I have this weird relationship with the color yellow- specifically canary yellow, and it keeps popping up in my life for various reasons.

My mom lived separately from me from when I was in about sixth grade up through high school, and sometime around 2005 she started keeping canaries. Canaries, like many birds, can get depressed if kept solo, and so it's usually better to keep more than one to prolong their lives and keep them from getting lonely. This also of course encourages them to sing, so my mom would keep up to four at a time.

She would let them fly around her apartment freely, and every so often your eyes would rest on a surface, and you'd find a delicate, bright yellow feather. I kept a few in my books as placemarks throughout school.

I also have a bright yellow vinyl cover for my work computer, with a matching solid canary yellow background to encourage creative brain chemistry- which is probably a placebo thing, but whatever, I like it.

So this weekend rolls around and I'm taking my boyfriends' family around Brooklyn with him. We took them into a brilliant local vintage shop called GG's, where I found this wool blazer. Now, I like yellow, but I never really considered wearing it, because with the hair it can be a bit much, y'know? But nah! Here I am with this new favorite thing, and it just so happens to be bright ass yellow.

Anyway, I dig it. That's all.

  2. I love your outfit. You have to be very bold to wear these colors. I don't know if this combination is perfect for me but at you looks perfect.
