|Celebrating the 4th last year with Sparklers. (Dress: BUTT UGLY)|
In American, the 4th of July is a national holiday. I use it as an excuse to put together an ensemble that features my favorite summer time color combo: the red, white and blue. I have this delicious dress- well, it used to be a skirt, a special piece made for me by Kris Laskey, the genius behind Sacramento label, BUTT UGLY, and as you know, I'm kinda a big fan. Well, I turned in into a shift a couple of years ago, and took to wearing it on Independence Day. Did I mention that is is made out of a vintage linen American flag? Yeah. American frickin' flag, peeps.
So this year, it's been turned into a top. It may convert back into a mini, later, but I'm headed off to sip a few Amercian made ales, and walk the river levee to watch some fireworks with my BFF. Kinda liked the casual look, you know for levee walking. Anyhoo, I'm posting this super fast, because I'm patriotic like that. Happy Fourth folks! Watch out for Red Coats! -Bella Q
