route 999

Processed with VSCO with b5 preset

I have a minor Disneyland obsession. I find a lot of millennials do. I watched a news report the other day that said that it made sense because the world right now is so uncertain, so unsafe, so… generally hazardous, hazy and unpredictable.

I’d love to live in a world where Disneyland and “escaping reality” were unnecessary. But I don’t. And I feel really safe whenever I go there. I’ve been five times in the past few years. And every time I go there, I get a t-shirt. And that t-shirt makes me feel just a little bit bulletproof. Don’t get my wrong, I’m not crazy, I don’t think that a tee actually makes me bulletproof, but it kinda feels like a weird combination of a nice, warm hug, and a bulletproof vest slash army hummer.

Ok, back to the topic at hand. I’m calling this route 999 because the tee I’m wearing is from the Haunted House at Disneyworld (yes, Florida, not California). And their claim to fame is: 999 happy haunts… but there’s always room for one more.

I paired the tee with a simple slashed jean from Cotton On, which I love, but admittedly is not made for a shorty like me. I chose the shots above because they don’t show the fact that the holes in the knees are in the wrong spot (like, halfway down my shins) and because you don’t really notice the fact that I’ve chopped them off to make them the right length.

The pinstripe blazer, which I adore, is from Perri Cutten. And the shoes, which I also adore (and have been wearing a lot lately), are from Witchery. And they’re both wayyyyy out of season. And I thrifted the shoes from the Red Cross. But I love them both. And that’s what really matters.

Blazer: Perri Cutten
Jeans: Cotton On
Shoes: Witchery
Necklaces: Virgin Mary from Mexico, (similar available from, Long Lariat from Corelli Jewellery at Glebe Markets, Wishbone from Bryant Park Markets.
