Hello! Love your site and cause. Just a thought, but have you and your friend thought about selling the dress pattern for charity? I'm sure there are avid sewers out there, keen to get a copy of that dress!

Ooooh, I'm so sorry - I didn't read the FAQ section... please ignore above comment. Still love the site though!

lo tagged this Cute

i donated $10 just to donate- i don't have a name cute enough for this outfit. it is definitely one of my favorites. for some reason you look like you're about to go ice-skating!


ual !! this is very beautiful ;D


Oh! you're so cute ;@

Gina tagged this Brave

Not a fan of this one. I love the tightss, but the vest does nothing for me.

Pen tagged this Footloose Friday

Wednesday was Soho, yesterday was Bloomsbury, today is a bit Shoreditch. Nice one.

Mrs. O tagged this Rock n' Rule

Another hit! The "don't wear white after Labor Day" rule is defunct. I love the red on top, shades of black in between, and white to end it nicely.

samar tagged this wow

love the outfit one of my favorites

Mariah tagged this The 80s Move Onward

Would normally be up to the naming challenge, but not sure I could beat "Footloose Friday" !! Love how you've updated the 80s look . . . particularly the shoes/socks with those terrif bamboo tights.

mm tagged this Bamyah!

I'd call it "In Vest In The Future" in honor of Akanksha and the fund raising of course, your site's real raison d'etre. $10 coming your way

hhh tagged this Cute

I love everything about this outfit, it's stellar. I love all of the greys and whites and blacks you used. There's a pop of color around the neck and then the buttons of the vest are light pink... it's all about the details! overall, a very hot look <3

hhh tagged this Brave

also - fashionistas get away with breaking the "fashion rules". she's wearing white after labor day... so what?? she's working it. come on now guys. some rules are meant to be broken.

What a great project! My mom should have had access to this for when i was a teenager complaining about the lack of clothing (having the closet full of stuff). Congratulations!

abigail tagged this brilliant

"Waist not, want not"

scary. tagged this class. pure class.

lady, ya should go off site more often with the shoots... not that ya don't have enough on your plate, but the shots when ya ain't in front of a screen do your looks a lot more justice ..

AntigonelivesOn tagged this Urban Ice Skater

I love all your outfits so much! This is one of my Favorites!

Irene tagged this Snazzy

Each item you have on is cute and interesting just by itself. Needless to say, when put together it looks amazing. Your boots remind me of ice-skates...

shaniam tagged this Groovy!

She looks like she's ready to do the pony! Adorable.

I hope that your dress will soon be in market (and that it will be available in Canada). This project is a very good idea. Best Regards ApollineR http://eclectic.over-blog.org

I simply love those shoes!


Re: white shoes after Labor Day.......... When a UP follower wrote, "White shoes after Labor Day! oh my...", I interpreted that as sarcasm because we all know that idea went out of vogue many, many, many years ago. Or am I wrong?

Michelle tagged this Cute

I don't understand the "no-white-shoes-after-Labor-Day rule" mainly because if you think about it, every day is after labor day technically. ANYWAY this is an adorable outfit - I especially love the tights and I'm becoming more and more envious of your legs (and legging collection) the longer this project goes on.

Deb tagged this fabulous

that is one awesome collar.

Payal tagged this Lovin it!

White shoes...awesomeness!

yobe tagged this simple
