Rain... blurgh...


What better to do on a rainy day then pull your sewing machine out of storage and get to work?? I've had my sewing machine packed away for well over a year, now, and after a very interesting and inspiring conversation with a girl I met recently about how she wants to start a wedding gown business-- she wants to create gowns especially for creatively hiding tattoos-- I got the old bastard out and hemmed up a formerly dowdy frock into something incredibly cute...  I'm thinking over a swimsuit, on the beach... to be seen shortly.


Speaking of things one never uses, I have a whole bunch of really lovely silk scarves that I mostly just like to look at and feel but never wear.  My little bomber ensemble made me turn a new leaf today, and I felt like a little bow around the neck was just the fitting accessoire; kind of half Earhart, half Collins.  Collins is probably where it's at because the drag queens who live across the street felt moved to yell at me as I walked by, "Work that scarf, honey!!"  I could ask for nothing more.

Working my scarf,

Elissa.

The little scarf is so cute!

I used my sewing machine today for the first time in a long time as well - I'm making a skirt along with a bunch of other bloggers - I guess I just needed the proper motivation!

Chic on the Cheap

Really slick! And the scarf is the perfect little compliment.

speaking of the return of silk scarves....

Paws-- yes! And my favorite though is her belt buckle and how you can see the end of the runway in it.
