moncler ss13 floral down reversible shirt.
hippy woodsy love affair.
my friend jack made these mittens for my birthday, and they are incredible, especially considering they are his first attempt at making mittens! they are waterproof and warm and really, really tough, and i’m sure they will last me a lifetime. he’s really a gifted maker. check his site, www.raerden.com to see what he’s up to and learn more.
When I was around 15, sufficiently- and tragically- proven adventurous, if not downright dangerous- my mother began giving me all kinds of accumulated clothing from her hard-won years as a Tomboy. My favorites were a down filled bubble vest from the seventies, and, at a close second, an old school buffalo plaid wool overshirt her mother had given her as runner up prize for not being born a boy. They were weird like that.
Those vestments were inspirational. My mom was a total badass, and had a vicious spirit of determination. I was so proud of my lineage, vis-a-vis, her- and was constantly eager to emerge victorious in the visceral test of man verse nature to validate the intense pursuit I had dedicated to my own interests. One afternoon, I embarked on a 33 mile hike with nothing but my dog through freezing snow; I emerged hobbling two days later. Another, I stole my mother’s vintage championship canoe and tried to navigate the vicious, black, whitewater that only flows through a New England River, only during a New England Hurricane. I very nearly lost my right arm in a futile attempt to salvage the vessel. I did not return home till my arm had mended. I even tried to track and trap a notorious black bear, in hopes of either making it my pet, or being respectfully indoctrinated into its bad-ass bear culture. I engaged in all foolhardy manner of crazy ass endeavor, and it defies the odds of reason that I am still alive to write about it, but maybe- like– jussssst maybe, those clothes my mom gave me at that pivotal and character-defining period of my life not only provided me the requisite physical barrier between my otherwise ill prepared body and the elements on all those journeys of self-discovery- able to do so after having been worn on so many similar, previous odysseys- but they may have also been infused with a righteous magic all its own. The glory of past battles won inextricably intertwined in its very thread. Every time I went walkabout in the cold, wild mountains, no matter how desperate or ill prepared, when I wore my Woolrich CPO, I felt invincible, and I came back. Every. Single. Time.
get yours here.
definitely see a lot of promise in these. @neouterwearco
and on this one afternoon- it was right when we met- it was so hot that summer- I remember I got out of work early, and I called you, but you didn’t answer, and I was biking home, thinking it was ok, because I was really happy anyways, but then I ran into you and you were leaving work and you had left your phone at home, so that’s why you didn’t answer, and I convinced you to go with me to this place I read about out of town called the Arborelles and it was only a short ways away, and you were like, yeah, ok, why not? and then we bought some soda and sandwiches wrapped in wax paper, and I had brought that half bottle of red wine my roommate left in the fridge, and we put it all in my knapsack and we got to the place around 2, and then we locked our bikes in the parking lot and walked into the woods, even though we didn’t know where we were going, and we just began exploring, and then we randomly found that secret pond, and we carefully laid down the blanket and then unpacked our ginger ale and cream soda and half bottle of malbec and then you unwrapped those ham and cheese baguette sandwiches, and arranged them neatly next to the wine and soda, but then we ended up making out under the trees and knocked it all over anyway, and I looked up and there was this beautiful ring of pure, white light shining through this open space in the leaves above us, and I remember thinking, yes. Yes.
