It's over.

Well kind of.

KFace moved (again) to the States, and is no longer picking through trash to my knowledge. She has a kickass lifestyle blog, Campy Attributes--check it, yo!

I'm totally still picking through the trash. And wearing and eating it, and sometimes napping on it.

Sometimes I write about it, or make comics. 


Thank you all so much, for joining us on our trashy journey of self-discovery, not getting scabies, and pants.

Creeper Basement

Have you ever entered a basement that looks like it is straight out of a horror movie? Like, drains in the floors, peg boards with random tools hanging, walls that look like they have secret compartments and plywood hanging over the areas where victims have tried to claw their way out? I am sure EVERYONE has experienced this at least once...well, our friend now OWNS one of these basements, and in Fairbanks winter, it becomes a perfect place to take over for an Arrogantly Shabby shoot.

On Kface: Vintage Graphic Tee; Male Model: Silk Batiked dress used as scarf; Vintage distressed leather coat with an AMAZING lining (for sale here); distressed hunter green graphic tee; Forrest colored Woolrich plaid flannel.

As we get older, I see a trend occurring among not only Ruckus and I, but out friends as well. QUALITY over quantity. This extends to the transfer station as well, where we will pick up wool, leather, silks, etc rather than the newest trendy polyester or rayon pants and tops. Its cute, but acrylic? well... I don't see how that will stand the test of time. Yes, this is really happening.

On Ruckus: Vintage leather distressed jacket; Ivory Peasant top; Tan Ugg brand midcalf boots; tweed and leather shoulder bag. Male Model : Leather and faux-fur collared waist coat

Classic shapes and elements also become more prevalent. A good Leather coat, a day to night transitional purse with no flashy details, and solid layers that make it easy to be warm and stylish in our Alaskan interior.

On Ruckus: navy, oxblood and white Woolrich plaid flannel; Black Ugg brand ankle boots; Male Model: white and salmon thin plaid pearl button summer shirt. On Kface: Men's grey and brown plaid flannel
       
On a separate note, can we talk about how we are all products of the early Nineties Calvin Klein ads?
