Booze. Beards. Bowties.

Typically my dapper gentleman is either drinking cider with me, or whiskey by himself. He’s new to getting dressed up, but he asked me why I never make him bowties…. Well silly, you never asked me to.

Naturally that started a monster within myself.

I’ve got a million other projects to do before I leave for a month, but how could I resist?! I don’t get to play dress up with him enough… So I made 14 bowties..

Here are just a few.

Yes, they are one of a kind, made from repurposed materials, landfill friendly, locally made, ship worldwide and of course..

For Dapper Risk Takers Only.

Enjoy.

Upcycled Fashion and Transformations By Maria

I will write more later, but I wanted to share a new project that I am working on.

As some of you may know, I started out designing in 2008 by creating upcycled clothing. I was broke (still am), and needed new clothing for school/work/events with no way to buy new things. To top it off nothing fit. Many of my friends had given me clothing they weren’t wearing anymore, and I knew I needed to make it my own. No one likes hand me downs…. unless they are designer. At any rate I took those pieces, cut them up and refashioned garments that fit me and my style perfectly.

Many years later I have paired up with Transformations By Maria to take unwearable clothing, and turn it into local fashion art pieces. So here I am.

Here are some photos, I will do a follow up later regarding all of the amazing things Maria is doing.

Let me know what you think!
