white dress, gold buttons, and Bond.

and finally: my favourite collage.  for it cleverly (creepily?) insinuates Sean Connery as Dr. No era James Bond is mildly intrigued by me and my fabulous ensemble.  he's checking his watch because he wants to get out of there with me.  yup...
anyway, that scene was HUGELY influential on my aesthetic and also attraction to tiki kitsch.
there you go, just slaughtered a little bit of the mystique for ya.  it's okay, no one "reads" this blog, anyway!

another buffalo exchange find.  twirl-factor based purchase.  i wore this vintage Friederike orange one on New Year's Eve (there MAY be photo documentation of the outfit at some point... but for now see my attempt at Ronettes make-up below).  ah, the pride of thrifting.  unfortunately extremely unoriginal thanks to this shitty economy.  i can't wait for people to get rich again so i can have my Goodwill back, all to myself. 

 I just read Ronnie Spector's autobiography, Be My Baby, so I'm heavily influenced by her right now.  On my to do list for this week is to acquire a comb and hairspray so that I can finally get some sort of beehive going.  After that I'm going Klute-era Jane Fonda with my hair!
I also finally hired someone to help me understand how to create an image-map, so I should have my website up in a few weeks.
