She Lives On Love Street is a gorgeous love letter to Jim Morrison of The Doors, in the form of an organic, eco-friendly, vegan clothing line – handmade in the USA by one lovely kind activist.
Each piece is made up of exquisite vintage lace and earth loving organic fabrics, but they are also made of non-dress elements, says Melissa Slack, the owner/ designer/ model who says;
“Pure love, peaceful energy, raw sensualism, childlike adventure, non-cruelty, fearlessness, the whole cosmos… and without these things, the dress wouldn’t exist in its most truest nature. Just as a flower would collapse without the sun, soil, and rain. One of my favorite things in the world is to connect and read messages from my customers, I call them my ‘sisters,’ because that’s truth. One sweet sister will write that she can’t believe that when slipping the gem on, it loves her completely. Or another whom I’ve never met who lives in London or the Netherlands writes that she can actually feel the uninhibited sensuousness of the piece while wearing. Isn’t that fantastic!! That’s energy!”
So yea, she’s crazy hippy, and we love it.
The pieces range from $80-180. They are glorified lingerie – bits of beautiful fabrics stitched together that will make you feel pretty. This isn’t a corporation backed fashion line that pays much attention to trends or season. This is old-school handmade at its best. Perfect for resort, vacation, summer, or indoor private time with your lovah! Melissa’s fall pieces are coming out in October, and we can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve!
Melissa is a decade-long vegan, and a tireless animal, human, and earth rights activist who became a practicing Buddhist 3 years ago. She had no formal fashion schooling, until vintage reworking called her name.
Her shop is a Farm Sanctuary corporate partner for compassion, which means that each dress is helping save lives from horrific suffering and slaughter.
