“that style can be healing. If you wear beautiful things and live a creative life you will feel better and be more joyful.” — Advanced Style blog I want to be these women.
My favorite quotes from the Wall Street Journal article on Ms. Wintour. “She didn’t need my authority to do it—she has a remarkable ability to impose her will. If I had had reservations, she probably would have gone ahead anyway.” During a trip to China last fall, she was asked during a press conference whether she was really like that. “It’s true, of course,...

project 2: beach times
mistakes I made on this bag: cut it too big. luckily, this is better than cutting it too small. when you are thinking of what size tote bag you’d like, be sure you really know how big it is. I measured it too tall at first, and had to cut the fabric in the middle of making my bag, but before I sewed the lining and outer fabric together. don’t be like me, measure twice, cut once. I...
First, everyone needs to go to The Diamond bar in Greenpoint and tell owner/bartender/suffleboard partner Dave i said hi. Then go down to Paulie Gee’s to eat pizza and tell Paulie Gee the pizza is amazing when he swings by your table. You know, just if you’re looking for something to do. I am almost done with project number two, I really want to post it soon so I’ll try to...

hey heyyy here goes. I totes made a tote. Looks good, yeah? (this was before I ironed it, don’t tell my mom) To begin, I drew on my (only) sewing experience of making a tote bag with lining. I mostly followed these instructions from the Purl Bee for a tote bag, but added some things of my own. OK, lining. I just added lining. Because it’s pretty. Now, I made two mistakes and...
After studying the manual and getting some thread, there was nothing left except to thread the machine. So that is exactly what I did. I’m going to start with a tote bag. I found some fabric that immediately made me think of a friend whose birthday is in a few months. Little does she know, her present will be my first project. I think the yellow thread will just go smashingly with the...
It’s here! Sewing machine arrived last night in about a bajillion packing peanuts. It’s gorgeous, of course. Today I’ll be picking up some of the last supplies I need to get going! Look for pics while I’m out and about.

Two pieces of good news: I wore my new jacket and received compliments. OK, one compliment. From my friend at work who I talked up my jacket to. But you know what, I’m stoked about it anyway. (outfit was black skinny pants, black sweater, jacket, nude heels) According to my sources (aka my parents who are sending it to me) the sewing machine should arrive somewhere around Friday. GET...
