Plaid Behavior

cache faux leather jacket, brandy melville shirt, uo lace bra, jcrew plaid pants (similar here) steve madden platforms

Shot these in the absolute chill of the morning.  If you look closely, I'm sure you can spot mean goosebumps running up my arm.  Sticking to the usual dark toned hues with a pop of color down below and adding a little bit of necessary grunge with a wide open tee.
What was once a straight legged oversized pair of mess has now turned to a form fitting flared pair of glory with help from my sewing machine. It's always nice to be your own tailor, but strikingly difficult to be your own model.  One man show; it's how I roll.
