This past weekend I had an art opening at Paxton Gate Curiosities for Kids.  It’s a shop I’ve been wanting to show art at for a really long time now and I want to thank everyone who made it out for the opening – you are special amazing snowflakes.  It was definitely a little life achievement.

BUT ENOUGH WITH THE MUSHY STUFF.  Let’s get down to brass tacks: what I wore to the opening.

Costume For The Day:

– Vintage Betsey Johnson snap-front 90s dress that’s half stretch jersey and half transparent chiffon, and 100% AMAZE-BALLZ.

– Simple black slip worn underneath.  It peeked out a bit at the top.  Ya know, for funsies.

– Light blue Swedish Hasbeens lace up boots – these shits are hell-of comfortable.  I highly recommend getting on that.

– Gold cicada earrings by Erica Weiner

– Gold acorn pendant choker necklace

– Long gold tannis root globe (replica from Rosemary’s Baby)


Me & Justin DeVine’s art show Chimera will be on display at Paxton Gate Curiosities for Kids until April 7th.


Love you, mean it
