One thing that must be said about Lora Cunningham's rag-bag getup: it kind of reminds me of museum shops from the early-mid '90s, and that's kind of a good thing. I find museum shops very comforting, with their blocks of notepaper and artsy old-lady earrings.

I had a dress very like Jo Champa's that I wore to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. It was my first "teen" dress, and my mom let me get it so I could stop wearing Laura Ashley and Mousefeathers to events where the other girls looked like tiny, sexy women. (Even though my teen dress didn't really fit.)
