A few weeks ago my friend Tamila, owner of UrbanFarm Naturals and soap-stress extraordinaire, told me she was invited to the Remnants of the Past Vintage Show in San Luis Obispo, California. I am absolutely thrilled for her! These specialty vintage shows are a feast for the senses with amazingly creative vintage, antique, folk, farm and cottage themes. Each booth is a thing of beauty. Then Tamila asked me to make her a Saturday Market Dress, branded with her company's colors. Challenge accepted!
UrbanFarm Naturals' branding combines rich hues of orange and yellow with chocolate brown, and to add some bohemian flair I incorporated this floral print. She added the orange leggings, and of course, just happened to have a vintage bicycle with potted plants in the basket available for the photo shoot.
I also created a tunic length version of the Saturday Market Dress, again branded in UrbanFarm Naturals colors, this time focusing on the play on orange and chocolate. This top is feminine yet functional with the shorter sleeves, and Tamila can wear it over a pair of skinny jeans while she's running around setting up her booth.
If you happen to live in the San Louis Obispo area, or if you're up for a road trip, consider stopping by the Alex Madonna Expo Center this weekend. The Remnants of the Past show runs Saturday, June 2nd from 9-5 and Sunday, June 3rd from 9-3.
