….or individuality or uniqueness or originality or whatever you want to call it. Here’s an interesting article that describes yet another loss of our current retail marketing.
It’s a good read, and got me to thinking how lucky I am that I’m able to express myself so easily. I love sewing and love creating. Well, that’s better put that I need to create. A by-product of that has been my individual style. I like to think that I’m sort of artistically Bohemian in a Chanel sort of way!
I get wonderful serendipitous looks when fabrics are stacked or draped here and there. – this scarf and pants were this case and after I had draped them close to each other, couldn’t wait to make it up.
Same fabric as the leggings above. I loved this, but the truth is that wearing the leggings and the top together would be too much and way too busy for my small stature.
Finding Spoonflower.com was like some sort of giant gorgeous candy store, and these knit pants are a result of my family tartan in a knit. This is a great holiday outfit for me and so comfy for holiday dinners.
When I want something a little dressier, nothing better than my silk leggings(left leg side) or lace leggings (right leg side)
Truly nothing’s more fun than playing with prints and stripes and different geometrics to coordinate amazingly well. Here is a selection from Marcy Tilton’s knits on her site – marcytilton.com. It’s fun to get her “cool combos” because she can match the greys and the different shades of fabric so that they tone beautifully.
And even the classic white shirt top with leggings takes on a whole new feel. This particular version has drawing with a Tee Juice Fineliner. It’s amazingly durable (the shirt above has been washed in bleach and still no fading of the black lines).
Being creative doesn’t mean you have to orbit Mars like Vivian Westwood (it’s a style that works for her). It just means you can look like yourself – and we are all one in a million.
