Hi all! I hope you’re having a swell week filled with all sorts of awesomeness. :) I’m having a blasty with my awesome new job/awesome new coworkers. I feel truly lucky to get to wake up every day to go in to work to do things that I’m really good at and actually enjoy. :)
But enough of that! When we last spoke, I asked you guys which was your favorite from my One Dress, Three Ways feature.
It was basically a tie between Dress #1 and Top #2. Poor Skirt #3 didn’t get much love at all, but that’s okay. I didn’t care that much for it either. ;) Cest la vie! Thanks for making your voice heard. Feedback like this helps me know what types of refashions you guys like to see/what inspires you and that’s always a good thing.
Spring is just around the corner! Soon we can toss our SAD lamps and jackets aside…but not quite yet. When I was invited to what promised to be a fun oyster roast, I knew this was just the thing for it:
I’m not a big fan of corduroy. I don’t really like touching it, and I HATE the swishy-swishy sound corduroy pants make. There was no way this was going to remain a dress (in case the title of this post didn’t clue you in). ;)
I pinned that edge under…
I was nervous about stitching it down, given the weirdo problem I had with my machine recently, but much to my relief, everything went just fine!
I pressed that new hem down, and now I have a great pre-Spring jacket with a bit of 60’s-ish flair!
The oysters were delicious, and the company was lovely! :)
Perhaps I’ve judged corduroy too harshly all along!
