LIPSTICK STAINS / / VINTAGE SKIRTS



Gold vintage skirt and oversized leather vest. Hot pink lipstick to kill. Messy hair, thirsty heart. Starbucks and cigarette in hand, ready to take over the night. 

She lays down on the wall, laughing up to the stars; trying to keep her balance and not fall over the side and off the rooftop parking lot. The rush though, it feels so good. Isn't it weird how putting ourselves in danger or at risk can lead to something almost like an excitement running through our veins? 

Sometimes we just need one thing, one tiny little thing to get us through. Just one thing and then we're okay.

Leaving lipstick stains and breaking hearts everywhere they go.
 A bystander saw them playing in the abandoned lot and never had he seen two people so alike. So full of bliss from just being around each other and creating an art they had fallen in love with. So motivated to turn their visions into reality. The world isn't ready for them. Everywhere they went, they set the streets on fire.

FREE FALL



Fall in love with everything happening around you. 
Yacht party on a perfect summer day in Chicago. Can we stay here forever? This is paradise. Do we really deserve to be here? Champaign toasts and Lana Del Ray blasting through the speakers. Summertime Sadness. The girls all done up for the ride. We sit on top of the boat, cigarette in one hand and a cup of the best red wine we'll ever have in the other. We live in this moment and leave everything else behind. "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."

Laughing up to the sky, it's a total free fall. Free falling into this very moment. This perfect perfect moment that we want to stay in forever. Let go of anything that's bringing you down and fall into everything good. Whatever is bringing you happiness, hold onto it and focus on that. Bad vibes out, only the good ones in. 

We are all meeting for the first time but it feels like we were childhood friends. Finding people who have the same dreams as you and want to do something with their life. We all want to be a part of that world. Standing at the edge of the boat moving to the music, painting pictures in the air with the emerald green scarves moving against the wind. The girls laugh and joke in their bikinis, soaking up the hot summer sun. Bubblegum smiles and Lady Danger on the lips. This is paradise.

THIS DREAM









"This dream, this is all that I have." She left her heart in New York and couldn't find a way back. Wearing nothing but a leather bodysuit and some studded creepers, she threw on a metallic moto and played in the streets. In her bag there's nothing but her polaroid camera and red lipstick. She dreams in black and white. 

Too much of the human life is lost in waiting. She lays in the street, closing her eyes to see a different world. A world she so  yearns to be a part of. Nothing else can create a state of bliss as following your passions can. This dream is all that I have. 

Jumping around and dancing to Iggy Azalea, snagging her thigh highs but it doesn't matter because of her endless supply in the pink container in her closet. Don't ever try to tell her she can't do something, you have no idea what this girl is capable of. The art we love to see and love to create just reveals parts of our most secret self. Parts that haven't been shared with people, not that we don't want them to be. For now she'll keep dreaming up a world inside her head until one day she can be a part of it.
