what should ally wear?


ally’s going to the townie party this month. she cannot, for the life of her, figure out which outfit to wear!

ally’s been going back and forth about what heavenly metal outfit to wear, so we decided to let our store customers and online viewers choose for her! she absolutely adores the new mata traders dresses we just got in for summer. a fair-trade company with the most beautiful patterns and styles, the clothing is designed in chicago and then handmade in india and nepal by women’s cooperatives and fair trade organizations. way cool is what we all figure, plus we had to get in a second order less than a week after our first order because heavenly metal shoppers like them a whole lot too!

ally looks awfully adorable in the multi-patterned “muna dress,” accented with bed stu’s red mitchell belt and a fabulous necklace from reworks by vick . . . and that most popular shoe fly london yaya in red!

she’s also considering wearing the “paint the town dress” with jill schwartz’ “yes we can” necklace and fly london’s yogo shoe. this dress is a cute flared skirt with solid black midriff top. so comfortable and so so flattering.

. . . . then there’s the “do si do dress” worn with our latest jill schwartz “trinket necklace” and OTBT’s springfield mule in cashew. the patterned accents on the dress are on the two pockets, a placket across the shoulders in back, and the “collar” in front. sweet.

ally has admitted that her favorite is the “tallulah maxi dress” worn with jill schwartz earrings and hila’s beaded bracelet with leather closure. this is a fabulous look, isn’t it? I’d love to see someone purchase it to wear to a summer wedding.
