Success!

Many thanks to The_Kitten from Picked Picks who notified me about a relatively easy way to create a blog roll from my Google reader list. It worked like a charm! The link section has now been split up into three lists: one for impersonal fashion blogs, one for personal style blogs, and one for streetstyle. This makes it so much easier to maintain the link section. I'm sure I won't be leaving it untouched for so long anymore!

This morning I did a bit of browsing at my usual thrift haunts and found a great fitting boy's blazer, a wool shawl and long vest made of crushed silk that I turned into a dress. The vest was originally very loose and baggy, and had buttons running down the front with strings to tie it up around the collar. I wrapped the strings around my neck and wrapped the rest of the fabric around me to turn it into a type of halter dress. This sounds much more complicated than it actually is. I am very pleased with the results.

The vest looks great as a dress. Nice buys--the others look like good basics.

All three photos are wonderful! They are different and expressive even though they're taken in the exact same spot. You're quite good at photographing yourself
