where are the themes?

in case you are wondering why i haven't done any new themed work, it cause i am trying to use up fabric that i have! i have tons of vintage fabrics that are only enough to make one item. so for the time being im going to use up what i have! have no fear i will still make really cute things, and will return to my themed work once i have used up all i can.

Quality vs Quantity

ok so im going to bitch a fit for a min. i want to talk about how i feel about some of the reaction i got toward the price of my clothing. my general price range is 40-60 for one of a kind items that i put a lot of time into. i was a vendor at pitchfork this weekend and i over herd allot of conversations about how the price was too much. 60 dollars for a dress that one of a kind, vintage fabric with boning and lining? really? too much? have people become so accustom to getting there h & m, wear a few times and toss cause i bought it for $12 clothing. im not a sweat shop! it takes me hrs to make something! ME!!!! all by myself. i work a 9-5 come home at 6 and put hrs into my clothing cause i want people to have cute things. but these cute things come with a price! i try and find deals where i can to cut the cost as much as possible! but i can only go so low on a price before im not getting anything back for it! if anyone is reading this blog, when you go to craft fairs your getting one of a kind items. no one else on the planet is going to own. yes it is worth paying a bit more for for a quality item then a top that is mass produced shipped all over the world and you and about 1000 other people on the planet own it!

the big dilemma!

Hello and welcome to my blog! This is my first blog for my website which is being launched in the next day or so. You may have noticed that i go by both gypsy love fashions and gypsy love fashion! this is not a typo!!! This is actually something i have gone back and forth on since i started my clothing line. My thought process on this was each article of clothing is one piece of fashion. It is also my name like Louis Vuitton! It is the fashion of Gypsy Love. However it is a collection of pieces and more then one, so as a whole it is fashions! Oh the dilemma! All of my tags up till this point just have fashion and i am not sure i should switch? I don't know what do you think?
