dressed up in you

by Rachel Lynch


In a previous life, we were lovers in Barcelona. You met me in a white dress, you were a music-making man. 

All I want is the best for our love, my dear. We'll begin the summer together, well aware of our endless numbered days. 

This delicate heart can't bear much else, it's already been through the riptide. Yet it moves along still, with the sentiment of the artist, truly knowing the world is good. 

Be gentle with me, I may drift awhile.

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of staying at the Petit Ermitage in West Hollywood. It had such a beautiful french feel with a boutique aesthetic. 

The best part by far was the roof. It had a romantic restaurant half inside/half outside with little tables hidden among the trees. It also had an amazing pool with big lounge chairs and Moroccan Rugs. It felt so intimate and private up in the Hollywood sky. 

Of course, I had to bring a shag jacket and a bathing suit for the pool. I was feeling so many Lana Vibes with this look. Both the bathing suit and the jacket are by Pretty Attitude! One of my favorite online shopping destinations.

I've been feeling bohemian lately - I don't know if it's the music I'm listening to, or New York. Helping me bring this inner bohemian-child to my daily dress code is House of Harlow 1960. If you're not familiar with the brand, it's designed by Nicole Richie and sells on Revolve

The black bodysuit and sequin jacket in this look are both from House of Harlow. I waited a while for these pieces to go on sale, and was so happy to get my hands on them when they finally did. I'm going to include links to shop, because they're still marked down! 

I've been wearing a lot of indie-label bohemian pieces as well, but to be honest, the quality just isn't as high. I'm proud of these two purchases, and know I'll get a lot of uses out of them. 

My rings are a mix of Verameat and Torchlight jewelry. I've been stacking so many on my hands everyday. 

Hope you all have an amazing Wednesday, get creative and put on some good tunes!

escape everything

by Rachel Lynch


"A composition - and every work of art is one -- is created in a wondrous interplay between imagination and reason, or between mind and reflection. For there will always be an element of chance in the creative process."

the life of a poet

by Rachel Lynch


I'd like to see you, but I really should let you settle down. Our souls floating in air. 

If we live by books, and we live by hope, does that make us failures in the eyes success? 

Bohemian dream queen. Little doll strumming guitar, she knows all the words. 

Rising from the mist of morning, taking responsibility for my past choices.

I hope I have the strength to start over again.

i hate pink

by Rachel Lynch


Here's a few pieces that have been in rotation in my closet lately. I've rediscovered a love for colors, wildfox and denim. 

The first pink sweater I got from wildfox when I was a freshman in college, like 6 years ago! I don't think I'll ever let it go. The way it drapes on the body is so perfect. 

The little polka-dot romper is by one of my favorite brands, Lioness. I feel like you can get really good pieces form their brand for an event for a good price. I'll also look through their selection if I need a new dress for something coming up. 

The little white so cliché tee is actually a bodysuit, with snaps at the bottom. It's part of wildfox's new collection. Super easy to wear, especially with faded high-waisted denim. 

Here's some links below to some some of the items that are still available online! 

Have the most awesome Wednesday babes!

the war of art and love

by Rachel Lynch


She lost her crazy when she fell in love. The edge that separated her and the world.

Comfort came against her will. And in this life, all you have is your fire. She wasn't sure if a passion for art could survive alongside a lifetime romance. Does love just seek to bore us, to bring us out of our wild? Maybe not love in it's purest form, but the social construct of love. 

Love inspires and then it suffocates, she wondered if the artist was destined to be alone. Solititude kept her body's edges sharp, love softened her hips.  

Humankind's main motivation is to seek and experience personal freedom, and she had many affairs of the heart. Little flings with other like-minded artists that gave way to boundless inspiration before they self-destructed. But this love was different - it was like the love of her father, the love of a family. It made her less wild, and she wasn't sure if she wanted that. 

We love purely when we release other people to be who they are. The ego seeks intimacy through control and guilt. The holy spirit seeks intimacy through acceptance and release. 

The other morning she read that the people you surround yourself with serve as excellent mirrors for how much, or how little you love yourself. 

It was then that she began to realize she loved herself very much.

mind games

by Rachel Lynch


If I walk away, I'm scared I won't find other muses. 

I find myself alone in the world I've created again. Reaching out to help others, but never letting them in. 

I'm inclined to love, unaware of who I'm bringing inside myself. So ambitious for a small girl with pink hair. 

I feed others with inspiration and kind words, but my own soul is starving. I am to please, blind to the fact that I am displeasing myself. 

The artist seeks to be alone, an introvert in every conceivable idiosyncrasy. 

To lack sincerity about the reason you are doing something, is only doing yourself a disservice. 

Go inside yourself, and be alone there. Find out who you are, and what you really want. 

Because that is the only way I know.

SHIMMER SCRUB

by Rachel Lynch


Calling all mega babes: frank body’s new Shimmer Scrub was released today, and it’s the answer to your disco beauty, no pants-party dreams. It's super magical, especially for a pink-haired unicorn like myself.

It's hyper-moisturizing, with grapeseed oil and Vitamin E. You'll notice it upon first touch. It's still a coffee scrub like its cult-favorite Original Coffee Scrub, but this limited edition baby also features shiny tiny gold and silver particles with electrical properties. Just the way a highlighter works to make your face glow, Shimmer Scrub does that for your skin. 

If you'd like to give it a whirl, you can purchase here

SAINT BLONDE

by Rachel Lynch


I feel the sky just split, the girl that I am and the girl that I used to be. 

In time, I will be stronger and you will be happy. My story will be my own, no contributing artists. 

Was I just a number to you? Time heals the heart, but dreams keep the memories alive.

I cracked under the loss of you, turned to all kinds of bad habits. Still chasing the independence I had before any lover of mine wanted to own me. It feels like running backwards, but I know the mind is a romantic. 

Love me rough. I'll be there soon. It's enough for me just know you and I exist in this moment. 

There is always something left.
