This old house again

Many moons ago, I dreamed of a project in which I could wear my designs. I don’t know why, but I had imagined (and I have a very vivid image in my head from that Eureka moment) where someone (me) would wear a t-shirt tucked into their pants, and their top half showed a design from a Victorian San Francisco house. I wanted to make this happen. Then I did. Then I wore it. And I have been wearing it. Probably not as much as I should. Then I got caught up in other things and never really told anyone. Oops!

I’m currently having all the designs and materials hosted through Society 6. Because they manage the printing and design components. They turn my uploaded images into other products too, even though my overall goal was for apparel! I’ve bought this shirt and I really love it. I need to get one of the other designs ASAP because I can’t keep wearing this one on rotation. It’s really fun to have people point at your shirt and ask where it came from, and then be able to respond that I made it!

Here is a link to my Society6 store and a link here to all my Society6 shirts!

I can’t remember why I was experiencing so much resting bitch face in these photos, haha!

Falling for jumpsuits

I confess, I have recently become addicted to jumpsuits…

I’m not the kind of lady that likes maxi dresses, but I do like sleek and long looks. So I think the jumpsuit achieves that for me. Maybe I’m just late to this train ;) As someone who loves dresses in general, the jumpsuit gives me the same ease of getting dressed in the morning (especially on a day I’m running late to work.) The cons…going to the bathroom in public areas, not fun at all.

I realize I had largely removed my outfits from this blog…this is something I want to remedy, and of which I will address hopefully in another post soon! These are photos from the Fall. I’m wearing similar styled jumpsuits for the Winter, but with boots and a thick coat now.

Bay Area Outfit

I don’t know what’s going on with me – I think I may have been living in the Bay Area too long. Or maybe I’m getting older. Or maybe I’m feeling the trends too much right now. Maybe it’s just a combination of it all! Some days, I feel like I’m still recovering from being a former Las Vegas gal and the wardrobe that comes with it…I’m not quite sure that means! Some days I’m still figuring out the balance of being comfortable, age appropriate but also fun & youthful, not too trendy, work vs. play! I think that’s why I don’t have one specific style and my look is constantly evolving.

Lately, I’ve also been attracted to adding loose linen pieces to my wardrobe. Why? I’m enjoying how the earthy and organic colors come out. Plus, I’m barely (duh to me) figuring out how comfy they are! They also tend to be made in USA. Win, win, and win! So this loose and billowy top in this mellow yellow color really spoke to me at the thrift store! Part of me is worried that I’m turning into some stereotypes…but honestly, I’ve never cared :)

New darkness

I’m gravitating towards wearing a lot of black again, drawn to the dark side once more. Even though in my heart I really love to be polar opposites. Sometimes I wear all black and then neon brights, I like to be dressed up and can rock the casual like nobodies business!

This is an outfit I learned to be comfortable with because it was indeed out of my comfort zone of what I typically wear and how I typically wear these said things. It’s a little masculine, it’s a little modern, I don’t know how to frame this outfit! It’s just edgier than I normally wear my clothes!
