the fox and the fro

On June 9, 2013 by theseventhsphinx


Remember I mentioned getting a wig?

A number of my alter-egos are pleased. I think I need a different name for this look. Zora, maybe. Kiana. Léonie.

I really like shirt dresses, particularly those in casual fabrics, those with pockets, and those with long sleeves (which I then always roll up). So easy to wear, with a call to the rumpled, generously pocketed and buttoned safari aesthetic. [Which we like.] They offer a nice opportunity to showcase a belt, too.

This would look more polished if it had been ironed but I also like it this way, casual and slouchy. I could stand to have a few more of these.

[The curl in the center of the forehead* is accidental.]

*”There was a little girl, who had a little curl…”



I begin to think these sunglasses were made for a fro, they are in such good proportion.


Here the tripod malfunctions mid-snap, and I make a face that I find entertaining. I need a better tripod.


Banana Republic denim shirt dress*, vintage suede belt, Ray-Ban aviators, Skagen watch, Calvin Klein Jeans pumps, Forever Young Foxxy wig, cleopatra collar (eBay).

*I am only tempted by Banana Republic when it is deeply discounted, as this was.


And now I give you one of the best bass lines of all time:

      Yes! I had to include it. Inadvertently taking a candid shot of yourself is not so common, unfortunately. Still, it’s satisfying to know that I instinctively make ridiculous faces like this.
