totally forgot about these pictures, this took place last year on my birthday in February on the rooftop of the skate shop (notice how we're all wearing shorts-- Austin, Texas is challenged with the whole weather and seasons thing). my friend matt munson takes awesome pictures and i fell in love with these black and white pictures he took. i remember the day perfectly-- beautiful sunny day spent picnicking in the park, drinking birthday beers on the rooftop with my handy dandy new beer belt, lots of food and friends and laughs. perfect birthday. check out matt's photos heeeeeere. promise you won't regret it.
halloween is my least favorite holiday. not that i don't like dressing up, just the process and things that go into dressing up (i.e. time, money, thought, stress, blahblaaaaahlala) i'd rather not have a holiday dedicated to it and just dress up whenever i want. but i dressed up anyway and went as sailor moon--brunette style. and on friday when everyone else dressed up (not on halloween) i went as myself, but some thought i looked like a hooker. i can't help that i have long legs, rips in my shorts, and boots that make me like 6+ feet tall. so i went as a hooker/myself. shove it. -g.
went to a memorial for my aunt Annie who passed away in august, the picture above is my mom, grandpa and aunt in black when they were younger. my aunt was and is one of the greatest, strongest, generous, free spirited, and driven woman i know, among so many other great things. my second mom, the places that have meant so much to me like Paris, and Puerto Rico which i experienced with her will never be the same, but her spirit will surround their beauty, i know it. so in her honor we celebrated her life in typical Annie family/friend style, lots of food, alcohol, laughter, tears and funny faces.
old people like to party--you better believe it.
sista, sista.bitch is probably wearing my underwear as we take this.
as sisters we feel we owe it to each other to pick each others noses. the least we can do for each other.
my mom thinks my face is ugly.
if my aunt was still here i know she would be making funny faces with me. missing her. love you.
haven't posted in a while, i've been kind out of it/not feeling so great. saw Where the Wild Things Are for the second time tonight.. i obviously loved it a lot. there is something so great about the movie that i can so easily relate to-- seeing Max at nine years old reminds me of my childhood and how easy it was to just create my own world when times got tough. anyways, went digging a little bit and found these old photos of my sister and i, times were great when our mama dressed us. -g
guest checks--they provide me with something to write my life notes, to-do list, financial planning, doodles, poems, and art on. thank you guest checks, and thank you non-existent customers that don't walk through the doors of our restaurant, you leave quality time for me and my guest checks.
the short amount of time fall/winter comes to austin, texas these "Where the Wild Things Are" coats for Opening Ceremony. (they are expensive--i would go broke, but i can dream)
my butt wants to be in these shorts (erin wasson x RVCA) --because if my Australia trip goes as planned then summer time will be upon me again soon.
pretty photos taken by people who are passionate about it, and the thought of the sea and the open road arriving my way sooner than i think.
Marlon Brando and his leather jacket in "The Wild One"
"where the wild things are" coming out in approximately 10 days, super super excited.
comfy shirts i could live in. (topshop come to texas, please)
Jenna's pretty green dress made its way onto my body, and the pictures don't do as much justice as they should for the dress. needless to say it could probably make any girl's boobs look great. thanks jennalove for letting me wear it, and for the pictures. on another note--my laptop has been in computer heaven for the past two weeks and i'm waiting for it to get repaired so all my favorite pictures/inspirations are floating out there somewhere and i want them back! but the break my computer and i are taking from each other has given me time to read tons of books! just finished The Rum Diary, and Hells Angels by Hunter S. Thompson, and next up is the The Proud Highway so i'm pretty excited, i forgot how much i loved reading. xo G. dress- bcbg max azria fur cape- vintage-jenna's
