So it occurs to me that lately the look of the week has been
very dowdy and tee shirt oriented. And, it is making me kind of sad.
So, I am attempting to refresh my wardrobe with some Guurly items.
And, of course, I have decided that I will just make them myself.
Despite realizing that I am a total tomboy, it all started when I
saw this LA Made dress at Anthropologie.
Without the sash, it is the cutest sack, btw. I love a good sack, mostly
because I am a spindly giraffe. Anyway, I thought to myself about
this dress 1. that I could make it myself and 2. that the neckline,
armhole could really be more current and flattering.
So, I took my most girly new favorite fabric.. most recently seen
as the lining in this...
and made a more flattering little shell with a skinnier strap and
So now I am kind of wondering where to go with the girly-ness..
two more tops from Anthro. I am liking that Asymmetrical
ruffle on the body, how it puffs up dramatically.
There will be buttons up the back and there is the matter of buttons.
I pulled out some fun vintage Grandma buttons from Grandma's
old sewing case and I must say, I am really feeling the
nautical. But, that is just the boy in me struggling to come up
to the surface. resist!
The blue button is pretty sweet it has a huge deep hole in the middle and
the outside is shaped like a 70s fondue pot.
The most disturbing part of this girly inspiration was that I am having this
sick Lilly Pulitzer fixation on making a matching top for my daughter.
yar. I will probably get too lazy, don't worry.
