I've sold my house and am busy packing up all my worldly possessions, which is a chore to say the least, but on the bright side I have unearthed some gems that I'd forgotten existed. This carved eagle necklace was thrifted at least 7 years ago and has been buried deep in a cupboard ever since... such a shame when it could have been basking in the Phoenix sun like it is today. Better late than never I suppose. Also uncovered; some less exciting things like centuries old ice trays, dried up bottles of lotion and tins of unrecognizable food products (how this is possible I don't know as I'm weirdly obsessed with cleaning out the pantry)!
It's 80 degrees and impossible to continue hiding under a layer of nylon. The tights are put away and the legs are out, pasty as a newborn, but I'm happy to have only one layer of undergarment positioned to slide up my derriere at any given moment. Hurrah for Spring.
I wasn't really going for an 80's vibe but I seem to channeled Crystal unknowingly. I have an Arizona Costume Institute event at the Phoenix Art Museum tonight that I helped organize; A lecture on new media in fashion advertising with Andrew Boatman.
This bat wing extravaganza is in fact from some obscenely cheap and tacky shop called Hottiez, oh yes, with a 'Z'. It just goes to show, if you look hard enough you can find great fashion anywhere.
I wore this to a little evening soiree at The Desert Botanical Garden, the perfect place to watch the sun set.
