Inside My Closet - Retro Green Pants

Inside My Closet - Retro Green Pants

March 27, 2018

While visiting New York in February, I visited Encore Consignment Boutique on Madison avenue where I found an incredible pair of retro coloured bright green pants. On this ‘Inside my closet’ feature, I’d like to share this find with you, and talk a little bit about dressing for self expression, rather than approval.

My partner introduced me to Encore’s incredibly cute boutique the first time I went to New York awhile back, and on this recent work trip I thought I’d make time for a quick visit and browse. I’m so glad I did. What I love about these pants are the fit, the quality, and their originality. Made out of a cotton wool combination, they’re incredibly comfortable. They were also really reasonably priced. Walking down the street, I feel pretty confident that no one else is going to have an item like these on.

I’ve worn them to a few of my recent markets, but what I really love about them isn’t any external reaction I may get, but how they make me feel. Here’s what I believe about fashion – fashion is the way we communicate to the world who we are, and how we’re feeling. My choices in fashion reflect who I am and what I believe in/ who I support (that’s why I stay away from fast fashion). 

When I’m feeling playful or bold, what I wear will probably reflect that… which is definitely how I’m feeling right now.

It’s been an incredible year so far, and currently I’m in Quebec for a wholesale show to share some of my ethical, handmade jewelry with a brand new audience. In the area? Come by the Devi stall at the Quebec Expo and say hi. I’d love to meet you and hear your fashion stories.

A question artists get a lot is ‘where do you get your ideas?’ It can be a difficult question to answer because they probably don’t know. I know I don’t really know, but I have come to appreciate what makes me feel alive; what puts me in the mood for creative play.
