Do you need me to fix something?

What a silly day. All I did was work so there's really nothing else to say but that this is what I wore.

Bibhu Mohapatra

A whimsical layered look was played with in these dresses. I enjoy the gauzy layers, the geometric squares, the contrast of solids and graphics, barks and brights, and the use of shape and pleating. The first two pictured would be lovely to play with.

Indie Famous

When I was a kid I would dress my Barbies up as these girls. Nina Persson, Shirley Manson, Liz Phair, Juliana Hatfield, Angie Hart, and Jill Sobule all hung out together in my world. As the youngest of three girls I was very influenced by the music my sisters listened to and also by my hippie/hipster parents. And somehow I thought I would be talented and indie famous too. I dunno if it was the complete lack of musical talent and ability to sing that kept me from realizing these dreams. I can only dream up my look and costume if I could be like these beautiful and wondrously talented women. I guess the best I can do is throw a little rock and roll into my college kid wardrobe. The Above Nina Persson has been I think one of the biggest influences on my style and the way i view this world. Her look is always simple and glamorous, her accent enchanting, and her voice and words and perfectly beautiful.
Check out her new A Camp video for the song "Love Has Left the Room" great video, amazing outfits and I would love to have that magenta satin robe/ jacket.
