It's been tough getting back in the saddle, for sure... Being away on vacation was of course delightfully relaxing, and I feel a refreshed perspective and all that! I've been back for a couple of weeks now, and it's been fun pulling out those summer things for a last (first?) fling! So I have a lot to catch up on (but then, I just want to revel in pretty beachy vacation memories too...oh what's a girl to do...)
|Vintage green and pink chevron dress, J Crew wedges, thrifted silk scarf|
Gotta start somewhere I guess. Pulled out this dress from the closet this morning in the knowledge that there was some aspect of tailoring that wasn't quite there (the reason for which I have never worn this beauty, or not much). It fits almost perfectly, it's just the bodice is too long. Which I sewed up a year or so ago. And then discovered mid-day that it was pretty much just tacked together with a few light stitches. Heh. Good thing it was a low-impact desk day! I swear to fix this 40s chevron beauty and wear it at least another time or two before the winter sets in! And get a proper set of photos for her too!
Oh, and it's, like, totally time for a blog makeover. I haven't changed anything in the layout in over two years! Folks, it's time for an update. Suggestions?
