Over 20 years ago I was in my favorite vintage store, Screaming Mimi's, and they had a dangly chandelier necklace that I immediately became obsessed with. I love anything drippy and glamorous. My favorite color is shiny. About that time I had been working as an intern at Paper for a while and was developing my 'alcoholic housewife' signature look. A pair of flat front pants that I hacked the hem off, a shell which was usually a T-shirt silhouette, but in some highly-uncomfortable polyester, a wildly patterned ladies’ blouse, and some kind of crazy jewelry. I had long hair then that I wore in a little bun. Once I got that first chandelier necklace I was hooked. I was a big flea market and thrift store addict then. Now as I've gotten older (and have been sober for fifteen years) I've toned things done but still do the big jewelry and a ladies’ handbag. Now I'm more about a uniform of flat front pants and a Lacoste shirt. For special occasions I pull out the old alcoholic housewife looks but now they're Lanvin or Proenza Schouler instead of vintage.
