Mata Traders Remix

Hello darlings, 

I'm back this season with another remix challenge from Mata Traders.  As you may already know, I'm a ginormous fan of this company and their mission.  Not only are Mata Traders awesome quality and not to mention gorgeous...they are a Fair Trade company.  Their pieces are sewn by members of women's cooperatives in India and Nepal which in turn provides a way out of poverty and a better future for these women's children.  Pretty awesome, right?

Anyhow, this time around I am remixing the Summerfest Dress in houses print.  Gah, I'll say it again, I'm a sucker for novelty prints and this one is perfectly cute and quirky.  Also, the cut of this dress is divine - gotta love a full skirt, yeah?  

This is one of a four part remix.  If you remember the previous remixes I did with Mata Traders - I remixed by occasions and seasons. (See HERE and HERE).  This time around, I decided to remix by  different color palettes.  

First up: I'm Black and Blue.  I really wanted to create a more neutral color scheme - so as the dress is blue and white - I wanted to throw in black, brown and ivory, to create a more classic look.  Speaking of neutrals - looks my neutral colored feathery friends wanted to join in on the challenge too.

Next up: part 2: A little color... but until then I wish you a terrific Tuesday.
Love Bunches,

  1. That dress is a look good feel good piece in so many ways. I also really like your jacket, with the cute little rolled up cuffs. Where did you get it? If you don't mind me asking!

  5. What a great cause and company. I will have to check out their shop. I try to avoid stores that sell sweat shop clothing and mostly thrift or make my own things so finding companies that sell fair trade is great. That print is fabulous and I love the look you have put together. I can't wait for the rest!

  6. The print on this dress is AMAZING! I definitely have something for house prints, as I am currently borrowing a house print dress from Sammi :) The cropped blazer is the perfect finishing touch!

  7. Marisa, you look so elegant! I think I've never seen you that way but I LOVE it and it suits you so well to wear a simple blazer and some more neutral colors. I mean, I love all your other colorful outfits too but you kow me- I am more the neutral color girl so I really really adore this outfit and you look soooooo elegant and perfect :)
    Lots of love to you!

  9. You remind me of Mary Poppins in this outfit (I think it's the hat and the blazer). I love her style so I love this look as well :) And what a cool company to be doing a remix for.
