You Gotta Love Your Roots

When you think my hair looks like shit just realize that it’s
1. on purpose
2. being plain terrified to dye it any other color in case I freak out and NEED platinum hair again

They call is ombre, I call it trash! Now I need a whole new wardrobe to go with my extra trashy hair! I’m thinking 80’s sequins and 90’s florals.

Joshua Petker

At 18, I almost paid my life’s savings to be immortalized in a Joshua Petker painting. I regret canceling my order TO THIS DAY, because the price tag is now beyond my means. Needless to say, I will never pass up an opportunity like that again!

MAD ABOUT chartreuse, orange and burgundy

Fashion Week. The week every blogger has their say on who is amazing and who sucks. I’ve thought long and hard about whether I should bombard people with my opinion, and decided to devote one post to such things and keep it relatively short. Here you go!

Obviously, I’m not the only one loving these colors.

Mixed with gray, khaki, pale pink, fuchsia, cobalt or black, I’ve been wearing these colors like crazy for the past few weeks and they’re ALL. OVER. THE. RUNWAY for fall.
I just got this lovely lipstick in Tulipe Noir that I’ve been wearing and scaring people with. It’s shockingly dark for the Walmart goers in rural Nashville. “Going to a party?” said the Walmart cashier at 2pm today. “Nope, just cleaning my garage” I reply. The look of confusion was priceless.

Oh, and ps and I hate this

The exposed zipper up the front of a plaid a-line? Can you please make something less 2005, Marc Jacobs? You always seem to be 5 years ago. Except with these, I guess. Those were cool.

christina’s world

This painting has always struck a haunting chord with me. As far back as 1974, my mother can remember my great aunt Joyce’s print hanging in her guest bedroom. I remember taking that print down while we moved her into an assisted living home some 30 years later. That print now resides in my studio/guest bedroom, hovering over a quilt that has been in my family since the late 1800’s (made by my great-great grandmother).

I saw the actual painting back in 2001 at the Andrew Wyeth exhibit at the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art. My favorite real-life sighting to date, for sure.

This painting reminds me of Christina’s World. Sadly, I have no idea who it’s by.

The painting was inspired by Wyeth’s neighbor, Christina, who was paralyzed from the waist down. He looked out his kitchen window to see Christina dragging herself across a field. How’s that for inspiration?
