I have this weird fear that one night I’m going to wake up at 3 am to a smoky smell and then realize that my house is on fire and there’s no time to grab anything so I just run for my life and I get out to the street to see my home burning to the ground only to realize…I’m standing in my underwear.
For this reason, I make it a point to put on PJ’s before bed, no matter how hot it is. But I’m like turning a big 2-8 this month so it’s time to get this working girl a real pair of grown up pajamas. So far these palm leaf PJ’s are my numero uno pick. The rest all tie for numero dos.
What do you wear to bed? Maybe you and I both should invest in some big girl PJ’s. Let’s do it.

Let’s be honest: it’s friendsgiving (remember last years?), and it’s all about the food. Your friends don’t really care what you wear. But it’s fun to play dress up, or dress down, or somewhere in-between. I’m leaning for dress-down but my friends have ordered we dress “semi-casual” so I might have to punch it up a notch.

Time to consult with my closet now. What are you/did you wear for friendsgiving? For my family Thanksgiving, I will probably be wearing something closer to the last look (minus all the coats, it’s Cali…), since I will likely get roped into a game of two hand touch football. Perks of having all brothers. #TurkeyBowl2k14
Happy Thanksgiving readers/friends, I’m so thankful for you all!

My friend Bonnie and her stylish fingers have been busy hunting through warehouse sales and combing through piles at sample sales in Downtown LA. She and I have such similar taste that most of the items she found are things I would wear like right now (plus or minus a shirt under/over a few of the pieces). We just did another round of pictures with more fall outfits, and will have them up in our shopify store soon, like really soon! More info to come, we can’t wait to show you!
And no, I still haven’t resolved my external hard drive issue :( Contacting the manufacturer today and hoping they can lend some help (although I’m afraid it’s going to come at a cost…).
I’m also on the look for more HoBag material aka vintage blouses. As soon as I get my hands on some great garments, I’ll be making a few more bags. Any great thrift stores that you can recommend in SoCal? I prefer ones that carry lots of grandma-esque prints & clothing….
Until then, there are always these HoBags to choose from~~
Okay, does everyone remember my weekend project I started a few weeks ago? I wanted to turn this pretty dark navy fabric into some kind of loose-fit shirt dress. Well guys I tried, I really did, to follow a pattern but…as with my cooking, I hate following recipes. I just want to look at the ingredient list and throw it all together! So after a few hours of reading, cutting the pattern out, and reading some more, I was annoyed at how long it was taking and also still confused about a few things. So, I grabbed one of my dresses, pulled the sleeves inside out, and traced the sleeve line with fabric chalk. The rest was me just playing with the fabric and…somehow, the sleeves turned out pretty good, and so did the rest! It’s totally my style–loose fitting/figure hiding short dress. I know it’s not something everyone would wear, but I hope you like it. It’s the comfiest dress in the world.
^^ I tapered the front of the dress to be shorter than the back…can you tell? I thought it added a feminine touch to the design. ^^
You may have seen one of these images posted to my instagram, sorry for the low quality – they’re from my phone! Anyway, aside from my Shop that sells Hobags, a friend and I are opening up another type of shop in a few weeks…I’m sworn to secrecy for now, but a little hint….this skirt will be among the items for sale. Fun things to come! And I’m still working on that blue dress, I’ll post pics when I’m done. Have a good Monday (I know, UGHHH, but it’ll be the weekend before you know it!).
