Hello My Fearless Fashion Stars,
I know I haven't posted any content in awhile. Honestly, I have not been motivated, however, during these challenging times we are faced with, it has forced me to focus on my business and fuel myself creatively. Since the pandemic, I have been getting back into my art and focusing on more things that make me happy.
I received a lot of questions about my outfit, that I wore to brunch with my good Judy's, whom I have not been able to spend much time with because we were quarantined. Those who know me, know I live for a good brunch. My friend Carlton was in town visiting from Texas, so that was a reason for me to get up, get dressed and show OFF!! Chile, I was so tired of being in the house. When she, me, I, Muvah arrived, they gagged over my Mickey Purse.
What if I told you it's not a purse at all. Hmmm??? Got you thinking now. You may have seen something similar last year on the runway in honor of Disney's 90th birthday. Gucci's Spring/ Summer 2019 collection. When I saw the bag, immediately I was in love....but when I saw how much it cost, I was not in love with the price. $4,500 ... Umm no ma'am.
Then it dawned on me. I remembered seeing a lunch box like this when I was a kid. It came with the thermos inside and everything. I then went on the hunt to find a vintage 1980s Aladdin lunch box and I scored. That's right people. What I am actually carrying is a lunch box and guess what??? I have two available for purchase in my Boutique. Follow @offthewallboutique to see how to purchase. Black vintage Aladdin Top handle coming soon
