well we've got one week of may under our (possibly self-made) belts! i'll be doing my "week in review" posts on saturdays, since my work week is technically tuesday through saturday and thats just how my brain works. i'm still contemplating if i want to photograph myself on the weekends. i might leave that optional...
so... me-made-may totally took me by surprise on tuesday morning! for all my posts and putting little gadgets in my sidebar and such, i found myself woefully unprepared! at 8am on tuesday morning i was lazily flicking through my blog reader when i came to zoe's "happy me-made-may" announcement and i exclaimed "shut the front door!! is it may first?!?" to my husband who just raised an eyebrow in the affirmative. dammit! i hadn't done my laundry! and i was really hoping that one zit would heal before i had to start taking pictures of myself daily...
ah well, thats part of the lure of participating in (and seeing everyone else's) me-made-may challenges, isn't it? its a bit of the "warts (zits) and all" thing. so without further ado, here's my un-momentous opening act to the me-made month!
top: jcrew jackie cardigan in navy
skirt: silk midi skirt, blogged here
where: to work, where it is very cold because of the blasting a/c!
dress: self-made (and self-drafted) yellow striped handkerchief hem dress. made about a year ago, never blogged.
sunnies: rayban (my one and only, signature pair)
where: to work, for a very busy day filled with meetings and appointments that left me in no mood to have my picture taken!
top: urban outfitters (kimchi & blue)
where: to work, to run errands.
top: not sure anymore...possibly jcrew? or urban outfitters? its super old...
jeans: new!! self-made stove pipe skinnies, modified from the built by wendy simplicity pattern. a proper blog post to come soon (because i'm super excited about them exclamation pointssss)
shoes: can't really see them but they're the same frye sandals from up above and down below.
hat: from a random beach store here on the island
where: to work for a day where, as is often the case with my job, i needed to be able to get a bit dirty.
top: self-made, rachel comey for vogue patterns. blogged here
jeans: self-made, stovepipe jeans, same as above (i'm obsessed with them!)
shoesies: my comfy frye sandals
where: to work for a quiet day.
and thats it my friends! as i've more than hinted, i'm pretty psyched about my new jeans. they will be getting their own post shortly. also, for all of you that asked for tips on working with delicate fabrics, a post is in the works! i'm just trying to figure out the best way to do it because sometimes, ya know, pictures just don't cut it. so i'm looking into (gulp) video... yeah. we'll see....
i hope everyone had a good may day and me-made-may week one!
