My niece Anna has this amazing skirt. It has layers upon layers of pink tulle over a satin underskirt with a ruffly hem and polka dots made of golden glitter.
I mean, OMGrsh, right!!
She wore it a few weeks ago, and noticed me admiring it.
She was like:
(Side note: It’s a beautiful thing when your nieces become old enough to share their clothes with you. Their clothes are waaaaaay cooler than mine.)
Anna was like:
She gave it to me.
(I love you, Anna.)
It does leave glitter everywhere, but I don’t see that as a problem.
I see it more as marking my territory.
I pair it with my denim shirt and sequin undershirt and it makes me feel like a cowboy ballerina princess.
Last week, I wore it on the train.
When I caught the train home, it must have been the same train from that morning, because:
I’ve heard there’s an internet shop that lets your enemies buy envelopes full of glitter to send to you. When you open the envelopes, glitter gets everywhere.
Obviously I need to make more enemies.
In other news…I decorated my porch like the Haunted Mansion! I really like the Haunted Mansion ride, I’d love to write a novel based on it. (That, and Candyland. I’ll add it to the bucket list.) Anyway I think the porch looks pretty groovy.
The “Haunted Mansion” font is called Ravenscroft. (Or at least, the knockoff I used is.)
I found the idea for Madam Leota’s head on pinterest. You turn a fishbowl upside down, fill it with black tulle, and cut out a photo picture of her head. Gnarly.
The only problem? No one will see it…my townhouse is tucked away in the corner of the subdivision, and the front door faces a fence. Bummer. But at least I can share it here ^_^
