Five things lately (plus one)

So, I broke my camera last week as the culminating crappy event of a day of crappy events. It was just the final straw of feeling frustrated and stuck when it comes to selling vintage. I was really upset and angry about it for a while, but then I decided that I was not going to let something so simple stop me from doing what I want to do. I'm still working on some new listings, but in the meantime, here are a few Instagram snaps from the past few weeks to show what I've been up to:

1. Experienced temporary insanity.

Shop(s) update

Ha, OK, so "DIY Week" may have been a bit of an overstatement ... I've been working on my latest project off and on for a few days now, and it's still not done! So I thought I'd highlight a few items from my Etsy and Instagram shops instead.

DIY Week: Vintage apron toddler dress

Happy Wednesday! I am off work this week, doing exciting things like cleaning the laundry room and grocery shopping (no joke, do I know how to have fun or what?), so instead of outfit posts, I'm sharing a few DIY ideas with you. I generally don't "do" DIY, because I'm cheap, impatient and ham-handed, so these are some pretty quick-and-dirty ideas that even the most craft-deficient person can probably attempt without wanting to throw anything out the window. Today I'm sharing my idea for making a toddler dress out of a vintage apron.

DIY Week: Bungee Cord Bracelet

Happy Tuesday! I am off work this week, so instead of outfit posts, I am bringing you some DIY/project ideas that even someone with my extremely low skill/craftitude level can accomplish. Yesterday I showed you how I brightened up some canvas slip-ons with fabric markers; today, I'm making a rope bracelet out of bungee cord.

DIY Week: Polka dot slip-ons

Happy Monday! I am off work this week, which means I have no exciting outfits to share (right now I am wearing maternity shorts and a stretched-out Gap tanktop that I bought at a yard sale). So I thought I would share a few DIY projects with you.

Downhearted

Today was just a weird day. My hair is super straight for some reason, I ate a bunch of avocado for breakfast (I don't even like avocados that much) and I decided to wear a wool jumper, in July. Yeah. Weird.

Mad for Mod

After my two weeks of work purgatory, I was eager to jump back on the fashion challenge bandwagon, so it was perfect that the first style prompt for July was "Mad Men Inspired."

Playing catch-up

Whew, what a few weeks it has been ... it's just been work, work, work, mixed with toddler wrangling (aka parenting) with little time for anything else.
