Victoria B.'s Profile

About

I pretty much live for vintage clothes, costume jewelry, antique furniture, handmade fabric accessories, sushi, indie music, old muscle cars, and my cats.

I'm obsessed with blue-ringed octopi, black opals, hot pink hair, and big, bold jewelry (especially pieces that involve octopi or felines). I'm easily distracted by hot pink anything, glitter, sparkly things, anything with lots of color, holograms, warm sunny days, and weird-yet-danceable music.

I'm a HUGE nerd for science -- Biological Sciences and Textile Chemistry in particular. I also teach high school Physical Science, Biology, Environmental Biology, and Anatomy & Physiology to support my vintage clothing habit. ;) I sell vintage clothing to pay my graduate school bills (working on a Masters in Zoology) and to fund my field research trips.

I love meeting new people who share my interests AND new people who *don't* share my interests!
