HELLO, I’VE REPAINTED MY DINING ROOM AND MADE A NEW SHIRT TO MATCH. The walls are Pink Sea Salt by Behr, a mention which should be great for my blog’s SEO, and the turtleneck is made from a remnant of black, sparkly sweater knit I used on a gown. Oh and I found a bunch of pleated, peach tubes at the fabric warehouse recently and folded one up and stuck it on the front to attract more attention to myself.
It’s like if Delpozo did a collection of sloppy coffee filter shirts.
Just bought this travertine table. Then I spent a week feeling very sad and stressed that it was going to fall through the floor and onto the condo below us.
We read through a bunch of fish tank and safe forums and all of the contractors and architects on those threads were not at all concerned about 300 lbs, which is what this table weighs.
Now I worry that it will tip off its base and crush someone’s legs.
I am a very chill person.
P.S. I made the tunic underneath too. It’s a long, nightshirt version of my poet blouse, and, friends, there is nothing I’ve ever made that I love more than that damn blouse. I CAN’T STOP WITH IT.
Every time I buy new fabric, I think “Oh! I wonder how this would look as a POET BLOUSE??”
I didn’t have enough of this black, sparkly sweater knit, so I had to go sleeveless. No worries, though, because I CAN STILL WEAR IT WITH A POET BLOUSE.
I’d like to wear it to a party or an art show, but I’ll probably just make love to this table before it ruins my life and call it a day. GOODBYE.
HELLO, I WANTED TO KEEP THIS VERY COMFORTABLE CABLE KNIT SWEATER, SO IN THE SPIRIT OF THIS PROJECT, I EMBELLISHED IT. Veronica Sheaffer/J.Crew COLLAB.
The sweater came free from a friend at a frock swap. Alliteration.
And somehow I gathered all of these faux fur trimmings over the years and had them squirreled away in a box I discovered recently. I roughly matched the cable pattern in the sweater, and did some freeforming along the neckline, shoulder and sleeve.
It’s just a very casual embellishment to luxe things up a bit. Oh hai, madras shorties! Cannot believe I’ve worn you out in public while with my mother-in-law and child.
I hate salad so goddamn much.
But I love this cozy, fur-trimmed sweater. I put it on yesterday to take pictures, and then wore it out partying all night.
Ate a bunch of queso too, which is way better than … salad. Okay, I have to make a million presents now. GOODBYE.
HELLO, HERE IS ANOTHER POST ABOUT MY HOLIDAY PARTY LEGGINGS. Because they were all covered up by my giant Swan Lake tunic, and because I loved them more than I thought I would, and because things started getting weirder and weirder the more I posed in them, well … here you go …
Hey look, it’s my poet blouse! After wearing it practically every time I left my house over the summer, I decided to give it a rest, but when I pulled it out again for today’s shoot, I realized what a fool I’ve been. THIS IS A PERFECT BLOUSE. I WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR IT.
Pants are good too. Super high waisted with inserts at the hips – which look a lot like football player pads, and which were very much not intended, but I had to do something when I realized the fabric had almost no stretch, and I had made them extra-tight, and the seams were literally popping apart as I wore them. HAWT.
I have legs. And I know how to use legs.
I do wish they were slightly less cropped, but they were never supposed to be regular pants. Maybe I’ll just put a seam there and add a little more to the length. I mean, what the hell, they already have weird hip gussets and they are GLITTERY AF. An extra seam at the bottom isn’t going to hurt anyone.
Speaking of, the glitter in this fabric is constantly shedding and leaving little piles on the floor wherever I go. So magical.
Definitely adding like three inches to those hems.
HELLO, I MADE A SEQUINED DRAGON TOP. Late last week, I found a full yard remnant of blue sequined stretch fabric at Jo-ann (of all unholy places). The quality is surprisingly great – not scratchy at all – and set me back a full $7.50. I thought about matching short sleeves, and instead opted for long, silk charmeuse in bright kelly green.
Then I added embroidered dragon appliques, because life is depressing.
The appliques were a family decision, because are they too much? Are they not enough? Can I wear this to dinner, even though I already made plans to go to a Chinese restaurant?
A single covered button in green velvet, because #luxury.
I wore it anyway, and the server noticed immediately and embarrassed me for eternity.
The sleeves and silhouette make this casual enough for jeans, but the sequins make it sequiny enough for everything else.
I really need to start making pants, you guys. GOODBYE.
