Day 91 and 92: I took an old dress that I had stopped wearing and re-created it into something fun. I enjoy redesigning clothes because I hold onto clothes sometimes thinking that I will wear them again, but there are certain items that I never do. Then there comes a point when I finally decide that I either have to give it away or transform it. Either one feels great, because who really needs neglected clothes lurking in their closet? This project has inspired me to finish going through my clothes that I never wear with the intention of either transforming them or giving them away. Wouldn't it be nice only to have clothes that you actually wear?
Day 94: I did a collage in my "dream book," which is also becoming a place where I put poems, images that inspire me, and things that I think about. I saved the cover of a Bitch magazine that I loved (by the way, the reason it's called "Bitch" is because it is a statement against times when women get called "bitch" just for speaking their truth, it has nothing really to do with being a mean, hateful woman). I kept the name of the magazine in the collage because it is a reflection of myself and my opinion on how women are sometimes treated in this crazy world of ours. I absolutely loved the recycled magazine paper dress on the cover. Trash fashion is very fascinating to me, because fashion itself is such a fleeting, changing ideal that women chase after, and I like that the trash really emphasizes the temporary state of it, and also the impracticality of it. On the note of fashion, I added a woman wearing a bird and a little girl being wild in her "little lady" attire.
