Sophomore Brittany Wolff is no stranger to style. She admits to having played dress up as a child and likes to pick different styles (think hippie or 80s) to imitate on a day-to-day basis. Wolff’s favorite designer is Betsy Johnson because of the vintage inspired pieces in her collections. Wolff’s most beloved articles of clothing, though, are pieces she made herself. “My favorite piece of clothing is a sundress that my mom and I made. It’s really colorful because the fabric is hand painted [with] water colors,” she said. Wolff starting sewing as a child and sold her own jewelry and purses in elementary school and junior high. She also hand-made all of her own prom dresses and sundresses with some help from her Mom, who taught Wolff to sew. “This summer I want to spend my free time trying to design some sundresses. I have already envisioned and revamped some vintage ones I found in thrift stores.” Needless to say, Wolff loves to wear dresses in the spring!
I don’t even have anything cultural informative for this entry. I just want to say that my new favorite website is etsy.com, a website where people can buy and self handmade stuff. Since I’m all for DIY and green products, I’m in love with this site!!
