So I wanted to wear a power suit yesterday. This one is by Vancouver-based designer Jacqueline Conoir. I loved the subtle circle pattern in the fabric, which is more visible in the third photo. It was cool when I went out, but by the time I got home my belt was in my bag and the jacket was flapping open - an in-between season.
The next photo is aspirational.
Freakish Yellow Skirt Update!!
a desert island & naught to sustain LIFE
but the Freakish Yellow Skirt
and the artful talents of her fellow castaways
URGENT CALLS to NASA with blips of YELLOW orbs
spotted by boats buzzing the ISLAND and the freakish delights
dips twirls whoops hollers
not for rescue - for life
tremendous applause to
GO GO NOW!!!!
Such a fun, fun styling of the Freakish Yellow Skirt!! Anna, skirt, ocean - a perfect storm of joy, especially knowing how Anna is a strong woman of art, style, and the sea. Thanks to her husband for his stunning photography. Plus, blogger Kezzie also dropped by to join in the celebration later on and her mum took the best photo. You can see it all on Anna's blog here. Thank you, Anna!
An arty video. Like most fellow bloggers, I wonder from time to time why I keep blogging. So I made a video. If you come here expecting just style or a chuckle, now you'll be even more confused. My world. I filmed most of this last November, by myself, somewhat awkwardly.
AND some upcycling...
I did a post a while ago here about a men's tuxedo shirt I was given and upcycled with basic downsizing and a little redesigning, and thought I may not be done with it; I wasn't. It was missing a monster truck. I cherish this shirt now. The horizontal flaps under the truck transfer are double layers of fabric removed from the side seams.
And these are my upcycled overalls worn with my gold spangles and Fluevog booties. This was a fun project.
PLUS, I met up with Vancouver Barbara and posted her photo on my street style blog here.
I'm going to link up with Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style and Catherine's #iwillwearwhatilike at Not Dressed as Lamb. Maybe I'll see you there!
