what's inspiring me, what's occupying me:
i could give a crap if dresses over jeans are "in" or "out". such things are irrelevant to me. i love the easy, relaxed, wrinkled look worn by this japanese gal. everything is perfect: the voluminousness of her dress, the tears on her jeans, the beachy, faded vintage necklace, everything.
some old sketches. more ruffles. you can see my notes about inspirations stenciled to the side: afro-centrism (the beauty of people of african origin and their style), the 18th century, the sixties and seventies, and the ruffles themselves. these frocks might be interesting in busy, african fabric, i'm thinking. i'm STILL waiting on my sewing machine and tools...*sigh*
thinking about how i'm actually in california. sometimes i feel as if i moved to another planet, or at least another country. still trying to figure out what i want to do and how i want to do it, and how that will work in this golden state. where i stand and how i'll fit in or stand out.
