As I briefly mentioned on Instagram yesterday, I have some pretty cool news for you! *Dances and prances with excitement! Well, I've been wrapping my head around this one for a minute. It's pretty crazy when you get a really dope idea and begin to scheme around the various ways in which you could make it happen. This was me for the past month or two, nailing it all down in order to share this with you!
Quick rewind to summer '16 (as if it happened ages ago lol). There was an open market close to my apartment where I spotted a number of customized jackets under one of the seller's tents. Each jacket read, 'Bye Felicia'. Cute. But what if I could do something similar? What if I custimized a few denim jackets and hand painted words, phrases, and expressions on them, which encompassed my feelings and emotions towards certain life situations? "Oh man, I must be up to something!" - I thought.
Well, ladies and gentleman... I give you Teenage Angst Custom Wear, my very own custom apparel Etsy shop and the result of endless brainstorming, plus the need to vent and share all these feels with the world. Lols. But why 'Teenage Angst'? 'Cause I firmly believe we ALL have an angsty teenager inside of us who yearns to voice out his/her thoughts on existentialism, growing up, and paying rent (among other things). Seriously.
As for today's outfit, I'm featuring my newest customized denim jacket creation which is up on the TACW Etsy store! I manually distressed the fabric, bleached washed a few sections, added a unicorn patch on the front left side of the jacket, and wrote in bold, bright, and white fabric paint - "I Don't Care". Lovely, isn't it? I've also considered having the option of providing a denim customization service through the store. Think, you're an interested customer, you ship me your denim jacket, shirt, purse, pants, you name it, and I'll customize it for you! The idea is still in the works but I can guarantee I'll be making more customized pieces and stocking up the TACW store very, very soon!
