This outfit is sort of a grown up girly version of what I often wore in high school…a long skirt, long sleeved T with a short sleeved T over it. Of course back then it was usually some sort of vintage T (many of which I still own come to think of it) and more often than not the long sleeved T was striped or waffle and the skirt was floral. I like this idea of doing an upscale version of something that was worn in such a different context. I wore the dress as a skirt, holding it up with a vintage leather belt and pulling some of the bodice over the top of the belt to create a bit of a paper bag waist look. I’m also wearing a handmade cuff made by some friends I met a few years ago at a music festival we sold our designs at, their line is called Jungle Tribe…and this cuff is definitely one of the more understated pieces!
I can’t believe how quickly the month has flown by! If you haven’t had time to donate yet, go do it now! Think of all the money we’re spending on ourselves at this time of year (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Holiday shopping, etc.) I’m sure everyone can spare a few dollars…as I mentioned the first week, even the amount we spend daily on a cup of coffee can help make a difference!
P.S We’ve got a Classic LBD Special running for the Holidays!
