Me-Made-May '14: Week 16:33 PM
Woo hoo! I wore a handmade item each day this week! Of course, it was only two days :-P. But, I'd say that's a good start.
Day One: Unblogged "Teacup Sorbetto" - Fabric shopping, errands, and a casual dinner. I wanted to start the month with an item I almost never wear: my Colette Sorbetto. I'd love the blue/white china look of this fabric but, it doesn't drape as well as I would have liked and paired with the loose-fitting pattern, it's looks horribly boxy on me, which is not a shape I wear well. I tried something new by tucking it into my jeans and, while it didn't like to stay tucked, I did think it helped with the boxiness. Now, I just need to find something else to tuck it into as I hate how unflattering skinny jeans are. I was a great, comfortable outfit for a bit of shopping though. Grade: B-

Day Two: "Summer Breeze Top" - Lounging and a long walk downtown. This top I do wear but, really only as a running around town or casual day at home kind of top. I really struggle with how to pair it. The empire waistline means I can't tuck it into anything so, boring shorts it is. This year, I rebelled against the white ones I usually wear and tried to liven it up with pink. I'm not sure how I feel about how it looks but, it's was perfect for walking CoCo downtown. Grade: B-

Sidenote: I hate not smiling for photos! But, the front of my face is still swollen and my smile is, um, not presentable after my jaw surgery... braces in 13 days should fix that though :-)
