Observe the charming drawstring bag made out of a Union Jack linen dishcloth. This was a b*day gift from my friend Kris Laskey many years ago. Kris Laskey is the genius behind the Sac-town label, BUTT UGLY which you may know is a favorite of mine.
Everything else is a hack job, literally. I've cut up every article of clothing that I'm wearing and have altered it in some way. I love my Ringer-T shrug. It's been cut from a ringer T-shirt and hemmed, and makes a great little summer addition when you need light layering. The navy/grey striped top used to be a tank, but is now a halter. And the shorts freshly sawed at this morning, have been distressed and torn while watching Season 3 of Design Star on hulu.com. I ripped and shredded and sewed buttons on my jeans shorts, giving them a bit more character.
Enjoying the end of summer and squeezing in one more red, white & blue outfit before the transition into Fall. It's Labor Day week-end. Time to honor the labor movement and celebrate the contributions of the working class of Americans. I am a working class American and a proud Union member.
Happy Labor Day, peoples. See you Tuesday.
