The painting was part of series called "Hair I Wish I Had" which was about hair colors and styles I wish I had (surprise!). It was inspired by my favorite painter and dear friend Georgia's comment that she started painting in high school so that she wasn't so consumed by her hair. I guess this was my response. In a perfect world, I could pull off white blonde hair that could regularly be embellished with Kool-Aid. But I can't, so instead I'm out here in the blogosphere. As you can see this painting contains one of my favorite color palettes to use for outfits and style.
Malin spotted this perfect tree nook for me, perfect because I had already titled the shoot "Free Bird". Also because the park apparently features some wild turkeys.
*Nude Heels: From my last trip to Portland, these are already an absolute favorite of mine. I will not be getting rid of these until they have turned to ash (Frye via Buffalo Exchange)
*Vintage Apron: thrifted.
And now for something completely different, let's check out my accessories:
*Taxidermy Pendant: a beloved birthday gift from Sally, who obviously gets my taste in accessories. It is by a grande company Custom Creature Taxidermy Arts. So in case you are wondering what to get me to go with this lovely necklace...
*Earrings from Cargo, in Portland.
*Vintage 1950s Dress: Can you believe I got this for a buck at a yard sale? I had a packrat/collector friend who decided he just had to give up on his collection of vintage party dresses and fast. When will that happen to me again?
*Vintage Crochet Apron: Portland Bins.
*Vintage 50s Cardigan: from the trunk at Nobody's Baby in Eugene.
Well, I hope you all have enjoyed this candy colored post. Join me on Sunday for my post about Eugene's biggest fashion event, the Carnival of Couture fashion show and bazaar.
