Things I Like!

First off, I have to share the album that made my long, lovely Sunday walk nearly heavenly. It’s the Gaslight Anthem’s side project, The Horrible Crowes. I want to eat this song like it’s fudge:

Gorgeous, right? Another thing I more than like is the fact that New York’s “Fashion” section is claiming that crazy-colored hair is way in style this season. Why do I like this? Because my hairdresser and I have been planning some shenanigans for this winter, and it’s nice to know I’ll be trendy rather than just nuts. Here’s the hot photo from the fun article, click to follow it over:

In furniture, the Thing I Really Like right now is my new lamp. Isn’t it sweet?

It’s heavy and gorgeous and it means my reading corner is back in action. Yay for light/table combos!

Finally, I have to ask you about what YOU like. I just bought tickets to go to San Francisco to visit my lovely friend Jana, and also to attend Juliet Blackwell’s annual Halloween party. I need to look fabulous and slightly trampy.  The theme is Carnival. Where should I look for a costume??? HELP!

  1. If you are talking carnival as in clowns/acrobats then go as a slutty clown. What's a slutty clown? One who wears no clown makeup. But if you're talking about the Brazilian Carnival then just go topless and you're set. 🙂

  2. You need to rent the DVD of a show called 'Carnivale' and take inspiration from that. It was weird and gothic and set in the Depression so there's vintage weirdness to behold as well.

  3. Thanks, Nicole, now I'm the office weirdo listening to the same song on repeat for three hours straight!

    Love the music posts. Keep 'em coming, pretty please!

  4. Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! It's now doubly complicated as my friend is coming and we want to do complementary costumes. She's all tall and slender and gorgeous, and I don't want to ruin her mojo. 😉

  5. I'm with Anita…check out the HBO show "Carnivale". Depression era carnies mean you and friend could both go as the ladies who dance in the "hard show". Max Factor style make up, lacy slips and vintage shoes with good foundation garments under the slips to push everything up and out in all the right places. Add a really cool shawl if you have one or can find one and you are in business. Also you can't ruin her mojo by being the shorter and curvy and gorgeous woman going to the party with her. The great thing about those friends is between the two of you, you cover a great range of lusciousness.
