Out With the Old

I rang in the New Year at Carnivolution. I was one of the squarest people there, despite my “costume.”


Mask, Cappel’s (self-customized). Dress, thifted. Tights, Urban Outfitters. Shoes, Nine West.


I had actually forgotten all about this dress. I ran across it while searching for another. It turned out to be the perfect match for the mask I had embellished the day before.


I added the feathers to the mask.

A lot has been said in the blogosphere about the shittiness of 2009. Personally, I wouldn’t qualify the year as “bad,” but it was a year of transition. It’s difficult to see the old go, but the new has so much potential. Bye, bye 2009. You can kiss me on the…

In fact, goodbye to the entire decade! It was definitely a wild ride.

As an extra treat, here I am on New Year’s Eve 2000 (with my friend Shawn). Little did I know what was to come!

I love this dress. I used to have an all black version of this dress that I used to wear to play bass clarinet in concert band (it was actually in the 80's Haha....)

Happy New Year to you. I really enjoy coming by and seeing what you today. Leslie

You look amazing! 2009 was actually a really great year for me, although I understand that wasn't the case for a lot of people. Happy New Year and all the best for 2010!
