Into the sunlight

This time of year, between, say 8:10 and 8:35-ish in the evening on a clear day, the sun turns everything a very lovely soft golden color--so I cajoled FriendBoy into taking some pictures.Forever21 tank, vintage skirt and belt, Ash shoes, bracelets from street vendorNote the skirt from the flowered Madea-wannabe set I picked up at the theater warehouse sale. I thought about shortening it, but I'm really enjoying it as a long skirt....

Sew Good

I finished another project! I bought this satin brocade suit at one of my favorite thrift haunts last year, and realized I hadn't taken full advantage of it due to the ill-fitting skirt. In a rare fit of domesticity, I decided to take it in myself instead of spending another 11 months pretending I'd take it to the tailor "someday." Since I'm not clever enough to thread my sewing machine (the whole bobbin-catching-thread thing never...

Current Obsessions: Friday the 13th

You know, to be polite.Completed a really simple DIY alteration I've been meaning to take care of for over a year:I did something easy, removing the lace collar from a puff-sleeved linen blazer. I'm sort of (but only sort of) ashamed...

Hippie Trip

I found this dress at a random thrift store last year, but put off wearing it "until I get it altered." Yeah, right. Like that was gonna happen. Though I decided to forgo alterations, there are a few snags/holes in the crocheted bodice. Despite my amazing DIY skills,  I have no experience with needlework, so I did the next best thing: I covered the largest hole with a floral pin left over from my...

Warehouse sale winnings

Last weekend, I hit the warehouse sale put on by The Drama Workshop (thanks to Kasmira for the heads up!) and managed to snag a few pieces, my favorite being the long tweed duster and matching trousers that make me feel like a cross between Sherlock Holmes and an Yves St. Laurent devotee circa 1987. I seriously cannot wait to rock this look when the weather cools off! I picked up another set, too:...
