It's another day off from the coffee shop! Today has been dedicated to the fashion shows coming up, on both the 16th (this weekend!!!) and the 30th. Both shows will include my Cedar Rapids blogger lady brood (Ramona, Carissa, Sonya, and myself) showcasing sustainable and thrifted fashion, but two very different collections!
For the Eco Arts Festival this weekend (starting at 7p sharp!), I plan to showcase the wear-ability of thrifted and resurrected clothing. You know, looking cute while being broke (and caring for our environment!).
Recycle In Style (April 30th) has chosen "Thrift by Design" to be the year's theme. I'm looking forward to bringing thrifted items to life in a creative (and possibly wild) way in my own style. Expect to see patterns on patterns on patterns!
