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…

Experimental Friday (Daisy)

Why yes, I am wearing awesome socks.

I bought new legging yesterday, at the wonderful TJ Maxx. And since it was cold today, I figured, let’s try them out!

As I’m sure you can see, the skirt’s a bit too short and so are the socks. So, yes, you can see the grey leggings….but hey, that’s why I chose the brown and grey striped socks! I figure, no one will really notice when I am moving around. And when I’m sitting, you can’t tell. This weekend I’m going to be going on a skirt making marathon, so the next time I do this there will be no legging showing.
