I’m out on the town and dressed as a cat,
My fur isn’t leopard or a cat like that.
It’s not even rabbit or fox or skunk,
It’s pure polyester, it’s retro punk.
Faith Connexion coat.
Mary Katrantzou macrame dress.
Proenza Schouler ‘Lunch-box’ clutch bag.
Deimille silver mirror shoes.
Jan Logan silver hoop earrings.
Location = Marque Restaurant, Sydney.
In a dress by the wondrous Dion Lee,
An earlier model, just like me.
Printed with ink blots, reflecting my psyche,
The soft round blobs of a psyche less spiky.
Dion Lee Rorschach Ink Blot dress
Bally black patent leather slingbacks
Jan Logan earrings
This dress by Self-Portrait has holes you can see,
If you look very close, you can see bits of me.
It keeps me in shape, it’s all in the weave,
As long as I’m still, and don’t try to breathe.
Frilled lace column dress, Self-Portrait; silver mirror sandals, Filippo Raphael
Gold bracelet and silver hoop earrings, Aurelie Bidermann
A big yellow sweet,
Makes curves a cheat.
Green cardi in the street,
White shoes to complete
