Amy was nice enough to take this photo of me, and equally nice enough to write nice things about me, so I though that sharing this photo with you all would be, well,...nice. Ahem. Thanks Amy!
This outfit has lately been a kind of uniform of sorts - just "edgy" enough that passerby wouldn't mistake me for a trixie, yet warm enough to get through Chicago's annual Sort-Of Spring. By Sort-Of Spring, I mean that it's 35 degrees and rainy until well into the middle of May. Uniqlo coat via ebay, thrifted Karl Lagerfeld x H&M jacket, American Apparel blue blouse, thrifted black blouse, thrifted leggings, Comme des Garcons shoes also from ebay, thrifted bag, Zana Bayne harness, MAC lipstick in Cyber. This lipstick, being called Cyber and all, makes me think of AOL and how the internet was this new cool exciting thing back in, uh, 1998. Suddenly, people didn't have to have long-distance sex over the phone, because a 56K modem meant that for the first time, you could see boobs in *real time*...nevermind the fact that in 1998, *real time* meant that your photo still took 30 minutes to load. But, uh, how would I know such things?! In 1998, I was using AOL just to chat with my cool older friend in middle school who was seductively Wiccan and had a pentacle as her IM avatar (rebelling against my Catholic upbringing, let me tell you.) By the time I was old enough to send boob photos over the internet (OH SHUT UP, LIKE YOU'VE NEVER DONE IT. TO THE LEFT!), broadband was already commonplace and AOL was more like LOL and only old people still thought that you needed AOL to access the magicalunicorninternetland.
Also, for those of you that know anything about hair, SOS PLEASE SEND HELP. My naturally thin hair has gotten so long that it literally has the consistency of Christmas tinsel on my head. It. Does. Nothing. At this point I'm tempted to chop it all off again but I know that the minute I see those hard-earned locks hit the ground, I'll turn into Angelina Jolie from The Changeling. "MY BAAAABBBYYYYY!!!"
