Louise tagged this another UP original....

I love it. The soft textures and the muted colours. Very sweet and laidback at the same time. You make it look so easy, I applaud you.

Beth tagged this Cute

Love the hat and shoes!

Janice tagged this Cute

Like the ruffle! I'll admit at first I was very thrown by the zipper in the front. Aha, now I see. Have fun with Google folk!

Sarah J tagged this 20s style

love the purple

fleur tagged this fadelisk

you probably think you've got it going on bossa nova, and you'd be right.

Sam tagged this Nice

Totally agree with Louise

Deb tagged this Hot

One of my personal favorites. It transforms the uniform in a subtle way, and it's incredibly sexy! Love the necklace, too.

prutha tagged this Hot

congrats on google thing! love the outfit

Mariah tagged this Fall Chic

Amazing outfit! Love the colors and textures, esp. w/hat&pumps lighter contrast. Also like the pop of blue in the necklace (tho' DO wish it was about 1 inch shorter . . . does it adjust?)

Loving the purple. I just wanted to tell you how much i've enjoyed your project. you've inspired me in so many ways. I love the idea of reusing and not wasting things. I've just made a donation. I feel it's the least I can do for all the fun I've had seeing how creative you can be every day.

The beige cap and shoes kick the hot purple out of this world! Spectacular!

Kiwiken tagged this a little plain...

Very cute; I almost thought you cheated with a new uniform piece (it looked like velvet in this shot, and the collar looked like a part of it)! I am so impressed and inspired by your boundless creativity. Looking forward to your new ideas each day!
