|vintage dress & cardigan // thrifted purse // dollar store ring // Faryl Robin shoes|
The sweater is one of my oldest thrift scores - it's cream cashmere under black lace that came with a big white fur collar that snaps on. I like leaving it off and letting the metal snaps show. I'm sure it would have looked so weird like this in the 1950s, but I like running around with a half-naked cardigan.
I wore this to see Dan Clowes and Chris Ware have a discussion about comics and whatnot at the Oakland Museum of California on Friday evening. I normally don't go to these things, because even though they're free you have to have loads of time to kill waiting in line if you actually want to get in, but I recently did an interview with Clowes so the museum people saved me a seat. The mister I tried seeing John Waters give a talk at CCA earlier this year. We got there two hours early—silly us—and the line was already around the block, so we got ice cream instead and watched A Dirty Shame at home on Netflix instant. The only other time we successfully made it to a "talk" at a museum was to watch Kenneth Anger at The Hammer Museum ramble into a microphone for two hours about how everybody is ripping him off these days and the Jonas Brothers taking over the world and we should all buy clothes from Agnés B.
It was awesome.
