This is my Joan Holloway dress! I liken it to the dress she wears below.
It’s woolen and lovely and warm and it comes with a matching jacket. I don’t think I’d wear the jacket with the dress though because I think it’s a little too matchy matchy. Speaking of Joan Holloway, I still haven’t finished season 1 of Mad Men. I’m about half way through and it just kind of fizzled out for me, but I do still plan to watch the rest of it!!
Last week was quite the eventful week work wise - our show finished on Saturday to sell out crowds. There were 10 shows all up, held in a theatre that seats around 480 people and almost all the nights were completely full!
This week is also going to be quite eventful too. Tomorrow, David and I celebrate our 4 year anniversary (wow, that is a long time – and funny story, we met at the show I’ve just finished!! I was backstage, he was an actor and the rest is history!!). I also turn the grand old age of 24 on Thursday (which I plan to take off work!) and my blog turns the smaller age of 1 (which I don’t plan to take off work).
The shop is humming along nicely, yesterday I bought a whole bunch of storage boxes and started sorting out my buttons, cotton, zips, buckles etc. I’m going to let you in on a little secret and tell you all that I am a very messy person!! I leave my stuff everywhere and for the past few months David has had to put up with my sewing bits and pieces being sprawled out all over the dining room table! Sorry Hun!! So yesterday, I decided that I really needed to get organised so that I can start properly planning out the items for my shop. I’m not completely finished, but it’s getting there.
