September 6, 2016

This Outfit of the Day features a magnificent maxi skirt handmade from yards upon yards of fabric that my pal Kelly bestowed upon me. For some reason the pattern makes me think of a partridge in a pear tree. In any event, this skirt is pretty boss and I predict it will be in heavy rotation this autumn. See the full summer-to-fall frock after the jump!

I’m the Face of DopeChicButHolyChic!

Great news, gang! Yesterday, I won a contest to be the face of @DopeChicButHolyChic’s Instagram profile. I’m so flattered that I was the top vote getter, and, honestly, couldn’t believe it when I saw my face displayed on Dope Chic’s Instagram feed. What I love about Dope Chic is their abundance of always-encouraging words and uplifting prayers that are just there for the taking.

It’s a rare thing for people — women, especially — to build up rather than break down complete strangers from the safety of the Internet. However, @DopeChicButHolyChic has made it a practice to spread love, joy, peace and kindness by highlighting women for their internal and external beauty. They see past the physical and cater to the spirit of the individual they’re showcasing. In any event, I’m proud to be the face of such an inspirational movement. Thanks again, Dope Chic!
