I spend a lot of time thinking about clothing, planning wardrobes and individual pieces, sewing clothing and refashioning old clothes into something special. You might expect that I would dress the part of the fashionista...but no. I have days for which the title of Everyday Fashionista is perfect. Here is today's look.
here, has challenged her readers to wear at least one self stitched article of clothing for every day of September. In the pic above, I'm wearing pants I bought in Santa Cruz, old Sketchers, a very roomy top made from Simplicity 3790 and carrying my favorite leather bag decorated with elephants. This high fashion shot shows EXACTLY what my life is really like-I wore this today as I would be doing a lot of errands: to the bank, then the car repair shop, then to the grocery store for dairy yummies, then to lunch with a friend, quick clean up in the kitchen, off to the post office and finally a chance to sit down and sew. whew! Thank goodness for everyday clothing... :-)
