Second thoughts...



This dress was inspired by Prince music ("Alphabet Street") a long time ago. I only wore it once or twice, with a purple turtleneck beneath it. The stripes are irregular, and the fabric is challis-like.

I used to play music for inspiration, and most things I made for about 5 years were done to music by Stevie Wonder, Bobby McFerrin, Eryka Badu, Roberta Flack, and Dave Matthews.

Okay, I have to be strong... almost all of my Prince Albums on Ebay have bids and many watchers. Funny how letting go of a piece of my history (I didn't even realize I still had, mind you) makes my stomach do flips. But hey, I know I have no intentions of buying a record player, I wouldn't play any of this with my children around, and I just feel an incredible need to de-stuff...

Can anyone relate?

  1. I'm totally with you on the need to de-stuff! I'm working at it, bit by bit, but it's also hard to find the time to look through all those boxes, some of which haven't been opened in *years!* You'll feel so light as you pop those records in the mail ;-)

  2. Okay- immediately "party till it's 1999" come to mind, or "Raspberry beret"... mmmmm.. still like Little Red Corvette- okay, so we love Prince- so of course we love your inspired dress too! Bless you for sharing your albums- many others can now be inspired as well!

    blessings,

  3. And share them, I did! All but one sold on Ebay, for quite a bit more than I thought... Scary, but good.
