I wore this to a clothing swap/picnic that I co-hosted with a friend this weekend. One of the best parts of the event: her boyfriend had to dog-sit for his mom’s dogs at the last minute, so he brought them along. I particularly bonded with the yellow lab, who reminded me so much of the lab I grew up with…and I had a bit too much fun dressing her up. That’s what dogs are for, right?😉
Top: Lane Bryant via clothing swap, skirt: two small skirts from the Buffalo Exchange sewn together by a friend, vest: Torrid via the Big Thrifty, fascinator: a vendor whose name I forget at a local craft fair, earrings (made out of plastic bath mats!): The Blue Cloud Gallery, necklace: Fancy Lady Industries, spiked bracelet: So Good, studded wristband: PacSun
Holly looked like a rockstar in my sunglasses.
Holly wearing one of the leftovers from the swap (a shirt that I love, but hasn’t fit me in years, so I was hoping it would go to a good home):
I got so much dog hair on me…you can kind of see it in this picture! But I’m so used to it–I grew up knowing that if I wore anything black, it would be covered in dog hair with in five minutes.
I also got to hang out a bit with Queen Cordelia, who is a ridiculously fluffy cat.😀 Dogs and cats make any social event so much better.
