Day 31

Last day, WHATTT!!!!!?

I can’t believe August is over, I mean I can, but am I really expected to take this dress off? Here you can see I am celebrating with the sis, pink princess slip under the dress and pink party hat on da headsies. Vintage like the slip, I really think this hat is great, although I often have a hard time wearing them I admit to collecting some funny hats. I am always so in awe of the way some women throughout fashion history have chosen to adorn their heads, from the wigs of 18th century french royalty to the oversized hats in easter parades and on the famous head of a women on her way to have her breakfast at tiffany’s, the flowers braided atop Frida Kahlo… A woman with a hat on is ready; you can think about her looking herself in the face, in her mirror at home, admiring the way she looks in a crown, because isn’t a hat just a more practical crown… The shoes are handed down to me from my mother (another woman deserving her crown).

I am so thankful for all of the support I have been given and that has been given to Our School at Blair Grocery through this amazing project. And now, finally (!) you can get my dress!!! Treat yourself, you deserve to feel good about supporting the School. Know when your wear your own that you are wearing a symbol, not only is this a lovely and versatile dress (if I may say so myself!) but it represents the fact that you cared enough to give.

Thanks again,




It was a wonderful month of fashion and art…good luck in your first year of college! Also, I found the piece that Style Like U did last year on you…loved it!

Well, I know that this month has been good, because I always was so eager to see what you chose to wear with your LBD every day that I usually checked the site a couple times before you’d even posted yet. That being said, you should be proud of yourself and the individuality you brought to to this project. On day one you said that you wanted to name your dress, but that you would wait to find a suitable name. Did you finally decide on one?

Congrats India on finishing the month! You did a brave and darling job. Good luck with college – it can be a magical time (when you ignore all the tests 😉
