to begin

i am a collector. i collect photographs, swatches of material, postcards, knick-knacks, rocks, but most of all, clothes. i am no stranger to the exhilarating high one experiences after a pricey purchase. however, i am at my best when probing thrift stores, digging through garage sales, scouring target, and sewing my own pieces. i’m in it for the thrill of the hunt and the satisfaction of the kill.
i dress to amuse myself, and i am quite lucky to have a cluster of friends who do the same (like the inimitable ms. cheryln). inspiration comes from novels, music, local art, drugstore makeup aisles, family, friends, DIY, san francisco... so all in all, this is a collection of my collections.
