Every time I open her blog I remember how much I miss living in USA and I cherish the time I spent in Seattle that much more. The two things I miss the most are probably the freedom to wear anything I could think about, as weird and mismatched as I desired and no one staring at me as if I were an alien ready to conquer their planet and of course the wonderful thrift and charity shops so full of treasures ready to be discovered. I have actual dreams with me shopping at my favorite Goodwill in Seattle (the first time I went there I actually found a pair of vintage Oscar de la Renta sunglasses).
One of the many reasons I love Jessica’s blog is that she doesn’t settle for one style (as much as I admire other bloggers I can’t really understand or identify myself with their faithfulness to just one style): you’ll se her wearing everything from desperate housewife, to pin up, to punk, to grunge, to hippie, to gangsta fabulous.
Speaking of gangsta fabulous – she actually takes this one to another level. I’ve never seen anyone wearing so many jewelry and looking so effortless and cool while doing it – I also love wearing and making jewelry and accessories as you might know by now!
The other day I might actually offended one of my coworkers by daring to wear… three vintage brooches at once (not counting the earrings and a huge cocktail ring). She asked me as if she her eyes were failing her: “Are you wearing three brooches?” and because I naturally responded “Yes, indeed I do!” she asked me in complete and utter amazement with a flavor of disapproval and disgust “Why?” At this point I was actually a little bit pissed so I answered in my bitch voice “Because I want to!”. I mean - What the hell? Is there a brooch police I don’t know about, are they giving fines for wearing more than one brooch? Also I find it hilarious that they apparently don’t approve of the way I dress: I mean in the last 5 months my grandmother surely dressed herself more exciting than me. They didn’t seen anything yet and I plan to actually show them what outrageous actually means (evil laughter).
Back to Jessica – besides the hugely inspirational pictures I find her super funny and always laugh as a crazy person while reading her articles. This are some of my favorites things she wrote, I might as well quote her:
"I looooooove a good pair of cutoffs that why I have to make them myself. I like a little butt cheek flash when I walk! Keeping it skanky cause it's fucking hot!"
"Now I'll be the first to say that I am beyond flat-chested! I'm like a NEGATIVE A cup, lol!! But in these pics, DAMN! My side profile is boobless!"
"It was love at first sight when I saw the suede harness booties from across the store! I died came back to life and found the lace dress!"
Nu ma intelegeti gresit- NU-mi pasa prea tare insa m-as putea lipsi de remarcile tampite, uff-urile si off-urile aruncarte zilnic in directia mea. Cel de-al doilea lucru care imi lipseste sunt “thrift” store-urile si charity shop-urile (traduse liber la noi ca magazine second hand) pline de comori la preturi incredibil de mici. Recunosc ca mi se intampla sa visez cum caut cu infrigurare prin rafturile Goodwill-ului meu preferat din Seattle (unde la prima vizita am gasit o pereche de ochelari vintage Oscar de la Renta).
