2010: Year of the Tigress

According to Chinese Astrology, 2010 is the year of the Tiger, but I am calling it the year of the Tigress. It is a year of personal growth, intense change, travel, opportunities, friendship, and challenges. Every day, I had to learn how to land on my feet.

The project (Zip) aims to generate market desirability for a wide variety of people to use in everyday life" says Jennifer.

All I know is that with style like this, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga leading the way, I think 2011 just may be end up being the year for techno fashion. In fact, I am counting on it. For order inquiries, please contact: : orders@electricfoxy.com
