I’ve always been a fan of cartoons (Cheese is my favorite modern cartoon character), so it’s not surprising that I sometimes dress like one. I’ve been told many times that I dress too “costumey” or child-like, but I wear whatever I want, with no apologies. Maybe in the future, I’ll start dressing more like an adult. In the meantime, I’ll continue to wear my “costumey” outfits, now and then. It makes me happy!
headband: Postlapsaria bow headband, made by my intern, Catherine
dress: Postlapsaria reconstructed house dress – shortened, taken in, hemmed the sleeves, etc. I used the scraps to make a sash for the waist.
tights – I was wearing three pairs for warmth, all from different places (can’t remember).
shoes – I can’t remember! Maybe Urban Outfitters? They’re old and ratty, but I was just shopping for fabric.
coat – Zara
p.s. I always end up keeping too much of what I make or reconstruct, so I’m starting something new. I’m going to try and sell everything I make, after wearing (and washing!) it once. Let’s see if I go through with it!
