Around the Museum

Adept to artistic recreation, I wrenched this blue button-down from the retirement section of my closet… evidently, I’ve been on some sort of 007 sewing safari.
Sated with a neo-trashy romanticism, its charming DIY imperfection materialized this impromptu photo excursion, even though I should have been working.
But from the sun-drenched corners of a museum shop, I rubbed out the shadows of a recent stress purgatory, as the city voice seemed a tangible reawakening.
Shirt, DIY (Meadham Kirchhoff inspiration). Satin tap pants, Victoria’s Secret. Bangles, vintage. Heels, N.Y.L.A.

Your concept of "neo trashy romanticism" is as (wrongly ?) paradoxical as (really) interesting, Mmmmh OR the Dark(AND sulfurous) side of the "on the way of Sofia Coppola's creations" sylph who slumbers in any fashionista ? Mystery . . .
