Somewhat proper

(everything is vintage except leather shorts, which are lucca couture)

These pictures were taken at the Mad Decent block party in which we mainly hung out inside the Native tour bus to keep cool. I'm not sure why I donned my proper rocker ensemble to a huge outdoor music party but sometimes, there are just no answers. Later on we went to the National Forest party and they had this awesome googly-eyed collage which Tim and I had a lot of fun with.

Here are some inspiration photos to go with this post since I know I've been a major slacker lately...





I'm convinced Patti Smith is the coolest person ever photographed. If you haven't read her book Just Kids yet, RUN to your nearest bookstore and buy it. Support your local independent bookstore, folks. Then while you're there you can pick up the Patti Smith 1969-1976 photographed by Judy Linn book which are where all these photos came from except for the first one by the dearly departed Robert Mapplethorpe.
