DOPECIETY GETS DRESSY FOR SPRING/SUMMER!

(photos by Safa Hamidullah)

I’ve been working hard on these new spring items for weeks now and I’m glad that I get to show off a lil’ sneak peek of my favorite new thing! This is a prototype of the handmade (no two will be alike) jersey tee-shirt dresses I’ll be adding to the store very soon! They will be available for preorder to ship in May.

The fabric is custom made; the print was created from a series of seated masked nude watercolor paintings I did back in 2012. It’s a stretchy soft jersey that drapes nicely without being too clingy.

I laugh with my entire body.

My eyes tighten till they’re nearly shut. I feel my lips curl into my teeth and my cheeks puff out. My chest opens and my tummy flattens as air rushes through my body.

I love that my sis @alex_elle is always able to capture my laughter ❤️
