Art, Fashion and Creativity
Hello everyone! This week I'm giving you a window into my life. These pictures are taken at my studio where I work and I've included some art to give you a flavor of what I do at my job. I just purchased this burgundy leather skirt (here) and I'm wearing it casually with several sweaters for this post. The picture below is a mechanical sculpture by Dean and me where a bird lands in the girl's hand, flowers bloom and she looks down in surprise. We have devoted our lives to the quest of capturing mystery and wonderment.
As those who follow my blog know, I adore accessories. I've been looking for a pair of riding boots this season and found these Tahari boots (same brand, similar here) while outlet shopping. They are leather in the front and stretch fabric on the back. I like that they fit snug to my leg and the fabric back makes them a bit cooler to wear.
Next spring I'm planning on wearing this skirt into the warmer weather. In the below pictures I've added some unusual accessories just for the creative challenge.
I have had these last two sweaters for years. This one is a Missoni piece (see collection) I purchased 25 years ago for 90% off retail before they became as well known here in the US as today. I thought it was a work of art in it's craftsmanship and pattern. The other sweater is from Anthropology (sweaters) and I just didn't have the right thing to wear with it until this skirt.
