Show Your Bones

remind me to stand up straight next time twinkle tights

…And within days of the end of the January, I am finally posting my New Year’s Eve outfit! Not exactly anything to be proud of – the timing, that is, not the outfit – but for me it’s pretty good. Which is maybe sad…

Aldous Huxley once said, “Several excuses are always less convincing than one.” If only I had a singular excuse for myself. The truth is I’ve had a lot going on. Good things. Exciting things. But just a whole lot of things. My updated bio should read:

Negligent blogger, Zoora Brand Engagement Consultant, jewelry designer, photo assistant, on-call salon receptionist, freelance writer/stylist/model – and that’s just after 6:00 pm!

Which leaves many questions to be answered. Like who would hire a 5’1″ model? And wtf is a Zoora? And I look forward to answering them all… But in another post. Because right now I am exhausted, possibly delirious and, it appears, incapable of thinking/typing beyond fragmented sentences. It’s probably for the best that I leave you with the outfit details and just step away from the computer.

[Black Milk 3D ribs dress and 3D glasses, Club Monaco sequins blazer from Rescue - who threw the NYE party we went to, which, I should mention, was pretty awesome - DIY shredded tights and spike crown, bracelets and body chain from my covetous creatures jewelry-line-in-progress (as mentioned in above ramblings)]

      Thank you! I’m glad to be posting too! And I’m much more comfortable with the term (un)model, since I am short, of average build and older than I care to admit – but I am always happy to get made up, styled and photoshopped by the pros!

    That dress….those shoooooes…I am in love! This reminds me that I have a pair of House of Holland tights with bones on them that I’ve yet to wear. It might be time…

    And, as always, I love your hair.
