  • ToriLynne August 13th, 2012 4:24 PM

    Amazing!! The last 4 shots are my favorites. So beautiful. And these jackets are so inspiring, I want to make my own!
    xo, Tori

  • Ysabel August 13th, 2012 4:26 PM

    can people please stop using skateboards as accessories

  • Eleanor August 13th, 2012 4:31 PM

    but we actually skate :(

    • Ysabel August 13th, 2012 8:58 PM

      thank the lord (in all seriousness), I’ve seen too many pictures on tumblr of models using skateboards as props to show some kind of message that they’re chill but rebellious. The world needs more girl skaters, for real though!

  • dianeisnotmyname August 13th, 2012 4:40 PM

    if you made some more of those and put them on etsy, I would buy ALL of them. Just saying :)

  • streaked lights August 13th, 2012 4:54 PM

    Ahhh I ADORE #12 and the bikini kill one! Those (ribbon?) flowers are absolutely adorable. You ladies should really make tutorials for these diy designs. :)

    • kellyissofab August 13th, 2012 5:57 PM

      Ah I agree! I need a tutorial for these. (Especially the Bikini Kill one I would rock that).

      • Phoebe August 13th, 2012 6:07 PM

        There is a tutorial coming later this week!

        • TessaTheTeenageWitch August 14th, 2012 12:48 AM

          NO WAY. Well now I’m excited.

        • dianeisnotmyname August 14th, 2012 10:18 AM


        • streaked lights August 16th, 2012 3:41 PM

          PERFECT. :D

  • Kathryn August 13th, 2012 5:14 PM

    I just realized that #3 reminds me a little bit of Miranda from Lizzie McGuire!

  • AlicesPlatforms August 13th, 2012 5:20 PM

    I love everything about this <3

  • firstcomestherain August 13th, 2012 7:13 PM

    I have been searching EVERYWHERE for those ubiquitous round 60′s shades in #16. Where can you find those?

  • AnguaMarten August 14th, 2012 1:01 PM

    so jealous of the polka dot tights/silver docs action going on here.

  • Annie92 August 14th, 2012 1:39 PM

  • jenjencm August 14th, 2012 8:08 PM

    I don’t know if anyone noticed but is it just me or does the girl in the second photo look like Amy Winehouse?

  • Orange You Apeeling August 16th, 2012 10:14 AM

    By George, this may be the best photo shoot I’ve seen on Rookie. The only way I can describe it is that my mind just took a nice jog around the creativity track and is now warmed up for fashion sprints ~.~

    • TessaTheTeenageWitch August 23rd, 2012 6:11 PM

      BY GEORGE. oh god that is the best expression.

  • yesweareopen September 5th, 2012 2:02 PM

    This might sound cheeky but I’m currently in the (rather stressed) midst of making a women’s music magazine protoype for my MA in publishing dissertation and I was wondering whether it would be ok to use your article for the prototype and, if it is, could you send me the original photos you have for the article, please? :)

    Obviously, it’s a piece of academic work so it won’t be published properly but you will be referenced and I can send you a digital copy of the magazine once it’s all finished, as a huuuuge thank you.

  • Mary the freak September 28th, 2012 9:31 AM

    These pictures are so freaking perfect and awesome. So much inspiration!
