in an another universe



Saturday night I had a photo job at Lincoln Hall for glitterguts. Lincoln Hall is one of my favorite places in Chicago to see a show and get schwasted,. The brand-new venue is beautifully lit and boasts an incredible sound system that cleanly delineates every instrument and part. Chicago will be hosting a shoegaze festival this spring and a few of the shows will be at Lincoln Hall...more about that later!

Anyway! Top and skirt are both from American Apparel. When I saw this skirt, I threw up my hands and exclaimed "fucking finally!", as I'd searching for a perfect pleated skirt for months. Expect to see lots of the skirt in the future.  I've taken to tying my button-down shirt into a knot at the midriff for an easy 90s reference and as a way to break up the solid black. Zana Bayne epaulet harness looks great with my Alexander Wang criss-cross bra, an Outnet.com score at 75% off. Cannibalized cross necklace from Forever21 and leather croc bag from a thrift store.

Shoes are by Marni and were bought for dirt cheap on eBay.
