..favorite fall skirt..

A while back I did a collection on Polyvore for a contest entry, and I felt like I had surely already shared it on the old blog here, but I think I may have gotten sidetracked before I did, oops.  I was just looking at some of my saved Etsy favorites and I was reminded of that collection where I fell for the colorful plaid pleated skirt.  The particular one featured sold quickly, but I found a few others that are contenders for my heart as well.
Here are a few of my favorites from Etsy
Happy Friday!

I am in love with this golden mustard color.  I made a scarflette last year in the same color and I have worn the heck out of it.  And, I finally get to flaunt my new cardigan that I got from Delia*s! Yay!
I don't know about you but I freakin' love zombie entertainment.  If you are like me in that way and you haven't yet tuned in to the new Walking Dead series on AMC, then get your butt in gear, because so far it is really fantastic, just to let you know.

..busy, busy..

Wow, Lately I have been a bit overwhelmed, but in a good way.  I just recently changed from part-time to full-time at work, which has led to less free time and much earlier bedtimes.  And, lately I have been getting the sewing itch.  I made my husband a halloween costume, did a few little diy accessory projects, and have been finishing and rehatching old sewing projects. Here is a super cute little makeup bag I made out of fabric scraps, for a friend.
...and, also my apologies for being such a slacker on outfit posts lately, and though I don't have much for ya today, here is a little bit to hold you over.
I am gearing up for fall weather and finally getting to pull on some cozy jackets and scarves!
 Ahh, and here are the beginnings of the pencil bag that preceded the makeup bag.  I followed the directions here from the lovely Design*Sponge blog.  I love little quick, easy projects like this, I am all about instant gratification!  It is really easy to adapt to whatever size you want.  My tip for this project is, don't sew the lining too close to the  back edge of the zipper, this will help keep the lining from getting caught in the zipper.
