What I Wore Wednesday

So I was driving to work-y stuff today, though Detroit, and I came across this dewd strutting proudly across the street like he didn't give a good American darn. When he got to the Boulevard and the light turned red and there was no one behind me I snatched this photo. DETROIT IS SO COOL!!... Continue Reading →

Print on print/ brown on brown

On Sunday I went to mass and some teenagers were doing a great job lectoring. Homegirl second reading (I think) went up to the ambo with a polka dot shirt and a striped skirt and I was like, "Shut the door, girl, you're making it count." Because all of the people know that I'm pro... Continue Reading →

Fake it ’til you make it

I will not go there. But I... Continue Reading →

What I Wore Wednesday

You know what we haven't done in a very long time? Not since over a month ago, actually? A "What I Wore Wednesday." High time or high time? Yes, indeed, high time. Shall we start with the skirt? It kind of pops out and grabs the attention, so that's where we'll start. I bought that... Continue Reading →

What I Wore Wednesday–my newest skirt

This is it. This is the corduroy skirt that took a bit o' emotional energy and real-life energy with it. Vintage pattern missing from the envelope, me making up a pocket pattern, me accidentally cutting something improperly with the fabric-pattern facing the wrong way...whew. No one said it was easy. I'm typing as my friend... Continue Reading →
