What I Wore: The Owls Are Not What They Seem

Posted in What I Wore by Ciara on March 31, 2010

Life has been Lynchian as of late… I thought I might dress the part.

My favorite garment to bring out in the spring is my beloved owl skirt. It has actually been requested by friends lately as it seems to be their favorite as well. It was purchased in a church basement thrift store in a $1 bag sale during high school. It has seen many incarnations since. Playing it up a little more ladylike is how the owl skirt fits in this spring.

My best friend, Dalton, is here visiting and so I don’t have the time to make a huge post but…  I didn’t want to leave you hanging, so here is my look for tonight.  This is not my Halloween costume or really a costume at all I just got inspired by my favorite film, David Lynch’s Eraserhead.

We’ve been making things for our costumes all day today so tomorrow promises to be incredible!  I hope to have a lot of pictures to share.  Have an amazing weekend!
