You might remember Jes from our "Youth League Does What Not to Wear" post from a couple of months back... Helena and I spent an afternoon at Jes' house digging through her closet to help her ditch the fugs and put together some outfits using the jems from her personal stash of clothes and accessories. Ever since our adventure through Jes' closet, she says that every time she gets dressed she thinks, "Would Youth League approve?" before leaving the house. Hee hee. We're so flattered.
Judging by the foxy lady that I saw at the Nic De Socio vernissage at Artguise last weekend, it looks like our hard work has paid off. Jes looks mighty fierce in her floral dress, pink cardie, and black clutch. It gets even better once you find out that her pink cardie used to be a cream- coloured turtleneck that she dyed and re-designed into the piece you see in the picture above.
To learn more about Jes' adventures in DIYing, or her work as a local make-up artist, check out her blog: Your Sweet Bippy.
To channel my favourite fashion bloggers, "Well played, Jes". Well played, indeed.
