Ingredients: Made in the USA. Born in sunny California, this skirt is made from a mixture of rayon, spandex, three weeks of studying pelicans in Mexico, gold flecked sand, nearly drowning, a watercolor pad, a bag full of black Faber Castell pens that dried out in the heat, and hours of drawing under a hot sun.
Wear: This skirt is a ladies fit with a wide waistband that can be folded down to shorten the length of the skirt or unfolded to transform it into a strapless dress. It also doubles as the perfect swimsuit cover up to toss on as you make your way across the hot sand to the beach margarita bar.
Heart: Machine washable (cold water please). Dry on low heat or let nature do the work of air drying it for you.
Wanderlust: Weightless on top of one world, sinking away from another. Tiny silver fish dancing across the surface of the water, hundreds of pelicans circling the air above me. The sun scorching my face. I float on my back waiting for the waves to consume me as I watch the pelicans dive into the sea. Their mighty force breaks the surface of the water with a thwap and, for a moment, they vanish below the surface. As they reappear, their pouches filled with fish and sea water, I lock eyes with one bird. She swims to me, beckoning me to follow her. I do. She stays a few feet in front of me, turning every so often to watch me with her dark eyes. We swim together- past the waves, past where I can see the shore, out to where the sea is calm. She gives me one last look then flies away, leaving me far from the safety of solid ground and all alone in the deep blue water.
By Hand: Due to the handmade nature of each item, variations are natural and should be expected.
