I Collect Spores, Molds, and FungusPosted: April 21, 2014
I’m not happy with this outfit. It’s for this week’s SIA, inspired by Erté’s “Spring Rain”, and as usual, I got caught up in trying to recreate the painting as closely as I could and forgot that it should be a put-together outfit at the same time. So I ended up wearing all the things. I should’ve gone for something more subtle, or at least take off the lace tights (but my legs are still scarred so tights are kind of a must if I want to wear a dress.) Everybody is killing it this week though, so be sure to check back tomorrow for the full round-up post!
In other news, it has been crazy humid here lately and everything is moldy. And I mean everything. Shoes, bags, belt – anything made from genuine leather. Even my mouse pad. It’s absolutely gross, but there is nothing I can do except to wipe everything down with rubbing alcohol and turn the dehumidifier up high, and wait for the sun to come out. It seems I always have to fight humidity wherever I live. Back in LA it was because there was not enough of it, and here because there’s too much. Ugh.
