You know how someone will ask you, "what was the high point of your day today", and you can't think of an answer?
Yesterday there was a big old high point.
1959-1960. Green. V-back.
Found among other crumpled vintage goodies in a big cardboard box in my basement.
Okay, done with that little rant.
The occasion to which I shall wear this simply amazing garment (there I go again...) is to the final production of Les Miserables at a nearby high school. My dear friend Sally is in the pit orchestra and Isabella is on the stage as a beggar and a prostitute (mmkay then Bella).
Good luck, Isabella and Sally! I am sure you both will shine and there shall be much rejoicing at your cast party, because cast parties are simply the best.
Another thing I am rejoicing over... tape. Yes, tape. Specifically Japanese deco tape. I ordered two rolls from PrettyTape on Etsy (support handmade, rah rah!) and am simply in love. My tape is grey and blue and, indeed, very pretty tape. The best part? It's semi-reusable — easy to peel off and restick should you feel the need to go green with tape.
Ah, I almost forgot — my mind is scattered in little pieces over an area about the size of China right now. This is my midnight molskine. Literally, I woke up from a crazy dream and just had to put this in my ideabook. Photos from Teen Vogue. (And look at that, I used my pretty tape.)
It's hard to see the drawing since my scanner doesn't like light colors, but it's just a sketch of the outfit above. But with combat boots. Sigh. I need some combat boots.
