Remember when I showed you ‘a day in the life‘ earlier this month, featuring vitaminwater? This is what we headed downtown to shoot: an outfit representation of me hating summer and craving the dark colors and heavy fabrics of fall. It was… the opposite of fall outside. It was so terribly hot. This delicious cold beverage was gone before we got back to the car. (XXX vitaminwater is my fav.)
The Arch grounds are currently under construction, but you can still score a good view if you know where to go. We, however, did not know where to go, so we followed the crowds and some spray-painted notes on the sidewalk. It is so insanely big once you get close to it; we had to backtrack to get the perfect view. Worth it!
I bought this dress a few years before I moved to St. Louis — when I was still living across the river in Collinsville — at, of all places, Delia’s. It was almost thrown in the garage sale pile, but I decided to give it one last shot. A junior’s dress on a grown-woman body means it’s a bit bustier than I remembered. This leather vest (not a smart pick for summer, but fashion > function) helped to adjust the top, and the leopard booties added an extra bit of edge to what would have been a too-romantic-for-me frock.
Speaking of fashion, two of the highlighted #ProjectHustle projects are fashion-related. The others include art, tech, music, and film.
