Scottish scouting

Blouse donated by mom, vintage military vest and mustard pumps from eBay.

U.P kicks off our 6th month today and we are broaching 15K. How about an anniversary fundraiser bash in NYC at the 6 month mark?

This is unique and different. The dress appears to be fading a bit with months to go. I won't accuse you of cheating if you decide to dye them to freshen their look.

Mara tagged this Cute

sara m tagged this Brave

i really enjoy the color combos!

Louise tagged this Better than sartorial

Really cute outfit - when you execute looks like this one (blocks of solid colour, unique pieces, still minimalist) I most identify as this is close to how I dress - but better! Way more eco conscious.

Rae tagged this Cute

This one is a winner. Very classy!

Katie tagged this Cute

fibin tagged this Cute

Clever combo of blouse and vest. I will miss the backdrops in your photos when you go home and back to taking pictures in the studio.

Kay tagged this Faaaanfreakin'tastic!

You're adorable.


@holly, wish I had the luxury of time everyday to take on location shots once I get back. Sadly I have to shoot every morning before I run off to work. Perhaps the occasional weekend shots in NY?

Marian tagged this Cute

love the shape of the waistcoat...you mentioned going to work. what do you do for a living other than raise awareness about sustainable fashion and donate money to schools in India? that sounds like a lot of work to me.


@Marian, I design websites and things for a living. So now I have 2 full time gigs :-O

First time to see your project. You made my third-eye opened. Namaste!

MrMister tagged this Awesome

So cute. I probably would have gone with different color tights... but that's why I'm not super fashionable.

flashbulb100w tagged this Cute

The colors match well.

Irene tagged this Hot

reminds me somewhat of a flight attendant. I really love the colours here and how that vest completely transforms the uniform.

There is obviously a lot to know about this. I think you made some good points in Features also. http://www.powerkitesdirect.com

Payal tagged this Wow!

At the risk of sounding like a high schooler - OMG! That's amazzziinngg! I've always thought mustard is such an icky colour - but wow - put that with that blue and grey - brilliant! Another classic for me!

A 6-Month Fundraiser--now this is something I can help with Sheena! November 1st is the Marathon--would that be too cumbersome? I will send an email note and happy to drag all my friends with their checkbooks!

Laura Daly tagged this AT EASE!

Love it!!!

Livvy tagged this Cute

That's such an adorable outfit :)

Kiwiken tagged this tin soldier

I guess the outfit works, it's just again too militaristic for me. And that tie makes me think "stewardess". I wonder about those stripes on the sleeves - they can't be part of the vest? They're not part of the dress either, so are you wearing a shirt under it that you didn't mention?

Maskedmannequin tagged this Cute

what a brilliant idea...i just came across your idea via facebook and donated something. Looks like it's going really well so far :) a great cause!
