I hope you enjoy this ensemble I put together for the end of summer. The shirt is a Calvin Klein top which I hand-painted with this mysterious eye motif. It's available to purchase in my shop. I hope to keep making a few hand-painted unique pieces in the weeks to come.
One of my big focuses has come to be sustainable, reused and upcycled fashion. I don't completely bar myself from buying new, but I've cut down a lot in the name of responsible shopping. Also, it's become a passion of mine to search the racks at thrift stores for treasures. Going to a store where everything is gorgeous and new is no longer interesting to me! I like a challenge! So, my shirt, pants, and shoes for this look were all thrifted.
I like adding in pieces of my travels to my wardrobe. That way, they are also memories and not just off-the-rack purchases. This bag I bought in Amman, Jordan. It fits a surprising amount of stuff inside!
I assembled these sunglasses with a cut-apart necklace and a bit of glue. They make an instant statement.
