I had a sudden and complete desire for a floral tapestry handbag last month and quickly chose this number from the many options on Etsy. Sadly the handle turned out to be a bit cracked and very stiff, but I still think the bag itself is just so pretty! Doesn't get much more granny-chic than a tapestry handbag right?
This olive sweater is from Forever 21 of all places, not the best place to use my purchasing power, but finding cropped sweaters (but not cropped cropped sweaters, vintage length sweaters) is so difficult that when I see them for cheap I pounce. It helped that this vaguely acidic litchen green color is one of my very favorite shades. I bought the same sweater in basic black too, as I feel a gal can never have too many black sweaters. I am however wishing I had a more winter appropriate black pencil skirt as this cotton twill number seems a bit out of place here in winter. Perhaps a black wool pencil skirt project is in order, but as I already have the world's longest list of sewing projects right now, it will have to wait for next fall. I have three dresses, two skirts, and a blouse I want to finish before the middle of March! Yikes! The fabric and notions are ready and waiting, all I need is more time.
It's just lucky I don't have a social life, at least that means I can live in my sewing room for the next few weekends and do my best to knock it all out! How about it, does a looming deadline help or hurt your motivation?
