“Costume For The Day”
The weather (as I am wont to talk about) has been ping-ponging me back and forth. I’ve also been making the tragic mistake of dressing based on the weather the day beforehand. So today – I wore a completely fall inspired number – complete with little bronze-dipped leaf earrings. And what did the weather give me? – Ohh, 70-effing-5 degrees. What the what fall? Is it too much to ask to see a leaf on the ground and think hey, I should be wearing a sweater and swilling hot apple cider?? Anyway. Is it time for a donut yet???
Costume For a (Not-Quite-Nearly) Fall Day:
– Plaid flannel 3/4 sleeve box top (thrifted)
– Black, high-waist, skinny jeans by Madewell
– Flat-soled suede boots with secret pockets & side zipper (Mercy Vintage)
– Bronze-dipped leaf earrings
Oh hey, I also wanted to tell you about my art show that is opening tomorrow! It’s called “Chimera.” Chimera is a 2-person art show at the Subterranean Arthouse by myself (Megan Lynn Kott) and Justin DeVine. The show features collaboratively painted animal hybrids such as a pelican-seahorse or an oxalatl-hummingbird, as well as many others. Each painting was worked on by both artists, one creating the head, while the other the body, and vice-versa. The pieces combine both the artist’ style and brush stroke to create another chimera of sorts. These works signify their interest in the natural world and play with a casual surrealism, not unlike the traditional artist’s exercise: Exquisite Corpse. Opening reception Friday, November 7th at 7pm to meet the artists, enjoy light snacks, and draw your own exquisite corpse!
Love you, mean it
