Jazz Age Party Part Dos

I've never been able to resist a tarot reader (aka: psychic, bullshitter, clairvoyant, palm reader, crystal ball gazer, etc). Life is full of surprises and there's nothing like taking one day at a time blah blah blah, but the fact that someone can give me a little something about the future provides me with a great deal of comfort. Who doesn't want to hear a "you'll be rich" or "you'll travel a lot" prediction every once and then? I've been told this same crap so many times that I'm about to think that my "predicters" are failing to tell me that it won't happen on this life but probably when I re-incarnate as a flea on a flea circus traveling around the world in the back of a monkey. 
Last Saturday I spotted this lovely lady from far away. She was not palm reading anybody, but her turban came with super prophet powers, or at least that's what I thought. I approached her and asked her to read my palm. She told me that she was trying to nail the grandma look and not the psychic look, but that she'll use her best future-telling-skills if it meant that I was going to leave her alone.  This time the future seemed a lot more brighter than before as she told me that I was going to have five husbands and that the last one was going to take away my money (I'm assuming the money we keep talking about will be provided to me via husband #1, 2, 3, or 4 -5 will be the crook- since the only valuables  I currently have are my four-legged beasts and a couple of MiuMiu's). 
Can't wait for the future! Future, here I come!

Governor's Island Jazz Age Lawn Party 2013

I pretty much wait all year long for this event. I get to dress-up, drink wine and dance along with thousands of other lost souls in constant fascination with the prohibition era. 
Can't wait for next year.

On Chastity Belts

Harness Belt should be a more exact term for the weird appurtenance that lays so peacefully over my body. Harness Belts are not designed to prevent sexual intercourse however, your mating possibilities might decrease exponentially with the continued use of the fashionable, anti-sexy, and beautiful version of a posture corrector brace collar, so I might as well call this wonderful device a Chastity Belt since the outcome will be the same: you will not get laid. 

-"What are you wearing tonight?"
-"You know, my chastity belt with my vintage dress and a pair of Miu Miu's"
-"Cool, enjoy"

In all seriousness...isn't this belt the coolest thing ever? Yes? No? Maybe? Am I weird? :)

Vintage dress rescued from a certain trip to my aunt's closets in Colombia. Remember this?
Miu Miu shoes, BCBG Chastity Belt :)

*Have you ever google'd chastity belts?
this has got to be a joke!

Mon chéri amour

Spontaneous, free, animal lover, generous, gracious, and over all gorgeous.
Erika Posada's illustrations for deletereo (Have you checked this website yet? I love it!)

Imagine that your intentions can heal those who are not well.
Imagine that you can bring hope to those who are feeling helpless.
Imagine that you can bring strength to those who feel weak and fearful.
Imagine that your thoughts affect the natural forces of the universe, that you can bring rain and sunshine, clouds and rainbows.
Imagine that every thought you have, every word you utter, every deed of yours brings some benefit to the world.
Excerpts from "The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire" by Deepak Chopra.
