SKIRT: Blossom Brigade (custom) | T-SHIRT: Zara | SHOES: Lulu’s | BAG: Target | SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.
I’ve been designing a lot of new clothing pieces lately for my Etsy shop and for myself. I’ve decided that now is the time that I really want to start working toward having my own clothing label. I’ve had my shop (Blossom Brigade) for about 6 years now, but hardly ever add new items to it. Around 5-6 years ago I was making some progress but then I put it on the back burner when I moved to California because I wanted to pursue designing for a company. Now that I am thinking of leaving California soon-ish, I want to start that up again because it’s something I’ve always wanted and it seems like the right time. I don’t want to keep putting it off forever. After having worked as a designer for a company, I kind of realized that I definitely want to work for myself. It would mean so much to me if you follow my Instagram account @blossombrigade and like my Etsy shop. I’m hoping to someday turn my shop into my own website and make it an official brand. I really want to be able to bring unique but wearable pieces into existence that are more ethically made and for an affordable price. That’s the goal.
I am working on my Spring/Summer collection. A few pieces have already gone up for sale but I have a few more to create. This skirt was something I made for myself. I really want to sell something like this but I am having trouble finding this fabric again. I bought it a while ago. If you would be interested, I can do these skirts custom, with different fabric. Feel free to message me on Etsy. I made it for myself because I really wanted a basic midi/maxi skirt to dress up some of my more casual tops. I love this in-between skirt length. I think it is the most flattering and wearable. I wore it to this beautiful garden in Laguna Niguel and the beach today. It was a perfect day.
