Introducing Laurel #3! It's a vice versa of my tutti frutti variation and is the most practical of the Laurels. Made-me-may, I'm coming for you.
Speaking of made-me-may, how the heckarooney am I supposed to take photos with winter encroaching?! After repeatedly being beaten home by darkness I ventured into the scary, unchartered territory of artificial light and don't think I'll be up for that every day. How do you take made-me photos?
There's nothing new to say about the Laurel: it's awesome. I still want to make a few tweaks to the fit but this will be my last Laurel for a while. I have a pant-a-palooza to continue (seriously, my sewing table is trés mathematical and exciting right now). I also have my Sew Bossy project to show you, by my Boss's photos are so amazing (look at them!) that I need to give my project the justice of day light.
New shoes! Aren't they amazing? Givenchy. Yeah, I now own Givenchy. I had to look up how to pronounce Givenchy (jee-von-shee if you were wondering) and they were less than 1/4 the original price, but let's just keep that between us, K? I feel like a Goddess when I wear them.
As I've said I have absolutely zero expectation in winning any of the Laurel prize categories because I've gone the practical, quick-fix route, but it's totally a-Ok because I have new garments (hooray!) and eye-candy to the billionth degree. Have you guys been following Colette's flickr group? Here are some of my favourites:
And this is only some. Seriously, screw being a judge of that competition.
So there you have it: a pretty blouse, artificial light, and hopefully the most scatter-brained post to appear on this blog xx
