i bequeath myself to the dirt

“I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again,
look for me under your boot-soles”

my match, my lighter, the flame for the cigarette i haven’t smoked in over a year.

elephant bells + headwrap + flip flops + rabid dog + patchwork skirt + zinc face paint + somewhere in thailand = my dream womb

dreadlocks + fanny pack + dress over jeans + frayed old scarf + camel = the undead hippie heart

dearest hands behind the amazing, please hire me. 
your world is my world.
we speak the same tangent.

I was the mistress
of my fate..
I gave it all out…
If I’d really known you then,
you would have had to watch out…

“…it seems inevitable that one is a loner being born an artist, an outsider, and it can be, and is a very rough ride at times – but then I love wild horses!”

on getting old:

i imagine myself salt and pepper with layers of turquoise and squash blossoms. a black gown with red dirt decorating the unhemmed seam. 

( such a great spread)

outfits to match today’s earrings


(bell bottoms foreva!)


(perfect hairstyle for them grays)


(one point for ue’s fashion prediction: feather (boas) and seashells)


because during our off days we definitely love posing next to trees.

the best combination consists of 


parted-in-the-middle hair

blanket worn as shirt

heels in pic. 2

and grunge layering techniques

hideous at its finest


john galliano is in love with ugly.

and the uglies love him for it.
