Once upon a time there was a magical mermaid with sparkling elf ears, beautiful art covering her body and red hair made from fire. She swam at the depths of the ocean but we were lucky enough to have her here on earth for a short 33 years. She was an authentic bad-ass, wild as they come and didn't give a fuck in all the right ways.
Gracie Perkins was a girl who made you feel like you could do anything- like you could stay out until sunrise dancing on a speaker dressed as a half naked unicorn covered in glitter, like you could love harder, be stronger, cooler and do more than you ever imagined. She made you feel invincible, loved and special as she was- she was real life magic.
If you knew her, I believe you were one of the luckiest people on Earth.. If you didn't- maybe we can share some of her magic with you.
I created these pieces for my beautiful friend- my friend who gave me so much and supported me right from the start. I said I would never create anything black but it was all Gracie wore, and damn did she wear it well.
While I don't believe it is humanly possible to create a piece that is as beautiful as she was- I tried my best. I made these shorts beaded with replicas of her beautiful tattoo designs, complete with the little ruffles on the shorts she used to wear all the time. I made a pair of shorts that when you wear them, maybe- just maybe, you can feel as bad-ass as Gracie.
These stretch high waisted shorts have corset lacing at the front, and are made from a two way stretch scuba jersey so they are not just fabulous- but comfortable enough that you can last until sunrise shaking your booty in the dust, just like she used to. The shorts are hand beaded in dark mermaid scales from the deep mermaid kingdoms, with flaming red fire crystals and gold bead-work. There is a zipper at the back for easy access (Gracie would have wanted you to be able to strip off easily and dance naked in the traffic should you feel the urge arise).
