Never Land

Milly blouse & camisole. Betsey Johnson skirt. Vintage flower headband. Vintage costume yellow pearl & tusk necklaces. Vintage costume cage, diamond & feather rings. Emilio Cavallini tights. Chanel ballerinas.
Today I tucked a swiss dot blouse into a tattered hem skirt & splashed down the flooded sidewalks in a pair of ruby red slippers. The skirt's shredding is cunningly constructed: it drapes over my legs while I'm at rest, but one good twirl spurs the fabric to dance with me. My elementary school uniform fostered a dislike of collared shirts; however, this Peter Pan collared top is unlike a regular button-down blouse - it's more suggestive of a 1970's schoolgirl than of a corporate climber. On the subject of academia, a recent article in The NY Times' Art section reviewed two Boston museums: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston & the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. As an English/Art History graduate from Boston University, I'm quite familiar with both of them, but Ms. Stewart's former home was my favorite during those years away - it reminded me of my beloved Frick Collection in NYC.
