After spending the day wreaking havoc at Halloween stores and driving around blasting Misfits, Meg was nice enough to help me snap a few photos for the blog yesterday. I figured it was probably time to add a picture of myself to the main page, and you can now learn a little more about me here. I had a really hard time choosing which pictures to make permanent fixtures on the blog, so here are some of my favorites from our little photo shoot.


My great grandmother gave me this skirt when I was a kid, and it's spent the last 13 years hanging in my closet collecting dust. It was one of her favorite skirts to wear to church, and I always thought it was a little too conservative for my taste. When I had my job interview a few weeks ago, I decided to give it a wear-- and instantly kicked myself for neglecting it all this time. It's become one of my favorite pieces because it's so versatile, and I've been wearing it nonstop (though I'll admit my grandmother would hate seeing some of the pairings I've come up with if she were still with us today).

    1. Thank you! Moths are one of my favorites too -- second only to tarantulas, of course :)

  2. I'm in love with this tattoo on your back *-* I love the skirt too, is really basic and It's nice because you can dare mixing with a cool T-shirt or top. I like the look. I read your new "about". A freelance writer? So cool. I'm trying to write a book... about "Benzedeiras", old brazilian women who bless people using "magic", herbs... like a witch, but different, LOL.
    It's really nice to know more about you.
