I found her sad and alone, languishing away since the late 90s in the back of someone's closet.

She asked me to take her away from her sad, closeted life, make her feel loved like she hadn't been loved in 15 years.

I popped her collar. And she felt good and happy.


She snuggled up on me. We shared warmth. We went dancing in the leaves.

We watched her hang just so. She shined on.

  1. Nothing better than saving something so awesome

  2. So glad to have you back! I love that shirt! I've been looking for something similar, but with red instead of the yellow...

    I really enjoy how you're able to pull together pieces that would by assumption not work as an ensemble. Great job! Also loving the short hair.

  4. Thank you! I do see plenty with red. What kind of fit are you looking for?

  5. Thanks so much. I know what you mean and appreciate the compliment! Short hair has changed my life for the better? Have you ever had it? It would maybe be at odds with your current aesthetic but you totally have the structure to pull it off.

    Funny you should ask, I actually shaved my head around a month ago! It was a most liberating experience, but your estimation of it being at odds with my style is on point. I've been trying to find a way to keep my wardrobe consistent while having a shaved head, and it's been difficult.

  7. WHAT!? I am heading straight over to see! I bet it's amazing and you just have to find the "sweet spot" in your wardrobe. There are definitely adjustments I had to make. Completely different hats look good on me now than before, different earrings.
