I've been wanting this style of boot but not quite sure it would fit in my wardrobe.
Target was having a Cartwheel special so I was able to snag them for under $30. I wore them Friday with straight legged jeans and thought they were pretty cute.
Friday was my 5th Anniversary. The last 2 years have been an uphill battle but we are hopeful for the future.
Target had another Cartwheel offer for accessories. Yes. I am addicted to Target. I absolutely loved this necklace and it was well worth the $10! The earrings were on clearance plus an additional percent off so they were $1.66 each! And I *LOVE* the aqua pair!
Similarly, I have a lot of fun costume jewelry and some of it I have had for years. Like, YEARS! It's still in decent condition (probably because I have so many pieces to choose from!) but I think I'm tired of a lot of them.
So I have started a free trial subscription to Rocksbox. You get the first month free though you do need to enter your credit card info. It is $19/month and you get 3 pieces of jewelry at a time. You can keep the box as long as you like but also, once you return it you will get a new box. So the possibility exists of getting several boxes per month.
They claim each box is worth about $200 total. If you decide to keep any items you get 20% off the list price. You also get $10 credit each month towards purchases, but it expires each month. You can get $25 for each person that signs up using your referral link. I won't be posting a referral link until I've had a chance to review.
I am also going to be taking daily outfit pics and posting them on my "Making My Wardrobe Work" page. I really want to have more fun with my wardrobe and I think documenting will help as will a fun assortment of jewelry!
When I picked out my new jewelry I happened upon the sleepwear clearance rack at Target! The top two are rayon/modal blend pajama pants ($4.48!), then there's a rayon romper ($2.03!) and a tank with a cute crisscross back detail ($1.94!). I wore my new jammies last night and they were awesome :-D
The kids' dad showed up to make the 17 year old happy!
Yesterday I was doing laundry and noticed how many items in my closet are handmade! I was wearing 2 RTW pieces but of what you see pictured, I counted 21 items in my closet that were storebought and I think about 16-17 of them were from Target or JC Penney! LOL!
My closet is arranged by
casual (non work) dresses
cardigans (solids then prints)
jackets (prints then solids)
sleeveless tops (solids then prints)
shortsleeved tops (solids then prints)
long sleeved tops (solids then prints)
And then random stuff.
I had some generic October plans but after looking at my closet, I really ned to add to my closet purposefully.
I am still making my Burda pants, but I have the most ridiculous bloat every month and I don't trust pant making during this time.
I fell in love with this top but I am head scratching at the directions. Hopefully as I go through it it will start to make sense.
I've done no stitching yet, but the darts on the back are pinned and on top, those are the sleeves, pinned and ready to sew.
I don't normally use a lot of pins but this is a polyester crepe so....yeah!
I have more on my plate for this Sunday than I'd like but I will do the above stitching and insert the invisible zipper. I also hope to get the front assembled (it has a lot of steps!!!!). It's one of those patterns that by the time you get to the side seams you have pretty much done 80% of the work.
So we shall see.
Hope you're having a great weekend! What's on your sewing table?
