The Misadventures Of Tao & Lola: A Grand Bazaar

IMG_6081

 

These two have a real eye for exotic fashion! Tao and Lola embarked on a last minute trip far, far away to pick up some goodies for their extensive wardrobe. Immediately they were taken aback by otherworldly designs made of the finest silk and beads. Mysterious potions and spices filled the air as they mulled over their next purchases. Shimmering gold and jewels were tempting, but they were more intrigued by beaded purses tucked into a vintage velvet suitcase (which they also bought.)  Exploring enchanted lands surely paid off as they jetted back to the states with a new assortment of sartorial delights in tow.

This week’s installment of The Misadventures of Tao & Lola was as fun for them as it was for us! Lola is no wallflower when it comes to the camera lens, so she was on her best behavior draped in a vintage indian bib neck piece. Tao has become the breakout star (wrapped in gold and black silk) and is effectively over his photo shoot jitters. We mixed vintage and contemporary- juxtaposing authentic Indian Saris, Middle Eastern trinkets and wooden sculptures with luxurious handbags by John Galliano, Etro, and Christian Louboutin. Snag a great bag at C.Mad’s and book your next flight!
