Once I am in the crafty swing of things I dig it. But before I actually start craftin' I have horrible flashbacks to when my friend S and I used a tutorial to make men's button downs into cap-sleeved lady button downs. With nary an iota of success among us. Okay, among moi. Capsized cap-sleeve project. Miserable little esteem killer.
Segue: Look at this cute FIV+ kitten who was rescued by Design*Sponge and found a home the same day! Doin' good kitten deeds! Kitten miracles! FIV+ cats can live a nice long life inside in a low-stress environment. Lucky little dude.
urban renewal dress (deadstock, not sure if made in usa) maggie's organics tights vintage shoes via etsy
Outfit scorecard (animals, people, world): Overall this outfit was pretty decent. The Urban Renewal dress didn't indicate where it was made (they are usually within the US), which I didn't realize until after I'd ordered, but it is deadstock. Maggie's Organics has decent labor practices & uses organic cotton. The shoes are vintage (reuse) via Etsy and tagged vegan, which always makes me more likely to buy the item.
