Boy, am I pasty. The sun brings it out :)
(skirt: thrifted; love me do dress: modcloth; trench: h&m; shoes: seychelles)
I had a good, productive weekend, with lots of shopping and Starbucks and sewing and sushi (the four s's!). I've almost finished my ice cream dress--all I need to do is add a lace collar! I definitely think my sewing skills are improving. I'm learning as I go, which is the only way I can really handle learning (kinetic, all the way). I get antsy just watching 2 minute YouTube video tutorials, and while making mistakes is definitely frustrating, I definitely need to be able to jump in and get my hands on a project that excites me, rather than teaching myself in a practical, standard step-by-step way (practicing stitches and the like). What does that say about me? I don't know. I think I'm kind of like that in all aspects of my life.
In other news, in my quest to grow up and become classier, I have made myself a little list of guidelines for
How To Be Classy
1. wear lipstick casually (like today!)
2. stop biting fingernails
3. further to the above, repaint fingernails when polish starts to chip
4. two drink limit
5. exercise regularly
6. get a haircut more than once a year (whoops...)
7. invest in basics (LBDs, quality trench coats, breton stripes, etc.)
8. experiment with up-dos
9. listen to French music
10. keep the apartment clean
Those are good enough :) Baby steps. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go reapply my casual lipstick, which has become rather trampy-looking after my morning cup of coffee...
