Happy Fashion Friday! Fashion fact of the day: The trend for lace began circa 1540 in Europe, when lacework books became popular. Lace started out as an experiment with embroidery. Threads would be removed from woven cloth then covered with buttonhole stitches. It was a tedious process and made lace a sought after and luxurious fabric. #lace#thefashiondoctor#europe
Happy Fashion Friday! Fashion fact of the day: Let's talk about what may be the most common fabric in your closet now: polyester. Polyester is a category of polymers usually referring to polyethylene terephthalate (PET), the same stuff plastic bottles are made of! Maybe we should put our clothes in the recycling bin when we're done with them? Note: I'm wearing rayon in the pic. #thefashiondoctor#redwhiteandblue#polyester
“Let it GO!” That’s my mantra for the summer. I will admit that I can get very caught up in things that do not deserve my attention or things that simply just don’t matter. One of my best friend’s told me a while back, “Di, just let it go.” That’s hard for me because: 1) I’m a Taurus, 2) I’m a Taurus, and 3) I’m a Taurus ♉️ lol! I will fight/defend/go awf (😅) tirelessly and endlessly about my beliefs, my ideas, my character, my values, my family, and my friends. But, some things we just have to let go! Since, the universe shifted this week’s focus to Aura cleansing, what are some things you guys are working on this week?! And what do you do when you can’t seem to let something go? Ready, set, comment! _ Top: @mattebrand Joggers: @shopakira@champion . . . .
