we are young.








on barbara: express dress, f21 heels.
on me: alexander mcqueen for target dress, dolce vita wedges, alexander wang bag.

Had a little photoshoot adventure with my bestie since 4th grade Barbara before we left for college. We pulled random items of clothing out of our closets, tossed them in the backseat of her car, and drove off into the desert listening to French rap, feeling a bit like two teenage vagabonds. However, the real adventure (if you could call it that) began when we jumped into the street to take these photos and Barbara tossed her car key to the side of the road (or so we thought). About ten minutes later we heard a crunching noise and turned around to see a car speeding away and the car key in pieces on the ground. Thankfully the key itself hadn't gotten run over so we could unlock the car and get in, but the car refused to start because the electronic part of the key was ruined. It also didn't help that it was about 110 degrees outside and we were pretty much in the middle of nowhere...
In the end I got a friend of mine with a car to come out and get us, which I now owe him forever for, since he had to drive for 30 minutes to get us, drive for 20 minutes back to Barbara's house so she could get her spare car key, and then drive another 20 minutes back to where her car was. All in all, it was a fun, idiotic, and sweaty adventure that made a hilarious memory, even thought it wasn't quite that hilarious when we discovered we were stranded.
