First I want to say I did not shoot this post in -4º weather, I might be quirky but I'm not insane.
Recently I saw (then immediately bought) Diary of a Teenage Girl and it was so beautiful and thought provoking, it was my inspiration for this outfit, mainly these jeans. It's been a while since I've seen a movie so moving, that something inside of me awoken. Diary of a Teenage Girl is about 15-year-old Minnie, discovering herself sexually. Watching this movie, I felt everything I did at 15 all over again. Even now as a grown woman (who should have her shit figured out) I could still relate. It's amazing how looking back, I've changed so much, yet some parts haven't changed at all. I'm not quite sure what my theme is for 2016, but diaries keep popping up.
Anyways, the 1970's was a badass time for women, the idea of free-love, second-wave feminism, bell-bottom jeans, and Charlie's Angels (like my little Angel Kick from above?). Thank you Angels for paving the way for my favorite kickass women like Buffy and Xena (also for an awesome cheesy reboot in 2000 - Love Drew Barrymore's Dylan). But Yes, bell-bottom jeans, boots with the furrrrr..... There's a scene in Diary of a Teenage Girl where she's dancing in her room in her high waisted flares, and she looks so happy and free, clearly it was the jeans. So I went out and got a pair, and my journey to happy freedom started.
