Alright all…when I began this year, I started with a most noble goal of writing a post every day. I don’t know what else to say, except that wasn’t realistic. It just wasn’t. “But wait! You did a refashion every day for a year four years ago! Why can’t you do it again?”, you may be wondering. There are pllllllenty of reasons. My day job is more demanding. I have other interests (like cooking) that I want to explore. I miss reading. I travel a lot. Writing every day made it hard to actually sew anymore. Most importantly, I felt I was losing the joy of this blog by trying…
I’ve noticed a trend that I’ve been desperate to get in on. It’s called the Deep V-backed Sweater, and I LOVE it.
Sometimes, all you need to make a refashion work is one simple step. Yes, we could all expend a ton of effort for every. single. refashion. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. Sometimes the simpler solutions are the best ones. This is one of those refashions. 🙂 I began my morning with this dowdy dress with a fun print.
I can’t believe the weekend is almost over! Ugh! I hope yours was as fun & relaxing as mine was! I spent most of today in this green frock:
This has been the warmest winter I have ever experienced. While some of you are undoubtedly bundling up in thick puffy coats over thick puffy vests, we’ve been wearing short sleeves and flip flops for the past month here in SC. Until today. Last night, temps finally plummeted to winter-appropriate levels. :/ I pulled my porch plants inside and shrugged. It was time. While I hate being cold more than anything in the entire world, I LOVE wearing warm, cuddly, fleece-lined things. 🙂
One of my favorite thrift stores has recently done something that leaves me peeved. They have DOUBLED the price of their clothing from $1 to $2. Grrrrrrr! I know that for some of you, especially those who live across the big pond, this is still ridiculously cheap. But a 100% markup? C’mon! Would we let this stand in other areas of our lives???? Like, what if the price of dishwashers suddenly doubled? What then? 😉 Anywho. *angry pout* I found this dress for $2, which is $1 more than I would have preferred to pay for it. 😉
