Steal the Show

We all know that sometimes, it's about the shoes. Other articles of clothing can serve as nothing more than a blank canvas - an indistinct backdrop.

Such was definitely so in this instance.

Alright, perhaps I won't go as far to say that this dress is indistinct. It's actually quite perfect. The quintessential black dress, even.

The length hits about mid-thigh. Just where I like it.

It's shape is pretty amazing. A dress that manages to be form-fitting and have a draping, effortless look to it at the same time is always ideal.

But as satisfying as this Silence + Noise black dress is, this time, it wasn't the star of the show.

These were.

My favorite pair of heels. Probably one of the coolest platforms in existence.

Have I ever mentioned my obsession over bows? Acknowledgment is the first step taken on the road to recovery.

So glad the rain is mostly behind us! I know you're going to get pretty well acquainted with these.


So Crafty

I stumbled across a bunch of vintage photographs in a desk drawer at my mom's place. How she could keep these treasures hidden from view leaves me puzzled. After a healthy round of begging, I was able to convince her that they would be put to better use in my possession.

Small clothespins and a bit of twine is all that was needed to create a crafty homage to the 60's, 70's and 80's. The latter two definitely being two of the best decades that have come to pass.

I did an installation on two walls. One was done in a small corner near my nightstand, in between a window and a wall.

Photos of my mom and baby Me are mostly here.

She is very beautiful, no?

The other installation was placed above my dresser.

A photograph of my dad's college graduation. Some time in the 70's, I believe.

The one of me with a pink background is my favorite here. Slightly narcissistic, I know.
