The tale of the Missing Tighty Whitey's

Dear laundry room thief,

Rash and Foolish. Two words come to mind as I think of my adventures in doing laundry on a saturday evening, and then proceeding to actually forget said fluffed laundry in communal laundry room whilst many fellow apartment dwellers passerby my undies laying out getting a chill. I guess that being an "artist" would be best described as someone who is pretty much harebrained. That is I. Why, hello, I am the epitome of forgetfulness, peter pan syndrome suffering, careless being that roams Pier 39, steal my tighty whities, cause I won't mind. (BUT I DO) Someone oddly enough stole just my whites. I am still investigating the particulars here, but obviously this person really likes white attire (I am speaking to you). I suppose I could not level with this thief, as moi's wardrobe mostly consists of the color that Emo's and pre-adolescents attract to, black. Sorry, I am told black is not yet a color these days ? I take that back.

Anyhoo. WHITE. Spring is here. Summer will be knocking down the cold front soon and I guess white could be savory enough to throw on one's back. BUT WHY steal my ever beloved never worn (by me) Goodwill sweater which I finally got around to washing as it possessed a stinky dust odor ? WHY would you want to break a The Smiths crazed-fan-girls-heart and snatch my much-loved Morrissey t-shirt ? WHY would you see my $3 awesome-sauce Goodwill find of a white lace top and go "whoa that's totally mine", which I only managed to wear once & felt like I could've been Madonna's best bud in the like-a-virgin-80's? WHEN ALL THESE ITEMS DID NOT BELONG TO YOU ?
Hey it took me some good seconds minutes hours days thrifting all my second-hand-licious articles of clothing. And although I can appreciate someone enjoying and sharing my taste in funky attire, I am terribly heartbroken and as a criminal hoarder of threads, I do feel an emotional meltdown slowing engulfing my being as we speak. Oh and I want my undies back ASAP. My butt is starting to get cold. 

Thank you.


✜ ++ update : i got my tighty whitey's back. Persistence children. ✜

As you can see, I have discovered quite recently I have a "thing" for leather. Who knew ?

Happy Easter sunday, for those of you who are into that. And if not, then put simply: happy sunday. Much love xo

  2. That harness is DOPE!
    But i feel ya girl, when laundry goes missing is THE worst. I would be devastated if my favorite pieces went missing.
    Did you get all your whites back? or just the tighty whitey's?

  8. Those harnesses are wicked!!

  9. Aaah, I feel your pain!!! well, kind of. Two years ago, when I was working at Subway, my black duffle coat was stolen by some random thief in the back room, while I was working at the front. That coat cost $132 and I haven't found one as nice to replace it since :( Awesome job with the harnesses btw.

  13. wow the things people do never cease to amazing me...but at least you got them back! love this look its so low key but awesome with the choker and harness, which by the way are totally badass...and love the dark hair too ;)


  14. I'm glad you got them back! Why the heck would anyone steal those!? I would be pretty upset, though, if I had a Morrissey shirt and someone took it! Anyway, I LOVE that harness and the loose jeans are wicked! I definitely have a thing for leather, too.

  15. I love this outfit so much. The harness and the necklace are amazing!
