joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

As a kid, my diet basically consisted of three things- cookies, chocolates and candies. Basically, like any sugar rush fanatic little girl, I thought dessert was the whole point of any meal. Candy shops for me then was HEAVEN. But then I got older and allergic to all those things that was my daily fix of food. It’s hard to not be able to eat all those sweet treats and it took me a lot of crying sprees, allergy tests and pounds off to get over my obsession with sweets. So far, after 5 years of not eating candies and chocolates… I’m still not over it. And what I can’t eat, I can wear. Right?

The main inspiration for the dress was one of my favorite candies of all time- NERDS. The print is very much alive and happening…it reminds me of fireworks and of course my favorite gummy treats from the Candy store. I found several rainbow prints like this which is what Nina and I played with in our Good Girls Go Bad line for GLITTERATI… Kiddie and playful prints with a heavy metal bad ass edge. For this dress, the metallic zipper hardware provides that edge. Totally took out that sweetness for an overall sugar and spice piece. I LOVE IT and one of the people who modeled the same dress in a fashion show sponsored by Glitterati loved it so much…she texted me to tell me she’s getting it on the spot. I totally love that she did.

This is still unreleased but we will be displaying a select few pieces (and we mean it when we say FEW) that are new and fresh out of the lineup. Also, we’ll be showing hardcore studded grommeted belts which will give biker chicks a run for their money! Good girls go BAD indeed!

To get this dress and other hot off the press pieces before everyone else does, I have three words- ROCKWELL URBAN BAZAAR! See you guys at the bazaar which runs on August 28-30,2009/ Friday until Sunday. We’ll be having our own booth so visit us there and we’ll make sure not to disappoint. Nina and I will be manning the booth and we are dying to meet our beloved clients and supporters!!! I’m so psyched for it! I swear!

Here’s to the sweet life! Cotton candy dreams, Chictopians! xx

PS: Life with plastic is fantastic. We accept credit cards which is every shopaholic’s dream come true! Haha xx
