It’s electric. Boogie woogie woogie.

K, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. The skirt’s not quite electric blue, it’s maybe a shade or two darker.


It’s vintage and it was long. Like really long. Like flowy, ankle-skimming long. Until I had my way with it.


My belt came from another dress. I rarely wear the belt that a skirt/dress/sweater came with (don’t ask me why). But I will wear that belt with another piece.


The sandals? They’re my sisters. The necklaces? Inspired by Mr. T.

Aaaaaand, in case you missed the After Show on MTV last night, you can watch the show featuring our (ridiculously embarrassing) birthday message for Jessi here. Happy birthday, Jess!

    (1) You are so beautiful

    (2) and so very classy.

    I really like your outfit and how you upcycled that skirt. I can not even imagine it being ankle/floor length.

    I pity the fool that does the electric slide. ;)

    Sisters rule – love those sandals.

    What a pretty shade of blue but i agree with Esther – i can’t see how that skirt could be long.

    You look so elegant. The separate top and skirt work so well together, you’d think it was a single colour block dress!

    So wait… you had a skirt hemmed? So unlike you ;-) Seriously though, I think one day you have to take me vintage shopping. I just don’t have the patience and all your finds are so amazing. Love the skirt, the belt and I can’t take my eyes of that necklace.

    Esther — you are too sweet.

    t. — have you ever seen Mr. T’s self-help video “Be Somebody”? It’s the funniest thing in the world. You’d love it.

    Liv — can’t wait to see the photos of all of us wearing that same shade of blue.

    Quelle — on behalf of my sister: thanks chiquita!

    Lisa — you’re so right, it would be beautiful as a block dress. Now I want to get one made.

    haute — come to Vancouver and we can go vintage shopping. Or better yet, I’ll come to Europe. All the vintage shops you’ve found in London look amazing!

    La C. and Gerri — thank you thank you thank you!

    Hi, you look fabulous!
    May I ask, where did you get your skirt from? it’s exactly what i’m looking for! Please let me know? Thanks!!!

    Valerie — I’m sorry to say I don’t actually remember which vintage shop I found it in (yeesh, I hate to admit how much I shop), but if you do go hunting for something similar, take a look for skirts that are floor length, too. Sometimes they can be so flowy that they shorten to be quite nice and full like this one did.
