One more . . .

This one is dear to my heart, as the strips are cut from a bandanna I 
tie-dyed at camp when I was 12.
good times.

More Wovens

Another woven t-shirt. Not sure why it's wrinkling like that...? I think this would be especially cute with some high-waisted shorts for the summer. Once the Vancouver weather decides to co-operate with the season.

Fashion and Destruction

I've decided to make more woven shirts even though none have sold yet. This one is inspired by the army colours out right now and the Balmain shirt Daria wore on the runway.

Apparently, Bikini = $$$$

Today, I bought my first decent bikini after years of slummin' it with Old Navy and H&M styles. HOLY CRAP! When did bathing suits get to be so expensive?!!? I'm pretty sure my heart stopped after just looking at the price tag. Especially after realizing that the top and bottoms were priced separately.

Now, I'll admit that I'm a bit stingy, especially in this age of disposable fashion, but do all bikinis cost over $100? Do woman pay this price every summer to look and feel good by the seashore? And that's why I decided to fork over the cash. I feel good in this suit and I can't remember the last time I've had that feeling. Dreading going in the water for one more summer seems ridiculous to me, especially since it's one of my favorite things to do.

So maybe feeling good about doing your favorite thing is worth paying a little extra for.

Socks with Sandals

I've noticed in most of the summer magazines I've been reading, that many-a-model has been styled wearing socks with strappy heels and wedges.

I think this looks awesome in editorials and am tempted to try it myself, but is this one of those styles that looks great on the runway and not so great on the sidewalk?
     I would hate to look like this.

     Any tips would be welcomed.
