wearing : thrifted diane von furstenberg polo, plastic heart beads from a friend

Pretending I'm a photographer because I'm loaded down with film essays and readings (blah). I've owned this polo for like 5 years but I don't wear it enough, but Tyra would be proud because I'm doing a collar pop - fashion!

The tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line.

This indian summer we're having has rekindled my love for tennis-wear and trainers. With the 90's still the popular 'vintage' of choice, I've picked a selection of items which nod to sportswear, kitsch and 90's/Millennium style. Consider this a 'Trend Alert' for the tumblr generation.   

I figure most these items would look super together, my brain is going wild over all the different combinations. Imagine the glitter trainers with the silvers shirt and python print skort? That'd be real cute. The key to perfecting this eclectic 2000's revival are prints, metallic's and visible brand emblems. Fusing urban street style, vintage tennis dresses and bubblegum girl power pieces like buffalo boots and a-line skirts. Cute without being too twee, but nobody will mind if you tune into Hazel's sweet playlist's and go grab a cheeseburger.
