Hat & Cardi: UO
Brooch: Vintage, antique mall
I'm back with my final installment on my Mata Traders Remix Challenge of the Summerfest House Print dress.
It's been one swell summer and if I can tell you anything about remixing one piece over and over again, it's that this dress has surely taken me the extra mile. I think it's the single piece in my wardrobe that has snuck it's way into my weekly wears time and time again and has been remixed far beyond what I've even shown here. Who knew a house printed dress could be so versatile? It has taken me to summer bbqs, graduations, church, open mic nights, days at the lake and has been suitable for some good ole hanging around the house with pizza and a Netflix marathon of some sort. Not bad, eh?
Anyhow, this time around I kept it monochrome...blue on blue (does anyone else hear that Bobby Vinton melody in their head now?) A cardi over a dress is ye olde summer uniform for me, so of course this dress was destined to be remixed into such an outfit.
One more sweet tidbit: As I've gone on and on in my previous remix posts about how much I adore Mata Traders dresses and the mission of the company itself, "to work with organizations (across India & Nepal) that educate, employ, and empower woman... given the opportunity, thrive in a sphere of meaningful work that is outside their homes and families". Take a peek below of some of the woman that are part of these cooperatives and artisan groups that hand make the gorgeous dresses and accessories that Mata Traders puts out.
