Flat Tire really got into the spirit of the blog yesterday. I mean, look at that pose! She’s modeling H to T (head to toebeans) for sure.

20151019-IMG_4982

Usually she just wants me to play with her, or she gets real interested in sniffing my shoes. Maybe she’s been taking secret runway lessons with Miss J Alexander.

Speaking of Miss J, did you hear the news about this being the last cycle of ANTM? I’m not coping well. I may sound composed here, but please rest assured that inside, it’s tearing me apart.

20151019-IMG_4985

Clearly once it’s over, it’ll be time for a rewatch of cycles 1 through 19 (20 and 21 still being plenty fresh in my mind). I haven’t seen those since I graduated college and was unemployed for six months!

On an unrelated topic, do you know what this sock/shoe combination reminds me of? Greylag geese.

I mean, right? At least a little? I feel like Tyra would back me up on this.

This outfit was pretty much inevitable, I think. It was just a matter of time.

20151009-IMG_4929

It works, right? I mean, I think it does, and I’m okay if you don’t. Life is a rich tapestry!

20151009-IMG_4932

Honestly, it’s not that surprising a mix to have made, even though it felt really edgy when I was getting dressed this morning. Same-size florals, both with pink/yellow/orange. Like I said, inevitable.

20151009-IMG_4935

did manage to keep from wearing my Labor Day Pow-Wow earrings, which itself feels inevitable every time I wear these pants.

20151009-IMG_4937

Those earrings, these pants, and these sandals. They make a very compelling case for themselves.

For a brief moment we had autumnal weather here, and even–hold the phone–RAIN, so I honored it with a long-sleeved dress.

20151001-IMG_4888

(A long-sleeved dress that needs ironing badly, it would seem.)

20151001-IMG_4890

I also honored fall…somehow…by wearing earrings made of wasp’s nest! Kicky, right?

20151001-IMG_4893

We’re back to 80F and above for the next fortnight, so at least I’ll have time to iron the dress before its next wearing.

I took a few days off from work to try and scare away what felt like an impending cold, and all of a sudden it’s fall and shit?! I’m insulted that nobody asked me first.

20150923-IMG_4806

I can’t dawdle about taking my after-work photos now; these were taken at 6:30 and I had some issues because the light was going. Soon enough I’ll have to do photos in the morning for a few months, so I hope you’re all excited about sleepface and wet hair.

I forgot (read: was too lazy) to put away my jewelry supplies yesterday, so my photo area is a leetle beet messy.

20150826-IMG_4583

I took a long break from making lace jewelry, but I’m back, sort of! I need to renew some listings and get back in the game, but first I’m doing up a few items that I’ve owed friends for, um, an embarrassing length of time.

20150826-IMG_4584

My shop’s been open for eleven months and I’ve made roughly five and a half sales, but hey! I like being creative and learning how to get better at working out designs people will like.

20150826-IMG_4585

I just wish I had more hours in the day so I could go to work, make jewelry, and also get even one other thing done. Maybe I just have too many hobbies.

I’d been planning this top+bottom pairing for a while but only got around to ironing the shirt on Monday.

20150818-IMG_4517

I don’t even dislike ironing–I genuinely find it kind of pleasant, even though it always makes my back sore–but somehow it just never gets done. The iron and board have been sitting out for at least a week now, and I’ve done ironing a grand total of two days.

20150818-IMG_4521

Of course, longer and fuller garments like the Laura Ashley dress or the green maxi-skirt take about a hundred years to finish each, so I’ll grade myself on a curve as far as they’re concerned.

20150818-IMG_4522

It’s a good thing I don’t flatiron my hair anymore, am I right, folks?! Haha, do you get it? Do you? Do you get it? No, but really, do you get it? Do you?

Yeah, you got it.

20150818-IMG_4507

Outtake: lost my balance while doing absolutely nothing. Nice.

I wore this outfit to a family barbecue at my uncle’s house on Saturday, where there was elk roast and the offer of knife fights aplenty! My uncle also made some bomb-ass chocolate rum cupcakes with cream in the center because he is a man of many talents.

20150620-IMG_4247

I got strawberry juice on my shirt and grilled chicken on my skirt, which is how you know it was a good party.

20150620-IMG_4249

The strawberry juice pretty much matches, too. The nice thing about chaotic rainbow patterns is that they hide stains wonderfully!

20150620-IMG_4250

I really like my extended family and I don’t get to see them often enough. One of my cousins-once-removed is living in San Francisco right now, and we promised to go on a sensory deprivation adventure together sometime soon.

20150620-IMG_4251

And after we’re done exploring our souls, maybe petits fours?
