Well hey there, lovelies!
So here's a weird thing. I attempted to document what a 'week-in-my-closet' looked like.
Turns out I got bored/distracted/apathetic about the idea after only four outfits.
The days that I did remember to shoot a couple poses may give you a better glimpse into my sense of 'style' (ha, now I'm laughing...)!
Day 1: feeling fancy.
If my hair's down... it means I've showered.
Throw a lace collar on with a cozy owl sweater - a re-fashioned polka dot dress - and cable knit tights.
This was my 'lets go shop for art supplies' outfit.
Day 2: feeling funky
Hair up in a messy bun.
A big bold scarf... my crazy homemade vest with a belt, a shirt with hip-zips... and some cardinal red skinny jeans.
This was my 'time to go to Church' outfit.
Day 3: feeling 'fatigues'
I've said before that I would join a boot-camp just for their wardrobe.
If it's army green.. I'll wear it.
A vintage scarf, light loose cardigan, army shirt, khaki zippered skinnies and some favourite wrist cuffs make this my go-to-style.
This is my 'stay at home mama' outfit... (you know, when I'm not in sweat pants and barefoot in the kitchen).
Day 4: feeling friendly
This is how I dress if the possibility of social interaction presents itself... (i.e: I may escape the house!). Hair down, another vintage scarf, my leopard print wrist warmers, purple cardigan over a plum dress/shirt and my gold corduroys.
This is my 'ready to go' outfit.
Oh yes, and I really was talking on the phone... bet you didn't think I could multi-task!
I can also chew gum and walk at the same time, folks.
Hey look at this - a bonus shot:
Turns out I managed to take 5 shots this past week.
This is my essence-of-Mel shot:
I'm a bit frilly (handmade lace infinity scarf)
a bit frumpy (old man sweater with added elbow pads)
a teensy bit girly (coral tights)
a touch grungy (ripped jeans c/o my ben's closet).
What I realised in doing this post:
I'm always wearing a scarf.
I have an eclectic style.
Most of my outfits include something I've made/re-fashioned.
Also, I feel 80% dork, 20% vain and 20% vapid posing for these shots.
That's 120% premium awkwardness right there.
Let's all breath a collective sigh of relief that this is NOT a fashion blog.
Don't get me wrong.. I love seeing what other bloggers wear... but I think the only time I'll be doing loads of posing around here is just to show what upcycles I've been creating!
