Fingernails that Shine Like Justice

Cake (Short Skirt, Long Jacket)

This skirt I made is from one of my dad’s old shirts. It is simply sewn, but I love the buttons and pocket that makes its former life as a shirt obvious.

For some reason the skirt got me thinking about Cake’s song “Short Skirt, Long Jacket” and I found a sweet video on Vimeo of the lyrics. There is just something about visualizing the lyrics that strengthens the words in my mind.

Plus, their similes rock.
