The other day at work I had a little down time and discreetly snapped a few photos of myself wearing my new blue polka dot blazer. How exciting to see handmade garments out in the wild! The fact that I’m taking photos of my outfits at work probably makes me a little crazy, but hey, you already knew that right? : )
I’ve been wearing the blazer a lot lately as a light jacket for chilly mornings and over-air-conditioned days at work, and it’s been working out quite nicely. I feel very sophisticated wearing it, and I am pretty much constantly giggling to myself and feeling so smug knowing that I made it. Ha. Do you giggle to yourself when wearing handmade garments? If not, you totally should. It’s so fun!
And look what’s hanging proudly on the wall next to my desk. It’s my beloved fungi embroidery, a delightful homage to the furry creatures that will one day give me a PhD. Well, they’d better give me a PhD someday. Are you listening, fungi? I’m not getting any younger, you know…
P.S. – I also made my earrings! I’ll have to do a post about them one day.
