A Brief Debriefing

One of my contributions to the latest Sweat (link in the sidebar). Click to enlarge and buy a copy!

Last night I partook in high school tradition and went to prom. The first thing I noticed was the gyrating sea of teenagers, overdressed and made up of mostly unfamiliar faces and the DJ who was positioned in front of, what looked like, the gate to hell. But the evening turned out to be a visceral heaven on Earth. I want to relive it. Right now. 

I will be free of educational obligations in two weeks which means more regular posting and the completion of some of my little projects. Somehow I'm going to make outfit postings a more frequent thing too.

Summer; it's practically here. I've seen so many summertime inspiration posts that if I see one more, my frothy/pastel/lacey/sheer/sunray/floweryfield eye glaze will become permanent. Having said that, I still crave more, even though I'm afraid that by mid-July I'll be going through some chunky professor cardigan phase but I'll have to settle for sun dresses and fabric that is barely there.

And, I want to thank every single one of you who take the time to read my stuff. I didn't start this blog with the intention of networking the way I have and I think that's why I enjoy it so much. I've been really lucky to meet and work with some genuinely talented girls who share my passions and obsessions.

Now go listen to Egyptian Shumba by the Tammys and dance your way through the week.


  1. Wow i just looked at your zine and it's amazing! Loads of brilliant illustrators :) Keep up the good work!

  2. ou! well, I hope you had a decent time at prommmm! mine was a few weeks ago, it was rather miserable but it made me feel a little nostaligic

    oh and a little embarrassing tidbit: just searched that egyptian shumba song on youtube ... needless to say my law class was not impressed with the random outburst of song from my laptoppp ... OH WELL :) thanks for the good song

  3. Prom!? What did you wear?

    I went to a ball at the school I left 2 years ago & it was just damn right depressing. Oh well.
