  I've been repurposing clothing since I could wield a pair of shears and thread a needle, and while my early ambitions as a young girl were noble and heartfelt,  I have since graduated to a more... well, tailored aesthetic.  That isn't to say that I don't still chop up pieces I have around to throw something together (Last week, I cut the lining out of a vintage black skirt and wore it sheer over a leather peplum onesie for a black tie event.  No one knew I had thrown it together last minute).  building a look for a special occasion is my favorite thing, and designing custom pieces has become my favorite hobby.  I had an event this summer in cannes & I had been sketching floating bodice gowns for months, and I feel like summer is really a perfect time to go light and sheer. It just really matched the South France seaside vibes in my mind,  so I decided to pair the beaded bodices with an ivory gown and a tulle ballet skirt.  I used a gorgeous silk charmeuse paired with a snow white beaded french lace for the gown and my favorite blush tulle with a nude lace for the cocktail.  It's such a fun hobby to have on the side, and I love to create pieces that compliment my jewelry and handbags.  I'm working on 2 gowns right now for some upcoming events & I can't wait to share them!    Anyway, enjoy the photos.  I think I'll pour a glass of rosé and reminiscence.
