Father's Day

fathers day 0885 Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

It may come as a surprise, but a lot of what I know about choosing outfits, DIY, and sewing I learned from my dad.

He was a fashion guru, and before I was born, him and my mom had their own fashion line, 'Gold Digger.' No hints on how they came up with that name ;P

I was always the best and most uniquely dressed, because my dad sewed most of my clothes.

He was a huge fan of repurposing old clothes, which is something I post a lot about on this blog.

Maybe it had something to do with living in Russia, where fashion wasn't a big thing, and variety was even less important, my dad tended to recycle so much of our clothing. It's something I love doing to this day. Taking an old dress and making it into a cool top.

This Donna Mizani dress might not seem ideal for Father's Day, but since he was a fashionista, he would have appreciated an LBD. This dress with a flounce skirt is a great option for Father's Day.

I'd never pass up an opportunity to plug 'the perfect LBD' like this Donna Mizani dress. This dress with cutouts is also great for a dinner night out.

Another thing my dad taught me is quality over quantity. I carry this Ralph Lauren bag all the time because it's great quality, and who needs a hundred different black bags?? ;P

We didn't have the best relationship, but I'm grateful for everything my dad taught me. It's knowledge I use everyday!

 

Have a great weekend guys!
