I was not that impressed with this outfit, but Pilar commented that she liked it at work, and Nathan asked me to wear it to meet friends that night. And in looking at the pictures, I’m not sure what I was unimpressed with!
I am actually kind of sick of that blouse, it has this big bow at the top that I used to REALLY like, but for some reason find myself sick of all of the sudden. But using it as a layering piece worked really well. You still get the pretty pattern and I don’t have to look at that stupid bow.
I have got to get these re-soled ASAP, kids. And the worst part is that the shoe repair place is next door to my office. All I have to do is put the shoes that need repair in my car and stop for 2 minutes to drop them off. I can be such a ditz. (I also have a ton of stuff in my car right now for the tailor. Some of it has been in there for months. )
I made these this weekend and I love them.
But I have no plans to make them for the store because they were such a huge pain in the behind. I got so sick of counting links. They are all uneven on the individual earring, but of course earrings come in pairs, so I had to have two of each length. It was totally worth it for personal use, but I think labor costs would price them out of my stores price point, to be honest. And I’m sure you can get something similar (made of out inferior components though) at Forever 21 or Claires.
This is the other side of the reversible cuff from Trilby Made. I find I want to wear this pretty much everyday. It’s so bold and original and comfortable!
