Fully In-vested

    |








Back to life, back to reality. Happy Monday ya'll! This past weekend was relaxing. I didn't do too much but I did get dressed and I looked cute while doing it. I'm just kidding! I did some walking around town with Mel and enjoyed the warm weather. This blazer vest I made myself by removing the sleeves and sewing the edges. I tailored the blazer which was thrifted, to my shape so that it would be more fitting and kept my outfit funky by styling it with some destroyed cutoffs and a pair of floral Dr. Martens. Saturday evening we went bowling with some friends and had lots of fun. We were able to bowl about 3 extra games for free because the attendants weren't paying attention. Bowling usually becomes boring after 2 games but since we were sneaking in the extra games it made it more exciting and fun. How did you spend your weekend?

  4. Thank you. I'm lazy too. It usually takes a few weeks for me to finish something but I do eventually get it done. What are you waiting on?

  6. First thing first, that Doc Mart boots - nostalgic! I had a pair many many years ago (plain black) and proudly worn them on my first ever trip to the UK.. boy, I was a proud girl rocking those boots :) I wish I could sew so that I could experiment with my clothes like you do like altering my dress for instance.. the top became a totally different piece! Great job and hats off!
