holy fuck i think my heart just stopped.
this leather full body strap piece is way sicker then anything ive seen on the runways as of late.

residing in LA, Mildred von Hildegard specializes in conceptual design / costume / live performances , etc...
but this ... this is ready-to-wear worthy.

need these in my ears // french revue de mode magazine //

love kills //


a friend of mine was kind enough to give me two denim vest that he no longer wanted , and what better home then mine for them to enter into! i got to hear the stories behind them - when he added each piece, where they had been, etc.
 i know very little about caustic christ so fucking spare me. xx
 i do however know there is a pretty rad fucking past with both and i was happy to take them off his hands 

the cc jacket i decided not to tamper with // 
these pictures dont do it justice but you can def tell there was time and effort put into every single inch
 especially in the front which is doused on both sides with studs.

the second jacket though was pretty much mine for free reign / 
he had studded the the shoulders and back but i added a few flat black studs to the sides and the collar. 
i had sort of already planned in my head exactly what i wanted to sew onto the back 
it was just a matter of going through all my shit in my new place to find the fucking thing. 

for anyone not farmiliar with blacktooth , get yourself familiarized
knowing about the line for a few years now, i was stoked to hear carey haider was in the works with urban for a line
// we got a ton of really good t's , unfortunatly love kills never made it to the store
but it did make it my wardrobe ( along with another favorite east coast pussy with a west coast ass )
a quick cut and sew and voila - i kept the white inside of her arms because i could only foresee myself fucking that up.


the final result / a mistaken collaboration / lovekillsxdirtyflaws
