jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.

I don't own a lot of stuff, don't buy a lot of stuff, don't consider shopping a passtime. But every once in a while I get an enormous urge to own something, something just strikes me, and I have learned that if I don't follow that urge, I'll be sorry later. When I saw those wings in the store, I was beyond smitten. I already had my costume for the event completed, but when I saw the wings, it all went out the window. Wings, yes. That just makes so much sense.

With a friend, I once surprise-gifted someone a pair of sparkling batwings we found when I was buying a pair of jeans. She wore them all night at a party and looked beautiful. I am a believer in wings.
