Vintage cheetah pelt hat, sweater, necklace, boots, and pins, Godzilla shirt, and Gap Leather pants

Picked up this Godzilla shirt while I was in L.A.'s Little Tokyo a few weeks back. I thought I'd style it more on the Dropsnap-Fruits-side of my personal style spectrum, Godzilla hailing from Japan and all. If you've read my blog before, you may have seen Godzilla rear his ugly head more than a few times, peaking out of inspiration boards and such. I was raised on monster B-movies, especially japanese kaiju flicks - it's always nice to find a cool shirt with added nostalgia. This particular graphic features the Godzilla suit from Godzilla 1984, just in case you were wondering (I'm going refrain from opening the flood gates of my vast wealth of useless Godzilla trivia). Here's a scan of the graphic...

The lapels on my unmarked vintage sweater were begging to be pierced by rusty pins (Incidentally, my sweater makes me think of Margiela's collection of life-sized doll clothes. Maybe it's because it has no label? Yay for obscure references?). Featured currently on lapel rotation, are two of my favorites. I could've just taken crummy detail shots of them on my clothes, but I decided to go the extra mile and create crummy scanned naty-geo-spirational board things. It's artsy fartsy and all that shit (Kind of reminds me of a Comme Des Garcons ad. Yay for more obscure references?).



Being a style blogger has its perks, like when your relatives ask if you'd like a molting fur coat from the 40s. I got it last summer, and besides a spin around the block in it while riding an electric wheel chair (Don't ask), it has yet to be put to good use. I stumbled upon it resting in my garage the other day and decided it had to be photographed.

I've always liked the idea of fur (or faux, the look of fur in general) being worn completely out of context. It's hard to break out of the pimp or silver screen actress look with a classic looking fur coat. I thought it'd be cool to style a look that made something that used to be considered glamorous and stylish, look like trash. So I threw on some clunky boots, a vintage tee, grey jeans, and topped it off with a beanie to hide my hair that is in desperate need of a trim (I've always personally considered beanies to be the ultimate diffuser, they drag pretty much anything down to a casual level).

I picked up these boots at a great vintage store in Little Tokyo called Standard Issue. They remind me of the cracked-paint Margielas - I was instantly smitten!



I have on a Levi's Denim Jacket, Miss Sixty jeans, American Apparel shirt, vintage skull necklace and boots.

I got these jeans at the Long Beach flea market. I love things that look like they've endured a washing machine trip of sandpaper and fire, so I was smitten by these. Plus green denim is pretty scarce.

I tend to stray away from skulls because I'm cursed with growing up with Hottopic's rendition of skulls. However, I will shed away my predisposition for this skull necklace my dad got on Melrose in Los Angeles in the early 80s. It's strung up by a rope of silk, which I think is pretty cool.

Probably gonna wait until I get a haircut to do another outfit post, I have a lot of cool stuff to post so stay tuned!



Vintage sweater, shoes, and boots, Obey shirt, and secondhand jeans.

Normally a brand like Obey would be a bit too "cool" for my taste (y'know, with me being so desperately uncool and all), but I couldn't say no to a hissing snake rendition of the Stones' logo.

Moodboard I hammered together for this post...
