My third sewing class showed me FLAMES! Granted I didn’t do my homework and had to do alot of catching up during class. That sucked. Lol. On the flip side though I’m enjoying every minute. There’s a difference between learning a skill on your own and being taught by an expert. So we made a sample t-shirt from our patterns. It was pretty cool to see the vision come together, granted my tailoring needs a lot of work but, hey! Practice makes perfect!
One question, or two? Is it just me why is it that when a pair of jeans say “boyfriend jeans” they might as well be straight-leg with a bit of room and a tear, here and there? Can you fill me in?😊
My entire outfit is thrifted, except for the black sandals which I got from The Fix seasons ago. The blouse is another from my recent Bree Street haul. It has the feel of chiffon, which feels good against the skin and I especially love the colour and the print. Apparently print on print is in right now, really wanna try that.
With all the places I’ve been. One thing I have come to realise is that people make home, what it is, don’t they. Especially people who love you. We often take these people for granted, I do, but it’s definitely my heart’s intent to live a life where these people (read homes 😊) know that I love them, I’m thankful for them and I prize the place that they hold in my life. So on this smeltering March Wednesday in Johannesburg South Africa, I am thankful for my people, my homes.
I can’t say just how much I love vintage fashion. This blouse is another find from my recent, unexpected haul while taking a gander down Bree Street. I feel like this type of blouse was worn by an aunt or even my mom, lol, my mom is quite the fashionista, let me tell you.
I love the earthy feel of this outfit. Denim does that, doesn’t it? And my gorgeous brogues from ASOS aren’t doing too badly either. My jeans are also thrifted, shocking I know! I feel like I’m looking for the perfect thrifted pair of mom jeans! Haven’t found them yet! So the search continues. What are your favourite pair of jeans? Skinny, bootleg, straight-leg, mom, jeggings, lol, I LOVE, that we so many choices!
The story goes: a younger me wanted to become a fashion designer but life happened and I chose a different path. My heart never forgot and as I grew, I carried that desire deep within me. This year I have chosen to sign up for a sewing class, an introduction dress-making. We’re three weeks in and I’ve learnt so much already. Even though I didn’t become a fashion designer, my love for fashion, trends and clothes has remained and I have cultivated it lovingly. This opportunity to further realise this love, fills me with joy. I plan on sharing this journey with you all, I hope you’re keen to join me.
