Day 48 of Dress the Rainbow in bright white with the lovely ladies of Small Fry, a children’s blog based here in Provo. These three are quite the team, ripping up the children’s blogosphere with cute and stylish crafts along with style advice for moms. One of my favorite projects was this video about kids and love. SO good! Thanks for dressing the rainbow with my ladies!
Day of 45 of Dress the Rainbow in purple with Lacy Timmerman of Lacy Dresses Vintage and her mom’s shop, Why Naught shop. I first met these lovely ladies at Vintage Whites flea market earlier this year and it was love at first sight. I felt like I had found a long lost sister. This duo does an amazing job of curating the best of the best vintage dresses out there (I wanted this one so bad! Scroll down!). Lacey is getting married in the next couple of weeks and it’s been so fun to see all the elements she’s creating for it.
And another fun celebrity story: Mindy Kaling bought the dress on the right just last week. Gah!
Day 33 of Dress The Rainbow in light teal with Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag, illustrator (of this adorable flower), kids crafter extraordinaire, blogger. Here’s the thing about Merrilee. You’d never know it by the initial meeting because she’s so humble, but Merrilee knows everything. When I need sound design advice, I go to Mer. When I need technical advice info to Mer. When I need hair/make up advice I also go to Mer. She knows everything! Even things you wouldn’t expect. Aside from that her knowledge of everything, she’s a great friend with fun kids, a beautiful house, kind heart, a huge imagination, and a pure love of making beautiful things. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, get to know it! And stay tuned for her line of dolls this fall!
Day 18 of Dress the Rainbow in bright yellow with my pal, the one and only Mindy Gledhill, an indie singer/songwriter, whose music will leave you swinging and twirling. You might remember her from when I did her sets for her album, Pocket full of Poetry, and from the background music to some of my classes. Needless to say, I’m a big Mindy fan. I’ve gotten to know her more and more since living in Provo and I admire her work ethic and desire to live an authentically full life and it comes across in her lyrics, videos, and mannerisms.
Mindy has had some exciting projects on her hands! First of all, she remodeled a vintage tour bus, which we are posing against, and took it on a cross country tour with her family in tow. Watch a new web series about it at ulive.com. It’s so dreamy!
More recently, she announced the upcoming release of her new electro-pop duo with @dustingledhill called “Hive Riot” (@hiveriot), which I’m totally thrilled about. The album is set to be released in the fall. Stay tuned and make sure to follow her here.
We’re already on Day 12 of Dress the Rainbow and it’s orange red in my new Hedley & Bennett apron. Have you heard of them? Ellen Bennett started the company after working in several restaurants in LA and noticing the mundane aprons, she set out on an apron crusade. I heard her speak at Martha Stewart’s American Made conference in November in NYC and the girl is pure joy. She loves aprons and life! Call me a convert. Mind you, it doesn’t convert me to cooking, but I’m not opposed to going Amy Sedaris style walking around town in an apron. And a pet bunny on a leash.
