Style Inspiration: The Mighty Boosh Zooniverse Jacket

It seems strange that just a couple of weekends ago I was all bundled up because the early signs of summer finally hit LA this week. I sweated it out selling at the Rose Bowl Flea Market just this past weekend, but Memorial Day weekend (which is supposed to usher in summer fun) was cold and gloomy! I guess it did give me a chance to wear one of my favorite outfits one last time for the season.

This thrifted vest started its life much longer, but I chopped it since I wanted a more cropped look. That meant I also had to shorten the pockets so they wouldn’t hang out of the bottom! I’ve never actually done that before and it turned out to be super easy. I’ve been super into cutting garments and leaving the edge raw as well. There’s just something casual and kind of punk that I love about the fraying.

Fun fact: I think of this vest as my “Mighty Boosh jacket” because it always reminds me of the zookeeper jackets they wear in season 1 of the show. I’m definitely taking some styling tips from Vince Noir with the scarf too - haha!

I guess this is also the blog debut of my Ziggy Stardust mullet! It definitely won’t survive the late summer heat (I hate having hair on my neck) so I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts. I think I need to bust out my Bowie costume from a few Halloweens ago and do a photoshoot once it’s gets a bit longer.

We were out in Wonder Valley near Joshua Tree National Park shooting my spring lookbook last weekend, and I decided to snap these quick outfit photos while we were at it too. I can't waste scenery as beautiful as this! Right after this we did some rock scrambling in the park and then stopped off at Hangar 24 Brewery on the way home for some well deserved beers.

I'm still digging through the photos for the actual lookbook. This time around was a lot more challenging than last fall. Everything just seemed to fall perfectly in place then. This time we had the wind to deal with. I don't mean a slight breeze, it was full on windy. So now I'm sorting through otherwise beautiful photos where my hair is blowing up at a strange angle or my whole body is being blow off-kilter as I try to balance on the rocky ground in towering heels. I actually almost sprained my ankle a few times! The things I do for my shop...

Anyway, I hope to have the lookbook edited and posted in the next couple weeks. I'm also working on a redesign of this whole site, including the blog. Lots of changes coming and I'm super excited!
