About me

Gender FEMALE
Location United States
Introduction This blog is dedicated to playing and having fun with adornment. It is not about embracing charity, intellectuality, activism or spirituality – very worthwhile areas of my life that I practice & celebrate also but this is about the ways I play by dressing up, down, sideways - any way my fancy strikes me that day. Of course I’m influenced by the weather & where I’m going; sometimes I build a whole look around a necklace or a pair of shoes. When I walked into my acupuncturist’s office the other day she asked, “have you always dressed so cute?” I grew up in Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley to be specific. At puberty my interest in things feminine exploded. It went "shaboom" like the song so popular that summer before junior high school. Seventeen magazine was my bible. To achieve the highlighted hair look I so loved, I powdered some strands of my brown hair. To better achieve the bleached, Southern California surfer look, I graduated to putting lemon juice on my wet locks; letting them bleach out while drying in the sun. I was one the first in class to experiment with makeup. See more at bottom of Blog.
