A month flew by since my last post and I have been plagued by issues with computers! My personal laptop won’t allow me to log in although I typed in the correct password, so I was using G’s spare laptop until it decided to go crazy on me. G has since fixed my personal laptop thankfully, but most of my pictures were on his laptop. It’s been a fun ordeal but almost everything is sorted now although I no longer have access to Photoshop just as I was getting back into the groove. Harumph! Well, G reckons a new laptop is in the horizon.
On a happier note, I have been practicing my sewing and I have since upcycled a dress into a peplum top, sewed a top out of vintage scarves, and hemmed G’s jeans into shorts. The first two were done with help from my instructors in class, since I’m still a newbie. I have also made some cushion covers as my first sewing project. I recently wore the top I made from vintage scarves out to lunch with G,which is the highlight of this outfit.
Here’s another outfit wearing the ZARA Wool Dress (first worn here) that you lovely readers chimed in on here. I’m definitely loving this dress and am glad to have kept it! Looking forward to wearing it many more Fall and Winters to come. I’m pairing the dress with some green in hopes of Spring coming soon.
Happy 4th to my fellow readers here in the US! In the spirit of American Independence Day, I decided to don red, white and blue for my outfit to run errands earlier this morning. I’ll also be wearing the same outfit this evening for a gathering at a friend’s place for some food and fireworks.
When I saw Marionberry’s trend of the month link up was yellow, I had an outfit in mind that I would wear and post. Somehow, the yellow top that I had in mind can’t be found anywhere. Gremlins, anyone? My only other yellow top was the DvF for Gap Kids printed top, so I tried to make that work appropriate by layering that under my new tweed jacket. I felt something was amiss still and decided to layer yet another blouse underneath the yellow top. In my experiments with mixing prints and patterns, I’ve come to realize that polka dots works as a great neutral, so here’s my second outfit featuring polka dots and print! (the first was here.) You can check out the other yellow outfits from the link up here.
I love this Gap dress from last Summer and I awaited patiently for the item to go on sale. Alas, when it was marked down to a price I’d pay for, it was sold out online and I couldn’t find it in stores. Well, you know this story has a good ending since I am wearing the dress. Few weeks later, I found the dress in my size nestled in the sale section at the Gap store near work. It was the only size left and since the zipper was broken, I was able to get an additional 20% off on top of the extra 30% off sale items! Score! (It came up to about $21 with tax)
I tried to get the zipper replaced here but almost every place I went was going to charge me betwen $15 to $30 for it. Since I knew I was going back to KL, I waited to bring the dress home with me to have it fixed. So, almost a year later, here’s the dress finally making it’s debut and I’m linking this post with Mix & Match Fashion‘s What I Wore to Work.
