Your High School Girlfriend

Cure t-shirt: MC's
Plaid skater skirt: Free People
Flannel: MC's
Over the knee socks: Cronet via Sockdreams
Suspenders: Sockdreams
Ankle Boots: Juicy Couture
Little circular sunglasses: Vintage via Giantvintage

Maybe it's the 90's OTK socks and the Lennon glasses. Maybe it's the fact that we stole away to the woods to take these in the middle of the day. But something about the way MC cooed and swooned as he photographed me in his Cure t-shirt made me feel like the theme of this shoot was Teenage Obsession.









In high school, we used to sneak off into the woods to escape our teachers and be free to do whatever it was we wanted to not be seen doing. Shakespeare sent his characters into the woods to play out fantastical, role-reversals and mystical romances. As I've gotten older, I've realized that teenagers and Shakespeare are more in tune than you would think. The excitement, the mystery, the obsession that I felt in love as a teenager -- I mistakenly thought these things were exclusive to the relationships of youth. But I find all these things in Cammila, minus the idiocy of emotional inexperience. I sneak off with her to the trees and feel the same giddiness, I think about her all day and feel the same obsession. The same, but deeper and better. The same, but less an extension of my own narcissistic teenage mind and more truly joyously about her. Turns out, those heightened feelings of high school don't have to disappear with our ability to be functioning adults. And for the record, she looks better in those Lennon shades and long socks than anyone I remember from the early 90's. -MC

  5. MC's note is so insightful! I never truly thought about it and it seems so true now! Plus the way the pictures have been colored is brilliant...whoever edited them is a genius as theme of the photographs could not have been more apparent!

    Plus the look is also pretty unique in itself. Seeing your style Cammila, I am often left wondering... hey why didn't I think of that.. :P
