So, I’m not dead.
Great way to start a blog post, huh?
Anyways, I certainly never intended to take a month off from blogging. That’s just what happened with how crazy my personal life has been lately, and my laptop is on the fritz (seriously, I will never buy an HP ever again, and I don’t recommend the brand to anyone, unless you enjoy constant frustration coupled with drinking). Nevertheless, the past month has been quite eventful, and I’ve been documenting with the iPhone. For those interested, here is what I’ve been up to:
- Finally bought a dresssform! I went antiquing with a friend a couple weeks back and there it was, standing outside. The best part was that I only paid $50, which I consider a steal, as most of the similar dressforms I was finding online were at least $175. Now my only problem (besides getting a cat so I can finally be a real seamstress) is coming up with a name for her. I’m thinking Lucy or Daphne, but I’m open to suggestions.
- My best friend got married and I was a bridesmaid!!! This involved a new look for me:
- I also just had my first shoot for AlexSandra’s Vintage Emporium, the vintage shop I’m modeling for. I got to wear some really fabulous shoes . . .
. . . got my hair did in an amazing 60s bouffant by Kristen Behlings, . . .
and tried on AlexSandra’s neat glasses.
Anyways, summer is finally here! I have some really neat vintage events occuring over the next month, and I’m hoping to finally get some more sewing done with the wedding over. I promise you it will not be another month before I post again, ok? Ok.
