purple people

I ended up walking 4 miles yesterday (which I probably do a whole lot more of in NY) and hopped over to the Salvation Army for a little tete-a-tete with the racks. I picked, sorted, snubbed and loved a few pieces but when it came down to it I just stuck to the ones that really screamed 'TINAAAA'. And so the register rang. I managed to take home 2 silk tops, an oversized military button down, 2 pairs of silk slacks and, printed shorts and a crazy looking oversized blazer...oh and 2 dead watches. Yeessss.

So with all of this I really wanted to start working on building items for my future store. With all good and productive intentions I decided the purple slacks indeed needed a change. They are now shorts! I'm always inspired by the swishy, silky shorts and pants specifically used in Dries Van Noten's runway lines and I just felt like every girl wants a pair of swish and soft semi-formal shorts in their wardrobe.

I'm still working on hemming the raw edges and shortening them a bit, here's a sneak peak at some of what I have done today:

More to come!
