OOTD: Vintage skirt circle skirt and newsprint nails

For Queerer Park, a dance party at Beauty Bar Chicago, I paired a bustier with a thrifted vintage circle skirt:

Lately I’ve gone on a shortening spree, cropping thrifted skirts to the appropriate length on me. Often, skirts that are tea length or maxi generally hit me somewhere below the knee to mid-calf and it’s not cute. So, I busted out the rotary cutter and raised the hemlines on this skirt to skim the tops of my knees.

I did my nails the night before, using a copy of the Chicago Reader to create these newsprint nails. I tore out part of a section about Chicago Pride, clipped it to fit my nail shape and applied lots and lots of topcoat.

This dance party benefitted T.G.I.F., Chicago’s transgender, gender-nonconforming, and intersex pride. Some of my favorite shots from the night, courtesy of Glitter Guts photo booth, are below:
