Another pair of loud pants I made. These are harder to pair, and while it seems odd that red works since there isn’t actually any red in the print, somehow, that’s the best combo.
Crisp white blouse and skirt from La Tienda de Jardin. I am never disappointed there.
This simple tee I got at La Tienda de Jardin is somehow the most perfect top to wear with the dragon pants I made last year. I felt like a million bucks in this outfit.
I don’t know why exactly I don’t like this top I made, but it has since been consigned to the “make it into something else” pile…..
When the smile has passed it’s “sell by” date.
The great DKNY top with the skirt I made from a dress. Note: Pockets.
This skirt I made is such a weird shade of blue that it’s hard to pair with anything; but this morning I met the challenge and put it together with this blouse. One more day of successfully dressing myself.
The pink top that never lets me down along with a skirt I made. I also made a top that matches this skirt, and when I would wear it to work, one of the professors I worked with would say it was a very “Gustav Klimt” outfit. It isn’t, though, the colors are wrong. It’s really much more Seurat with that muted palette and all the dots. I quit before I got to point that out to him, though.
I made this top from a vintage 1950s housecoat that was in practically new condition. Everything about it is so great; the details, colors, and fabrics, the POCKETS. There just isn’t much opportunity to wear a housecoat these days, so I felt shortening it would give it new life.
Stop telling me to smile.
