This Fall I will be showing my art work for the first time in public. I will be showing in the annual show my boyf and his friend from art school put on in Portland. I am very scared for several reasons. One, I will be one of the only artists showing that didn’t go to college. Two, I have never shown my work in public before. And three, I have a whole bunch of half finished pieces and not even close to enough finished pieces. So I have been searching for photos to inspire me and get me moving (quickly.) I wanted to share some of the images I have found that have really moved me. Wish me luck and I will post more details about the show as it gets closer.
I have always had a hard time with too many layers. I love to wear millions of layers but I always end up feeling like the “stay puff man.” Not like these ladies, they look amazing! It might be because of their thin frames, but man they look so cute. I need to learn how they do. I am pretty curvy so it will be tricky but I will have to start practicing more :)
Being a lady who has been wearing a septum ring for the last 5 years, I love seeing pics of other girls that have them too. Especially this little lady. Not only does she have a septum ring but she is rocking it! I love it!!!!!!!!
As you all know I love a feather in the head, or 13. So whenever I come across photos that people have posted with feathers or head dresses in them I just can’t help but reblog them. I should really get on my head dress making project….
Is it really only Wednesday? Well at least I got to wear one of the dresses I bought form the Jean Paul Gaultier for Target line. I am not really sure if this really is a dress. The sash piece that runs down the middle might really go on the side, but I stepped through it so that it went right between my legs. This make the dress look more like a crazy sagging jumper which I like better. So I will be wearing it like this now and forever :)
As summer approaches, I can’t help but start thinking about what I will be wearing when the temperature starts to rise. Usually I opt for Levis cut off or short mini dresses. But this year I am rethinking my normal staples. I have been seeing a lot of floor length cotton or linen dresses and skirts. Floating and light I think they may be the perfect summer outfit. Luckily I have some of these pieces stuck in the back of my rolling racks, if the weather would just hurry up and get warm I could pull them out ;) Here are a few of the photos that got my mind on this track in the first place.
On my search for the perfect early morning sweater I have come across these gems and would like to share. All of them are oversized and look to be quite cozy. I just want all of them!!!!!! When you wake up as early as I do all you really need in life is a sweater you can snuggle into on your way to work :)

When I was young my Mom bought this floral dress. She loved this dress. She wore it for years, any time is was warm enough and she needed to get dressed up. A couple months ago she very generously handed it over to me :) I had to alter it just a bit, hemmed shorter to be exact. But it fits perfect!!!!! The floral print could not be more cheerful so I had to add a large leather belt to the outfit to feel a bit more like me. I just love that every time I wear it I think of being a kid and of my sweet mother :)
Even though it is slowly warming up here in the Northwest, you still need a sweater in the mornings. I have the perfect sweater for these chilly mornings and just wanted to show it off a bit. I got it at a second hand store for only $25!!!!! It is really thick and a cozy as a sweater could be :)
