I got today’s lovely piece from my gal Sonya Nimri. We have fun trading stuff to each other that we don’t like for ourselves – I’ll bring over shoes that don’t work for me but are perfect for her and vice versa.
I guess I just lucked out with this piece.
Does this skirt not scream 80s hair band? I smell Poison, Guns n Roses, Def Leppard…
…and Arrested Development (not the band) which starts back up on Netflix today!!! For the AD fans, this piece made me think of Tobias Fünke (David Cross) and his suffering from being a Never Nude. (For the non-fans, this Never Nude syndrome forces Tobias to never be nude, always wearing cut-off jorts under his clothes. Ridiculous and amazing.)
I’m so excited about the new season and I’m such a huge fan of the show that I went to the pop-up banana stand this past week in LA to indulge in an “On the go-go banana” (OK, just a regular chocolate covered one)…
…and thought this skirt would be my Never Nude uniform
I loved this print so much that I picked it up out of piles of clothes at a garage sale without really knowing what it was. It totally screamed, “It’s A Sunshine Day” á la The Brady Bunch and that could have been why I loved it so much.
I wasn’t sure if it was a pillowcase at first, however once I held it up I saw that it was a tube dress of sorts…just one without any straps and a wonky top portion!!
Time to get this Memorial Day weekend-ready!!
I guess I’ve been doing this long enough that I shouldn’t be surprised when I find the same piece somewhere else! I mean, two weeks ago I found the same exact pattern from a dress that I remade on a dress that Ece Sukan was wearing…
Today I was shocked yet again. I saw a garment on Krowe NYC’s etsy page that looked extremely familiar.
Could it be??
This dress came from a swap party I went to a few months back. I saw the colors and the print…
…and scooped it up when nobody was taking it. I just love the pink and green combo and wanted it to be mine!!
I feel like the print should have little whales or anchors on it just mainly for the color! The dress was just a little too big, so all I wanted to do was make it fit…here goes a few adjustments to do just that!
I feel like I’m having my lace stage at the moment. I’ve gotten my hands on a bunch of lacy pieces recently that are making me vurry, vurry happy. This one might just take the cake!
I mean, it’s all lace!! I’m not into the excessive collar and it obviously needs something to be worn underneath…
…however I’ve got a serious crush on it.
