There’s something special about dressing in something that makes you feel a little bit different from your usual self. Fashion Week is in full swing and although Columbia doesn’t really constitute the sort of fashion playground that NYC does, I still decided to wear something a little different. I put my hair up in my alien mini buns and wore my favorite super structured skirt. I felt out of place in these pieces, like a fashion alien exploring a new and unfamiliar city. It was a good kind of different. Alex and I went to an old antique store and took some photos, and it was perfect, standing among the remains of forgotten objects that were probably important to someone at some point in the past.
My favorite piece had to be the vintage phone booth we found. Standing in it made me feel like a Death Queen Barbie, ready to be shipped off to a foreign planet where I’d have an all black closet and the highest of high heels. It was fun playing a little with my sister, who no matter what, always puts a smile on my face.
