A Native American inspired outfit I pieced together from Amvets, which is basically our local Salvation Army/thrift shop. I don't know if I'm transitioning early into fall but I'm very inspired by all things motorcycle and bohemian. My personal style is always day to day, and can range from girly and vintage to body conscious and trendy. I'm also very much inspired by what I read and view, whether that be Nabokov, WWD, Yvan Rodic, or even Perez Hilton.
Kateri Tekakwitha (also known as Catherine) was an indian princess of sorts who was later beatified by the Catholic Church (her sainthood is still pending). She lived in New York state near the Mohawk river, which happens to run very close to where I grew up. She's also a central character in Beautiful Losers, a book written by Leonard Cohen.
She is known variously as "The Lily of the Mohawks," the "Mohawk Maiden," the "Pure and Tender Lily," the "Flower among True Men," and "The New Star of the New World." Her tribal neighbors called her "the fairest flower that ever bloomed among the redmen." Upon her death, scars that had covered her face since youth miraculously disappeared, revealing an unusually radiant face. And that is Catherine.
"And I'll dance with you in Vienna,I'll be wearing a river's disguise.
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder my mouth on the dew of your thighs And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moss. And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty, my cheap violin and my cross. "- Leonard Cohen
