Buying dresses with the exact colors, size and fabric is amazing. It’s super fun to never having to leave my house to go dress shopping. I love this style of dress, a bit loose depending on size, the fabric is the perfect weight, cute side slit and no ironing needed. When I packed for my trip to Madrid last summer, my carry-on bag had 6 dresses, matching Pashmina scarves, 3 pairs of shoes with room to spare and that was just on one side!
This lovely swirls pattern was inspired by one of my DNA Ancestry test results of Estonia whose flag colors are black, blue and white.
PS. I’m so excited that my newly designed bandanas arrved today, including one to match my dress above.
My first time wearing my newly designed Blue, Yellow and White Paint Splashes, side slit dress was while attending one of my granddaughter’s 6th, Unicorn Birthday Party held at a horse farm in Pembroke, MA.
Due to medical issues, it was touch and go right up to the day of the day of the party if I would even be able to attend so I decided to wear something pretty without my favorite black accent color. The colors were perfectly printed on fabric that was just the right weight, no slip needed. Also, at my age, I prefer long dresses, however, you can also cut and hem it a bit shorter if you like to adjust the length.
I enjoy buying my own graphic printed dress designs on Artsadd. My only “complaint” is that items are shipped from China which takes about 3 weeks to arrive, unless you upgrade to expedited shipping, otherwise, the pricing, the printing and items I’ve ordered are wonderful.
Saturday was day four of my son’s 22nd birthday trip to Madrid. Unfortunately for me, it was a very bad day medically. My son also decided to stay in and nap due to some jet lag. Magically, around 3:00pm, I began to feel better and chose to wear my easy wear, earth toned Gray and Pink Granite designed side slit dress as we decided we’d venture out for a bit.
I packed plenty of my sleeveless dress designs knowing that even though visiting Madrid in August was hot as expected, it was a hot heat vs humid. We were glad to feel gentle breezes under the many shady trees and thankfully countless benches to sit throughout this expansive and lovely sandy retreat.
Tip for the ladies – the vast majority of the park is sandy with some paved sidewalks, wear comfortable flat shoes that you can easily clean.
Back in 2010, my youngest child was a 14 year old teenager who enjoyed sketching, drawing and goth. He actually agreed to my suggestion of letting me post one of his selections online. I chose this one of his skull, modified it into 2 additional sizes and then as one basic template of three skulls. To say it remains a popular selling item to this day is pleasantly pleasing for him as a conversation starter with his friends and our family.
Below are four shops with his Skull Boys fashion and home decor items. Great items appropriate for Halloween events and Goth occasions.
Black is my favorite go to wardrobe color. However my adult children have asked if I could also wear the many other shades in the spectrum, so as a nod to them, 75% of my Art Khoncepts designs now incorporate black along with all of the other hues represented in this fabulous abstract printed umbrella.
AND I’ve personally ordered the matching dress and tunic hoodiefor myself. They can be paired with a multitude of boots, shoes or sandals.

Umbrellas are a wonderfully inexpensive way to bring a bit of color on a rainy or snowy day. The umbrellas come in three sizes, the smallest fits in your purse or backpack. Pair it with a matching travel mug!
I absolutely love the way #kornitka (formerly on polyvore) used my Jamaican inspired striped T-shirt in her stylish fashion set. Click the collage to see it on Polyvore! or click the shirt to purchase it from my Artsadd shop. Wow, it’s a perfect spring outfit!
