the watson twins played at one of my favorite clubs in tucson last night, and while i thought i would be attending the show, apparently reality and my lower back were pulling for a quiet friday night in.
guess who won?
note to anyone who might be planning to move all their belongings across town and then see the watson twins in the same 24-hour period: don’t bet on it.
so i did the next best thing. i internet stalked them. (duh.) and while most of us have already formed our opinions on how great (or not, i suppose – we’re all allowed to form our own opinions…) the watson twins are, i’d like to share a juicy little tidbit i unearthed that you may not have formed an opinion on yet, because – like me – you were unaware of her existence. this tidbit is jenny reyes, stylist, vintage connoisseur (or so i’ve read…) and creator of the brand new label, geronimo.
according to the interweb, the lovely ms. reyes has done quite a bit of stylist work for cute indie band girls, including create the costumes the watson twins wore while on tour with jenny lewis. even better, this spring she’s scheduled to make her talent accessible to those of us who may not necessarily need touring costumes, but know an adorable bathing costume when we see one. she’s designed a line of vintage-inspired bathing suits and shorts, which will be coming out just in time for the warm weather.
i have yet to uncover the price tags that will attach themselves to these fancy little numbers, but i’m guessing from their perfect appearance and the rumored high-quality of their construction, it will be way out of my league.
that’s fine. i’ll just create a visual pep-talk on my computer with all the pictures i’ve snagged from her website, as i ready myself to march bravely into my tenth summer of searching for that perfect vintage swimsuit…
