It's probably not generally known that I have a keen interest in the arts, and would adore to be a Patroness in the 18th century salon manner......despite having little ability, and claiming no knowledge or understanding, I am very drawn to visual arts, most especially painting, photography and film.
Sonic arts is something I had never considered!
Our gorgeous bobbed haired friend Jo, is, as well as a well respected wine writer, also a DJ and sonic artist, and as part of a local collective, has opened a sonic arts gallery and bar, The Auricle.
Not your everyday gallery, I can assure you, and the first of it's kind in New Zealand!
I am all over being supportive, but comprehend ridiculously little about the subject-luckily, when it comes to a grand opening of the gallery last Thursday night, frocking up and prancing about was just where I could shine and demonstrate my support and encouragement. It takes guts and drive to start a new and unusual venture!
O, yes, that helps.
Frock-opshopped, and shortened
Capelet-Wasteland, San Francisco; 'twas a wee cropped jacket that was too small, so I transformed it with a pair of scissors and some bravery, as it's pretty damned old and fragile
Bow-from my lucious sistercousinwife Sarah
Earrings-from the sweetest Squirrel (it was Vanessa's birthday yesterday, incidentally!)
Necklace-Wryd, an awesome shop long defunct
Shoes-thrifted at the Goodwill in Santa Fe 2012
Many of you commented on how very high my heels/wedges were last post-feck yes, they're high!
Luckily I cycle most everywhere, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't survive walking to the corner in those particular shoes!
I adore heels, they make me feel and look tall and powerful and frightfully glamorous, and despite occasional suffering, I'm not giving that up in a hurry!!!
