As you know, I always like to get a bit of orange in on the 17th, but this is the first year in longer than I can remember that I actually decided to wear green as well. I used to like to tell people I had Irish immunity because I really believe that if you have lived long enough in Ireland (North or South) you should be allowed to a) listen to U2 without embarrassment and b) skip the green on St. Patrick's Day with impunity.

I have been receiving some complaints recently from one of this blogs most loyal followers about the lack of outfit pictures these days. And while I don't really have the closet space at present to organize a return to the one-new-outfit-a-day format of last year (you'll have to trust me when I say that the logistics of that were a nightmare), from this point forth, I vow to post at least one outfit a week.
This week's look is from my recent trip north to attend my number one friend's wedding reception. The pose and the fruit are the result of a few glasses of wine and a tableful of friends directing the shoot. The blouse, by Vivienne Westwood, was a New Year's present to myself. The skirt is my much loved Alexander McQueen for Target one and man, that thing works wonders on the dance floor.

a few more for my to-do list

I've been saving my Anthropologie catalogs for years with a mind to knocking off some of their pieces (purely as a patternmaking exercise mind you) and then I noticed the wealth of diy tutorials online lately inspired by "the evil store" and since I've been pretty broke lately I thought I might try some of these out
