alyssabird 's Thoughts:

I finally broke down and just made myself a high waisted black skirt. I think a black skirt (as well as a black dress) is a necessity to have in your closet. And I had been avoiding buying one because there’s always that little voice in the back of my head “Why buy it when I can make it?” which is usually the reason i refrain from buying anything at all. So a few weeks ago I dug up some extra fabric in my fabric box and made this.

So last Friday I sold my collection pieces at DNA Pop-Up Shop at Space Galley in San Francisco. It was kindof like a trunk show, lots of other designers and jewelry makers were there selling their work. There was even a DJ playing sick beats during the whole event, and an after party with band playing (but I was too tired to stay and left before the party). The best part of this story is that the girl who contacted me about working the event found me on Chictopia! How S.A.F. is that??

Black Licorice Skirt
-high waist
