I have decided to see if it would be worth it to do gigs on a semi full time basis to replace my long time ebay income. The fees from ebay are out of control and customers have no understanding anymore of the system. It just isn't what it used to be. Gigwalk is such a breeze and I have made as much as I usually make in a two week period on ebay in just 3 days, even less the 3% paypal takes I still will make more because ebay wont also be getting 9% of my $260. Gigwalk doesnt charge you anything to apply or to download the app. You can work anytime you want to and any day of the week. The past year I have noticed a serious decline in the amount of sales on ebay, and I began my ebay business because I just got tired of the 9-5 job. I started it as a way to make extra money and I did well so I continued. But the system has changed, and so has the customer base. I'm thankful gigwalk has come along because I dreaded the thought of having to go look for a regular job after three years of self employment. Gigwalk can help anyone make extra money or even replace a regular job if your serious about it. I plan to start some blog series about my gigwalk adventures. In just three days Ive discovered a lot of restaurants, and also some great photo opportunities for my instagram shots!

I had been planning on starting a spring "collection", and so far I have gotten a pair of shorts 85% finished and that's about it. I have been working on custom orders for a client as well as my ebay store which is daily upkeep. I really want to get away from that though and focus on my clothing line. Its slowly coming along.
I went to the mall today, and yes I guiltily bought a few new things. I suppose a girl deserves a few new things once in a while :) I also love to get inspiration. I went into Macys and there was a huge Lagerfeld for Impulse display at the front entrance. Seems like all the designers and stores want to do collaborations now. When will they really realize that people, that is REAL people (not the Kim Kardashian type, were talking more the really real housewives types. Not the New Jersey ones either) can't afford any of that designer stuff. We can't even afford it at Macy's prices.
But its ok, still they try. I do admit its tough to be "anti-fashion" when your a "fashion designer". Well you all know me, I'm not anti fashion, just anti-LABEL. Well anyway, I picked up this cute 80s inspired outfit today. Im loving the purple and cobalt blue I was seeing everywhere in stores. I also like that super bold teal (see the shirt hanging there on the wall?) Well I didn't buy that one but I love the color!

I just finished this really cool project for a client. Shes going to an 80s party and requested two NKOTB pieces. I did this really soft and sort of slinky square blouse with a wide neckline. I left the edges raw and serged them with hot pink thread. My idea behind it is sort of teen bop magazine. You remember as a girl you would cut out the pictures of your teen hearthrob and collage them all over the wall? I just love how it came out!
I also did a custom clutch witha brooch made from hand dyed croched lace. I used this florescent pink and black stripe for the lining, and gave it a keyfob strap.
You can find my items in my etsy shop, just click the link at the left. You can email me to request a custom item as well!!
