fountains spilling with secrets



hoodie - bdg, uo | black silk shirt - mom's ?? | skirt - guess | bag - hype | chain necklace - diy/vintage | shoes - diy payless

Has any read the children's book From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler? [ wiki here ] Totally random but that's what popped into mind when I was sitting by these fountains at Washington Square Park by NYU  the other day. Actually it just so happens that the museum they run away to was the Met. Kind of mind boggling now that I've actually been there, makes me want to re-read it since it'll make more sense now.

Hmmm so threw this outfit together, without the hoodie it's actually very work friendly but I suppose it was raining. I think that's why I brought my striped jacket... or maybe just for the pop of color. Who knows. Anyway the necklace is this long lanky gem-encrusted vintage chain from Amarcord that I used as a leg bracelet thing a few posts ago... I found this keychain my ex roomie gave me from one of her care packages hehehehe anywwhooo decided the silhouette looked kinda cool and hooked it on to make an awkward necklace. UMM yeah turns out the keychain is actually two guns at the bottom?! Whatever I still think it makes sense.... visually anyway.

  1. Pistol necklace pulls it all together nicely. Did you get very wet or is it just an optical illusion?
