leg pants should not also be high risers (floods). I just bought this vintage satchel bag at the thrift store. (another Lancaster score).
[Insert non-sequitur here:]
Yesterday, my friend, Amanda, posted her top “15 albums in 15 minutes” on Facebook. I posted my list on Facebook as well, but after some consideration, I decided to narrow it down to 10 albums, and to reflect longer than 15 minutes. Coming up with my 10 top albums is a hard task indeed. I own all of the following albums on record, which makes for a much better listening experience. Anyway, here is my list. I’d be delighted to know yours!
Willie Nelson’s “Red Headed Stranger
Neil Young’s “After the Gold Rush
Lucinda Williams’ - self titled album
Waylon Jennings “Honky Tonk Heroes”
Crass “Penis Envy”
Abner Jay “True Story of Abner Jay” (Buy this record now!)
Bob Dylan “Nashville Skyline”
Leonard Cohen “Songs of Leonard Cohen”
Tinariwen “The Radio Tisdas Sessions” ( I actually don’t own this one on record).
Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers “The Modern Lovers”
Albums that almost made the top 10 cut:
Patti Smith’s “Easter”
Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”
Morrissey ‘s“Bona Drag”
Orange Juice ‘You Can’t Hide Your Love Forever”
I know this sounds generic, but I love, love, love music, which is why I have the music note tattoo on my shoulder (maybe you’ve seen it in previous posts?) which Elliott did with a razor blade & bottle of ink – the old “stick & poke” technique – when we were both a little tipsy, though I would have still gone through with it if I were sober. I like to tell people that it’s a prison tat.
Happy trails to you, until we meet again ...
