new moon

by Rachel Lynch in


lunarwings feathersLanding on the new moon and feeling at home. She is every story she wants to be. Every novel, every quote came pouring through her eyes. Her spirit matched her strength, they were both woven together by the most fearless of historic heroines.

She doesn't read minds, but she is made of patience. That's all it takes. A little patience and a little faith. And she swore, love is never done. Love is a luxury.

no baby, i'm an animal

No baby, I'm an animal. I chose to dive down the rabbit hole. I'm like Alice, I find this life rather curious. I could of lived a normal life, but my childhood was filled with too many fairlytales, and I decided to live out the things I found in books. There's no room to grow up in your world, I'm still playing, still making magic. When you imagine, you create. I created my blonde world out of stockings and shoes, out of milk and glitter. People come in and out of my world, but here I remain. They add meaning to my walls and details to my story. There is no limit to how wonderful I want those in my world to feel. I want them to taste all the magic I have, to drink from the cup of creative love I was offered. You see, some people want to punish you for seeing the world a certain way, but I intend to take those people and build a treehouse with them.

Everything is illuminated.

So stoked to show off this little collab I did with Nina Palomba. Literally some of the coolest art I've ever seen. Her whole site is unbelievable and I recommend following her on instagram. So stoked to be moving into her neighborhood, expect much more goodness.

It's amazing how close I bring myself to death just to feel a little alive. I just want things to be back to the way they used to be. The truth is, I felt so alive with you. I've already stopped wearing clothes. They hang on my body in ways I don't relate to. You sort of filled everything in this way nothing could. I read Paradise Lost with my head on your chest. Skin to skin under the sun's warm excellence.

I thought we were going everywhere, but the truth is we were traveling no where. With you, I was the sun girl. The precious, pale child who was content in not caring. Now I have opinions and feelings of loss. These things were never a part of me before, I struggle to fit them into my identity. Carmel dripping down my spine, I have known the taste of pure happiness. But now, it was lost in the salt of the sea burning under the sun. The pure lemon golden aura had faded into a blue dust that subtly engulfed my room.

DIRTY LITTLE HEARTS

dirtylittlehearts2 followyouwhereeveryourmindgo1dirtylittlehearts<31 dirtylittlehearts1 IMG_4346 copy movies1 movies2dirtylittlehearts3 highlife1 IMG_4339 copy prettylittlehearts5Dirty little hearts. Dirty little girl in her dirty little life. Dirty little thoughts in her dirty little mind. Dirty little lips, dirty little lies. Summer of love. What would I have to do to call you mine? 21 years young, and living to die. Watching movies with the sound off. We're making magic for the fuck of it. Still eating gummy bear vitamins and frozen popsicles. Now the world's in color. She tastes like a tangerine. People wanna know how we can be that weird. We just keep on living with our appetite for sweet, sweet adventure.

Welcome inside the Blonde Fun House, where the wild girls wear fur and things go bump in the night. Too many toys and rainbow jewels covering the halls. Champagne pouring on the white sofa and sitting down to a rainbow candy diet. Sunglasses at night and golden pumps on the spiral staircase, we're seeing through kaleidoscopes. We are the wild ones, we are the blondes. 

What's up my sexy ladies? I'm so excited to announce that now you can shop items hand-picked by me through my new online store! I went on an awesome secret buying mission a little bit ago and picked out some goodies that are now for sale. This is a soft launch, there are only a few of each item... we'll be adding a lot more in a few weeks. Anyways, we had a dope time creating this lookbook and the entire team was so wonderful to work with. 

So check out my new online store, and start playing this summer in the fun house <3

FROSTY TROPICAL SUMMER

Tropical summer frost. Feather heat and hibiscus flowers. Rich oranges and purples in the air. Textured plants. Reflective sunglasses, crystal blue mirror images. Get ready for the summer frost. Wear flowers on your shorts and in your hair with liquid blue in your eyes. Summer's hot, are you?

I'm so inspired when it comes to the weather getting warmer. I start building my outfits around my sunglasses. What are your favorite type of sunglasses for this season? As I've said before, I'm really feeling the blue tinted mirror frames. I'm thinking of getting an aviator pair.

Let summer and sunglasses inspire you, kisses from Manhattan.

School Daze. Raising hell in the hallways. High heels and uniform skirts. Drug store makeup and Lisa Frank stickers. Covering notebooks in boys names and glitter. Skipping lunch to ride to the beach. Boys in cars. Drinking champagne at prom. Girls in leggings in the hallways. Lunch time gossip. Ice cream and candy as a meal. Being girls, no boys allowed.

As many of you know, Rebecca Michelle worked with me this semester for her high school internship. She is a beautiful soul and a talented artist. I was so lucky to have her work with me for I HATE BLONDE. We had so much fun creating all the lovely images for this zine. Each photoshoot was an adventure. We actually had a prom, a beach adventure, etc, etc. All of this is just what we captured from the few days we spent together. I'm excited for to go off to art school in New York and discover herself as the beautiful artist she is.
