inspiration in the rabbit hole




IMAGES via TUMBLR


Tumblr is such a weird place. 

It's like a rabbit hole engineered by hipsters and hair dye addicts. It exists in that strange space of the internet where you swear you were only on for twenty minutesbut it was actually twenty years and you now have google glass embedded in your brain and...wait. Sorry, got a little involved there. The point is, it's easy to get lost. But that's not always a bad thing.

Its not hard for me to stay inspired, but every once in a while I begin feeling le shlump. You know the one, where all your outfits start looking like Forever 21 mannequin rejects? That one. When I feel it creeping, I head for the other blog. Most of the time this is like two in the morning, so I end up reblogging nothing but grainy photos of obscure French actresses leaning over balconies, but sometimes, that's all it takes. I wake up with a new way to style my stripes, or a craving for a slightly-out-of-date hairstyle. Sometimes, it's not even that direct.

As you can tell from the above screencaps, the things I enjoy looking at range quite far out of the realm of what I would actually wear/would want to live. I think that's where most people lose their way with the inspiration thing: you can be inspired without needing to directly become your inspiration. Unless your inspiration is Rihanna, and you can, in which case, BECOME THE INSPIRATION.


In short: follow my tumblr.

many ways to fall






#teenvogue 
CARDIGAN c.o. LIVING DOLL LA
 SHIRT: J. CREW
JEANS c.o. DSTLD
BOOTS: DR. MARTENS
RUCKSACK c.o. BAGGU
BELT: VINTAGE
RINGS c.o. STELLA & BOW + CHINCHAR MALONEY
WATCH: ASOS

 This is officially a FALL outfit. Just wanted to put that out there.

IT IS FINALLY RAINING HERE. WATER IS COMING FROM THE SKY.
Thank you for your prayers/rain dances/voodoo sacrifices.

You know when you order something, then while you're waiting for it you start to double think it? Like "hmm did I really like that color" or "am I even going to wear that"?? That was me with this cardigan. In the past, I haven't really been a "cardigan person", so I was skeptical.

Three words: it. has. pockets.

I'd have been sold on that alone, but now I've gotten rather attached to it's swinging coziness, and the color that is bright enough to not be schlub, but lowkey enough to match nearly everything. It's perfect for the so called "smart temperature control" at school. The "smart" part is that you have to be smart enough to be psychic and know that morning if the classroom is going to be freezing or the sixth circle of Dante's inferno.

 Speaking of school: in these photos, my bag is full of my schoolbooks for ONE class. I have to carry that up and down four flights of stairs and it is literally backbreaking. If you don't believe me, you can talk to Charlie in 207, because he's in a body cast. FROM GERMAN HOMEWORK. Solid proof that school is a health hazard + a sturdy backpack is the only thing between you and imminent stair tripping.

I wear nothing but docs to school to minimize my injury potential. So far it's working out quite well except for the starbucks barista who thinks it's the height of comedy to call me "combat girl". Forget to put in my caramel and you'll see combat buddy.  I stopped wearing my burgundy ones for a while because it was summer and it felt weird, but now that we're pretending it's fall, it's okay again.

I'm not even going to talk about the stripy shirts 
because I don't want to tip off my mum as to how many I own.

 ps.  this whole post was a run-on pun 
pps. don't forget this cardigan

how utterly pants (jeans)

HIGH WAISTED SKINNY JEANS  c.o DSTLD


Pants.

1. a very necessary clothing piece
2. a great way to say "rubbish"

I've said it before and I'll say it again: denim is a classic for a reason.
It is also a classic pain in the butt to find a pair of jeans that fit you properly.
Especially if you don't have a butt. Like me.

Every single pair of jeans I've ever had are deficient in some way. 
That weird waist thing where it sticks out in the back, the knee bunchy bit, 
or the *worse* of all - loose ankles. Don't even get me started on loose ankle struggle.

DSTLD promised they had it down, so I went full hog. Dark indigo wash, high waisted, skinny jeans. Simple enough, but hard to get right. They arrived, fit, and I was hopeful. A month later, THEY STILL FIT and it's a miracle on level with grilled cheese Jesus. No less.

I have worn these jeans in every possible situation, because I trust you guys with my selfies, and you trust me to give you solid opinions on jeans. So they went to the Boardwalk, the an airplane, two ambassador retreats, several roadtrips, quite a few soccer games, and every other outfit I've worn since they arrived. I've run (ok, kidding, but I could run if I WANTED to), done yoga, criss-cross applesauce'd on the quad lawn, and climbed stairs.  Fair and photoshoots, they survived it all. There's no rips, no fading, no stretching, and the waist is still on my waist. Majorly impressive for a pair of $65 jeans.  They're my new favorite ~capsule wardrobe~ piece, mainly because I know they always look good. That's worth some serious sartorial street cred. 

Gold stars to DSTLD. All of them.

rose swing



wildflower kimono + shirt: c.o element eden // jeans : c.o dstld denim // boots: miss roberta

First thing I would like to say:

It's totally socially acceptable to live in a kimono. 

Especially one covered in roses and fringe. I know I'm totally late to the game (let's be honest, that's nothing new), but this is a MAGICAL article of clothing. It makes my uniform of boots, basic jeans, and a shirt ~iNdIe and mYstEriOs~. 

The best way I've described it is 
"If a New Orleans voodoo priestess moved to LA, this is what she'd wear to Urth."

I don't know, it made sense at the time.

Both the kimono and the shirt I'm wearing (which I love a lot, even though it's way off my usual style) are both from Element Eden, who I've fallen head over heels for. You'll be seeing some more of their rad stuff here in the next couple of outfits. If I manage to take off the kimono. No promises.

Anyway, how is everybody? What's new? Eat anything interesting? I know it's only been a week since my last post, but that is basically forever. Life has gotten very busy very quickly, what with school, and 4-H, and other general life-ishness,  and when I don't post for a while I feel all discombobulated. 

Just to even it out, here's some general life updates:

* Madeline & I were included in the top five finalists in the Teen Vogue Olay Fresh Effects #BFFSofBeauty contest, and if you voted for us, we would love you even more than we already do. I mean, first we'd have to figure out if that's possible, but technicalities. You can also win one of 10 Olay prizes, so it's a win-win scenario. 

*I went square on instagram, and it's weird and new and you should probably follow me, just to, y'know, form your own opinions and stuff.

*I only mention it on a passing basis, but 4-H is the flip side of my *hair swish* Hannah Montana life. Last week was National 4-H Week, so I finally broke my silence. Via the internet, obvs.

*My newest television obsession: Keeping Up Appearances. I can't explain it. It's a netflix thing.


There's definitely something I'm forgetting.
 But it's not to wear my kimono.

Interview // Alex & Sierra



 I first met Alex & Sierra on the orange carpet at the 2014 Kids Choice Awards. 
I'm not a huge X Factor follower, so I had only vague impressions that they had won some singing competition show, and judging by how excited the other reporters were, they had some higher level of talent. Then they got to my stop on the carpet, and that's history. They are two of the most talented + adorable humans I've ever met, and thankfully, 
think excited fangirling is completely acceptable during interviews.



Justina: Hey guys, it's been a while!

 Sierra: It has! I'm sorry we didn’t get to see you at Teen Choice!

Oh my god, did you see me waving like a lunatic? That’s so embarrassing. The girl who was standing next to me was like “Um, who are you waving at?” and I shouted “ALEX AND SIERRA”.

 
Alex: Did she ask “who’s that?” 


I very quickly educated her, but how would you describe your sound to people who don’t know you?
 
S: Oh man...Oh, I know! I wrote it down once. It’s a teaspoon of pop, a cup of singer-songwriter, a sprinkle of fun, and a dash of energy.

A: You didn’t know what you were getting yourself into with that question.

You know, I ask that a lot, and every time the answer surprises me, but that’s the first time it’s ever been really cute.

S: Well thanks! There’s so many different styles of music we like, and I think it kinda reflects in the songs that we write. There’s a little bit of everything in it.

I actually asked because I listened to all of your music and all your X Factor covers, and had no idea how to describe you, so I thought I’d just have you do it.

S: Yeah, yeah. It is hard to describe, but we like it.

I like it too. So you know you’ve got one in the corner. This next question might be a little harder, or maybe not. Here we go: Alex, if you only had one word to describe Sierra, and Sierra, one word for you to describe Alex, what would it be?


A: Oh shoot. Um...I think “cute” is the best describing word for her. Because she IS cute, but she also acts cute.

S: You’re funny. Um...-

A: Was that flattering enough?

S: It was exactly what I would expect you to say. Oh man, there’s always so much pressure when you have to pick just one word. Then ten minutes later I’m always like “Huh, this word would have been so much better!”. But I think one good word to describe Alex, and I think he’ll enjoy it, is “funny”. One of his favorite things to do is make people laugh, and that’s one of my favorite things about him.

A: Good answer.

Laughter and fun are so important. I just had a conversation with someone about how important it is to me that musicians enjoy the music they’re creating. Some just don’t and it makes me sad.

A: Yeah that sucks. You can’t take it too seriously, the whole point of music is to enjoy it, have fun, smile, cry, just feel something. You can’t do it like it’s, you know, saving the world. It’s just us up there, chilling.

I like that. Speaking of your music, let’s talk about your single, Scarecrow. What’s the story behind it?

S: Okay, so -
A:
*starts coughing*
S:
You good?
A:
Yeah, sorry.
S:
Sorry, Alex is choking and we’ve got you on speaker. But anyways, the story behind Scarecrow is definitely us. Every relationship, we think, has to communicate to be successful. The song is about how one person is the scarecrow who doesn’t communicate, and that’s Alex, but you care so much about your relationship that you’re going to work through it because nothing can stop you from being together. It’s a hopeful song, and you know, we really wanted an upbeat, hopeful song to counteract all our really sad X Factor songs


Veering into X Factor for a minute, which of your covers on the show was your favorite?

A: Um.. *both Alex and Sierra start laughing* Funny enough, my favorite was “I Knew You Were Trouble”. I don’t know, there was something about that song, I think it was mainly that we had come up with the version that we performed on the show maybe eight months prior to actually being on the show. So it was something we’d been doing at our little gigs in Daytona, and it was a really special song to me for that reason. Then to have a 28 or whatever piece band playing something that we had written was so cool, and to dress up like we did... it was like we were taking on alter egos. It had a Roaring Twenties vibe, and I didn’t play the guitar for the first time on the show. That was one of those performances where I can put myself back on the stage and relive it.

Do you still listen to it?

A: *sheepish laughter* The recording of it is actually my alarm, so literally every time I set an alarm, that’s the song it plays. That’s kind of douchey, isn’t it?

Well mine is usually me talking, so I think you’re good.

A: Okay, well, as long as there’s other people who like to hear themselves wake them up in the morning, we’re good.

Yeah, I’m a lot nicer than the rest of my family, so I’d rather hear myself in the morning. Sierra, do you have a favorite?


S: Well I did like “I Knew You Were Trouble”, for the same reasons, but I also really enjoyed doing “Say Something”, because I got to play an instrument, and show that I can do something other than just stand there, so that was special for me. But I was SO nervous. You can’t really see it on the show, but my foot, on the pedal of the piano? It was shaking so bad. You know when you pet a puppies stomach, and then it tickles them, and their leg starts shaking? That’s what it looked like. I got lucky though, and they had fog come out, which kind of covered it.

Well the good news is that now you can just think about rubbing a puppies stomach every time you’re nervous, and maybe that will help?


S: Hahah, I hope so!

Okay, I got us a little offtrack there, but lets get back to the music. I LOVE the video for Scarecrow. What was your favorite part of filming?


S: The part that’s super in the field with the sunset, that was the first day of shooting, and we were at the top of this mountain in Malibu, which you’d never know. We’re standing in the middle, and there’s this track built in a circle around us, so the camera could circle, and we’re singing the last chorus of Scarecrow, which is the biggest one. We really had to sing too, because we can’t lipsync, so we’re screaming it out along with the song. We were both tearing up by the end, because it was so emotional, and we were so into it. For lack of a better term, it was a really magical moment.

That is so cool. I love that you can feel the song, and your personalities in the video. Apparently, there’s something missing though. Alex, a fan wrote me on twitter and wanted to know what happened to your freckles in the video? I guess they’ve disappeared?

A: I didn’t know I had freckles.
S:
Wait, let me look at you. I don’t know, there might be a few? I think it’s honestly probably because we’re from Florida, so when he’s tanner, there might be some freckles that pop up?

I felt like I needed to bring it up because she’s the only one who brought it up.
A: That’s the ONLY person who’s ever asked.

Well now we know. Okay, let's get a bit in about  your album because I AM SO EXCITED. It’s called “It’s About Us”, and comes out October 7th (that's today guys), right?


S: That’s right!

Okay, so right now only a few of them are released, but what is your favorite track off the album?

A: So there’s a song called  “All for You”...
S:
It’s the first song we ever wrote together, so it has special meaning for us.
A:
It’s also kind of a jazz tune, or as jazzy as you can get without knowing anything about music. It came together really quick, and it’s got a cool story behind it. It’s about all the illegal things you do for your significant other. The chorus goes “If you wake up and see me on the news/I did it all for you”. It was such a fun song to write and mindset to really get into. It’s deep, and musically, it sounds awesome to us, so we hope everyone else likes it too.

I am so ready for it. OKAY: LAST QUESTION. You guys just followed me on twitter (I screamed) and I noticed that in your twitter bio, you say that you like food. But what is your FAVORITE food?

S: I was surprised that we weren’t following you already! Dropped the ball there. Okay, so my mom makes this Vietnamese dish called “caramel fish”, and its freaking amazing. When I was younger, I did NOT like fish, except for that. I have no words to describe it.

A: My favorite food...oh man
S: That’s the hardest thing you could have asked.
A: It is. My mom makes vegetarian sausage gravy and biscuits. So if I was on death row, and it was my last meal, that’s what I would eat. I don’t now if Sierra likes it or not, but it’s so amazing.

Send me the recipe, okay? I can’t cook, but I’m sure I can find someone who can.



I would recommend reading this interview, 
buying the album, listening to the album while rereading the interview
then spending the next several hours of your life watching their X-Factor performances. 

Or I can do that by myself, it's chill, whatever.

featuring eggplants



 

 #teenvogue shirt: liz clairborne // jeans c.o chiara fashion // sneakers: c.o. bc footwear 

and now a brief break from our regularly scheduled punk-rockness for an old navy ad

Sometimes I surprise even myself with my ability to dress (on the surface) 
like an average friendly + pleasant member of society. There's little giveaways everywhere though.

My bracelet still says "you can't sit with us", 
my jeans are moto, 
and my sneakers are leopard print pony hair.

 You can put the Justina in fall commercial wear, 
but it's still Justina. 

Or something, 
you really shouldn't expect much of my analogy remixes at this point. 

This is also the last outfit you will see from 16 year old Justina,
 because I will be 17 year old Justina in two days,
 and everything is going to change.

I'm just kidding, I don't even know what "everything" is.

I do know that it rained for the first time in forever today for like 2.5 seconds, 
and that basically means it's now winter in California. We all need  to break out our three quarter sleeves, because it's about to be a chilly 79 degrees for the next three months.
You think I'm kidding but I'm not

stay punk barbie


top: barbie for forever 21 // pants: motel rocks // backpack: c.o. sunny dushanka


So it wasn't until AFTER we wrapped up shooting this outfit that we noticed that every single full length photo was ludicrously crooked, therefore 

 DETAIL POST.

just imagine my docs at the end of my legs and you have the picture anyway

It will never not be time for these pants. 
They are wonderful and also great and if they ever wreck I shall probably cry for ages.
crying is punk rock too ok

Combined with my docs they also have a curious effect of making people step out of my way. 
Probably mainly because they're worried about getting kicked in the shins,
 I can't always control my shoes.

 
They're also a fun base for basic pieces, like my new Barbie/Perfect t-shirt from the new Barbie x Forever 21 collection. I'm not big on crop tops, 
but this one works perfectly with all my high waisted pants.

By the way, people keep feeling the need to tell me boys don't like highwaisted pants??? Why do people think this??? Why should my pants care if boys don't like them??? Unclear.

What I am very clear on is how insanely genius the Milan collections were this season. 
I don't usually do collection posts but I might have to make an exception for Moschino.

It's a good time to be a Barbie girl in fashion.

september tunes


probably no one noticed that I didn't do one of these last month right

oh

This months playlist has no flow whatsoever, 
and I quite like it.
 Each of the songs comes with such a different energy and ~eMoTioN~

Here's some various thoughts I had while choosing songs:

*"Don't" is what happens when you have Ed Sheeran sing a song 
written by Taylor Swift (probably) and audio directed by Pharell (probably)

*Mac Miller + Hoodie Allen = cool older brother rap. 

*Sam Smith needs to go on tour with Adele. Please. Take my money.

*I WANT A HOUSE IN BUDAPEST GEORGE EZRA

*How good is B.o.B.? So good. 
(why does no one ever talk about B.o.B??)

*And in their off time, ONEREPUBLIC are definitely pyros. Good song though. 

* I have no idea who they are but I like this song. Good call Pandora. 
(Vance Joy)


Basically it all comes down to avoiding songs with Ariana Grande
which is basically impossible.

interview // justina x nolan


CR: Annette Brown/FOX


(Disclaim: this show does deal with some serious stuff, 
and if it's not your jam, 
feel free to read this post I wrote about tracksuits when I was 13.)

At the TCA's, I saw a bald head, and freaked out. 
It was Charlie Rowe, 
and with him was Nolan Sotillo. 

They, along with Ciara Bravo, 
(who I had taken some pretty solid selfies with earlier in the evening), 
were there to promote their new FOX show Red Band Society.
After I bully-er, convinced Charlie to refollow me on twitter, 
 we managed to get in a good chat about the show. 

Then I got to continue that with Nolan, who plays Jordi, one of the main characters. 

So tell me about Jordi Palacios. 
Well actually, first tell me if I'm pronouncing that properly.

It's Jor-di Pa-LA-ci-os, or if you're saying it in Spanish it's a little different. 

Okay, I will change that, since I think I've been spelling it wrong this whole time.
Hahahah, well, Jordi is American born, but after his mom dies, and having never really known his dad, he goes to live with his Abuela in Mexico. He's then diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, which is a cancerous bone tumor. His personality is really determined and motivated, which causes him to, you know, make the best of his situation. He does some research and finds the best doctor he can, to get treatment on his leg and ultimately live a normal life. 

That's obviously a lot of backround on a character. Was there anything specific you had to do to get into that mindset? Did you have to learn Spanish?

Well I'm actually of Cuban- and Spanish- decent, so I actually already did speak Spanish, but I think for the most part, it was a matter of me really wanting to get the story straight, in my head. So I asked a lot of questions, especially from the writers, who could tell me a lot about Jordi's past, and I could then visualize that. I wanted to fill out every detail, and have a clear vision of who he is in my mind. 

This show obviously deals with some Really Heavy Subject Matter. Was a specific part of that particularly grueling for you?

Well, I think the most obvious answer would be that I can't relate, myself, to having cancer. But I did have the opportunity to meet some kids who were going through some really difficult situations in different hospitals on the Red Band Tour. I think that provided me with the grounds of that seriousness that it's tempting to play when there's cancer involved, because of the heaviness of it, but kids just want to be kids. Even if you're in a tough situation, you're going to deal with it, and make the best of your situation.

I remember you guys telling me at the TCA's that Red Band Society isn't about the hospital, 
it's about the kids.

Yea, exactly. It's just like any other show, it's about the people in it, whether it takes place in a police station, or in a school. This happens to take place in a hospital.

Well you may have just covered it, but if there was one thing you'd want people to know about this show that may not be immediately obvious to them, what would it be?

Red Band Society is not..yeah, Red Band Society is not a show about kids in their hospital beds. It's about teenagers growing up, and going through the normal strife of being a misunderstood teenager. Our backdrop just happens to be this hospital.

The hospital isn't the point.

 I mean obviously there's a reason we're there, because we're sick, and that's part of who we are, so that comes up. But it's doesn't matter where you are, as a teenager you're always going to want to live life and experience everything you can. I think that's what everyone's doing. At least in my experience.

I think you're right. Now that the hard-hitting journalism questions are out of the way, lets talk some lighter stuff. What's your favorite part of the pilot episode?

 I think my favorite part is when Leo (Charlie Rowe) talks to Charlie (Griffin Gluck)
and gives him his red band.

So that's the Symbolic Moment.
It's a really touching scene, and he says this simple line to him, but it's emotional, and Charlie being the incredibly talented actor that he is makes it all the better. That's definitely my favorite.

If you could play any other character on the show, who would it be?
 If I could play any other....hmm. A doctor? That'd be cool.
Or is it Dash? Maybe Dash, because Dash is badass.  

That is true. That is very true.

That's a hard one. Actually I think I'm going to go with Dr. McAndrews,  just because he's - just from an actor's perspective - he's torn between two sides, and Dave does it so amazingly, I just want to see if I can do that. 

In nearly the same thought, the show is often described as  "The Breakfast Club, set in a hospital". If you could be any Breakfast Club character, who would you choose?

Man, that's a tough one. Is it like...who I would be, or who I think it'd be fun to play?

Pick either. There's a wide open question right there.

Hmmmm *sounds of deep thinking* I think it's - is it Brian? I could be completely off. In a class, I actually did a scene, from The Breakfast Club, and I can't remember what it is, but it was funny.

Hahahaha, okay, hang on, I have a list here, and Brian is The Brain.

Exactly! Brian.

You were super close.

Haha, yeah, that's who I'd want to play.

Speaking of your cast (well I was thinking about them), the premise of the show is you guys sort of coming together and becoming a family, and as a cast, you seem to have a lot of fun together. What do you guys do in your "time off"?

I think for me, well, for the guys, we just play video games. But then you know, when the girls are involved, we try to, you know, we play board games and go to concerts and stuff, but that's about the extent of what we do for fun. Otherwise we're just eating. 

Dude, food. I mean, last night when I was writing these questions for you, 
the entire first draft involved food.

Haha, really?

Indeed. Oh, and now here's a good one: what's your favorite moment from filming/hanging out on set, from..whenever. Any point, as long as it doesn't spoil anything.

Alright, well the most recent one was actually yesterday, and it was all thanks to little Griffin.  I guess Dave and Rebecca were on set shooting, along with Octavia. Charlie, Zoe,  Dave's wife, and I were all playing a board game in Dave's dressing room. All of a sudden, the trash can, the little small one in the hallway outside the door, just falls over. We're like "What? What was that?" and I think it was Charlie who walked over, and right when he gets to the doorframe, Griffin SCREAMS and jumps out at him. For some reason it was just ridiculously funny.

It's always the unexpected that's gonna get you. In your other life, besides RBS, you're pretty involved in music. If you were going to make a three song playlist to sum up the show, emotions, characters, anything, what would you put on it?

Ummmmmm. Trying to think, trying to think...I feel like I don't even know three songs now. Okay, here goes:

1. Free Falling - John Mayer 
2. Stay With Me - Sam Smith 
3....what's a cool up beat song?

I don't know, I can't think of a single song.

I know, all I can think of right now is like, food.

That might be slightly my fault.

A little. Joking. Okay, I think our like, theme song, should be "Come on Eileen". It doesn't really fit the show, but that's what we listen to when we're getting pumped up, so I'm gonna go with it.
 Charlie and I jam out to that song.

Got it. Playlist achieved. Okay, Lightning round questions, here we go. 
Instagram or twitter?


Good man. What's your favorite food?

Pizza! Right now.

Do you have a different favorite food when you're filming? 

Whatever my favorite food is at the moment. 

Favorite song to get ready to in the morning?
..........I don't listen to music when I get dressed.

Wait, really?

Yeah, that's like...distracting. It would take me forever to get dressed!

You know, that would explain a lot about how long it takes me to get ready in the morning.
Okay, last one: You said in an interview once that you would shave your hair off like Charlie did. Do you still stand by that?

Yeah! I was supposed to actually, but they changed it.  

Was that disappointing?

It's wasn't disappointing, I mean, I don't mind my hair, but you know, you gotta worry about it!
 If you shave it, you don't have to.

Trust me, I feel that more that you could possibly know. But I feel like a lot of your fans would be really sad if you shaved off your hair.

Come on, I promise it'd still be me guys!

Hahah I suppose that is true. Parting words: is there anything else you'd like everyone to know about you, your show, your cast, food. It's wide open for you.

 I guess..in the first two episodes, I get to play two songs that I wrote, so I'm going to try to release those soon, not by the first week, but maybe by like the third or fourth week of the show. As far as Red Band Society goes, I'm just really excited for everyone to see it. I think we're doing #RedBandSociety, and we're going to livetweet the premiere..you should live tweet with us.

Already planning on it.


Red Band Society premieres this Wednesday, September 17th at 9pm PT/ET on FOX. You can follow the show on twitter at @RedBandSociety, and Nolan at @Nolan_Sotillo.
