I never thought I’d get to be a hair-hopper but yesterday I had my chance and boy oh boy was it fun!  I played model yesterday for a Bust Magazine photo fashion story (all of this terminology is quite new to me)  set in the 60’s.   

The two other models were musicians from Williamsburg, Brooklyn–Nikki Lane and Joe Plunket.  
We shot all over Nashville and I wore more pairs of high-waisted jeans in 10 hours than I’ve ever worn in my life.  The spread should be out in the May or June issue of Bust.  It was a very new experience for me and to be totally honest, it made me really glad that I am a full-time musician and not a full time model.  It was an exhausting day!
And I get to smile a lot more when I play music 🙂
Thanks for reading Friends.

Howdy Folks!  And welcome to Nora Jane’s Closet.

This is what my closet looks like right…now.  No…now.  Well, this is what my closet looked like on March 23, 2009.  It may never be the same again.
I like colors.
I like dresses.
I like cotton and linen.
I like dresses that reach my knees.
(I like vintage undergarments.  Shhh.)
I like the styles of the 1930’s– hard to find.
I like the styles of the 1940’s–less hard to find.
I like the styles of the 1950’s–easy to find and oh boy have I found some gems!
I wear dresses almost everyday from March to November.  This past year I developed a two-dress-a-day habit.  I have a lovely, and ever expanding collection of day dresses and night time dresses.  
I wonder what I’ll wear tomorrow?
Thanks for reading friends,
Nora Jane
