{three hour rule}

June 20, 2011 § 1 Comment

I wore this dress yesterday for a few hours, but then changed into a new outfit (more suitable for sunburning) and thought since I’d only worn it for a few hours it was good for another day. I’m completely in love with this dress – I’ve already made two and have a third almost done!

Another beautiful day. With rain. I’m not sure about these shoes. I totally fell in love with them and they came in this nude color and black. Since I already have a few pairs of black flats, I thought to add another color. Yet, strangely, these nude shoes don’t seem to ‘go’ with anything!

This is a favorite skirt of mine! It’s wool and silk tweed with horsehair in the hem, so it’s super twirly! Mr. Bug and I headed over to the neighbor’s house for a grill-out. It was a bit chilly, so bare legs with a cozy skirt and a cardigan were just the ticket!

This skirt is a sample I sewed up for a class. I really love pencil skirts! I think I might shorten this up a bit because the fabric’s a bit thin, but in the meantime, this was a great cheery outfit for a day at work!

Saturday night I headed out to see some of the galleries open for art-a-whirl, followed by dinner at Erte. I decided it’d be a good night for basic black!

I was in love with my jewelry for the evening! I’d wear bracelets up to my shoulders if I could find ones that fit!

I. Love. These. Shoes! First, they’re cheap a good value. And they’re super comfy! I walked allover the place in them. Since I’m 5’9” and these are a good four or five inches, I’m SUPER TALL in them! Fun!

It was a two-skirt day. Before going out for the night I worked at the shop – super busy day and super fun! I worked with an excellent 11 year old sewist – she made an adorable skirt from my favorite fabric!

Oh, sigh. I love this dress! I felt perky and fun all day in it, although for some reason my pink shoes rebeled at work and bit my little pigs, so I switched to flips for running errands! I spent the day at work, getting new sunglasses (sigh, a 10 day wait for them to come in!) and taking poor Lucy the hound to the vet. She’s been chewed up by mysterious bugs and is currently taking 50 mg of benadryl twice a day. Sleepy hound!
