in the year 2020, how do people just completely fall off the face of the internet?
now that i’m a working adult with a decent salary, i would like to buy things from certain vendors and makers that i couldn’t afford in the mid/late 2000s. perfect example: i just got lost in a damn wormhole trying to find judy of joodito.
i was cleaning out one of my bedroom closets, and i found two joodito jackets that i purchased when i was younger. i have no idea how i even pulled that off, because they were both $200 and over. i didn’t have money like that, i must have purchased those on tax refunds or some shit, lol.
anyways, i still love futuristic/modern shit and while i do stumble upon sellers on etsy that have these style jackets, but they’re just not the same. i often just often times just settle for weird nike jackets, but JOODITO JACKETS (and clothing)… lawd. they were fucking amazing.
what’s confusing the shit out of me is that she just is NOWHERE… like, not on any social media that i can find. i did find an email address maybe she still uses, but i feel like that’s taking it a step too far. i remember when she was still active on etsy, she turned on the “shop is taking a short break” message, but i figured it would be temporary. since then, there’s been no update. same ol’ “short break” aka, like almost a decade?
just *POOF* she’s completely vanished.
her clothing was right alongside the style and quality of early supayana pieces. i DREAMED of someday filling my closet with pieces from them. upcycled, weird, rad, LONG, modern pieces. nowadays, yana is just doing kids clothing… aka my dreams have been shattered, lol.
anyways, if you’re not familiar with what judy’s pieces looked like, here are some timeless, and amazing samples.
JUDY WHERE ARE YOU?!
the fashion world is way less cool without you in it!
