Although these photos aren't very flattering, this is the look I wore on the Front Page of the Miami Herald in December of 2010, when my boyfriend and I caught the camera's eye at Art Basel due to our fabulous style. It's an outfit I still rock in warm weather when I need to look classy for daytime or nighttime. What I especially like about the jacket is its anachronistic quality--it could be from the forties, but it's more likely from the eighties with those gigantic shoulder pads. But really I'm not sure and I don't know if anyone else is, either. I believe in mixing the past, the present, and the future for a Retrofuturist look I can call my own. Bring back the Flappers and their ideology! Life is fun, flirty, and unique!

Love you, Blake! What I'm missing in this photo is a two foot long cigarette holder. (Not that I smoke. I usually keep a stick of chalk in it in case I need to illustrate something.)
