My New York fashion week gold and mermaid/petrolium peacock outfit

I wish! Just kidding,since I need something to cheer me up.I have a bad case of sewing- machine- attachment withdrawals.Due to it’s 220 V uncompatible-ness in US, I had to let this dear friend go,before me moved to Cali.So this outfit was in a way,it’s Swan song , before I heartlessly sold it to a stranger and  took cold hard cash (half price ) for it.I know.Harsh and heartless.It served me right all these years.And not a day went by without me using it(and cussing at it). I miss sewing soo much.But time will come…

As for time gone by, here is a blast form the past…

Velvet jacket-vintage.Originally I bought it as a long,heavy trench coat,but gave it the signature Easybreazy treatment-chop,crop,sew,re-sew and pimp,pimp,pimp it with a gold ornaments.The label on the jacket says made in West Germany, so it’s practically a piece of history (a real blast from the cold-war-era past), when Germany was divided by 2 parts-East and West Germany. And then there is The quality on that thing. UN-BE-LI-AVABLE! It really hurt when I had to defame it and cut all that heavy velvet with silk lining and perfect stitches…Whew!

The back side of the formerly trench coat became a ”mermaid tail” with lace.Or smocking jacket.Or something.

To complete the mermaid vibe,I added a petroleum sequinced collar to a black T with a slit in front.Petroleum bag-H&M.Vintage Ray Ban.Peacock hair piece.
Aand that was the” Gold-for-the-NY-cold-What-would-Easybreazy-wear” at NY fashion week look , haven I’ve been invited.
I play that game sometimes.Watching street photos from the Fashion week and think of the perfect,weather appropriate outfit.Dreaming…
Again-why wasn’t I invited?
