moved on indefinitely

I've grown out of this little place.

I may or may not ever be back, we'll see. But for now I'm leaving this as it is.

Thanks to all who read.

peace & love,


p.s. I am leaving you these hippies and this cow-horse to ponder in my absence.

Dear Mr. Howard Zinn and Mr. J.D. Salinger

Each of you contributed to my intellectual growth in ways only you could have.

Thank you for adding your beauty to the world, thank you for sharing yourselves with us while you were here.

Dear Mr. McQueen

I hope with all my heart you are in a happier, more peaceful place now. 

Thank you for giving us so much beauty while you were here.

so there's snow when I want summer

And everyone is pissing me off. Nothing seems to be working out for this coming semester, and I am more than slightly annoyed. Fucking spanish school system, fucking controlling Au Pair mother, fucking snow, fucking schedules, fucking everything. Even the weather is pissing me off. 

I just want to wear tiny shorts and cut off shirts and lots of beads and nothing else.

Doing this as soon as I can get my hands on some pink hair dye. Any recommendations?

after the apocalypse

 I was thinking today about what I would wear after the apocalypse (actually that's less likely than a third world war, or chronic global environmental change, or the depletion of natural resources, or, or, or) and was simultaneously preemptively feeling thankful that I know how to garden, and sew, and knit, and spin yarn, and do a multitude of other completely useful things.

After the world has come to an end I envision myself in draped black materials paired with heavy leathers- sort of bike-gang tough mixed with dark enchantress. I'm thinking swaths of soft but durable blacks and greys, with a good amount of leather and metal thrown in in forms of pants, jackets, and embellishments. I also think that in a post-apocalyptic world the sort of clothing you'd need would have to have lots of secret pockets, so the draping would be very useful for little hidden compartments.

I did some sketches, because I was bored and sketching sounded like fun:

And then I got dressed in this:

I really wish I had more skill with a camera, because I promise this looks way better in person. The scarf/hood thing is all drapey and looks sweet, but in the photos it's schei├če and you can't see any detail. Oh well. 
I've also been thinking about how to incorporate more dramatic shapes into what I wear, and I like how this really boring sweater worn upside down gets all boxy and draped at the same time.

p.s. thankxxx everyone for the comments on the last post, I sometimes just need to vent, and if I'm gonna do it anyway, why not do it here?
