handmade love

I love handmade stuff; it's probably the closest I'll ever get to couture. they are one of a kind , and that's what I love most about them. nobody wants to walk around wearing uniforms, as it usually happens when you go buy stuff from chain stores. how many times have you seen lately someone sporting a clothing item or accessory you also have in your wardrobe? also, a good reason to buy handmade items is supporting the young artists who create them. they are very talented kids, mostly art students.
I have a lot of handmade accessories, mainly earrings, and now another piece has been added to my collection. my best friend Bogdana gave me  this awesome t-shirt for Christmas (thanks diva!). it was designed by some very talented art students and sold through the Hippy Hippy Shake store. I love the way the girls are drawn, they look taken straight out of a designer's sketchbook. I think one of the main reasons she chose this for me is my latest obsession with head pieces. I've been on the lookout for the perfect black widow veil for a long time now, and I won't stop until I find it. the t-shirt being the central piece of the outfit, I chose to pair it with black faux leather leggings and a long black cardigan so it would stand out more. pretty girls in little black/red dresses, what more can you ask for?

  2. Very nice t-shirt. I agree about original wear, I love to get stuff no one else has. This is why I used to sew my own things, but I've become lazy about that in my recent years.
