Every time I wear round sunglasses my mister calls me "Yoko Ono." And more recently, his pops made a similar comment about an outfit I wore. Now I'm not sure if these statements are supposed to be compliments.. but I'll take it.
I actually prefer to look a little goofy and different. I've always thought I had the kind of style that wasn't crowd-pleasing. Not everybody gets is. And it definitely doesn't attract men. You know? But I prefer to be thought provoking in more than one way. So fashion too? Ah, it might be a stretch that I'd compare myself to Yoko Ono in that way [not like I was the reason a world-renowned band broke up or anything]. But I read an article a few years ago that talked about Yoko Ono and John Lennon's elaborate closet [when they traveled they reserved an entirely separate hotel room for their wardrobe.] Their pseudo-minimalism proceeded them. I'd love to have an extensive, pricy closet but look as though it were effortless.
More recently, I have been working on my accessories collection. Hats, sunglasses, scarves, etc. Hence, the over usage of my newest addition to the hat collection. It sort of has a worn out look to it. Which I prefer. It's become the perfect travel hat too. A good face-cover when I'm passed out on the plane with my mouth wide open.
Um, and yeah hi. I am obsessed with this Malia Top from Issa de' Mar. I want it in every color.. maybe two of every color. I am not even joking. It is the best fit.. ever. And works perfectly as a bralette when I'm not at the beach. And might I add.. they make your two ladies look a lot perkier than they are.
I have also been wearing my new obsession pretty much daily.. my baggy vintage Levi jean shorts. My dad gave me an old pair on work jeans and I cut them into shorts. The baggier the better. Next time I go home I'm asking him for more. They don't make jeans like they used to. I should shop in my dads closet more often. 20+ years of wearing them and he broke in the denim perfectly for me.
So for future reference: if you call me Yoko Ono or anyone else from that era who embraced fashion, art, and an alternative lifestyle.. I'm taking it as a compliment.
