I’ve been panting to see Tim Burton’s new movie Frankenweenie because I love short, chunky dogs …
… and big-eyed cats with tiny mouths.
MrB and I went to see the movie at a theater a block away from our apartment last night — within the magic zone of invisibility — so I just threw on some lipstick and the only clean t-shirt I could find. I didn’t realize till I left the house that the “stitches” in the middle of the button design on my shirt matched the trompe l’oeil stitching on my vintage Moschino jacket (and all of it matched the stitches on Sparky the Frankenweenie). A post-movie outfit photo was called for. I kept trying to persuade the dogs to pose nicely with me, but they were more interested in looking for potentially poisonous snacks on the sidewalk.
What Wendy Wore
Jacket: Moschino (acquired from eBay in 2009)
T-shirt: From the Fashion and Textile Museum in London (2006, probably)
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity (2011)
Shoes: Ash Shoes wedge sneakers (2012)
Necklace: My own IDGAF design
Normally, I don’t wear any jewelry when I’m in the magic zone of invisibility, but I’m enjoying the IDGAF necklace more than ever after my gorgeous client Susan shocked the wig-hats off her more conservative blog readers by wearing hers. And here I had been worried that I’d had lost my touch to wind people up — especially after my mother thought the necklace was cute and funny. I guess mom has gotten used to my naughty ways. Épater la bourgeoisie, Susan!
