New York New Dress

I bought this dress for $10 at thrift store and gave it a makeover!  

This is the first dress I've made in New York! I don't have a machine here yet so it was all done by hand.

Musica e Moda in Italia!

My dresses have been having such a lovely tour of Europe this summer, I'm a little jealous!
Esperanza Spalding performed in the Delphinium Dress in Bard Fortress, Italy on July 21st.

I See London...

I see Esperanza Spalding performing in my Impressionist Dress in Vienne, FRANCE at 'Jazz a Viene!'    
(So sorry...I have to admit coming up with really cheesy titles for these posts is one of my favorite parts of doing this blog)

Today was the second day of my second internship in New York City.  I'm still at DVF, but I am now also working at Found Future showroom, which carries all eco-friendly designs.  It is incredibly exciting and inspiring to be around so much beautiful clothing and accessories, especially because it is all made from sustainable materials!
