Tank, star wrap bracelet - Target
Skirt - the Limited, thrifted
Mary Janes - Coccinelle, swap
Rachel, a reader, emailed me awhile back interested in a Father's Day portrait of her family in Steampunk fashion (linked to prevent spoilers, but click through to see). In lieu of cash payment, she asked to do a clothing swap for the art. Now I've done craft swaps before, a small one with Pansy Lane, but we traded skill for skill.
So Rachel and I hashed out an agreement and mailed me a package of goodies while I got to work. I enjoyed the project, and the swap yielded some interesting pieces for me to play with, some fit perfectly with my style, others may prove to be a challenge, but one I'm interested in trying out. I'm always open to flexible trades for buttonflowers or for art.
The shoes were a part of the box 'o goodies. I've actually worn them twice, and I think I like them better with jeans than skirts. The leather has a really cool effect though, and they're comfortable. I'm still looking for the perfect pair to fill the "black flats" gap in my wardrobe, but I may just skip that and snag these Born sandals instead. (More shoe buying?! Who, me? Never!)
