They’re Not Pants

“They're Not Pants” McCall's 6173 leggings – Making the Flame | Body Positive Sewing & Style

There are two camps on the topic of leggings theory. Some people say they are not pants, some people (clearly) believe they are pants. What is interesting, though, is that — it seems — most people from both groups own and wear leggings. So, can’t we all just get along? *wink* I made yet another […]

Oonapalooza Gone By

I just heard about Oonapalooza on notes from a mad housewife today — what an awesome concept! I had a blast scrolling through all the contributions to the Flickr group. I wish I’d known, and had time to participate, but maybe it will come around again next year! Did you participate? I don’t believe I’ve […]

Well, I finally got around to shooting that look, and with new shoes, to boot. Enjoy! As you can see, this skirt looks wayyy better with […]

The Right Foot, Baby

Last week Monday I started a new assignment, working around $100,000 cars in a neighborhood covered in trash and puke (why yes, I *am* bragging about my hometown). I wanted to dress to impress on my first day, really knock’em dead, but as so often happens my grand plans crumbled into a passable lesser option, […]

Silence Is … Not Sexy

Yikes! I had such grand visions of Sexy Month, and then I couldn’t even post for a week. I can’t change the past, but I can do better moving forward. #SexyWeek is going to be postponed to later in the month, because I definitely want to do that right. Happily, part of the reason I’ve […]
