Still Busy...

5th August 09

Thanks for all your lovely comments about the dress - I am currently hoarding a mass of little vintage summer dresses, and I really want to wear them but need to figure out how to make them warm. I have a terrible habit of buying for the wrong season, which I think I've mentioned before - I like buying summer things when its winter and winter things when its summer. The only problem with doing this is that I want to wear everything straight away and then when the weather is suitable for the things I've bought, I tend to forget what I have in the first place.

Does anyone else do this?

I'm still a busy bee at work right now and will continue to be until the end of next week. There has been very little sewing for the shop, but I plan to make some time this weekend as I have some custom orders that I'm very excited about doing - they are my first customers after all.

  4. You look gorgeous - I love your dress, it's so classy and beautiful!

    I never had such experience because I live in tropical country - means we only have dry or raining seasons, and the sun is shining everyday in the whole year! Haha. Sometimes I wonder what it's like to be in four-seasons country... Must be very interesting!

    That white dress is beautiful, though, and I love it layered like that!

  9. Adorable dress! I also have that same seasons habit - I never seem to want to wear weather-appropriate clothes! You can wear summer clothes in winter if you layer them properly. :)

  10. Oh yes, I have been shopping for winter for MONTHS and it's the middle of summer here! But then, winter is the dominant season where I live, so I think of it as stocking up.

    Love the cream and black, doll.

  11. That dress is so cute especially with the tights. I've spent all summer buying winter/fall clothes and waiting for it to get cool... so I understand what you mean about buying for the wrong season!

  13. Beautiful. I agree, the black and white look is very classic. I love the fun details on this dress.

    I tend to shop out of season, too. I like to layer a lot, so I usually get pretty good wear out of a fair portion of my wardrobe.

  17. I keep buying fall things that I convince myself in the moment are actually summer dresses. One was linen, so I thought it'd be OK... but it's a heavy dark brown linen. Argh! But I'm always more inspired by fall and winter fashion. That is a very cute dress!
