winter is coming

Okay, I promise that my next post will be about Imitation of Christ. In the meanwhile, here's the outfit I wore while hanging out at Tortoise's recording studio last weekend. If you've ever wondered what's inside that building with the block-stye mural at Division and Damen, now you know! Personally, every time I've passed that building I've wondered WTF is that place? and I feel very satisfied knowing what's inside.

This outfit is party inspired by Game of Thrones which I have become completely fixated with. I just finished the first book and the first season of the show and feel like it could by my NEXT BIG THING. In other words, the next thing that completely dominates my inspiration for the forseeable future. So this outfit is hella Catelyn Stark, and made me feel very mystical as I walked throughout the studio, long skirt trailing on the ground and split hemlines of my jacket swishing around on top.


(vintage jacket and skirt, rodarte for opening ceremony blouse, pamela love sacred heart necklace)

This jacket is one of my favorite vintage pieces. I've long had a love affair with paisley but there's something so sinister about this jacket, perhaps it is because the paisleys look like evil tentacles or something. The fact that it is sheer begs for some sort of printed garment, because prints look so good peeking out from underneath.


Didn't have a whole lot to say today. Till next time, kiddos.

Gawd, I started following your blog because shoegaze and Risto and My Bloody Valentine and Opening Ceremony and reasons. Now you're also into GoT. I don't even know you and I feel like we should be friends or something.

I love the way the Pamela Love necklace looks like it's part of the shirt especially in the first photo. The fact that the jacket is sheer doubles its impressiveness for sure. I wish I could make time to read. I know the GoT books are good and I'm obsessed with the show but trying to read anything lately is a struggle.
