I remember the year I was introduced to the Bonnaroo Music Festival at the ripe age of 18. I set out with some friends only equipped with my emergency information, bathing suit, Chuck Taylors and a great book. Ill-prepared for the adventure I was thankfully mystified by the sounds of Radiohead, Beck, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Sonic Youth; the lineup was outrageous. I couldn't imagine I'd enjoy Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, Cat Power and the Avett Brothers on a farm in Manchester, Tennessee. There are tons of vendors so it was a hard time figuring out which shirt to buy, cut & sew. I settled for this tee, turned it into a great tank.
After a Bonnaroo hiatus due to lack of posse down to endure it again and crappy lineups until a year I had no dough to attend anyway, I returned with my other half Daniel Williams. The bands were phenomenal and the company was even better. I found great neighbors to grill, chill, and craft torn tee shirts. I bought an extra large 'mess-up' from a passerby and turned it into a great sundress for this year's show.

Feathers have always been a staple in fashion, whether the classy Audrey Hepburn or the flashy Madonna. Worn by icons and drag queens alike for comedic relief and couture fashion feathers are one of my favorite mediums. After glittering a few I crafted some accessories to add a pop of color to any outfit.

This adorable jumper is made for a my friend's daughter. The American Apparel tee-shirt goes well with the hounds tooth wrap-around belt. Merchline printed some quality tees and a tiny, extra small one landed in my possession. A few hours of cut & sew, lace, pink bows and a fashion belt complete the Joonie Jumper. The biggest little fan of a great local band Guiltmaker will wear this well.
