MMM Week 2
S8664, view A. Blouse: Gap (via hand-me-down). Shoes: Enzo Anglioni (I have these in black and also in grey/beige)
Tuesday, Mar 8. Trying to stay comfy on a cold day, while still looking like I mean business at the office. These pants are actually my black jumpsuit, McCalls 8547. I know the length is a little "Star Trek" with these boots, but I actually like how it looks. Sweater: can't recall. Necklace: H&M. Boots: ummm...sorry.

Wednesday, Mar 9. Wearing my Liz. I really love how this blouse turned out. If I look a little perturbed, it's just because I was late for work. Navy pants: Dress Barn. Shoes: Walmart?
Thursday, Mar 10. I planned the entire outfit around the legwarmers, because I've been absolutely dying to wear them ever since I finished them, and they really aren't meant for the office. I took the day off to spend with the twins on their birthday, so I figured it was time to wear the legwarmers. They were even okay with how I looked! I fought my slip all day, though. It's about an inch too long for this dress, and kept peaking out. Dress: Whimsey in Park City. Shoes: thrifted. Jewelry: Lia Sophia.
(Note: the dress is clingy, and I'm just not as slim as I used to be - nothing more than that)
Friday, Mar 11, wearing my boring black skirt, (B5471)for the first time. I have to say, I think it looks better on me than it did on the hanger. It is really a nothing skirt - a couple of rectangles is all - and it's got an elastic waist, too. Totally thoughtless design, but somehow it looks elegant. Go figure. Blouse: Chico's via DI. Shoes: Target. Necklace & Ring: Lia Sophia. Earrings: ummm..... Watch: a Lisa H original (that's one of my fellow bookettes).
Saturday, Mar 12, late in the day. Wearing my yellow knit top (S3759) and hand-knit by me socks, also designed by me. Cardi: Gap via DI.
That wraps up week 2. I still feel a desperate need to get busy in the sewing room, but I just haven't been finding the time. No surprise there - I knew my work schedule would be crazy-busy. I just wish I could finish at least one more piece of clothing before the month is out. Two would be nice.
