Wendy Time

I'm so excited. It finally got cold enough for me to wear my pink leather biker jacket.
It's such a cute take on the biker shape...


Also? There's THIS...


That's right. An airbrush unicorn with creepy teeth. BOOM.

Life In A Gold Plated Body Cast

I'm not sure where in the new house to take pictures. So I'm going to try a couple places. The first one I tried was my dressing room. I get dressed in there...


It's a pretty great room, but not, I think the right place for pictures as it turns out.

Whatever, who cares? Because it finally got cold and I got to wear LAYERS. And FUR and GIANT BOOTS.



Those boots. I love them. The beading, the suede, the ridiculous rabbit fur. I got them maybe two or three months ago and it was pretty rough waiting for the cold. But it came and it even stayed a few days.


And I STILL think you can never go wrong with a silk romper. Unless you also have on two cardigans and a pair of tights and you have to pee and the bathroom is occupied and you KNOW that even after you get in there you have to take off ALL YOUR CLOTHES before you can pee...but really, even then, I still vote yes on silk rompers.

A reintroduction

Hi. I'm Erin. Or E.J. to my friends. Let's be friends.

I live in Dallas, and I work at Buffalo Exchange. It's nice work, if you can get it, and I've never been happier. I have a ridiculous level of freedom in my sartorial choices, limited only by my imagination and my funds. My style has evolved since I started working at Buffalo Exchange, not because I am any different, or like different things, but because I have access to so many things and the dress code to wear them. It's fun.

I like:
Really tight pants
Sterling Silver
Mismatched earrings
Slightly subversive jewelry
Reality Bites
and looking slightly ridiculous.

I wear gold eyeshadow and gold liner on the daily and this fur coat when the temp drops below 60 degrees...

"Work With What You've Got" is about looking and feeling good with the resources you have. Working within your budget, body, time and style. It's just a bit of fun, really, without pressure to spend more than I should, or be anything I'm not.

Ghost Town

Lazy. I've just been lazy. But I'm over it. Watch this space. I'm digging the camera and the tripod out. Let's do this.
