were in Miami, not only did we have the most bizarre trip (including too much saki, thick texas girls in matching fluorescent pink g strings and hustling boys with black eyes that say rock in roll to often-- it was such a less than zero kinda trip out) there was all that famous art deco architecture
all that elegance glamour and modernity. form and function. color and balance. when i went home i could not get any of it at all out of my head. i wanted something with the same vibrant quality but still more absurd and a comedy-- like most clothes i make.
mint green, easy and the black cotton with white diamond patterns just as easy. but i made a three layer tulle tutu for underneath and cut the left side of the outer skirt up so the tutu is part of the hem.
which is ridiculous but i love this dress. though i never wear it on any dates, it does make its appearance when i go out dancing with the kicks. and i am obsessed with tutus (apparently) which may be because i love ballet and the dancer's form, but mostly because i like things super short. and girls are flowers. it's true. baudelaire knew that too.
