Happy 2nd day, everybody! Hope you guys are enjoying this as much as I am!
shirt: me-made Renfrew top
shoes: Converse (’cause I’m so original)
location: right outside my apartment
pug: sold separately
This shirt is the me-made item that I wear the most– it’s just so comfy and easy to wear. It’s a nice
boring basic piece. I’m not much of an accessorizer, and with this dramatic neckline, I can’t really wear a necklace, so my outfit is a little bland, but, oh well.
A few items of business:
A HUGE thank you to Maddie for passing along the Liebster award to me! If you haven’t seen her blog yet, RUN, don’t walk, over there– it’s chock-full of jaw-dropping inspiration photos and some downright amazing tutorials! I’ll be attempting to draft a bodice block this month using her tutorials. Thanks, Maddie!
Next up– the Seamless Pledge. How’s that going, guys? I’m interested to hear your experiences. Sadly, I had to break it last week– I had an unexpected work occasion that I needed to dress up a bit more for, so I broke down and bought a blazer and a buttondown (I’ve never owned a blazer before– silly, right?). I’m a little bummed, but at the same time, the Seamless Pledge is (for me) about awareness and trying to make more responsible choices about buying clothes, not about being crippled when your schedule throws you a curveball. I don’t have the chops (or the time) to tailor a jacket at this stage in my life, and thrifting options are difficult for that sort of thing, so I feel OK about buying a nice, basic blazer that will be in my wardrobe for many, many years. Also, apparently Li’l Miss T-Shirt me Goodwilled all my plain-ish buttondowns! Whoops. Any thoughts or observations on your own Seamless experiences?
