Posts Tagged ‘fanny pack’

American artist Robin Barcus Slonina latest project is making a dress sculpture for all 50 states. The first of the bunch are New York ( trash bag dress (I can’t forgive her for that!)), Nevada (casino chips dress -sounds about right although, I’d add a fannypack to make it pop), Maine, (pinecone dress (imagine the little bugs crawling!) and Wyoming (willow dress- which should have been NY, because it could look like the bodies floating in the Hudson River after a mafia spat). I threw in the rest of the photos of her work like a feather duster dress (I would totally dust the house wearing that), beachball dress ( from the 99 cent store aka “that store with a lot of typos and effed up cheap stuff “), and sponge dress ( are you sponge worthy?). Check out her blog for more everyday crap turned couture.

Unicorns- I looove them! & It's so Flufffeehh! necklaces by I'm Your Present *

FancyPack by CarrotCake

On my last trip to Rhode Island, I went to the Indie Arts Festival in Providence one Saturday afternoon. It was like a flashback to the late 90’s for me. There was a rave in a tunnel underneath the street, some gritty bands, (some cool ones, too), vendors serving junk food (YUM!) and some damn good vintage clothes and jewelry shopping! Seriously, it was like every cool store in Providence condensed into one venue. Pretty damn convenient, if you ask me. I came across an AWESOME  Persian cat necklace and unicorn necklace at  I’m Your Present . They love cats as much as do. I love when I meet like-minded people. I also ran into an old friend, Desiree from Desiree Doll. She makes cute, little one-of-a-kind dresses and accessories. Desiree introduced me to a really cool fannypack. It’s called the Fancypack because it’s in the shape of a bow! It’s by Carrotcake and is available in a slew of colors and fabrics. As I had mentioned in earlier posts, bows are like kryptonite to me, so naturally I ordered one in a Barbie pink. So if you see a crazy red -headed lady covered in bows and a Persian cat necklace pushing a stroller, don’t be frightened, it’s only me.  Anyway, if you ever make your way down to Rhode Island be sure to check out The Curatorium on Wickendon Street. They have the coolest useless stuff. Like, it’s stuff you don’t need but want. Nothing wrong with that. But if you don’t make it out to the smallest state in the union, you can always shop at all of the stores’ Etsy  shops and websites.
