Costume of The Week: Tangerine Dream

 Kickin' it Old Skool is curious about the weather--what's happening in your world? Winter weather on Lake Michigan is mysterious and a foggy, rainy, dreamy December day calls for a kick ass outfit.

This tangerine dress is one of my favorites--it has a history. This upcycled Skallywag Fashion design wasn't always a sixties inspired mini. In it's former life, it was a polyester table cloth. I like to think about the kind of people who cozied up around the table it used to drape and how many slices of pie were served.






































The breakdown: Dress made with love by Skallywag Fashions. (My mom is a sewing ninja!) The leopard print coat was a score at Unique Thrift in Cleveland (which made an excellent train pillow). Resale shop movie star sunnies, grandma's black gloves and pom-pom beret by H&M.








































What are you wearing this week?

  1. So right you are! rainy days are the perfect time to pump up the volume on our wardrobes. Something I will need to remember more often. I tend to just go for comfy but you can be comfortable with flair, too.
