Factory Girl






Whatcha Wearing?
Monki tank top from Beacon's Closet
Jeans from H&M that I cut into shorts
Vintage boots from Salvation Army
Cuff from Buffalo Exchange
Sunglasses from American Eagle

I love how the pattern on this shirt has a stylized city with a factory expelling what looks like ink bubbles. What does that mean? What exactly are they producing in that factory? Is it safe? These are all very pressing questions about my shirt...

There were a lot of people in the alley today as we were walking over to the graffiti wall, and one guy decided to follow us and stare at me as we took photos. I really hate that. The look on my face in the last picture is when I had just about enough. I just feel so awkward when people watch me taking outfit photos. Mostly because, to someone who doesn't read these types of blogs, it much seem like the most ridiculous activity ever. Or maybe that's just my perception of the situation and I need to get over it. For whatever reason, I was much more comfortable taking photos back in Brooklyn. Oh well, adapt or die!

I'm linking up with Real Girl Style, The Pleated PoppyTransatlantic Blonde, #YOLO Mondays, and Steppin' Out.


  1. Hey Chrissi, thanks for the lovely comments on my blog and the follow! I love your outfit, you have a really cool sense of style... you're very adventurous, it echoes what you said about the older lady you want to grow up like!

    It's a shame about the creepy stary person... I hate that too. My tip when someone will not stop staring is to get the photographer to turn the camera on them... chase after them and take their picture if you need to, they'll soon go!!! Let me know how you get on ;)

    Now following you too... look forward to hearing from you again sweetie!!

  2. Cracking up. I'm pretty sure my neighbors are shaking their heads at my front yard outfit photo shoots.

    Love those boots. I would probably follow you around too. So I could stalk you while you find all your thrifted vintage awesomeness.

    1. Haha! Well, you're not a strange middle aged dude, so that would be a little (a lot) less creepy!

  3. The print on the shirt is awesome. Where did you find such a cool background?

    And I feel the same way when people see my take outfit photos. Ack! But you know what? These are people you will never see again, so I try to keep in mind that their opinions don't matter! I like blogging so they can just deal!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way. I'm definitely following you just to keep up with your unique style.
