Last Friday my friends and I hosted a fundraiser for the Tacoma Urban Art Festival. It's an event I've been involved with for the past 6 years and fundraisers and benefit shows are a bit part of what helps us pay for the actual festival. The theme of last week's party was "Retrograde". 50s 60s and 70s attire was encouraged.
Back around the beginning of the month, I realized I had absolutely nothing to wear to this party. I put out a call for help to the Fatshionista
community and was thrown a lifeline by Jenn of Stay Classy Los Angeles
. In addition to being a blogger and fashionista, she's also a costume designer for California Costumes
, a wholesaler that supplies retail stores like Target, Party City, and BuyCostumes.com. She offered to hook me up with one of their new designs, the Groovy Chick. ( Click to see the grooviness...Collapse )
