Day 2 of the Bazaar in the SEVERE heat of The Rockwell Grove was extremely fun despite the sauna bikram vibe. I’ve been manning the filling station booth with my friends which is why I am basking in the summer sun. So far, it has been a super successful exhilirating experience and I am quite sad it’ll be over tomorrow. It was ULTIMATELY a perfect way to cap off our summer season. I’m sooooo excited for our next collection! I have the samples and prototypes with me already and I am dying from happiness with how it’s turning out!
Since I knew just how HOT/HAUTE/HOT things can get, I decided to wear a tube minidress made of animal print chiffon which is very towel-like since I did not get as sweaty as opposed to yesterday’s tutu and linen blouse combo. Accessorized with my lady Gagaesque sunnies (my ultimate summer staple!), and then basically studded all the way. I am all about extreme contrasts which is why I opted for a more grommeted look as opposed to the boho vibe most animal print dresses are styled with. It’s like making over the Flintstones with punk rock. I must say, personally, studded anything is the best accessory ornament invented…EVER.
Title for the blog is the song of Phoenix entitled LISZTOMANIA, which served inspiration for the day. My friend, Christian Acuna who is a great videographer, made a video of our behind the scenes moments from our summer shoot for Born to be Wild and this was the song he used. The video is sooooooo amazing, I practically DIED when i saw it. It’s the best ever and it makes my job with my business partner and BFF, Nina seems so glamorous and fun. Click HERE to view it!
