rebel, cause

"I've discovered a whole new world here, a whole new way of thinking...You've got to stay with it or get lost. I like it." -James Dean on New York City

Just wanted to say hi with a casual Sunday outfit! These pictures were taken by my bff @lauryn.oliver, who semi twinned with me today (as seen to the left). On an unrelated note, I've been very fascinated with the life/work/mythology of James Dean lately. I recently watched "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955) for the first time after seeing the film mentioned in my US History textbook. It was so interesting to watch it keeping in mind both the cultural context of the time period and the life of Dean. It made him such a teenage icon and symbol of rebellion and defiance and complexity and disillusionment and, at times, androgyny. His influence is still so evident in the celebrities and movies of today, and I'm really looking forward to continuing to delve into his work and history. 

More soon! ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŸ
