Here is me making an extremely awkward face, in last night's outfit that I wore to Late Bar. Inspired heavily by Dolce & Gabbana's fall 2012 collection. Honestly, I've never been much of a D&G girl, but this collection is DIVINE. Two separate people both mistook me for a sort of religious person, offering me blessings (which took the place of catcalls, I suppose). Barking up the wrong tree on that one, folks.
I got this necklace on ebay recently and it has become a critical part of my Inner Self.

My HOMC dress is literally a giant piece of sheer black lace which is a VERY good thing. On Saturday I wore it to Nocturna, a really adorable all-ages goth night at the Metro. Nocturna has been running for something like 15 years, giving at least 2 generations of weird kids a safe place to dance to the Sisters of Mercy. A really special moment occurred when Scary Lady Sarah played "Destroy Everything You Touch" by Ladytron because I remember loving that song when I was 20 and wishing that I could dance to it at a bar. At 27 that mini-dream came true as I danced with my friends. Life Aspiration Unlocked!
Here's a better photo of my necklace situation. I used to believe that wearing crosses was really reductive to the sanctity of Catholicism, but lately I'm a lot more comfortable with doing so as a means to integrate my ex-faith into my identity.
