I HAVE TO MENTION THIS FIRST: I got an email from Kavita, the creative director over at The IOU Project informing me of what is coming at the end of this month...the launch of their site! I looked into it and got super excited from the little that has been released. check out their website and video at http://www.theiouproject.com/
What they have done here is brilliant. They are all about the unique pieces, and environmentally friendly production of clothing which is just my cup of tea. They work with weavers from India and collaborate with them which just made me salivate even more on the thought that each unique piece that is purchased and distributed will be hand woven by a sweet old man from India. enough, I need to calm down. So this is my over excited shout out to them and I cannot wait for the launch!
Back to where I am...in california. on my bed. wishing I was in India. Anyways, sometimes don't you get the urge to be all lavish and extravagant? To walk around in gold threaded coats and pretend like you are a queen? Don't lie, you know you get that urge. Well that urge could bear it no longer and my uncontrollable self burst out into society with the best opulent attire. I had to mix all my different shiny/glitter/metal-like pieces and mesh them all together. My skirt is unbelievable, its got this microscopic fringe type texture to it and all the tips of it are painted with silver. piece of art. Do I see an inspiration on different types of metals coming sooon!? Another obsession coming my wayyy. So I had to use my golds, my silvers, my bronzes and my lurex-s and this was the result:
