A bellydancer, A snakecharmer...


So, I'm pretty excited about my most recent inspirations. I just started taking bellydance classes with my friend Jenn (you may recognize her from Say Ooh shoots), and I'm already OBSESSED! I'm getting to know new muscles in my body I never knew existed. I absolutely cannot wait until I can break out a shimmy on the street.. if you know me you know I love to dance. Aside from the actual dancing, I adore the bedlah. It's certainly going to influence some upcoming accessories & fashions. I'm already on the lookout for pearls, coins, mooooore lace and silk, etc. I had already been starting to layer my work more, and this is another step in that direction. Hopefully I can have some goodies together in the next couple months. If you live in Nashville and want to come to class with me, Thursday nights and Saturday afternoons!

Also, I have some great finds from an estate sale yesterday. I have been wanting a vintage trunk for as long as I can remember (10 years?) and finally found a beautiful one I could afford. As in, under $100. Photos soon. Today I googled: Rachel Brice.

I'm SO jealous of your bellydancing. I would love to join if it weren't for my general fear of dancing ( I swear I don't have even an ounce of rhythm in my body!!). I remember seeing belly dancers at one of the warehouse parties that were hosted by The Rabbit press. Amazing!!

And can't wait to see what your inspiration from bellydancing produces! xo

Kallie, it definitely requires rhythm, but if you ever want to try it out just let me know!
