Weird stinky jacket

What I Wore to Work Today: September 2, 2014
Jacket: Goodwill, $1 Thursday refashioned
Tshirt: Target
Skirt: Ann Taylor
Belt: Target
Shoes: Payless

I bought this jacket from Goodwill for a dollar. I cut off the fringe on the lapel and the pockets. I wore it once and then sent it back to Goodwill because it turns out it had a weird smell and I wasn’t particularly fond of it even if it didn’t, you know, smell weird.

And yes, we jumped forward six months, you noticed that too! And I got a haircut in July. And I started seeing somebody who skateboards and left an old board on my balcony until I finally threw it away when it became clear that no, he wasn’t actually going to do something arty with that board and if he did want to do an art project he’d have another old board a month or two later anyway.

This was one of the first dresses that I refashioned when my refashioning took a leap into dresses in 2010. (RIP Wardrobe Refashion.)

Making progress – October is here!

2013_10_01
What I Wore to Work Today: October 1, 2013
Shirt: Taken during a friend’s closet cleanout
Pants: Goodwill, refashioned

These pants are gone and the shirt is going in the giveaway basket when it comes out of the laundry. I like how it looks but when I wore this week (this week in real time, not still-2013-picture-time) the metallic threads irritated my skin. Maybe somebody else won’t experience the same sensitivity.

Stay strong, friends, we’re making progress! We’ve made it to October, a new month! Eventually we’ll be looking at 2014 pictures and then finally, god willing, 2015!! I am going to start mixing in quilt pictures too, because I transferred photos from my camera and found the stack of finished quilt pictures. I forgot that my assistant gamely spent 20 minutes holding quilt after quilt so I could start sending them off. Which I did for a few. But, uh, there are definitely 6 quilts folded neatly on my dining table right now. Hey, at least they’re folded. They were in a messy stack for the few months before that.

2015 has been about taking care of little tasks that have been waiting for a long time. Pretty soon I’ll be at a point when I can make decisions about the direction of this blog, which has a devoted readership of at least one person (hi Mom!). Also, maybe I can figure out why some of the pictures aren’t showing up Feedly. (Googler Reader, still missing you…) Until then, we’re working through the backlog.

Bought from the internet

2013_09_30 cardiganWhat I Wore to Work Today: September 30, 2013
Cardigan: Target
Tshirt: Target
Skirt: Conversation Pieces
Shoes: Payless

I bought this skirt from Conversation Pieces after seeing it on Putting Me Together. She warned in her post that the skirt ran small and I wish I had purchased a size larger. I’ve only worn it a few times when I’m at the very bottom of my weight range and feel up to sucking it in all day. This is the only time so far that I’ve bought something immediately upon seeing it on a blog, and I clicked through using her link in case she was getting affiliate payments or anything. I wanted her to get credit. See, she even provides examples of different ways to wear this skirt! I won’t give up on it yet!
2013_09_30I shortened the skirt by a couple inches and closed half of the slit, which went way too high in the back for a skirt I wanted to wear to work. Here’s the Before showing the original knee-covering length.

Blouse: Target, slimmed
Skirt: Goodwill, shortened

Hey look it’s another post! Still with the same font though, and who knows what’s happening with these posts in readers like Feedly. (Pictures show up with odd placement on a laptop version and not at all on the app so far…) But hey, it’s another one. Add a third and we’ll have a pattern.

Questionable choice

2013_07_07

What I Wore to Work Today: July 7, 2013
Dress: Target, shortened
Belt: Target
Shoes: Payless

We all make choices that we look back on and say “You know, I wouldn’t make that same choice again”. This picture is one of those choices for me. I can’t say I would wear this dress with that belt and those shoes again. Shortening the dress a few inches? That decision I stand by.

This was my half-birthday! 31 1/2! Yee-ha! Six months from then, and several weeks from now, I turn 32. Yep. If I’ve learned anything from the internet, it’s a special, special age.

Lace pick-me-up

Jacket: T.J. Maxx
Dress: Ross
Belt: Target
Shoes: Target

I picked up this lace jacket at a T.J. Maxx in Park City, UT the day before New Year’s Eve when a friend was shopping for something sparkly for the next night. I wasn’t planning on shopping for myself and I walked away with a jacket and a pair of sneakers. Pleasant surprise.

HOCKEY!

Hockey is back! The first regular season game was/is October 3 against the Vancouver Canucks. I’m listening to the game as I type this on Thursday night, so it’s like time travel that this post isn’t going live until Saturday. Don’t tell me if the Sharks win/won, I want to be surprised.
