Lazy Crazy Days of Summer





 
It's The Summer of Love... The Summer of being LOVED

Throughout my Spring posting, I was a fighting: “the-crazy-mixed-up-line-up” of collections that made no sense at all. This troubled world and the fashion world have been turned upside down.

                
Today, I am going for “The Summer of Love” and loving it all: full out. Discovering that every Fashion Magazine is sprinkled with humor, I suddenly realized that it's a: “nuts-o-fun” delightful page turner of a season. Hooray for lightening things up guys!

For starters: "Goldie's got it goin' on"!   A Happy  Summer of love BABE for sure!


        
Designers are embellishing embellishments. Trust me: ”enough” is just a tiny start. Ladies: fire up your engines and “get thee to the hobby shop and the fabric stores”. Pretend like you and your pals are at summer camp and step into your inner crafty kid with abandon. 
Glue jewels, ribbons, sequin decals, metals, feathers, huge school initials on any and all clothing and accessories. Being an artist has nothing to do with it. Born in 1943, the middle image is my crazy-n-creative attempt... not glued down yet!
                          
 Forgetting about the outcome... bedazzle some “sparkly-glitz”, sew vintage badges, double tape faux fur on to jeans, shoes, jackets, purses, jeans and even evening gowns. DON'T HOLD BACK! 

      
“Embellishment” is THEEE word for our Summer of Love. “Sequin Decals” is a good way start.

                             You'll spot images of these beauties on the web and in magazines. Oh and the color spectrum.... 
          it's a rainbow out there. If you can't erase it; embrace it. Why not twirl out of your 
conservative, safe winter shell and laugh along with the happy “summer of love” trend setters.

                             Chrissy Teigen , with the help of GUCCI  Summer 2017
                                        has it all figured out to exquisite  perfection.

                    
Mix and Match” is not happening this summer. Rather new mixes of colors, shapes and textures are showing up everywhere. Making a statement is an understatement. GO FOR IT! Bring your rainbow to the streets. Trust me, you'll leave a path of smiles.


                      
                                  There are even a few "out there " Summer school girls looks.
                                  I don't think that the model in the middle, got the "fun factor" message.


                         
Here are two classic styles with updated twists and attitudes. If a sewing machine is not your tool box or if it's retired, simply find a pattern and take it to an alterations expert. I found my guy, behind his sewing machine at my dry cleaners. Many experts work without patterns. WHY NOT TRY IT!





     I'm sort of missing the point of these two pages in a fashion magazine.  I'd say that maybe 
            it's the black and white photographs. I just find a bit more summer fun might work. 


               
Don't be afraid to try enchanting. Maybe start with a torn or stained favorite. YOU CAN DO THIS!


Blouses have fresh appeal. Combining ribbon with trim, lace with oxford cloth and a bra worn over
 a silk shirt. Hey who am I to question this crazy season. I'm just all smiles in this Summer of Love!


        

               
                            After seeing so many of these baroque pearls and stones enhanced
                               (yes I said enhanced) with semi precious jewels...I gave it a go.
  

Learn from the pros. Before you give an old “this or that” away, try painting or trimming it.                                                        WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOOSE!?!?!?

                           I love Reese... but sometimes the makeup and photo shopping
                             make the REAL person disappear....I want REESE BACK!



Even traditional comfy sandals are getting enhanced this season. "I'm good" holding off on the Summer of Love enhanced boots. They bring new meaning to: "break a leg". Thanks but no thanks. 


              
                            Here are a few of my WILD-N-CRAZY Summer Silhouettes!
                Yup, I'm out of control and loving my "Summer of Love". I hope you will too.

                     
  My wish for you is that you will let loose, try something new, because......
                             failing isn't an option. This isn't school time... it's a fun summer life... 
                            maybe even go fly a kite wearing something wonderful and outrageous.
