California Summer

California Summer

My goodness, it’s been a while!  While I was in a definite need of a break from the blog, I am so happy to be back!  And if you didn’t already notice on Instagram, I’m now One Turn Kiss, rather than One Turn Kill.  Unfortunately there is too much negativity and violence happening in the world and my name was being associated with it.  I know that all of you know that I am quite the peaceful person (at least I hope by now you do…), and that I just want everyone to be nice and of course for everything to be cute…  But I couldn’t stand my name having such a negative connotation, and for that reason I have decided to push it all the way to the opposite end of the spectrum with a great big KISS!  So, that is that and everyone be safe and kind and lovey.  The outfit!  That’s why you are here, right?!?  This outfit totally screams California summer to me.  It’s relaxed and easy, baggy shorts and some vans, with the perfect amount of girly-ness in the lace top.  Plus, said lace lets the breeze in and baggy shorts aren’t too confining.  It’s pretty perfect if you ask me!   Top: Tea & Cup // Shorts: Urban Renewal // Sunglasses: Armani // Shoes: Vans Over Washed Sk8-Hi (Unfortunately the version I am wearing isn’t available in stores anymore, but you can always get the classic version...

I actually brought this band jacket home with me from Utah in December, but with LA being so LA, and the jacket being so very wool-y, I couldn’t break it out until the freezing temps of NY.  My mom was out vintage hunting one day and sent me a picture of it with a big (???).  I was like (!!!).  And here we are, months later with patches/pins a blazin’.   I felt like these over-the-knee boots from Valas Los Angeles were a shoo-in with the jacket, something about the military inspired look of the band jacket and the laces of the boots just screamed “PUT ME TOGETHER!”  So I did, and it works!   The shorts on the other hand, were more of a mistake than anything else.  I was like, I need shorts with these boots! So I went to find shorts in the mess of an apartment that was my life post-move/pre-New York, and these were all that I could dig up.  In order to find out if shorts were going to work with the outfit, I tried them on before searching longer and harder for more shorts.  Et voilá!  Not only would shorts be G-R-E-A-T, this very pair was just right!   Kind of silly in the cold, I know, but don’t worry!  I had thermals on under all of my clothing, and big snuggy socks under my boots!  I was still freezing, I’m not going to lie to you, it was COLD.  Oh the things we do in the name of fashion… Band Jacket: Vintage // Shorts: Vintage // Boots: Valas Los Angeles Stevie...
Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

This REBEL wall!  And how perfect with this outfit?  I loved the blue wall as well, which was near the REBEL wall, for the detail shots.  I love when a wall just compliments the outfit so perfectly, it ends up making the entire shoot so much more fun.  It kind of set the mood for the whole thing, you know?  I was obviously on one because look at all of the faces!  I’m just so silly, I know.   The clothes though, let’s talk about those!  I was on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing while in New York.  Who am I kidding? I’m always on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing.  I was so in love with the idea of fringe on my pants and a little extra tassel (in a lot of a extra color), on my neck!  One bright blue & gold Poppy Lissiman choker comin’ right up!  I decided to keep the shirt black & white, to accentuate the choker, and gave extra pops with the red sunglasses and sneaky-sneaks.   These sneakers were such a go-to while running around the city.  So comfortable!  Plus, fringe is made for movin’ and shakin’, so you have to have comfy shoes to do just that.  Again, who am I kidding?  You have to have comfy shoes to do anything in my eyes.  Ain’t no body got time for heels!  Except for sometimes.  Alright, I’m talking myself into one massive hole here because we all know that if you hand me a cute heel, I’mma make it work.   Especially if they have tassels.    Top: The Fifth Label via BNKR // Shorts: Rachel Comey //...
