Wild and Free and Plaid

I'm one of those obnoxious people who celebrate their birthdays for the entire month. This shirt is a result of that. Do I want to spend $250 at Dolls Kill? Hell yeah, I do. So I did. Because it's April and all of April is my birthday. I had never shopped at Dolls Kill before and it's a retailer I've been wanting to try for awhile. I can say that I am super pleased with the weirdness of their selection and the insane quickness of their shipping. I ordered on a Friday and had my package by Monday afternoon. What else have I indulged in for my birthday, you ask? Well, let me tell you!

-I bought a mannequin from Craig's List (for art, I promise)
-I bought a disgusting, stained, grody late 1800's Edwardian lace dress to put on said mannequin
-I rented studio space for the first week in May to make the art mentioned above
-I spent way too much money at Sephora during their VIB 15% off sale
-I spent way too much money at Dolls Kill
-I spent way too much money at Asos
-I ate way too much - ice cream, brunch, cookies, more ice cream. And yeah, ice cream one more time.
-I got fancy purple hair
-I got a new tattoo
-I went and photographed a quaint little graveyard 30 minutes from my house
-I read my full year tarot spread and saw a lot of cups and a lot of swords - which balance each other nicely.

The birthday indulgences I've allowed and the things I have done have all felt very me. I hope to take that shameless me-ness into the coming year.
