It's an addiction of sorts

Greetje was right: someone has been sniffing her eyeliner. I didn't wear any today but its effects are long-lasting and far-reaching. 

Wearing: thrifted (what am I? an idiot? do you think I would buy these new?) day-glo-pink ski pants with stirrups, made in Japan, the fabric feels completely freak-me-out gross but I needed that (colour is faded in this photo); ruby-red brocade Chinese-style short-sleeve jacket-top thing over a long-sleeve T; DIY-scribbled-on-ivory-'70s-style platform vinyl boots; thrifted lucky charm beaded bag, and magic loupe from O, and; my whiney muppet roadkill maxi coat. Yup. Photo farking and attitude, well, refer to opening sentence. 

I'm sure I squashed many a bug under these clodhoppers today. I feel bad about that. A construction crew tried to use me as a pylon and I refused because they wouldn't pay me union wages. Cheap buggers. Squish! 

Okay, I wasn't going to join VM because I wanted a blog break, but HERE I AM!! Back at Visible Monday at Patti's NOT DEAD YET STYLE. Anything to get that fabularsenic hat photo with eyeliner off my top page. Pfft.

  2. So happy that you didn't take a blog break! Brilliant day-glo-pink ski pants that pair perfectly with your facial expression and your muppet roadkill maxi coat. Kind of missing your eyeliner though!

  3. Well, I LOVED the eyeliner! I hope to see it again (ahem). The manic energy in this photo speaks to the manic energy in ME!

  4. No blog break for you! However, sniffing eyeliner is socially acceptable these days, so go with that (liquid) flow. I love your coloured insanity. Pylons are orange, so they must have been making an exception for you.

  6. Eyeliner??? I can quit any time I want. You look fab-u-tastic in your ski pants and platforms, ready for anything. Thanks for sharing the joy with Vis Monday, xox.

  9. I know - sometimes you just need to change the most recent blog photo whether you want to blog or not. I'm very remiss on blogging lately, and not much good at comments, either. As you can tell. But your outfit looks very Monty Pylon!

  10. freaky fabric, you could wear tights to keep it off your legs. Or just enjoy the creepy feel.

  16. Are they the kind of pants that swish when you walk thus creating enough static to animate Frankenstein's Monster? Your renewable energy potential will make up for bug-crushing karma issues. Namasté.

    Say no to the eyeliner sniffing to avoid cats eye nostrils. Also, please stay.

  20. Obviously I'm using the wrong eyeliner. Someone needs to hook me up stat.

    I can just imagine the swish swish sounds of those ski pants as you walk.

    You kind of look like you could swallow the world in that photo.

    And if you ever get that union job you'll be set and never have to work another day in your life.

    bisous

  21. Dazzle us with art ... never mind that the pants feel icky! Dazzing photo indeed ... best thing I've seen in a week! So good to see you, Mel. Thanks for the encouraging comments at my place. I'm just coming out of psychic-hibernation, and the world looks a lot better when I see you, always!

  23. I wonder how small children react to this phsychedelic picture?
    Did I say you sniffed the eyeliner? I must be more polite next time (never).

  28. When it comes to expressiveness, you are The Queen! Who else would wear crazy looking-and-feeling ski pants as a statement? Now that's an outfit that tells stories... Love the photo! It made my day! xxx

  29. An addiction you say? May have to consider 'Eyeliners anonymous', or as I prefer to think of it, 'Eyeliners synonymous' (stare-painter/gaze-swiper/look-contourer/ogle-edger/peep-sketcher).

  31. Blogging Breaks! Ah yes I keep taking those myself though not really on purpose. I thought your particular brand of fun, or those eyeball piercing pants might jump start my brain but I find I still cannot leave an intelligent comment. I do have enough brains cells functioning though to note that you are truly fab! xoxo

  32. Don't understand everything in this post but I'm happy that you wrote a post and not devote yourself to a decadent non blogging activity.
