This is my favorite old man, located on the side of a building which I believe to be a storage unit on Alvarado. It’s two stories tall and makes me smile every time I drive past it. This picture is what I love about living in Los Angeles. Street art has become hip and trendy, thanks to “the Banksy documentary” (aka “Exit Through the Gift Shop”) and to be honest, I kind of love it. Murals, scribbles, quotes, pictures plastered on the sides of buildings– this visual form of expression is everywhere I look (even right outside of my living room window). This is why I love fashion. For those of us who aren’t artistically inclined, we choose to express ourselves in a different way: by what we choose to put on our bodies, we are also choosing to showcase a certain message to the world. I can’t wait to share with you what I see, hear, feel, and gush over. Thank you for coming to my brand new tumblr. I hope to see you again soon. <3Jess.
