New York, New Yo...
i swear. i just don’t know how to use my camera in a low light setting yet.
i got the courage to try this vintage mccalls pattern (7827) for an oona does it! challenge that 3 other lovely ladies participated in— i knew they would all make something fabulous so i had to raise my own bar. everyone went for a teal & red palette. though i was stoked about this combo, in the end i couldn’t bring myself to add red to this dress (all i could think of was supergirl), but you can see a bit of burgundy in my FABULOUS FIVE DOLLAR SHOES.
i’m sorry. i’m okay.

Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
