April 2014 Halftees n Chloe + Isabel

 

Pearl Crystal Drops Neclace

Pearl Crystal Drops Neclace

 

A friend noticed my outfit at a “Dance the Wave” weekly dance and she expressed her regret that she was staying out on a farm and therefore didn’t have any cute getups with her. Funny.  If I were staying out on a farm, my lace, chiffon, jewelry, leggings, more jewelry, more leggings, yoga pants, halftees, silver skirts (yes plural) and maybe a PAIR OF JEANS would be right out there with me.  But then I’ve been caught gardening in white.

I CAN put on a paint shirt when I paint but I normally don’t.  However I might start.  BUT, for me, what I wear is always important, farm and home, here and there, by myself or out and about. And I could philosophize about that. I do think we have an aesthetic responsibility to each other!

Halftees for Layering

Wouldn’t it be lovely to see beautiful clothes every day? Wouldn’t it be fascinating to give each other visual charm at any hour, in any locale? Not to impose my views on others, but just to revel in color and fabric and extend my own love of artful fashion out into the environment, especially given i live in Fairfield, Iowa and NOT New York city or San Francisco. Think of India. Women decorate themselves to go buy mangos and zucchini. I love that. There’s never a moment when our appearance isn’t potentially healing, surprising, nourishing and uplifting for others and ourselves. It’s a way of life.

So here’s my new halftees from halftees.com and they are a VERY useful item in the closet because they layer. I’m always wanting a tight layer under my tee, shrug, tank, kirta, tunic, etc. almost always. And I’ve been living in leotards for years, for that reason, but leotards are not the easiest layer to undo at certain times throughout the day. the Halftee or crop top is ideal. they do well with wrap pants and other high-waisted pants that look bad with a long shirt. Its kind of like Indian designs but Western.

 

 

We have the choli remade in the halftee. Westernized and revisited, just as Pyramid Collection’s long leggings refer back to the Indian “chudidar” legging with those wrinkles at the ankle. In their Western incarnation these Indian “pajama” pants are not stretchy, and have an elastic waistband instead of a drawstring and 2 yards of extra material floating at the waist! India now too is redesigning these leggings. I love the Indian look remade with the sleekness and funkiness of today’s fashion.

Artwalk this month was extra fun. Cielle said i should die my own hair pink. Anne Clifford didn’t. Noone didn’t recognize me for some reason. It IS amazing what changes a wig can make.

October Outfits with Wendy Stegall

Stopped by the store in their skirt.

My big Walmart shirt that was in the PLUS section but that I couldn’t resist because of the Indian design and the colors, works well when tied up. I also used this on my bollywood dance dvd cover. The skirt is from Fairfield’s Infinite OM store. I love the store and I love visiting with Savannah the store manager. Fairfield now has three Indian ish stores.

It was cute with the leggings but the knees wrinkled so you don't get to see the whole thing.

Pyramid Collection and Venus and the Dancing Shiva


Oh When will my Venus order come? Oh and there are red fishnet stockings under wraps.

Wrap pants made by me, based on a free pattern I found on Etsy.

And now we offer our love of colors to Lord Shiva – I seem to have the same colors in my garden as in my outfits.

Picked flowers in front of the Shiva in my dining/dance room.

My Pyramid Collection order arrived! I finally ordered the Blue hoodie I’ve been wanting for at least a couple of years. This hoodies is SO soft. I love how Pyramid Collection clothes are so dedicated to a look, to a certain overall style.

Blue Hoodie from Pyramid Collecton

Not all their clothes are “me” but I appreciate their flavor. I suppose you could say most catalogs have a certain style, but to me Pyramid has really zeroed in on a certain channel: Gothic, flowing, lace, bell sleeves, New Age, Tantric “toys” catering to a sort of metaphysical Bohemian Femme Fatale a la Enlightenment and Crystals. When I look at their catalog I get excited about doing a line of clothes that reflects my own taste. Or just about being true to one’s own aesthetic. To go into business you have to have both vision and a product people want. For me, being more of an artist than a business person, my own aesthetic would trump the market research aspect. I think that can work if the timing is right and you are lined up with your own mission. Venus clothes also have that discernible style coherence. The clothes endorse femininity and dignified sexuality. I like that. And I DID get my Venus order, but you’ll have to wait to see those clothes. Next time!

Daily Outfits May – 2

Started with a simple sundress, from Goodwill I think. black n blue on bed1

black n blue in the bedroom

Below: White lace and a natural crochet skirt from Body Central. I cut out the beige liner so white would show thru. I look better in white than beige. But you can’t dye natural cotton apparently, so I’m still working on this one. I actually painted the whole thing with white fabric paint (don’t tell Body Central) and it didn’t take stick at all. .
