Remember this gorgeous fabric I instagrammed about? And remember how I started naming my HObags? Just want to make sure you remember everything that has ever gone on in my life. Good. Well look at me I finished her! For some reason the name Zane popped into my head and it stuck. Ok who wants Zane??
I was inspired by all the boxy, big envelop clutches that I covet so much. Although it isn’t as stiff as those, it still holds enough shape to appreciate all those straight lines and edgy corners. UGH this print is jut perfect!
I don’t know why I keep calling this a “boyfriend tee” when really it’s my husband’s, but you get what I mean: a loose, slouchy-fitting top that may or may not have formerly belonged to a boyfriend/husband/male.
Some people can just throw on a big tee and it somehow looks flawless. But I usually have to make a few adjustments here, sew a little there, before it actually works on me.
If you have a sewing machine handy, you can fix those wide shoulders and those longs sleeves to make them more feminine and flattering. More photos & a tutorial after the jump!
I’m excited because we have no weekend plans! Sometimes I love to be anti social, stay in all day, and catch up on Downtown Abbey. Looks like it’ll be one of those weekends.
AKG & I have been invited to an awesome halloween party, and we need a clever costume to wear. Last year I was Hello Kitty, and I tried to convince AKG to go as Dear Daniel (her bf) but he was unwilling to dress up like a kitty. So as much as I am a fan of repeating halloween costumes (I use like the same costume idea for about 3-4 yrs..what??), I need to think of a great, clever, new one. That got me thinking… there are so many couples in stories, movies, and books, who start off with one person, but end up with another. Wouldn’t it be funny to be an unexpected couple??
Pocahontas & Kokoum
Katniss & Gale
Harry Potter and Cho Chang???
What are some other “unexpected couples”?? I’m hitting the wall here…all you clever people, help! I need some more ideas!
