Well I’m still managing to wear something different each day. Don’t think it’ll last much longer, I’m running out of outfits!
My self-drafted skirt, blogged about here. I love this skirt and wear it a lot. It’s warm and it’s so cheerful that I think it’ll be going into the autumn to keep me happy when the grotty weather comes. Oh and this is why we don’t have date-stamps at work – we have these self-issue units which the public use to issue their books and DVDs, etc out.
Oh I had a bad day today. I was full of cold and felt awful. I’m surprised I managed to smile for this. I’m wearing my new Sorbetto, I’m quite chuffed with the comments I’ve had. It’s a real 80’s pattern, but it’s so cheerful and colourful that loads said how nice it looked. Perhaps it might stay in the wardrobe yet!!
OK, so it had got cold, so out come the warmer clothes. This green top (yes it is green) was also made about four years ago from another Prima pattern. It’s a lovely bottle green satin. It actually has 3/4 sleeves, but the air-con made the library freezing and so the cardigan stayed on all day! For those interested, the bottom half was a pair of black trousers.
I planned ages ago to go up to London today. So this was my shopping outfit! I went off to Goldhawk Road and bought loads (some described yesterday). This dress is years old. I made it about eleven years ago (yes 11!) for a friends’ wedding. The colour has hardly faded and it’s so comfy. It was hidden away for years as I lived with someone who hated it, but I never had the heart to throw it out. I’m so glad I didn’t. It’s getting a new lease of life and adding a belt to it really works. I still have the pattern upstairs, so I’ll write a post about it one day (with one of the original photos!!)
Phew! The end of another week. This is the top I blogged about here. We had family round today for Sunday lunch and I’m full with roast beef and trimmings, followed by blackberry and apple crumble with custard – yummy! It’s also possibly why I look quite fat!! 🙂 Fortunately the weather has got a bit warmer and again I can wear some summery clothes!
Here’s to the next week, we’ll soon be over half way through! It’s gone so fast and it’s really lovely seeing others creations.
