I vant to be alone


I love how this photo came out. It's how I would do Garbo if she had blue hair and wore huge honking glasses. I did this shoot in a hurry today to slip into Judith's one-year anniversary(!) Hat Attack #12 at Style Crone, very last minute, and Sacramento's Share-in-Style: Denim at Mis Papelicos, co-hosted this time by Judith.

I haven't worn this hat out yet. It was purchased as a blue wig but I prefer it as a puffy hat with a scarf. The lenses on these glasses are clear - I just like them. The denim jacket you've probably seen before, very fitted, and it has little glitter bits on it. Underneath is my Jimi Hendrix T and my enormous loupe O rigged up for me. Finally, those are my cycling pants, and in the background are bunches of paintings I've cut off the stretcher frames and wrapped for storage. It's the glamorous life I tell ya.

Whew!

That hat is a real beauty but on you with those larger than life specs you are like a comic book character come to life and I mean that in the best way! I bought my last pair of circle specs, they make me look fugly, if you email my your address they are yours!

Absolutely stunning. You do Garbo better than Garbo. I am swooning over you creative headwear and your glasses. Thank you for helping me celebrate the first anniversary of Hat Attack.and for bringing your denim glamour to Share-In-Style.

It's very chic, such a fun look!

I just love the way you're sitting on the floor, looking wistful and maybe a little bored while your sugar daddy is picking out some new art for his penthouse. The only reason you're waiting patiently is because he promised to take you dancing at Studio 54, and you know your REAL boyfriend will be there. You minx.

Connie said...

You know it really is the glamorous life. This is so Garbo. This is better than Garbo. It is Bago. You are a beautiful blue enigma.

Penny-Rose said...

wow, this photo is just wow. the hat, scarf, glasses are all amazing, but it is the look in your eyes that makes it.

Forest City Fashionista said...

Dahhhhhhling, I think Ariane is right - I can just picture you with hair that exact shade of pale turquoise! Those are the glasses I'm going to be wearing in the next 10 or 20 years. They are perfect portrait frames for those gorgeous blue eyes.

Connie said...

You are so clever, I love how you took that blue wig and scarf and made a hat, and I must say, a very fashionable and lovely hat. Watch out you'll be moving to London and designing hats for all the royal ladies :)
It was so nice getting a visit from you.
I hope that you are having a wonderful summer.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
