The Girls I Want To Be

Whenever I need to learn something new, I turn to Susan. If it’s cool, she knows about it. She introduced me to photographer Jennifer Tzar, whose photos tend to have an air of otherworldy nostalgia. This girl with the purple hive is exactly who I want to be!

I now realize that I’ve snagged lots of pictures of Girls I Want To Be. Here’s another one.

She’s wearing a skirt I’ve seen on Amanda Palmer, and god know I’d like to be Amanda Palmer! This next one is in the same ballpark, but with Natalia Brilli accessories.

Now, this one is a little scary but she’s still a Girl I Want to Be (wearing accessories by Manuel Albarran.)

The saddest thing ever is that I’ve always wanted to be blond, even though my BFF’s wig proved beyond a doubt that god didn’t make me blond for a good reason:

Aaaaaah!   So, now the trick is to remember that I’m not 20.   Yesterday, while not considering this key fact, I flipped out over these blue sequin pants….but luckily I remembered this morning, when I saw them again for $100 less.   Be gone, sequin pants, and don’t slam the door on your way out!

At least I can sort of approximate Patti Smith in my Ann Demeulemeester jacket.

It’s good to be satisfied with who you are and what you look like, probably. But wouldn’t a purple beehive be fucking fantastic?!

    Only so long as you keep the ass that appears when I close my browser.

    I could though, handle a purple beehive.

    “Purple rain, purple rain, ooooh, aahhooh purple rain.”

    I rarely notice the hair anyway.

  2. JK says:

    I copied and pasted. I usually (given my own devices) spell it “purple.”

    However… it is your ass.

  3. Swayframe says:

    Let me be the first to point out that a purple beehive is NOT beyond the realm of possibilities!

    If you do it, I will!

  4. skye says:

    Well, a purple beehive on you SW would be magnificent – on me it would be just plain odd.

  5. Bex says:

    I wanna be the girl with the tattoos…she looks badass even though she’s wearing a skirt….is the other one with the mexican wrestler mask a Lavazza commercial??? Love that silver trench! I bet you’d look good with a purple beehive.

  6. Sister Wolf says:

    JK – My ass is getting a swelled head from all the compliments!

    Swayframe – Shall we go together?? Otherwise, you might back out.

    skye – You know, I can’t picture you with one. Your face is too sweet for something so sinister.

    Bex – Oh my god, the Lavazza website!!!!!!!! I found her in a gallery of Manuel Albarran’s work.

  7. honeypants says:

    The purple hive is sublime. I wish I could be that girl too!

  8. Jill says:

    The girl you are is motherfucking outrageously cool…and I have no doubt you can rock the purple beehive! Purplelishishness!!

  9. You’re already utterly fantastic Sister Wolf, but if you must change I think the purple beehive would suit you.

    Hey Sister,

    I received an invitation from my watch forum guys for a “Social Networking” site and immediately thought of you. I promise, as far as I am aware, this is not a scam.

  11. As much as I want to be the Mexican wrestler/superhero girl, I think it’d just be a little hot for nyc summers. And I’ve always wanted to go blonde too, but sadly my complexion doesn’t agree.

  12. hammie says:

    Fellow non blonde says you are better than Patti Smith. You mean more to me than she ever could.

  13. Deni says:

    From an ex-brunette who went blond (don’t do the wig thing it doesn’t give you a proper prospective). I’ve got a dark complexion and dark eye brows and went blond (and it’s not all that bad, right?). Now, if I had hair like yours I would go blond and then tinge it with purple and do the beehive! It would be the bomb (can I still use that term?). Look at our age . . . of . . .erm . . . ah . . . oh . . . let’s say . . . 29 . . . we can do anything! Go for it! As they say it’s better to regret something you’ve done rather than something you haven’t done!
    Love you

  14. Icy says:

    Oooh, ooh, be the harem pants girl, then you could hide the beehive in there when you didn’t need it.

  15. Sister Wolf says:

    Honeypants – You would look great in that color hair, have you ever tried it??

    Jill -Wow, that’s more love than I’ve had all week, keep it coming! xo

    Iheartfashion – It’s a nice fantasy, I can tell you that. Black hair doesn’t seem to cooperate when you want to strip the color.

    Bubba – I couldn’t read that, but I’m sure your intentions are honorable.

    fashion herald – Why must we be tortured by blonds????

    Hammie- Oh god, but I can’t sing, Hammie!

    Deni – Your blond WAS the bomb, have you changed it?!

    Icy – You seem like a very practical person, good advice.

    Leş gibi chuck, leverage, spartacus yayınla; madmen'i, nip/tuck'ı, breaking bad'i e2'ye yolla. Cnbce, seni izlemek için 1 neden dahi yok.

  18. Giving thumbs up for Aol. (it is not AOL any more, proper?) as well as the London Olympics, is just for securing that you’re around the correct side in the wave?
