Just Another Day

in Blue and Grey.


We decided to start a new series of photos called "This is not my house," and this isn't.

~ I'm wearing a bunch of things I've made ~


~ But I'm just not that into me (today?) ~



~ aiyiyi, just look at this, no don't, never-mind ~



~ But, socks and shoes are always there for you, man ~





My good friend Sara saved the day and stepped in, turning my blues into...all lightness and orange!


~ yea Sara ~

~ work it girl ~

p.s.  Sara didn't sew any of her clothes.  She had a bad sewing experience as a child and has not ever fully recovered, no matter how much encouragement her friends bestow upon her.  She is an avid thrifter.

ed. note:  I suppose I should mention I'm wearing Tina Givens patterns (Phoebe Top & Pants) I've sewn - except for the top layer kimono-like jacket.  That's a variation on some other big 4 pattern that I don't presently recall and was made way before Project Minima.

    1. Okay, maybe I'll start feeling better now. They are pretty fine, yeah? A subtle shade of lavender Trippens from ebay for a real steal. deep breath/ sigh.

  3. Hurrah for Sara saving the day! Love her colours.
    I laughed, Pao, at your incredible shrinking photos. And then, BAM, the money shot, the shoe/sock shot, at least for today. Usually the whole you is the money shot. You still look great in your blues, and greys. I like your "this is not my home" concept. Heh.

  5. I love the "this is not my home" concept but don't get yourself arrested for trespassing (or, I suppose, in the USA, you might get shot)
    I like both you and Sara's colour combos and your socks rock. xxx

  7. I love your blue and grey layers! The shoes and socks are definitely wonderful too. I can relate the Sara's traumatic sewing experience. There were many tears involved in mine so I am a thrifter too! I mend and alter hems but that's about where it ends.

    1. ohhhh, okay then, well my trauma happened with math. Geometry fine, counting with numbers, not happening.

  8. Your Phoebe layers are something!
    You are so effortlessly artful. I adore it.
    Of course the shoes and socks are the icing! Xo Jazzy Jack
