The jacket is a used children’s jacket that I found on eBay. For your reference, I fit into a size 14-16 in children’ jackets. Buying children’s jackets is a great way to grab a good used motorcycle jacket for $20 when women’s-sized pieces come in at over $100.
Also, did you appreciate my horrible cheesy dad-style Elton John reference? There was a period when I had a pixie cut and had put on a little weight where I looked exactly like Elton John. I thought the crocodile-print vintage dress from Crystal Hearts warranted the EJ tie-in.
People who follow my strange rambling Twitter may remember that last week, I went to a fake NYE party. Los Angeles is like that — you’ll end up going to a lot of “fake” parties where people are filming things (this one was a music video), and then they eventually turn into real parties when the filming is over. So, this was my fake NYE outfit. Brit neglected to tell me that it was supposed to be a NYE party in 1999, but I assume this is because she knew I’d dress like a ‘90s train wreck anyway, without provocation. Rumor has it Mischa Barton was there wearing a Timothy Leary X Wildfox Couture collab shirt “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out” (they didn’t really collab on that — if Timothy Leary had learned a little bit more about copyright law and a little bit less about LSD, though, he could have trademarked that slogan and made a pretty penny, I’ll bet).
