By my parents home there's an traditional style dairy queen that's only open in the summer-early fall. When its closed it showcases a bold wooden american flag that seems more jasper john than americana. Leave it to me to find the bold pop art in the simplest non intentional ways. Regardless it made an awesome backdrop to stripey bold lipped look. Which I insisted dave to pull over and shoot here. It turned out to be the perfect local before we munched on veggie lo mein....AND YES, this is that new coat I've been wanting.
I actually got it for christmas, and I am so pleased. It's vintage and SUPER WARM, plus unlike most brown coats, mother dearest knew to go a little lighter than my natural skin tone that most brown coats are. No one wants to be completely camouflaged in their coats. And I am obsessed with classic nudes this year!
And taking some notes from the classic calivintage jump, I decided to have more fun in my photos and take myself less seriously. I mean I never take myself seriously, I am such a dork! But I love fashion! Who says there can't be dorky fashionista??!!!
anyway...I hope this photoshoot brought out your sense of pride, if not for the flag at least for the cute small establishments that give us the comforts of home.
