So Friday I went to my very first art event and I was very blessed to have my necklaces at the event. Since it was just before my Birthday I wanted to treat myself to something. Since I can’t afford shoes I decided to make the dress I have been dreaming of since June. This dress was it. Since school was out for a very extended weekend due to Thanksgiving. I had time to make me this dress. I still have some tweaking a and finishing work to do but it is such a soft silk. I love the luxe feel.And it was perfect to wear to my first art event
My necklaces displayed @ the art show.
I really had a fun time at the art event I met up with my friend Sam who I haven’t seen in such a long while. We hung out and talked and met new people and saw a fashion show, with a burlesque flavor. I met the artist behind the fashion show Frank Strunk III. He makes his garments out of of metal and they are truly works of art. I really love the corsets and corset belts he designs and makes I would love to wear one with silk of course. Check out his website here.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend !!!!!
Love you =),
wearing: Silk dress I designed and made me for myself for my birthday using a recycled mens shirt, self designed turquoise fringe necklace with a vintage necklace on top, self designed clutch,faux coral ring from the Folk Fair and Gianni Binni shoes.
p.s I remember several years ago contemplating the idea of only wearing clothes I design and make. Then deciding that I never could. I love shopping way too much too only wear the clothes I make. Though it was fun to wear an outfit that I designed and made a majority of. I could never do it all of the time.
