some other spring






Outfit Details:
floral dress - gift from A.Y. Not Dead
50s cardigan - thrifted
tights - Target
MAC clutch - gift from Rebecca Minkoff
silk wrapped beads - from my mom's store, Hourglass Consignment
vintage costume rings - gifts from my mom (also from her store)
initial ring - gift from my step-grandma
Fioni fuchsia heels - gift from Payless
lipstick - MAC Girl About Town

I've already worn this dress a few times since I got it; it has been a definite pick-me-up for those not-so-Springish days we were experiencing. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, I'm looking forward to wearing it with bare legs and strappy sandals - but first, I have to get over this ridiculous sickness! I am no longer going to claim that I'm on the up and up, because every time I say it, I end up feeling worse and setting myself back. I'm trying to rest but I have so much sewing to do. This is when my childhood ambition of being Snow White would really come in handy. Try as I may, I can't seem to get the woodland creatures - or even my own - to help me with anything.

  35. Have you ever hear of colloidal silver? I get it from whole foods ( live less than a mile away from one) and it's a natural antiseptic and disinfectant. I usually take it right when i feel something coming on. It even helped my mom and I with food poisoning. You shouldn't take it daily more than 10 days at a time though. this is the brand my husband and I use from whole foods:

    i hope you feel better. Rest is needed!

  38. Bright, colorful, fun--and the proportions here look fantastic on you!

    Disney has lied to us about the helpfulness of woodland creatures in sewing. I've had mice, and let me tell you, they do exactly the opposite of help. (My many hole-riddled shirts can attest to this!)

  39. Keiko, I've been looking for inspiration to recreate my wardrobe when I stumbled upon your blog. I love your sense of style and your talent for layering different elements. You're inspiring me to try different things, although I can't quite get away with the same clothes and colors that you do. Thanks so much for sharing your style!
