We're Camping in a Corner of the Room
My outfit was inspired by the Cherry Blossom Girl's trip to the U.S. and Vintage Americana.
I spent the evening the best way possible-- listening to four Mexicans chat about politics and social issues in Spanish. Some days I love my life!
Dress: Faith 21
Shoes: Velvet Angels (shopbop)
Bracelets: Vintage from Ball Park Flea Market (Catholic Saints bracelets)
Glasses: Secondhand from garage sale (popped out the prescription lenses)
Music obsession for the day (and inspiration for title of post):
On another note, I received this award from Little Violet Dress! Thank you, it totally made my day.
Ok, so evidentally, I'm supposed to list seven interesting things about myself. Here goes.
1. I can recite (by heart) the first fifteen lines of The Canterbury Tales in middle English (the language in which it was originally written).
2. I speak Danish fluently.
3. I'm obsessively vain about my teeth.
4. I'm a writer. I mostly write creative nonfiction, though I have been known to venture into fiction now and again.
5. I was an exchange student in Denmark (hence, the speaking Danish bit).
6. I'm a complete ludite. I am refuse to learn anything about technology unless it directly serves my immediate needs (i.e. this blog).
7. I have experienced four sweats in a traditional Lakota sweat lodge. In fact, it is the only time that I have ever (truly) prayed.
Now, it is my turn to tag seven people.
