Hello party people of the internet! I’m moving into a new place which means I’ve been without internet until today. I now feel super connected, the internet is wonderful. Never leave me, internet. As a result, I’ve not been doing much making of things, but I have been doing wearing of things. I mean, of course I have, I’m not an animal.
I call this look ‘Ok all of my stuff is everywhere on the floor but I have to leave the house to work out the bins I can’t look too terrible I guess’ It’s pretty simple but does include a dearly beloved wool cashmere angora coat and some of the most stylish trousers to ever feature an elastic waistband.
Look, the sun! Don’t stare directly at it, it might get shy and go away again. I love my new Docs but I wish they weren’t still at the destroy your feet stage.
This brooch was my mum’s and shows that she is a member of the Puffin books club. It’s so cute.
My second look here is called ‘Ok I won’t be wearing these shoes out because they hurt but I still think they look good so let’s pretend it’s part of the outfit’.
Here you can see one of the patches I’ve put on the jeans where a hole appeared. It’s a spotty fabric, and I like them.
So, this leads me onto the second part of my post. Now, I don’t have a huge stash of fabric/ wool, but moving made me realise it’s still too big. So, I have decided that until I work my way through my existing collection, I am not to buy any new wool or fabric. I will allow zips, buttons, etc, if that’s needed to be able to use what I already have, but I’m hoping the restriction will force me to look and actually use what I have, rather than let them languish in a cupboard.
That’s it for now, see you again next time!
