Summer weather and the freedom to wear what you want

Had a busy day today, just got back from another trip to the California desert Tuesday and Im already behind on school work again. I went to Backspace for coffee to read for a class, then ended up spending money on a blogging book too, then a soldering iron to work on my new necklaces which are awesome and you will want 10 of. On my way from the train to my apartment I pass the local mall and once in a while I’ll see some awesomely dressed person walking the same way. Today it was Cloudy. Unspeakably awesome style….

Tel Aviv, go there.

I once had a chance to move to Tel Aviv, but under the circumstances it was not   the right time or for the right reasons. It’s an amazing city, modern, diverse, interesting and full of   people and things to take photos of.

San Fran Weekend

This last weekend was great! I went to San Francisco for four days for a surprise birthday party. It was my first time and even though it rained and flooded the first day, with a prognosis of more rain all weekend, it cleared up the last 3 days just for us! We went to Haight street and shopped for a while. There were masses of vintage and recycled clothing stores as well as great new stuff like a Kid Robot store and RVCA outlet! Overall the prices were to be expected from one of the most spendy cities in the…
