A Day of Disappointments (Daisy)

Posted in Outfits, Sewing with tags , , , , , on October 4, 2010 by Daisy

I really wanted to wear a gray skirt today, so I made one yesterday, from this pattern:

Specifically the green one. Doesn’t it look cute in the picture?

Well, I wore it today.

And it just looks like I have a huge slit up my skirt. It’s a PLEAT, I SWEAR!

And the shoes and pink socks are bad…

And so are the shoes. It was drizzly! I didn’t want to get my cute shoes wet! Anyways, Michelle Obama has those shoes, so it’s okay.

Actually, I got multiple compliments on those socks and shoes. Well, all from the same person, but still.

So, then I went over to Rose’s house. I changed the socks. Purple socks look better. And, my adorable mouse shoes, their debut!

Ah!! What was I thinking?

And then I went on a blind date. I brought Rose along, because I didn’t really want to go. I wore this. The guy was doggedly boring. I took off the socks, thank humanity.

I think I just don’t do well in loose floppy t-shirts. I need them to be more fitted. Everyone was so very nice to me today, today. I hope it wasn’t because I looked silly…

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.

And the rain heralds fall! Maybe? Please? (Daisy)

It rained! Not on me though, I missed it. It was cool out. I wore long sleeves.

And this necklace, which doesn’t match all that great. I couldn’t find the one I wanted to wear. Then I was gonna wear another one, and changed my mind, then changed my mind again and couldn’t find the original one even though I had just put it down.

Skirt: My ownself

Shirt: PacSun

Necklace: Gift from mother

I’m making a plaid skirt! (Daisy)

My outfit is unremarkable today. I mean there’s a neat butterfly on the back of my shirt:

But really? I’m wearing a tank top and shorts, like everyone else on campus….

So! I am using my post today to show you my awesome plaid-skirt-in-progress!

Really, really in progress. I’m not sure what, but SOMEthing was so compelling that I had to get up and leave this skirt right in the middle of a seam. I think I had looked out the window and decided I needed to have an impromptu picnic. Yes, I think that was it.
