Announcement   Introducing The ART to Be Shop. Be Brave, Be Bold...Unfold who you are.
The Art to BE is a creative endeavor & NEWLY created ITEMS are added weekly. So check back often.

On a more serious note...I support recycling in our environment. Fashion is the 2nd largest contributor to waste in our world.

While my ventures are only as creative as the recycled resources available - I see each piece as a Work of Art. Each creative approach is personal, so I don't expect everyone to 'like' my ideas.

I clean everything, and use the best fabrics I can find that are recycled in my area of Southern New Jersey.

I recently watched a documentary called "The True Cost". Watch THIS FILM! It may or may not, impact the way you shop, and the choices you may make in buying clothes.
The Fashion industry is the 2ND LARGEST POLLUTER next to the oil industry!!! If we continue buying new clothes, and tossing them away in our landfills...how much more damage can this planet take? :-(

I am always looking for an opportunity to Give Back to the Community, and Family as well. I live in a small town of Woodbine, in the farming area of New Jersey, yet close by the seashore. AND, a couple miles from a major landfill dump that services the county of Cape May NJ. I just learned this, after living here for 6 years.

I see the trash, and garbage that comes from neighboring towns... slowly overtaking the area. Yet, most of the year round residents have no clue to the millions of people who come down each Summer...and unloading their junk into our landfill. They play on our beaches...and leave their trash behind, polluting our beaches and waterways. So, yes...this is close to HOME for me.

My other thoughts....
I see LIFE as being a real Art in that each one of us is an open palette upon birth. And yet, we are influence by so many things as we GROW - we never consider the Art and Work it takes to become WHO we ARE! Sometimes it's good, sometimes not so great.

Then we are forced into a role of HOW TO DRESS! And we go to cookie cutter stores to pick an outfit...that is just like someone else's. Where is the UNIQUENESS in That!?
Thus, I have seen in Life it IS a real Art to BE who you are ... You are constantly in stages of re-creating yourself on a daily basis. But I also see that we are accountable for the Place we live - Our Planet. Imagine how much we can help - if we learn to recycle, give things a second life...or to a friend, instead of throwing them away?

So, as much as I want to tell you to Enjoy The Journey. let's think beyond our own personal needs...let's remember the home we have is the only one out there - Our Earth

I also offer Vintage items at my Etsy shop, www.etsy.com/shop/thefauxchateau since 2012.

About

Making Life a Work of Art to BE who you are

I have always been inspired by others, always thinking that they have something special...that I lack. And what I realized is that I was not searching hard enough to find my Own Voice. In fact, to find my Own Voice meant I had to dig deep, think hard, and allow myself to make mistakes - to be critiqued - and sometimes venture into something without any clue as to what could Transpire.

So one day, while thinking on this, I came to the conclusion that Life for everyone is a Blank Page, a empty canvas waiting to be filled with adventures, experiences, heartaches and joys. That Life is basically an ART full of creativity that at times may be trivial - but it's still a process of creating Who YOU are, who you will be, and who you hope to be. It can affect everything...from how you wear your hair, your weight, your health...everything IS UP TO YOU.

And that is how I came up with the name - The Art to BE. With that in mind, I considered what do I like most to do in my every day living? I like clothes - mix matching, and I never decide ahead of time, what I will be wearing. Never! I know that's a real time waster - but I can't dress in my head, if I don't know HOW I will feel the next day. hahaha

And so - each outfit I come up with....some are a tried and true technique...something that no matter how I GO with IT - it comes out pretty unique. Like my Flannel tunics. Then another idea might hit me, and I'll do something abstract, daring, fun or maybe even raise a few eyebrows.

Truth is this - Why do people who want to be Different...BUY from Cookie Cutter stores? Because IT'S Safe! And while I would venture to live my life safely... I don't want to be like everyone else. and pass a person on the street, or in a hallway - wearing a dress just like mine. (YES, this actually happened to me!) And from that moment on...I began making my own clothes

So... while you may see other folks make OOAK outfits, they have tried to copy from someone else. I like to think WE are INSPIRED! But be inspired to Find YOUR own voice. AND IF you can't find your own voice...find someone who speaks your language...who's outfits (ARTFits) ... sing a song to you! I've been INSPIRED by several people...but no matter how I may try to even consider Copying... MY OWN STYLE comes out in the Mix.

And so - that is how it is - For THE Art to BE - You!
