Busy busy busy...
Have you ever had one of those days in which you race madly from one thing to the next and are receiving phone calls and text messages like on no other day (usually when one is halfway through some transaction or other important thing)
But I still tried to look smart because of a few social things I had happening where I knew everybody else would be looking nice. I'm dying to get back to my sewing machine... it's been a few days since I did any sewing and am now suffering withdrawals... plus the need to get through a small mountain of new fabric from Melbourne (blush!)
This dress has been such a goodie. To think I felt unsure when I first made it... The colour was a departure. I think the simple unfussy sheath style is a look that suits me. It's great to just know one's best looks when you are scrabbling about desperately through the wardrobe. Having a kind of style diary like this blog has helped me with this a lot.
Have you ever made or bought something about which you were a leetle doubtful at first and that later became a mainstay in your wardrobe?
