Creative wise, I've been bouncing back and forth between the tropics and the Southwest. I'm not sure what has got me so perpetually fascinated with both aesthetics (I've never ever been interested in either). I thought by now I'd have been over it and on to some other flavor but it's been a while without any ebb... soooo I'm allowing myself to be guided by these two genres, both in my personal sewing projects as well as in my closet.
I've been itching to wear something, anything with a novel, vintage-like print - maybe a children's print with animals (ideally tropical) so I was ecstatic when I came across this particular print during a routine fabric run. I grabbed it up and decided to make a pair of classic high-waist pants. A cute novel print worn a bit more formal. Juxtaposition is always fun in fashion.
These photos of the print and pants aren't very clear, I know. I think for this post though, I just wanted to show the mood rather than be completely literal. You'll get to see these pants more closely later on in the season for sure (this is, after all, The Tiny Closet and I'll be putting these pants with everything I own!) but for now, I simply want to enjoy this Winter's inspirations. It's all about grainy colors, deep shadows and faded happy prints. Happy Monday :)
