 Fact; Philadelphia is unfortunately listed as the #2 dirtiest city  in the United States at least by this source . (#1 is New Orleans but I hardly think they count after Hurricane Katrina). There’s a big Unlitter Us campaign going on all over Center City so I’ve decided that as a parting gift to Philly I’d like to contribute to this cool clean-up movement. How? By posting about this girl’s passion for TRASHion.

First, the dress! I created it out of a black 30 gallon trash bag and two 13 gallon white ones tied together. The earrings? Folded newspaper squares from the Philadelphia Inquirer. Green eye shadow because of course picking up litter is the green thing to do. My newspaper nails are also thanks to the Philadelphia Inquirer and good old rubbing alcohol.

P.s. This was my first time trying out “high fashion” poses so feel free to laugh at my attempts. I’m chuckling now looking through the pictures. One day I will nail that snotty stare!

it's fashionable to recycle

Remember to always recycle!
