It is hard to believe that it has been almost three whole months since my last post! Oops. Time flies when you’re having fun? But here I am, again – with an outfit!
Blouse: eShakti,”Swan print chiffon top”, custom size
Skirt: eShakti, “Her fifties colorblock skirt”, custom size
Cardigan: Old Navy, XXL
Shoes: Steve Madden, via Barefoot Tess, size 11
Earrings/bracelet: gifts from family
Hat: Target, Summer 2013
I’ve been blessed to meet a bunch of great people in Houston. I feel like I’ve known them for several years… but in reality, it’s only been a little over one year! Why is this relevant?
These women inspire me in various ways. Some of them are amazing crafters, that inspire me to finish my own projects. Others are go-getters, that set goals, get shit done and generally kick ass. Some are so nice and sweet, I start to wonder why they’re friends with me… Or all of the above! Either way, these ladies are awesome and I am proud to call them friends.
I think most of them read my blog on occasion, and have made subtle hints that I need to update… but the one that stuck in my mind is:
“Bitch, you need to update your blog!”
Each time I wear something awesome, her voice runs through my head. It’s kind of hilarious. Since the weather is cooling down, I decided to stop, snap some pictures and update my blog – as ordered. Mission accomplished!
My eShakti pieces have been getting a lot of wear lately, especially this skirt. I’ve wanted it for ages, and finally took the plunge this summer. I think I’ve worn it four times in the last two weeks. The custom sizing is off on both pieces, but they’re wearable. One of these days I’ll bring my pile of clothes to the tailor… but until then, I’ll manage.
Speaking of managing… I’ve finally managed to make my mark – a blue (ink?) smudge on one of the white stripes… doh! Maybe it’s time for a visit to the dry cleaner?
Anything with an animal print catches my attention these days, so I paired my beloved skirt with the printed blouse. A little quirky pattern mixing never hurt anybody!
How you do you feel about the animal prints popping up lately? Love it or leave it?
