Nicole: Forgive us for our post-Chicago Chicago reprise. But Kelly just developed the second roll of our Lomography four lens camera film and these are the photos that ensued…
K: On our last full day in the windy city, I discovered that I, having planned for NYC prices, had not nearly blown my budget for the trip. (HOW COULD THIS BE?!) So we went vintage shopping in the only clothes we had left that didn’t stink. Nicole got this tee at Shedd Aquarium. We lurved the Jellies.
N: The jellies were super fucking rad!
N: Sometimes early(ish) mornings and a lack of clean(ish) clothes make for verrry interesting outfits. (Just like camping!) Here I am wearing Kelly’s sweater vest and floral pants while she rocks out my vintage Lacoste menswear cardigan.
K: As it was our last day together, we decided to celebrate the most hallowed of holidays, our BOOiversary, with the frothy crunch of multicolored macarons. Then we donned evening-wear for a night at the theater.
K: Nicole acted in Mary Zimmerman’s Metamorphoses at Boise State, so we had to see the production she directed for Lookingglass Theatre. We dressed ostentatiously to shock the overabundance of middle-aged people in the audience. (I hear they alone keep theater afloat in this country.)
N: Be it Chicago or Boise or even certain NYC theatres, the blue hairs always manage to get their paws on the creative goods. Our only way to stand out is to deviate from the standard cocktail dress/suit jacket and tie dress code when we see such a show. I’m gonna wear a gold lame pantsuit (masquerading as pants) with a purple polyester top. Maybe you can see the top of the jumpsuit tucked into my stockings…so what?!
K: Oh, you know the bitch can work a muffin-top at the disco. E’rrbody wants a bite! I wore silver-toed booties (hand-painted by me), a silver collar, and
a little a lot of exposed neon pink bandeau bra. Also, tuxedo jacket for warmth (not modesty).
N: Believe you me, when the boo is in such a ferocious outfit, getting dressed can be quite a challenge. We like to compliment/justify each others extreme looks. It took several tries to get this outfit working. In the end it was alllllll worth it.
K: In one short week I will be in New York City, and we will have the challenge of dressing together for nine whole days, one of them being my 27th birthday. Woah, officially late twenties. Watch me go.
Next Week: NYC or BUST
