52 Pick-me-up: 90s


This week, let's have a 90's party! I'm attending as Grunge.
Featuring a Gotcha corduroy shirt, thrifted in Austin(?)
Conoz wrap skirt, thrifted in Portland
Confession: it's still too hot here in LA to dress like this all day. For work, I changed into something else entirely.
That got me thinking... what did I wear during the summer in the 90s? I think it was mostly 50's sundresses.
Oh, and big baggy jeans:

Mellow Yellow Traveling Skirt


I got my chance to cavort with the Traveling Yellow Skirt. Launched by Melanie in November 2012, it's since been on a world tour. I paired it with my own Indian jingle-jangle yellow skirt. On top is the poncho added by Tamera.
In my hair is a crocheted flower that I got at the Granny Squared event at the Craft and Folk Art Museum last May.
Since it's a "thing on my head" I'll be joining Style Crone's next Hat Attack in October.

Meanwhile, it's Visible Monday time. Go take a look!

Also, I'll put in a pitch for this week's 52 Pick-me-up challenge, United Nations. I figure since the yellow skirt originated in Canada, has already been to Australia, New Zealand, Italy, and several stops in the US and Canada, it's doing its part for international relations.

52 Pick-me-up: Coffee Klatch Tea Party

It's time for a new 52 Pick-me-up theme and this one has you looking in your kitchen for inspiration.

Fill your favorite mug (or tea cup) with your morning brew. Now dress to coordinate.
I picked this mug up on one of my cross country road trips.

52 Pick-me-up: White It Out

We're still having a lot of heat here in Los Angeles, and the above huipil is the perfect garment for staying cool and comfortable. It's the closest that my closet gets to white.
This week, share your looks that feature something white!
