1. MAKERS GONNA MAKE

    twopiece1

    Like my new ink?

    …JK, It’s a fake. I’m kind of in love with temporary tattoos. I think I’m too much of a chicken to get a real one, but being able to change it up and pretend for a while is pretty fun. 

    I whipped this outfit up real fast a few days ago to wear to the Boston Blogger summer soiree. Of course it’s almost the end of summer and I’m just now getting around to making some of the items on my summer sewing to-do list. I’m sooo behind. Here’s to hoping the warm weather sticks around for a while longer so I can get some use out of them.

  2. MIDI

    midi1

    I usually only stick to midi length skirts when they are full and flowy. But something about this dress really caught my eye. And I’m glad I tried it on, because I love it!

    A little reminder that it’s always a good idea to play with new lengths and shapes, even if you don’t think it will work for you. Just give it a shot. You never know.

  4. BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE

    beetlejuice1

    You guys, I started working at LOFT (prudential center. come visit me!) last week, and I’ve already made a few purchases with my discount. These pants came first. But can you blame me?! I think they’re so fantastic. And comfy. And a little crazy. Obviously, that is the perfect combo. 

    P.S - they don’t seem to be available online, but you should check out your local LOFT!

  5. MINTY

    minty1

    After putting this outfit together,  I noticed just how many little mint/turquoise/teal items I have all around me. But it just doesn’t seem to translate into my wardrobe very often. Except for this outfit, of course. Which made me feel very, very happy.

  7. SHOP UPDATE

    shop1

    A quick Etsy update - I recently got my hands on a bunch more of vintage wood spools, and I’ve been making spool necklaces like crazy! I’ve already added a handful to the shop, and I’ll be adding more as I photograph them. Plus, if you’re in the Boston / Worcester area, I’ll be bringing a couple more into Crompton Collective this weekend! 

    Also shop related - Lianna, of Salem Style, has me over on her blog today as part of her Etsy Seller Interview series. Make sure to head on over and check it out :)
