Recently I was in Las Vegas for my sister's bachelorette party and while all the other girls were getting ready, I decided to take a self portrait. I was trying to pin point how I felt there in that moment. It's really a very strange place, and to tell you the truth, I hope to not go back there again, unless I am making a photographic series on it, or to remind myself why I don't enjoy it there. I really felt very strange, and very much like an outcast. This is the outfit I wore to a club. I realized when I got there that my dress wasn't short or tight enough. I wasn't wearing high heels, I was wearing boots. I looked like a flamingo in a coal mine. I remember having this same feeling as a child being at school dances, watching all the other girls look and act older than they actually were. It's like everything and everyone else was moving very fast and I just stood still being wrapped in time. Maybe that sounds a little too dramatic, but hopefully you know what i mean.
