i don’t wear black very often, but i love this vintage ruffly square dance dress and have to break it out occasionally. i’ve had it for ages and it will be one of the dresses i never get bored with.
as you can see, i am incorporating my lucite cane into my style nicely.

song inspiration: “plasticities” by andrew bird. man, love me some andrew bird. i see him around chi-town a lot since he lives in my neighborhood and i have seen him play live tons of times. honestly, he’s kind of a genius, not to sound lame, but all aspects of his work are amazing. his lyrics are clever and thoughtful and interesting, and then the music is so melodic. yet somehow different too…the varied plucking and layering violin techniques along with his whistling add so many textures to the sound.
