What I Wore: Little Black Dress as Skirt


My thing lately has been wearing tanks/shirts over dresses. In particular, this black sundress number I picked up from the Langford Market booth at TxSC prom. I think this is the fourth tank I’ve layered over it. I like it, but of the tanks I’ve layered with it I don’t think it’s my favorite. The others are in the laundry, though, so that’s that. Ian didn’t even realize the first two times that it was a dress underneath until I told him. Just more proof that a LBD is a very versatile wardrobe item. 🙂

Also, I’m not bothering to do much with my hair these days because the second I step outside it deflates. 100+ heat will do that to a girl. Not that I get all fancy with my hair often anyway, but a basic ponytail is the lowest rung on the hair-doing-things ladder.

Let’s see, news, news. I have a big project heading to the printer today, which means I’ll be holding a lovely print copy and accompanying big check in my hands soon. Yay! And I just sent off drafts of a book cover earlier this week. I love me some print design, can you tell? Also, it’s date night tonight, which is always a good thing. So, all in all, quite a good week so far. 😀

What I Wore: Floral Twist

There’s something quintessentially summer about a good maxi skirt. This particular skirt has quickly become one of my favorites. It’s from Honey & Lace, which has a bunch of cute options. And no I’m not being paid/compensated to say that, I just think their selection is great (and constantly updated!). I wore this outfit around on Monday, doing house and work-from-home stuff, and then out to the movies with some friends. I just love the print on this one. There’s so many colors in the floral that it’s easy to pair a top with it. And, of course, it’s extremely […]

Craftily Saving a Swap

Once upon a time there was a girl who went to a clothing swap and was lucky enough to find a gorgeous dress in her size. She loved the dress…   …until she got it home and tried it on fully and noticed a problem.   She decided to salvage what she could of this garment and turn it into a shirt.   And so she did.   Any interesting items you’ve salvaged lately, readers?
