I can’t find my camera. I’m sure it’s here somewhere; my house is relatively tidy with few hidey-holes. I remember the last time I had it, I remember where I put it and it’s not there. I cleaned the house, my husband cleaned, and we still can’t find the thing. I’m absent-minded at the best of times, but this is ridiculous. All that is to say, I can’t blog the Twisty Pinny (or all my recently finished knitted treasures) until I find my camera. Or borrow one (which is my back-up plan for tomorrow).
Husband took my last few MMJ photos with his iPhone. It doesn’t take great photos, and besides I have detail shots on my missing camera. If you haven’t seen this Me Made June, check it out. It’s basically a month-long sewists’ convention, where you get a peek into other people’s lives through seeing them wear what they’ve made every day for a month at a time. I love it. This month has a slightly different vibe, with a few photo challenges- ugliest backdrop, Conformity Friday, and some more sophisticated sewing than usual. I missed a few days for outfit photos, and also realized just how much I steal clothes from my husband.
On a completely unrelated note, I need a little advice. Don’t worry about hurting my feelings.
I’m a die-hard Harry Potter fan, and recently stumbled across this picture of Emma Watson. I like this outfit, I like it enough to work on re-creating it but I know she’s a little younger than I. Can a rather suburban mommy from the provinces rock this look, or is it best left to beautifully young, socially conscious nymphs who dwell in the center of the universe? The tie reminds me of Chanel’s “garcon” look from early in her career, and I’m intrigued by the idea of bridal-lace shorts. I have plenty of white Peter-Pan collared shirts, and a few neutral cardigans/blazers…
Do we like this look? Can I go there even if I’m not stick thin and I’m pushing 27?
Are you enjoying MMJ?
Have you seen my camera?
