Busy Busy!

Sorry for the shortage of posts lately! I have been super busy trying to make dresses for a last minute shoot I did yesterday. Local photographer, Kerri Sullivan contacted me and asked if I wanted to collaborate with her so I jumped on the opportunity and whipped up some new pieces. I asked Jeannie to do the modeling. She was a natural and gorgeous to say the least. Here are a few teasers from yesterday. Cant wait to see how they came out!
Oh! And here's Old Violet sporting a Seams To Be headband. Isn't she great?!

Put the breaks on these fast fast wheels...

I love The Sartorialist. The other day, Scott posted these vintage photos. Sometimes I think Im being too masculine with my style. I have been known to shop in the men's section of J. Crew pretty often. This woman's style is a bit masculin but so feminine and soft at the same time. And the fact that this is from over 50 years ago makes it so much more original and scandalous. What do you guys think?

Philly Craft Beer Fest

Last week end my friends and I ventured to Philadelphia for the Craft Beer Festival. It was great! They had vendors from sooo many different brews, fun people, and delicious food trucks. Here are a few cute pictures from throughout the day.

More Homemade Skirts!

Since Melanie and I are half unemployed we have alot of time to do stuff during the week. Stuff such as take two classes in one day at the gym which made me feel like death the next day, or walk into Red Bank for Basil's happy hour(free wings btw), or make these skirts! I dragged her to Stitch N Sew with me to pick up some new fabric and fell inlove with these polka dots. She went for a more summery floral fabric that looks great on her. I think they both turned out great, right?! I'm going to start selling these skirts on etsy soon so keep an eye out!

Today I am sick. It's supposed to be 70 degrees out and I was going to take Amy's dogs to the beach with her and some friends and have a great day. I woke up in the middle of the night with a stomach bug. Im so upset that I kind of want to still go and just bring a barf that gross? Anyway, I feel so guilty because Im pretty sure I have infected about 5 of my closest lady friends and maybe even a boy. Here are some of my latest instagram photos because I dont have enough energy to blog about anything else. You can follow me if you want. drlsenerch. I hope no one else gets infected. God speed.

J. Crew Snood

I already posted about this snood I made for Ashley. Here it is on me. For all of you who don't know... I had a Snood from J. Crew that I adored until I lost it. I copied it and like mine better! These thin knit snoods take a pretty long time but since the yarn is better quality than the chunky stuff I usually use I think it will last alot longer. I love this and wear it almost every day. It is now on etsy available in many different colors so be sure to pick one up!

Amy's Moving Day?

My best friend Amy moved home last week! It was bitter-sweet for her but so great for me! These pictrues are from when I helped unload her Uhaul truck. We would unload for five minutes...and then rest for five minutes...and then repeat. I blame it on the 65 degree weather in February.
Oh. And I was going to label where my outfit is from but it's all from Anthro. Someone has a little shopping problem!
