PURCHASED/My effort this week is entitled "Multicultural Mashup with Hippie Skirts"
I have a lot of long flowy Indian skirts that I can't stop myself from purchasing whenever I rendezvous in Artesia (AKA Little India) with my friend Deborah. It's all Deborah's fault! I've decided that they overwhelm me and work better if they're hiked up and worn as dresses. Also, I can't wear long skirts at work because I'll trip on the stairs in and roll my chair on them.
I decided to experiment mixing the skirt-dresses with tops from different countries [for the prompt] through the filter of selfies to see what worked. Looking at a photograph often works better for me than the mirror.
First I tried an African fish tunic combo:
|no. too much fabric and side seams wonky|
|I look like a giant baby. Or a Cabbage Patch Kid. Nooooooo!|
It was 90º in Claremont at the "All U Can Eat" show. (20º hotter than at home).
This outfit was comfortable.
I sold 2 out of 3 pieces! (You can see them here). Yay me! I then bought two paintings to take back to my lair.
Here I am with Anne Seltzer. I bought her piece, she bought mine.
Linking up with Patti's last Visible Monday for the summer.
Can you create an international cocktail from your closet?
Link and tell!
