I remind myself of a succulent sugarcoated melon flavored tart gumdrop today.   (The dress is Michael Stars, quite affordable and made in the USA).

Since I am trying to get ready for New York in lickety-split lightening speed time, I'll keep this baby short.  Soon, I'm going to post about the number of callouses I've developed on my poor hands.  I never thought one could get callouses in such places.  The building of my ear wires in large numbers has given me tough spots all over my hands--- the way a seasoned guitar player has merit bumps on the tips of his fingers.  The more you play, the harder they become. I'm quite proud of my bumps (hehehe).  But in order not to feel like a butch mechanic in a local autoshop, I offset the calloused beauties with a sweet dress from one of my favorite local shops, Mabel & Zora.

It was a little chilly when I left for the studio, so I paired one of my favorite jeans--from another local favorite, Pin Me Apparel---with the ensemble, to keep me cute and warm!  My gray strap-happy shoes come from yet ANOTHER local twinkle, Shoefly.

The earrings are a new betsy & iya fave (well, my favorite at least).  I'm experimenting with a buttload of vintage chain and making all kinds of new items for the drips section in my shop.  These are just a preview.  I'll let y'all know when I update the shop.

Don't forget to comment for the giveaway (or spread the word for folks you know in NYC)!  xoxoxoxo!

***Song of the Moment: Starfish and Coffee, by Prince*** (i know, i know, I'm on a prince kick lately.  this is one of my all time favorite prince songs off of one of my all time favorite prince albums, Sign of the Times.  If you've never listened, you should.  It's wildly fantastic.)
