Before the airport
Top: Me-Made tee (first t-shirt!)
Bottom: Refashioned jeans
I've been going on about a practical wardrobe which, for me, typically precludes skirts and dresses. Then my friend Shelley had to come and visit with her army of cute knit dresses. Sigh. I'm so impressionable.
So, a few hours before my graduate reading last week, I decided I absolutely needed a dress. I took this skirt, never worn and received in a clothing swap. It was too long, but the knit was divine. I simply folded it over and in a few hours, I whipped this up. Added a bit of polyester trim, some bottoms and a halter neck.
It's far from perfect, but I think I'm finally getting hip to this knit-dress thing. It feels like you're wearing pajamas but it still qualifies as cute. This is the second time I've worn it.
Hot! I needed something I could sweat in.
Accessories: Me-Made Mad Men Headband.
I don't like this combo at all, so lesson to me: Combine the tops and bottoms with other pieces this month.
Back in my digs. Need to go to the office.
Top: Altered tank
Bottom: Me-Made Marie Skirt
Accessories: Me-Made Mad Men Headband
I hardly wear the Marie skirt because it feels a bit baggy and the zipper's wonky. But hey, that's what sweaters and belts are for, no?
