I’m too tired to re-type everything I wrote about the inspiration for this outfit, but it’s on my blog…I swear I’m not just trying to trick y’all into going there.
If you’ve read or watched One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, you’ll know what I’m talking about when I talk about Nurse Ratched as the sort of initial starting point behind this idea, focused on this syringe pendant that a lot of people found really creepy. It’s from an antique store in Austin that’s basically an enormous antiques/flea market (but inside) with everything from tiny pin-curled doll wigs to Eames clocks to bronzed baby booties to old family photos and postcards. And glass syringes (needle not included). Good thing I remembered to take it out of my carry-on luggage…heh.
Can you tell that I always write my Chictopia entries after my blog entries? It’s nothing personal, it’s just that I want to have the blog post already there so I can say: click here for more, and there’ll actually be more. In a perfect world this wouldn’t make a difference, because I’d still be wide awake and coherent instead of on the verge of crashing on my keyboard. But as it turns out, by the time I get here I’m basically brain-dead. Sorry.
OH AND exciting news! I got 2nd place in the BuyDefinition contest, and so naturally I spent a shitload of time browsing the site and picking out all the pretty things I wanted. More on that later, as I attempt to whittle 20-odd options down to, say, 1 or 2. Good times.
