It's Time for More Crappy Photos

Maybe Santa will bring me a better camera, but for now we're all stuck with a simple Point and Shoot and/or my phone. But at least you get me and not Zillie, right? (cough:cough)

So here's what I wore yesterday, which is the newest Jenna cardigan paired with the Kwik Sew tank and the Butterick "Carolyn" skirt. Love! this skirt. I want two more.


I've been wanting a pinstripe skirt for a while now and I'm so glad it's finally in my closet. I may go back to Hancock's for more of the fabric to make a pair of pants too. It was a steal at only $3.99/yard.


Bought these last night in anticipation of The Big Freeze today. Brrrr! They are very comfy.


I did finish the Hot Patterns Uptown/Downtown Knit Dress last night, motivation rising as the temps kept falling. It was in the THIRTIES people. Good god! This is what I wore today ... Yeah, you can't see the dress very well in these work bathroom cell phone pics, but I like it a lot and it was nice and cozy. New boots, check. Scarf I made last night from scraps of that dress I made and hated, check. And a RTW cardi. Gillian, if you're reading, this is the curved hem RTW cardi I mentioned. Somehow that curve minimizes my hips. I want more of these too. My head looks huge in these pics and I have no chin. Lovely.


 Here I was trying to show more of the dress not hang myself. Not sure it worked out as planned. :-)



And now I'm off to brave the cold again with some dinner out. And tomorrow night is our firm's holiday party for clients, at which I'm "working" (hello overtime!). Everyone says it's lots of fun. I believe them ... the caterers were in all day today setting up bars and food stations all over both of the floors we inhabit in the building. Nice! Staff gets its own party next month.

  1. I'm reading! **waves** Great outfits! And yes, the cardi is good on you! Quick, make a Julia!
    (As it happens, I am also wearing a scarf made of leftover yardage. Yay for having a versatile stash! ;)
    The Hot patterns dress is really tempting me... a bit pricey though, considering usually I just hack and existing TNT... But tempting!
    Oh, and let our weather war continue: it there was snow entirely covering the roads on my drive home, with no lanes visable at all! :P

  8. Love the outfits! You look amazing in all, but I especially love the pinstripe skirt. I might be biased towards pinstripes, though. ;)

    Gorgeous!

  15. Debbie, SO SO cute! I think you do have a style. Not that I could pin it down with words, but you definitely have style.
