If looking like you belong in a Dick Tracy comic is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Geometric shapes in primary colors? Oh yeah. Hunting in the basement of a Connecticut thrift store, this dress was pointed out to me by my four-year-old shopping companion, Lucy. And I don’t know about you, but if something catches the eye of a thrifty pre-kindergardener, and it’s only two dollars, it’s a must-have in my book. And can you believe I found this hat at the same store for only three dollars? Score.

While wearing this dress at the super fun Cleveland design conference, WMC Fest, the adorable and hilarious mom of my my adorable and hilarious friend Tuesday pointed at my dress and told me that she liked my “circles,” hence the title of this post. It just so happened my lovely friend Carolyn was also wearing circles that day, so hanging out together, we kinda looked like a summery Pop art gang. (We were even covered side-by-side half-way through this ILTHY street style post.) Here’s a WMC Fest wrap-up video in which I make a little cameo commenting about what makes the event special. If you’re anywhere the Midwest in June, I highly recommend attending WMC Fest.
Thank you to one of our newest Studiomates, the amazing and talented Julia Robbs, for helping me capture these pics.
