I'm on Urban Weeds! How to Wear DIY-ing it up

Exciting news for you today--I'm featured on the beautiful street style blog Urban Weeds!  Urban Weeds is the work of the very talented Lisa Warninger, a commercial photographer here in Portland who has done work for Elle.com, Chronicle Books, Nike, and others (and who also does some absolutely drool-worthy home dec, product, and food photography, too--OMG, wish I could work that magic with my camera). So I'm so excited I got to be one of her subjects!

Urban Weeds showcases Portlanders showing off our sense of fashion and style.  In my case, I'm proud to be wearing a dress I made (this colorblock linen bustier dress) and shoes I dyed, because my DIY is such a  big part of my style, hence my How to Wear DIY posts and constant pinning of sewing and DIY inspiration.

Check it out here!
