Self Portraits (hence the blurriness). Dress is an upcycled thrifted caftan. Yes, that thing used to be a Mumu. I essentially took the whole thing apart and draped it on a dummy.
I had the honor and pleasure of being drenched in the rain for fashion night out with this talented lady.

Today in history - the Senate confirms the nomination of Thurgood Marshall to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Marshall becomes the first African American to sit on the Court.
President Lyndon B. Johnson nominated Solicitor General Thurgood Marshall earlier that summer on June 13, 1967. Despite the dissent that was sparked by Marshall’s appointment, the Senate confirmed him on August 30, 1967.
Marshall was a noted civil rights lawyer and had argued for the plaintiffs before the Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, the landmark case ending racial segregation in public schools. Marshall remained on the Supreme Court until 1991.
Here are pictures from LBJ and Marshall’s Oval Office meeting regarding the announcement of the nomination.
