Madison's Bday

Our calendar year tells us that the new year kicks off on January 1st but I never get that new year feeling until the spring. Actually, most of our ancestors (and some cultures today) believe that the vernal equinox is the start of the new year. The vernal equinox, or the first day of spring, signifies a time of renewal and the beginning of the agricultural season for some, so for me it seems like a very suitable time for beginning another year.

Think about it: flowers are in bloom, the birds are chirping, and its time to wear bright colors! I try to keep it as funky fresh as possible in the winter months but nothing says spring like the first touch of neon. When my friend Madison hit me up to make an outfit for her 24th birthday, which just so happened to coincide with the first day of spring, I knew we had to go full throttle!

As my first custom spring look of the season, I created a neon pink power ranger meets biker girl look for Madi. The jumpsuit, with leatherette sleeve to accent the black metal ankle zippers, appears to have triangle side cut-outs when viewed from the front. But from the back, you can see that the bodice is cropped and accented with a black metal zipper. The high-waisted fit is the perfect complement for the harem pants.

Madison’s birthday outfit was a great way for me to kick off the spring season with speed… and I’m just getting started up (vroom vroom)!
