Good even to you all, dear readers! I have come to claim the last brief minutes that are Today (and maybe a few lingering seconds of Tomorrow) to unburden my soul and tell my deepest secrets.
I almost had you there.
No, for some unknown reason, I have spent the last half an hour hunting for photos and putting together my very first "Look book" designed after my latest, favorite outfit. Although most of the pieces here are merely good replicas or examples of the things I own, I will say that the dress is the same one in my closet- a steal I found at Old Navy. ("Ah ha!" you say "you bought something that is neither second hand or handmade! You have failed the challenge! We have caught you!" Please be aware that I bought the dress before I began my challenge- New Year's Eve, actually- and everything else contributing to the outfit are items I've had for at least six months to a year.)
It's only a rough idea of the outfit I actually wear, and my pieces of jewelry are far better than the ones in the example. The necklace I have is one of my favorite parts- it's a strand of pearls with brass and gold charms dangling from it, and an adjoining shorter brass chain with a rocking horse charm attached. It's oh-so-vintagey and lots of fun to wear.
On that note, I think I had better call it a night and tell you (beg you *cough*) to be here tomorrow for my first ever "How Tues-day" blog post, inspired by the weekly posts on the Etsy Storque. I'll be showing you all how to complete my latest crafty bit, and I'm pretty excited (So excited that I'm staying up until midnight to talk about it!), so be sure to pop in tomorrow on your coffee break (and bring some acrylic paint). Ta ta until tomorrow!
