A case of mistaken identity (Daisy)

I decided that today I was going to wear something I hadn’t worn in a very long time. So, I present to you the Repugnant Outfit of Rosy Doom!

The print….it’s so…..sinister, malicious almost. I frightened so many people.

Fittingly, this whole outfit came from the Scary JCPenney Warehouse of Grayness, which Rose has yet to write about. I don’t actually like the skirt so much, asides from the print. It’s just so……floppy.

On a happier subject, I am almost done with my plaid skirt! I am going to make a shirt that goes with it out this blue cotton rib fabric, which I just barely have enough of. Then I will have an Outfit. I have an Event next week that desperately needs an Outfit.

And here is the pattern for the shirt it is going to be. View D, the green one, but with shorter sleeves.


Fall is Here, Day 2 (Rose)

Mmm…fall. Time for tights. And boots. And…ludicrous puffy white skirts with things sewn onto them?

Please excuse the particularly goofy face and the quite-visible bed. I was taking these in a hurry before class.

Lacy tank: Converse for Target

Skirt: Sewed it my ownself, from some rags of cheesecloth-y material. My friend Grace added some random buttons and cloth flowers for effect.

Tights: TJ Maxx (Gift from mother)

Combat Boots: Doc Martens

This song seems very fall to me. And by that I mean autumn, the time of year where it starts to seem like a really good idea to set things on fire and dress in dingy colors and smash guitars.

I went to the wedding of my mom’s 70 year-old cousin yesterday. I haven’t been to wedding since I was a kid. And never to a wedding of an elderly couple. It was delightful.

This outfit is exciting because not only is it very 50s with the full skirt and pearls, but I made the whole thing myself.

Then, after the wedding, my mother and I went fabric and junk shopping. I want everyone to admire this giant pile of fabric that is going to be made into fall clothes, and the box of old patterns that my mom’s friend bought at a thrift store.

I also have a new necklace from this awesome store.

Anyways, for all of this shopping, I wore this:

Theeeeenn I went to a party at Rose’s place , in which a giant blanket fort was constructed in Rose’s living room, and we all sat on the floor and ate macaroni and cheese (them)  and vegan tomato soup (me and them), while watching an epic movie about a dwarf named Willow trying to protect a cute redheaded baby from something or another. I wore these pants:
