MMM 2012

Days 3 and 4

I certainly didn't plan to post every two days, but I find myself with a few minutes spare, so why not do another post?

My buddy wanting in on the photo shoot!

Day three saw me wearing my Colette  Meringue skirt. I really like this skirt, even if a colleague calls it my tulip skirt because she says it reminds her of an upside down tulip! I wore it with a plain white blouse and brown shoes.

Before work!

I love the necklace I am wearing. A friend bought it back from South Africa for me. I love the colors and wear it often.

After work!!

A few observations from the afternoon shot:

Even if I start the day with my hair loose I end up tying it back sometime during the day. Sure sign I need to visit the hairdresser!!!!

I need a decent lap top bag, the company issue back pack just makes me look like an overgrown school girl, I bought a simplicity laptop bag pattern a while ago. This photo motivated me to purchase fabric (on sale) at Fabricland at lunch and I will attempt to make a new bag!

Did a quick change and then off to see Bryan Adams. Great concert. I wore jeans and a sleeveless Pendrell with a front pleat a la the Sorbetto.

My second Renfrew

Friday, being casual day, I used the opportunity to wear my second Renfrew t-shirt. This is the cowl neck version. I changed it up a bit by attaching lace instead of the cuffs at the sleeve and bottom edge.

  1. Ooh, I really like the addition of the lace. I just ordered the Renfrew pattern and now I'm even more impatient for it to get here!

  2. I love your meringue! It's a great skirt for sewsters to spot, isn't it! And using lace on a Renfrew - great idea!

    1. I love my Meringue. When I first saw it, I was not sure about the scallops, now I not only have the Meringue skirt, but two Pendrells with scallops as well!

  3. I love the lace on your Renfrew, I may have to steal that idea.
    So many lovely Meringues - I think it is time for me to jump on the bandwagon.

    1. Thanks. The lace just happened to be on my sewing table while I was sewing my Renfrew!
