TrickORTreat! Halloween Sale!

Dearest friends,

 

It’s that time of year again…  When it’s normal to walk around with fake blood on your face and plastic vampire teeth in your mouth.  When fishnet stocking companies rake in the millions.  When fake tombstones take the place of plastic flamingos in your neighbor’s yard.

That’s right.  It’s the perfect time to start watching “A Nightmare before Christmas.” It’s…Halloween.

 

I love how on this holiday, we can rejoice together in our weirdness, and let go … Read the rest

Roadtripper Returns

(…Is this real-life?

Sometimes summertime makes me wonder…)

Hello, dear fellow dwellers of this earth planet, and WELCOME, to this over-due edition of Where in the World is ShockT Designs?!

I have just returned to home-base in St. Pete, FL, after a 4-week roadtrip/camping adventure that brought me through highways and backroads and big cities and small towns up and down the east coast, from Pinellas County to Lincolnville, Maine.  (The above photo was taken atop a mountain in Acadia

Fashion Design & Yoga

For me, being a yoga instructor is a form of self-expression that allows me to connect with others. I’ve learned more and more that teaching is itself an art form. My decision to become a designer was a calling that came from a similar place of my teaching, rather than a desire to enter the fashion industry. I wanted to connect with people, with those who hold similar values and views of life, and who want to find ways to … Read the rest

Black and Blue

This piece of art to wear is definitely one of my favorite items of Shock T trip art. Fashion art can be either simple or complex, and this piece of wearable art certainly shows the complex side of it. It was originally designed to be the image that was first seen by visitors to the Shock T website, until we re-thought the organization of the site. In fact, it was somewhat of a shame to have this, one of the … Read the rest

Yoga Half Moon

Indeed, we have another one of the yoga-esque designs from the Namaste line. If they weren’t so trendy and unique I’d be afraid that you were getting tired of them (I’m allowed to say that without sounding conceited because I am not the author of these hand-drawn designs). After all who can get tired of such fashion art?! Forgive my over the top excitement for Shock T, I’ve just had multiple cups of coffee. I digress…

Let’s get down to … Read the rest
