The multifaceted nature of streetwear is still overwhelming to me. While quickly and hastily getting dressed for a makeshift after-work post, I realized how much I love different skater and hip-hop street brands, as it gives so much leeway for self-expression. This is especially true in my case, as one of my favorite things to do is push the envelope by wearing t-shirts as dresses (thank you TAYLOR MOMSEN for inspiring the world to do so).

Another cool thing about this outfit: I thought I had retired these tights back in March after wearing them to BURGERAMA III in Santa Ana, CA, and having them completely destroyed. While going through some things I still haven’t unpacked into my new house, I discovered that I still own them, and decided to wear them one last time before tossing them. We’ve had some great times together, stockings. You will be missed.
