About

555

Hello! My name is Sam, and welcome to my blog!

I’m a thirty-something lady living in New Orleans with my husband, Ryan, and our two hairless cats, Chicken and Rabbit.  

FiveTwentyThree is a collection of bits from my life, from the things that I see, the books that I read, and, occasionally, the outfits that I wear.

I collect various oddities and specimens, and I love taking photographs, reading in coffee shops, cheese plates in wine bars, and vintage dresses. I am a student of the Tarot, and lover of the occult. I am a Gemini with a Scorpio rising, and my moon is in Leo.

I’m inspired by the magic of my beautiful city, the amazing people in my life, and I try to pay attention to all the little things that I used to take for granted! I don’t believe that everything is rainbows and sunshine, but I try to make the most of it all, even if there’s a little bit of a cynic just under my surface.

Still curious? Drop me a line!

Where have I seen you before?

I co-founded Haute Macabre, a fashion and lifestyle blog dedicated to alternative fashion and art.

In a past life, I was better known as Fractal on the widely popular website, Suicide Girls. There, I was a model, photographer, writer, actress, and general deviant. Yup, that was me that you saw on Showtime in the middle of the night.

You can find me on Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter!
