[[MORE]]The suburbs are a daunting place for creativity. In spite of this, the local church thrift stores provide a fabulous arsenal of cheap goods to coarsely articulate my fashion language.


I’m attracted to the idea of pairing an XL silk button up, undoubtedly owned previously by an OC dad for fishing trips to Catalina island, with a suede skirt and a vintage woven handbag. It’s an amusing collision of elements, but one that operates politically on a personal level as well. I take meaning in the re-contextualization of discarded artifacts of domesticity. The resulting look forges a bizarre fashion genre - indicative of the banal environment in which it was created and as the sound of a fashion nerd groan.

The choice to photograph this look on the grounds of an insurance company functions in a similar way. The abstraction of the location to fit within my aesthetic vision is a subversive gesture in reaction against these ordinary, yet domineering spaces. I’m going to pose in a ludicrous outfit outside your office window until forcibly made to cease and desist.

[[MORE]]Summoning the spirit of Seditionaries and Rei Kawakubo’s punk side to manifest my own femininity. An abrasive and withholding style of sexual sportswear - the red mesh functions more as a knotty repellent than a sensual invitation. Layered with protective cotton and leather pieces to transform my body into a fortress, while still allowing a glimpse at its tender center.Photos taken in collaboration with SAM VALDEZ
