You will please excuse the lack of posting around here recently. As I mentioned in my last post, I have begun my semi-annual housesitting at the home of my friends S and T and have spent most of my time in the following manner:

Remember several years ago when I set myself a little sewing challenge? Probably not. At any rate, I came oh so close to finishing the required number of garments in the alloted amount of time, but not quite. Anyway, I realized that when I finally did finish the last piece (about a year ago), I never bothered to photograph it. So here it is. I also devoted a bit of time this week to hemming these trousers which were favorites of mine in high school, but had since become quite shabby around the edges. They're still a bit too big for me and I was forced to make a quick trip to UO before work to pick up a belt lest I spend my shift clutching the waistband.
Here we have the dressed down, before work version where I have folded over the waistband thus avoiding the necessity of a belt.

This outfit came about whilst chatting with Mr. B. I believe he was commenting on my recent penchant for the baggy trousers look and I told him that today I was back in my skinny jeans and thrifted snoopy T. "Ah, the 'off-duty model' look" was his reply and thus followed a discussion on the concept of said look which we decided consists of skinny jeans, old T-shirt, great (but possibly outrageous) shoes, messy up-do, and large scarf. I thought maybe giant sunglasses and some ethnic jewelry might round out the look. I promised him that I was going to rock my best off-duty model look for the rest of the day and here you have it. Unfortunately the camera battery died before I was able to turn my sweater here into a convincing infinity scarf which I think really completed the look (also my jeans could stand to be a bit tighter and more distressed).

Tonight I learned firsthand how very hard it is to photograph your own hands without the use of a tripod or other such device.
And here, I have resorted to good old Photobooth.
Yes, my hands are not the most beautiful or feminine in the world, but they can create all sorts of wonderful things which to me is infinitely more important and for that I love them.
