Fluorescent Adolescent

Three important notes:
1. This is possibly the brightest, most fluorescent thing I own. It's the colour of salmon. On acid. Yes.
2. It was free. FREE. Yes, it was FREE! I got it at this quaint vintage shop in Vancouver. I entered and was greeted with a "If you're under sixteen, you can pick out something from that box over there." I was pretty stoked. I mean, it was free!
3. Safety pins are possibly my new best friend..

The Original:


Experimentation:



What I ended up wearing:
Seeing as the weather was sweltering today, I thought it'd be appropriate to wear the shirt off-shoulder.

(Shirt - Vintage $free, Shorts - Value Village $3, Shoes - Value Village $6, Belt - Forever 21 $12, Necklace - Thrifted $4, Bracelet - H&M $4)


That's the hidden sleeve. Special shout-out to my three safety pins! You guys rock!


Dancing?
I guess the best things in life really are free! ;-)
