All remixed except dress
Wedges: Restricted via DSW
Bracelet: Banana Republic
So this past weekend, B. and I went on a fabric buying expedition to feed my sewing dreams. We went to Jomar, which is, like, the fabric emporium around here and were distracted by $10 dresses of varying quality. B. picked out this dress, and I picked out another which will probably come out later this week. Oh, and I got fabric, too. We weren't totally distracted.
I'm really digging the Jackie O vibe of this dress and the fact that it's got pockets. It's a nice, cool cotton/linen blend and I feel wonderful in it, even if it doesn't photograph terribly well. Believe me, it's prettier in person.
I thought these funky wedges would be just the pop of color I'd need with a brown dress. These wedges make me happy with their crazy print and those little wooden rings on the front.
Finally, to keep the "Jackie O. goes on safari in inappropriate shoes" vibe I was going for, I wore this beaded cuff and my quetzal earrings from Guatemala. The woman I'm sharing an office with at my volunteer site told me that she appreciates the fact that I dress up to volunteer. It kind of made my (busy) day.
And now, without further ado, is my attempt at a video. Seven facts in seven minutes. I talk too much; I attribute that to the nervousness. Also, my posture is atrocious. Enjoy!
