Birthday!…?

First Official Blog of Mine:

So it’s my birthday tomorrow, in case you were wondering. The big 1-6! And to be quite honest, I’m genuinely excited. Usually it’s not that big a deal to me; yeah it’s a special day for the birthday girl, but other than that not so different. But SIXTEEN? That’s a milestone. Not just because of the license thing - although I am pretty excited about that - but because it’s the first age I think of when I think of teenagery. And it’s probably the age I think of because of all the propaganda surrounding it. There’s movies, TV shows, and songs dedicated to celebrating this age. And why not? I’m (un)officially and adult now. I can apply for an array of minimum wage jobs, drive without an adult, volunteer at the animal shelter. It’s been a long time coming, in my opinion, reaching 16. Yeah, yeah, I shouldn’t wish my life away, but at this age I gain freedom, respect, and rights! Until now, it’s been like I wasn’t living up to all the teenagerness associated with my young adulthood. Tomorrow, I begin my true journey as a teenager. Don’t think I’m all about “being 16,” because after tomorrow there’s a good chance I won’t think much about it. And I may be able to drive, but that doesn’t mean I’m getting a brand new BMW that Daddy bought me on his Mastercard. Along with my freedom comes a whole heck of a lot of responsibility. But that’s great too; a new area of maturity that everyone has to face sooner or later. All I’m saying is that I’m excited to reach this ideal, unexplored age and reap all its benefits.

ELIZABETH of “DELIGHTFULLY TACKY”

ELIZABETH’S STYLE: I’d say it’s very vintage inspired.  I have days of wanting to dress more rock & roll, or more sophisticated, so I feel like it varies on a daily basis, but mostly I think most of my outfits are a little bit vintage, with maybe some hipster thrown in there now and then.

INSPIRATION: People and beautiful things around me.  It’s why I love blogging so much, the blogosphere is just full of beautiful, inspiring people posting amazing things on a daily basis. So great!

IF YOU COULDN’T BE YOU, WHO WOULD YOU BE? I would be… I don’t know.  I never really think about being someone else.  Maybe my husband.  It’s be interesting to be a boy, but I don’t think I’d want to stay a boy forever.  Or maybe someone with straight hair.  It’d be cool to see all the different styles I could wear with straight hair.

WHAT ASPECT OF FASHION APPEALS TO YOU THE MOST? I like that it’s a method of describing yourself visually to the world.  We all look at people and make a conscious or unconscious assessment of them based on what they look like.  I love that I can be creative with the way I dress and it can say something about me to others without me having to even say anything.

STAPLE ITEMS FOR FALL: A great, comfortable pair of boots and a coat that is warm and stylish.  I’ve also really loved colorful tights this fall, it’s a fun way to brighten up an outfit.

HOMETOWN GLORY: The style in my hometown (Anchorage, AK) is pretty nonexistent.  It’s a lot of jeans, t-shirts… stuff from PacSun and Abercrombie, mixed with North Face Jackets and boots.  People don’t care much about style in Alaska, mainly because it’s so laid back and it’s also freezing cold most of the year.  But I do love how growing up there didn’t give me any preconceived ideas of fashion or fashion “rules.”  When I started exploring my own style I basically had a blank slate to build off of.  

HOLIDAY WISH-LIST: Pretty much all my wish-list items this year are home decor things.  I love decorating our little house, it’s been a fun process.

Yayoi Kusama’s ‘The obliteration room’ (by Stupie)
“
This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair,  table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively  serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the  museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of  colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the  transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled  explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son  could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes.  The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.
If you liked this you’ll also enjoy Roman Ondak’s Room of Heights and Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s helium-filled kinetic drawing sculpture.
