colour, paper, and paste
i was commissioned to make another collage of "the four blondes"
as my good friend likes to refer to herself and her three besties
this one is a birthday present for one of the girls
this time i channeled my sixties hippie memories of favourite outfits
well - a little of the seventies may have crept in...
i had a wrap skirt awfully similar to this one, and an indian cotton white blouse with embroidery and beads - honestly, i don't think you could have made it through the seventies without one!
never had red leather boots but wouldn't they have been smashing!?!
and these pants would be so much fun
my favourite pair were wide bell-bottomed, light blue denim, embroidered with an indian guru on the bottom outside of the leg....he was smoking a pipe and the smoke circled up and was intertwined with flowers all up the leg to about the knee
both legs were embroidered in the same manner and i absolutely adored those pants
i also had a pair of wide-legged striped pants in all the colours you see below - my mom made them for me and i always wore them with a brown turtleneck - always, always, always
and of course, a little chanel-inspired suit
the bag is made of a piece of carved ivory from a bracelet left to me by my grand-mother
not the diagonal quilted look chanel dictated, but my own twist on it
rose "quilted" bag
it's like playing with paper dolls but you're not limited by the clothes that came in the package
on the far right is a hippie mini-kaftan
i had a maxi and it was orange and brown and turquoise
my friend thinks i did something wonderful for her
but methinks she did something wonderful for me when she asked me if i would....
and you know that she is... some kind of wonderful
