winter blahs

I've been kind of in a funk lately (and no, not because of Fall Out Boy! lol). I'm sure its a combination of the gray weather, the million projects, and the minor annoyances I've recently had to deal with, and therefore should pass soon... but I would like to speed up the process a bit.
I'm too broke to go shopping anymore, so I've been making some new things lately in hopes of that cheering me up... so we'll see how that turns out!

Worn Sat, Jan 30th:

cardigan-like thing - Costa Blanca (2009)
3/4 tee - Dynamite (2008)
belt - Thrifted (2010)
jeans - Smart Set (2009)

I've decided to start including the year my items were purchased, (which i totally stole from Orchids in Buttonholes!), because i want to keep track of things like how long i own items for, was the purchase worth the price, and all that kinda jazz. A sorta self-study if you will. I try to restrain my nerdiness... I really do.

Oh! and here's what I've been working on so far:

I've been coveting a vintage-feely lace dress for some time now, but the thrift stores in peterborough really don't have the selection those in a larger city might, and anything i find retail-wise is waaaaaay out of my budget. So here's my attempt. I only hope it turns out half as well as Cut & Sew's recent lace number did. I'm STILL lusting after it!

Worn Sun, Jan. 31st:

plaid shirt - yde (2009)
long sleeved tee - F21 (2009)
jeans - Silver (2007)
boots - Thrifted (2008)

And this is just a random outfit from last Sunday when my to-dos involved sewing, sleeping, and hiding from real work.

On a side note, I recently signed up for flickr, as i like the way the photos look a lot better once they've been uploaded... and have no idea how to use the darn thing. I would be grateful for any form of advice!


  1. Can't wait to see how that turns out!

    Sunday's outfit is too cute.

  2. I think we're all in this winter funk- I hate the winter blues! Wish Spring would come faster. Love these outfits! Espeically love the white cardigan with the green belt- so cute. Can't wait to see how this dress turns out!

  3. I'm so glad that you're also mentioning the year you purchased each item! I love seeing how other bloggers mix new things with older ones. And I love Sunday's plaid! The fit is fantastic.


I'd love to hear from you!
