Look No. 0000-16



Somewhere in The Carolinas – I recently scored this sharp leopard print velvet blazer shopping secondhand. It appears to be 1990s vintage. Fully lined with Mandarin collar and is in excellent condition. On this day, I wore it with a 1980s vintage grey silk long sleeve blouse, a pair of modern high waisted black cropped flares and tall brown leather Chelsea boots [note: These boots have been one of the best clothing trades I have ever made. Thanks, Minx Vintage – Athens, Georgia!]. This outfit really came to life with its’ accessories. A pair of clear gold fleck ‘Wave’ sunglasses and a color-blocked black and brown cross-body bag liven things up as do today’s vinyl picks:

The Coming World Government “666” [1970/ Triad Sound] – Evangelist Darrell Dunn

Thrash and Burn [2006/ Human Ear] – Ariel Pink

Muse [1979/ Island] – Grace Jones

Ralph Carmicheal Presents The Electric Symphony [The Moog Synthesizer] [1970/ Light] – Ralph Carmicheal and His Friends

Indian Giver [1969/ Buddha Records] – 1910 Fruitgum Co.

Christmas Eve: 2016

L.T. – in 1970s vintage textured leopard jacket over modern gold sequin minidress with black stars.

Athens, Georgia – I have been awake for over eighteen hours. Prepared my first turkey (Brined overnight while I was at work), made a hearty cornbread dressing, blackberry cobbler with lattice work top and a rich frosted chocolate cake – All from scratch. Every thing turned out super. Every thing offered was just right (including guests, large and small, who attended).

Mama’s beat (but, I feel so very good).

Happy holidays to you and yours.
