"Animal motion as poetry"

I love the way the whales are following each other in union. The implied motion gives an ethereal feel and it is very calming to wear.

"I get a lot of attention when I wear these"

People ask me where I got them because the style is unique. Theyre elegant and, to me, a mixture of feminine grace and masculine strength.
