In this photo I’m standing in a doorway in the French Quarter of New Orleans – my friend Paul kept yelling “Beautify! Beautify!” while taking my picture so I kept smirking.

I had a lovely time in New Orleans. I left very early in the morning on Friday, right after the US shot at the moon. I had dreams all night that it was going to shoot back! I slept on and off during the bus ride through the sheets of rain and miles and miles of murky swamps.

Here I am at my gallery opening of Deep.Down.Dirty, Female Sexuality in the South at Antenna Gallery, New Orleans. It was a successful show, and I’ve sold half of it so far! I have worn this dress on many different occasions, but it was so long that I had stepped on the lace while going up stairs many many times. I had planned on clipping around the flowers for a while, and I’m halfway pleased with the way it turned out. I still think it looks a little kinderwhore!

Me and Roxanne (from persephassa.com) at the opening of Inappropriate Covers at Brown University in April , 2009. I’m wearing the dress at full length here without the bolero. Look how cute Roxanne is!
