I’m sorry for the lack of daily posts; I’ve been preoccupied with work. Luckily, today was a nice break from the monotonous work week, and I took advantage of the warmer weather. I’m such an old lady with my routines, but it’s nice to have lazy Sunday brunches to look forward to. If only I could get Bobby more into Scrabble. That’s my perfect Sunday. Wow, I am an old lady!

Hopefully, this week will be a little better. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do – but sometimes it’s a little tiring. Since I don’t have a regular work schedule, I end up working through the night, every night. I’ve tried setting hours for myself but it doesn’t work. I always feel like I need to make just one more thing. Oh well! At least I get to watch all of my favorite shows, while I’m sewing.

Now, for the outfit details:

madras dress: thrifted and altered. I shortened the hem, took it in at the waist, let it out at the bust (it had such a weird shape) and added sleeves (made from the extra fabric from the hem.
blue, short sleeve sweater – anthropologie
belt – from my mom’s shop (Hourglass Consignment in Margate, Florida)
tights – target
bag – I wish I had a detail shot of this; it’s so cute! My little sister Tessa bought this for me at a thrift store, when she was 7 or 8 years old:)
vintage heels – beacon’s closet
flowers in my hair – I sewed fake flowers onto a felted bobby pin

    Oh my gosh, Keiko, it's Rachel who long ago sold some re-made tees on your site, and I just saw your name on Sally/Already Pretty's blogroll! Small world (OK, big internet world, but I love coincidences still.)

    Lovely blog, lovely clothes (duh)…I love that blue cardie, what cool detailing. Oh and of course it's Anthropologie and I just finished writing about Anthropologie. Funny funny.

    Anyway, looks like you're doing fabulously & I'm glad!

    You are too cute, so are your clothes. You should try out for Project Runway I’m sure you’d make the cut for the show!! 😀

    I can’t get my husband into scrabble either…
    he says I’m too good and he’ll just lose anyway. :)
    I don’t think it’s a fair cop out, because I still play chess with him even though I really have no idea how to create a strategy in that game!

    Scrabble is so good. We had excellent weather here in Chicago too. It was nice to only wear one pair of tights! Your hair looks adorable here :)

    Denishabeybeh:

    That’s awesome! I love that you have your own personal silhouette; it suits you well. Are they all one of a kinds or do you have them made to sell?
