The BEST part of having your own clothing line is…. You never worry about what you have to wear all the time since 100% of the time, most samples of the products you design end up going to you. Which is why I know deep down that even if I stop shopping for a year and keep on designing, I will still have an abundance of new outfits to wear…and if I don’t, it might be a sign I need to be making more already!
Anyway, this is one of my MOST favorite pieces from our collection entitled HEROINE CHIC…thus the blog title. I have been so busy with orders etc. that I rarely have time to go online here and comment on all your fabulous photos…. It makes me so sad but I guess I find comfort in dressing up other people instead of just myself for a change.
The collection which you can view by clicking this LINK for Glitterati is inspired by fierce, mythical and modern women warriors from way back to the near future. Our look is very goddess-inspired with a twist which I have been addicted to since December 24,2009—-hint hint: that GOLD Midas Touch Grecian dress. Designing with one shoulder pieces is relatively so easy for gowns, formal wear, party clothes and cocktail dresses… but for a more corporate "everyday’ look, I think it’s more of a challenge…. We took on that challenge and came up with this… a tailored and very chic look women can so wear while conquering their modern day version of the battlefield…the workplace! My favorite part of this all is the belt…cause it totally adds an extra oomph to the look!
I wore this exactly how I styled it for our shoot and if you click on the next photo, you’ll see how identical my outfit looks from the catalogue shot displayed on our website. What can I say? I loved it too much I needed to wear it first before everyone else got to. Haha. Anyway, I wore this to a pretty casual chill session with corporate people more or less and for the first time ever (since I usually go to that place in shorts, tattered stockings and boots), I felt like I had something in common with those people! Haha.
Enough of that, I’ve been down with allergies for 4 days now and my back rashes and throat/ nose discomfort is reaching epic proportions. I think its the Spring bug that’s got me all acting up (pollen alert!) but everyone stay safe :D You know I love y’all! xx
