Yesterday, after a busy 11-hour day, I didn’t have the desire to set up my old system of photographing outfits when I got home from work, and as such, didn’t take pictures of my outfit. Also? My hair looked pretty awesome. All big and curly and wild. I’m really, really into big hair right now.
If you’re wondering, I wore this jacket, sweater and blouse, these jeans and these shoes. Oh, and these earrings.
Due to my lack of an outfit today, I leave you with this collection of photos on The Big PIcture, gathered in celebration of the upcoming Earth Day (commemorating it’s 42nd year on April 22nd), and a reminder that an awesome way to celebrate Earth Day (especially in Winnipeg), is to stop by Take Off Your Clothes being held at the Delta on Saturday, April 21st from 11:00am-4:00pm. Not only would it be all environmental and stuff, but all proceeds will be going towards the Kids Help Phone!
Save the date, my Winnipeg friends. On April 21, from 11-4, The Swap Team is coming to Winnipeg for the first time ever, and taking over part of the Delta Hotel for a giant clothing swap to benefit the Kids Help Phone!
I’m pretty pumped for this event. Not only am I passionate about clothing, but swapping is a sustainable way to flex my shopaholic muscles (I’m a hippie AND a shopaholic). I’ll be curating the clothing selection from 2-4, which is going to be a ton of fun.
To participate, pick out a selection of clean, gently worn clothing in good condition, print out a copy of this form, fill it out and drop off your selection in a clear plastic bag at one of these three locations before April 15th:
