train tracks

tank - target, cardigan - thrifted, jeans - gap, shoes - beat to shit converse, bag - thrifted coach, scarf - vintage, sunglasses - stolen/found in oly

It's funny, this is pretty much how I always used to dress about three years ago. Kind of 50s/rockabilly inspired. Seriously, when I was 17, all I wore were jeans with wifebeaters and cardigans, and I always wore my hair up with a little pompadour and a bandana. There are a few slight changes though. I've switched the bandana for a silk scarf, tied on the side instead of in the back, and I wear red lipstick now. This time I also did a bit more of cat eye eyeliner instead the smokey eye I was obsessed with back then. And I never used to cuff my jeans (silly, they look much better with high tops when they're cuffed). Here, check out these pictures, all from 2007. So the same thing.

I guess I just think it's kind of weird to be revisiting something I did several years ago. Not bad really. I mean, I really did like this outfit. It's just that this used to be all I wore. Like every day I wore anything other than jeans and a tshirt with messy hair, it was wifebeater, cardigan, pomp, bandana, smokey eye. So glad I switch it up a bit now.


  1. your lipstick is perfection!

  2. Beautiful pictures!

  3. love the head scarf - it's interesting looking way back at old outfits huh? a different sort of reminiscing -tho i always associate certain wardrobe pieces w/ specific memories, haha
