GIVEAWAY >>> inks+thread


Amidst rain storm threats this past Sunday, Jaime and I found a quick second to meet up and catch up. Naturally, a SWIA shoot came about. Here I am wearing a vintage midi length dress – for which I have developed a keen obsession. They take on a vintage sentiment that I am drawn too. Amongst some crowds these days, the midi length dress might look frumpy or conservative – show some skin right?!? But in the 1940′s Coco Chanel modernized the skirt length by shortening it a few scandalous inches. By the 1960′s, the midi was out and the mini was in. However , I think it is about time we showed off our ankles with the midi.

Continue scrolling and you’ll find about our inks+thread giveaway.

Here it is. The oversized Girlies Bandana from inks+thread. This playful pattern was created in collaboration with Beca Lewis of Tumbleweeds HandCraft. It is 36 by 36 inches and made of 100% cotton.
