{finished} The Lavender Lounge Duster

Greetings you sweater wearing minxes. This make might win the award for longest-held fabric. This sweater knit has been in my stash forever. A sort of dusty lavender in a maybe 6x6 commercial knit. I've never loved it I don't know why I bought it initially. Likely, I...

{finished} Tina Given’s Patricia Skirt and Tunic

Today I've got a few more entries for my Spring Sudoku Wardrobe Capsule, perfect for you sleepy orange kitty cats! This post is a two-for-one... and both of these pieces weren't in my original plan. Initially I knew I wanted to make my lime green linen into a cute,...

{9.26 | clever or got dressed in the dark?}

I couldn't decide all day long if I loved the pattern mixing going on today or if I looked like a crazy lady. It's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the dress is grey, black, white and purple; the sweater is grape and fuschia. I think it's a go... dress - Target,...

The shoe fairy loves me.

Greetings all you sub-par tinkerbells. Today I just have a short tale of a retail MIRACLE!! Unlike the rest of blogland, I've only been half paying attention to the Missoni for Target hub-bub. I knew it was coming, in fact, I had a vague idea that it was here, thanks...

{9.2 | Summer’s last gasp}

It's oddly still summery and warm here, but I can read a calendar and know that that's going to change pretty fast, so I'm enjoying the white skirt weather while it's still appropriate! Plus, polka dots are a neutral, right? shirt: handmade, blogged here skirt:...

{8.29 | Island goodness. For fall.}

I always wear wood jewelery with this green dress and feel quite ready for an island retreat. Today I thought it would be a bit cooler, so I added boots and a jacket. That just made me feel confused. Also, while straightening my hair this morning I got a bit spooked...
