My new work is up in Burlington’s downtown vegetarian restaurant…trust me folks you won’t miss having meat options. The food is amazing! If you get a chance please go check out my FREAK SHOW—be sure and tell the staff you’re a friend of mine (and tip them handsomely).
The dress that is hanging with “jumping through hoops” was created by Maggie Pace and I for the ART HOP FASHION SHOW, STRUT in 2012. It started out as wedding dress from Goodwill and ended up like this. Maggie did some crazy stitch work with objects we found around the studio. In the 11th hour leading up to the fashion show it wasn’t quite runway ready and my friend from Minneapolis, Marita Meinerts did some stitch work too. I think it looks cool with stripey tights on this new girl. She is going places!
I will be changing this show while it is up and swapping pieces out
Sorry, I really don’t have anything too unsavory to tell you about my trip. I was, however given a phone number after a photo of me in a kaftan appeared on a friend’s instagram account. I am pretty sure that this particular Casanova says flattering things and leaves his phone number for all middle-aged women wearing a kaftan by any pool in Las Vegas so I am not letting it go to my head. Never underestimate the power of the kaftan though.

This is what Vegas feels like to me all the time—day and night—exciting & exhausting.
We did spot the ghost of Elvis very late one night. He is alive and well.
