Bromeliad: Inspired by photoreality

Two inspiring posted by Bromeliad

 Inspired by photoreality 

Photorealistic digital fabric prints have been hitting the runways for the past year or two and are starting to trickle down to retailers from Anthro to H&M and are also turning up in home decor.

I particularly like photoreal prints that reproduce nature with landscapes, ocean surf and florals.

Are you feeling photoreality?

A DIY challenge 


As discussed yesterday, things surfy and photorealistic are hot fashion items right now.

So my DIY challenge is to decide what to do with the image above, which comes to us via Walmart.

Alert fellow blogger Maya Griggs from
Soccer Mom Style came across Get a Life photoreal t-shirts at her local Walmart. Being a fellow fashionista, she immediately saw the high end DIY potential of these ridiculously cool shirts for $11.

Since they aren't available online, she kindly sent me one. I never got so excited about a t-shirt.

But what to do with it? Not as in a lack of ideas but as in
which idea. 


   I could just keep it as a t-shirt a la Marios. (A Marios shirt is $165 and out of stock to boot.)

I could make it it into a pencil skirt or a mini dress a la Suno.



 Or I could turn it into a pouch or clutch a la Jimmy Choo, Samudra or Dezco. 


Here we have Jimmy Choo's Surf Clutch, which was $795 but is sold out. (I swear it's the same surfer.)
