Have you ever bought something, and whoever is with you asks what the heck do you want that for ? But you see the possibilities and can't wait to wear it? This is such a purchase! It was too big, and long, but I saw a cool, cropped tribal print dress. Plus, it has pockets.Christina of Second Skin Style has a great knack for seeing the possibilities of a garment, and this is similar to one of her cropped muu muu's. I have always been attracted to cotton "day dresses" and "housecoats". They end up being one-of -a -kind creations. "Limited Edition"s!
MUUMUU : n; ( Moo - Moo )
(1927) A long, loose dress originating in Hawaii and worn for comfort.
( Webster's Dictionary)
My Mom calls these such dresses "house coats". The weather in Cincinnati has been cool, rainy and now humid and is gonna rain again. I put on warm underlings with this dress, only to swelter later in the afternoon. It was worth it, cause I felt great in this outfit all day (minus the sweat trickles down my back). I love men in drag, so I had to post Homer in his muu muu !
This is me, usually around 3 A.M.
I'm trying to venture off the deck. Muddy !
POST # 2 :
This was the day before, and I really didn't do much. In between storms , naps and movies I did pop a few shots of some accessories I made and this neat hand crocheted cardi. I haven't really been inspired as to what to wear it with, so I end up wearing it around the house. I could do jeans and a tank with it.
What would you wear it with ?
I am wearing some silk Gap pants and "vintage" flip-flops from the late 80's. It's so weird to me that stuff from the 80's is considered vintage !!!
The other day I made some bracelets from glass bead I bought during my crafting phase. I got a sunburn that day, but it is already gone :(
Two are for the wrist, and one is for the upper arm.
After these shots, I immediately did a mani / pedi !!! Close-ups can be scary !!!
I always keep unusual shoes. It's a thing :)
This was tricky.
Ahhhhhhh, Much easier !!! I saw a cool image app. on Dirty Hair Halo's blog I can wait to try out! So cool!
I made these when I very first got into crafting (which lasted about 5 minutes), and am not sure what the symbol means, but I hope it's a positive letter !!! I had forgotten all about them, but found them. Yah!
Well, that was my past 2 days. See ya tomorrow !!!
