In My Imaginary Closet: Spring 2014 Edition

imaginary-closet-spring2014

I’m a undoubtably a creature of habit, but lately I’ve been doing a little branching out in the fashion department…and it feels good! My usual solid black wardrobe is slowly being studded with bits of pattern and even tiny hints of color (gasp), and it no longer looks like a sea of inky black when I open my dresser drawers. I chalk this change up to the warmer weather (I’ll probably revert back to my old ways when the season turns chilly again), but whatever the cause, I’m having fun with this newly discovered interest. Now if only I could get my bank account onboard. Alas, this is not to be, so for today I’m simply dreaming of the pieces I would acquire if only I could. Have you been pining over anything special in your imaginary closet lately? Let’s help each other keep the dream alive, shall we! xo Ez

Over the weekend I came across an artist on instagram whose work made my jaw drop. Enter the imaginative world of Red Hong Yi! She creates her playful art pieces using unconventional materials, such as food, flowers, chopsticks, and more. Amazing, right?!
