It finally happened. Just when I thought Des Moines (read Winterfell) would be frozen forever, we hit 40 degrees. After three days of negatives, 40 feels more like 70. So I ditched the winter coat (after a short and embarrassing jig) in favor of flannel, a crew neck and leather skirt. I don’t know the […]Read more "Outfit of the Day: Leather Skirt and Contrasting Collars"

My favorite black leather jacket and black Creepers ground the prints, and the dark nature of both prints […]Read more "OOTD: Prints on Prints on Prints"
Things got a little crazy in the office today. First I dyed my hair purple. Then orange. Then red. I look a bit like a parrot vomed skittles on my head. I like it. At least temporarily, which is how long the Streekers dye lasts. I think it pairs well with my black leather skirt […]Read more "OOTD: Leather and Stripes"
