So this is sara (also a red head) and she wore this at one of our fashion shows back in the day when i used to silk screen vintage. my friend darine and i used to trade vintage pieces all the time and i believe she was the one that swaped with me! she ended up with this totally rad acid wash denim dress...why did i give it up? well because i couldn't breathe in it and darine is super tiny! plus i wanted that ivory number! isn't darine the cutest down there in that rockin denim dress!? go read her blog if you want the scoop on her fab life in NY.
anyway that fashion show was like 5 years ago....and in Houston. and today i was looking through BUST magazine and boom i spotted my bueno bueno silk screened dress in a salon ad for fringe but not immediately i was looking at it bc it was a salon ad in new york and i was wondering if that is where my friend rannie goes now and then i looked at what the girl was wearing and i was like NO FRIGGIN WAY! crazy huh? it made it's way up to NEWYORK and got a new black print added to it. I love how this dress keeps making new friends!  i would love to know how they got that dress??

do you ever have swap's with your friends? and has anyone ever been to Fringe salon in new york?

wow, that's awesome and kind of funny that you just happened to stumble upon it and had no idea it was in that magazine!

it's a pretty dress, but i think i liked it better before the black.

funny thing is i actually placed this ad in the magazine (while i worked there) and i commented on two things: how adorable the redhead was and how cute the dress was she was wearing :) fringe always has fab real-life "models" and they're a top-notch salon. i highly recommend them! (and i highly recommend bust, too! my love of loves!)

I'm the roommate of Lizz the Fringe redhead and a friend of Sarah the original redhead! I think Sarah and I traded frocks, I ended up with that one somehow. One night Lizz was doing some woodcut prints of her comics characters and all the roomies put up an article of clothing to be printed -- mine was that dress. I couldn't pull it off, she looked so cute in it. I passed it along to her!

www.lizzhickey.com -- she is mega awesome!

This is so super cool that it made it into Bust for you to see its journey.
