Eco-Friendly Fashion Show PT. 2

So here are a few pics from the actual show. Sadly there were too many lights shining on our fashionable clothing, so many of the pictures did not work out. But thank you to Jana for taking them anyway!

Bohemian superhero! (WLL's altered mustard top [Goodwill],
electric blue belt and pinky-beige turban [Nana])

WLL's vintage leather Jacket and wife beater, altered flood pants
(remember this from 'Frump to Fabulous edition 1??)

WLL's cut-off mom jeans and pink sweater with lace tie
(The lovely VV Boutique)

Both our eyes are closed! I guess we were having such a good time that we fell asleep!
Rusty's outfit from lace curtains and WLL's
altered "White Wedding Onsie!"

p.s. I wonder who's stripy arm is in like every shot?

Blog Photo Follow-up (Buck Starball Edition)

This is what happens when you don't have facebook. You have people (and by people I mean a certain creepy 28 year old photographer) take photos of you hitting some less-than-mediocre "alternative" superSTAR with his tin-foil wand and only discover the photos a month later.

Yeah I know, I'm a blogphoto slut. This is unimportant.

Making dresses from Granny's Lace Curtains

Once again not actually cutting up something owned by my Granny. But this is also for that Environmental fashion show we are taking part in. I guess you can see my theme... granny. I have decided this is my theme for life. I attribute everything I do to being a granny, what I eat, how I dress and especially if my old bones are acting up. Maybe when I am actually a granny I will relive my youth and be a real bad ass granny who acts like she's in her 20's. I think that is when I will get a tattoo. Maybe I'll get a mohawk. My poor grandchildren will be embarrassed to be seen with me on the street. AWESOME. that is what i will go for.

Making Skirt Suits from Granny's Afgan

No, I don't think I could cut up anything that my grandmother would knit me. But then again, besides maybe some mittens from my childhood that have long since been lost, she hasn't really knit me anything.

The crazy looking knitted material for this little number was happily discovered at Value Village. I'm not sure if this will become a regular staple to my wardrobe (maybe the jacket). It is actually for an "Environmental" Fashion Show that me and Wong Ling Ling are in. Stay tuned for more recycled clothing as we slowly pump them out.

Hair Evolution

Because I don't have a camera anymore (result of my camera breaking curse), it has been hard to make any real posts....... but thank god for my vanity and mac book!

I'm currently growing out my mini-mullet right now, but it's hard to stick to it! Some say boy cuts suit me. Some say I should grow out my locks, for old times sake.
I guess you can help me decide...

What's your hair identity? Do you shave racer stripes to be UnIqUe? Do you gel your curls in hopes of being the next Guess girl? ? COMMENTZ GUYZ!!!!!!!!!!C'mon!
