audience participation

I’ve noticed my hits counter lagging a bit lately, and I haven’t gotten any likes in a while. Because I’m a fame whore, I’m mildly concerned. So just this once, I will waylay my own stylistic vision and ask y’all what you’d like to see me in. Comment away! I’ll do my best to come…

urban elphaba

I nurse a great fondness for the Wizard of Oz canon, Gregory Maguire’s Wicked series in particular, and Elphaba Thropp is one of my all-time favorite literary characters.

snake-oil salesgirl

I spent yesterday down at Battery Street Jeans, taking advantage of September’s 20%-off-with-student-ID promotion.

Y’all know I love creepy-crawlies. ‘Til now, I’d relied mostly on skulls and spiders (though…

i’ve been told i resemble a circus

Summer has officially broken. I spent the weekend in Maine and came back to a distinct chill in the air, palpable even though the humidity. Autumnal style is rearing its head! Usually I prefer a print this dramatic in a more tailored silhouette, but this particular print is smooth enough and symmetrical enough to stand…
