In Real Life...

I've wanted to do this before but I never get a full week of pictures taken and I didn't this week either.  But I'm going to share the pics with you that I do have...


Monday
The revised MK dress 
with a RTW cashmere turtleneck


Tuesday
(notice it's missing the great shoes)


Wednesday
I made this skirt 5 years ago 
and am wearing it with a RTW twinset


Thursday - I wore a RTW sweater dress that I got for a song so no pic.  And today I wore jeans and a turtleneck with cardigan combination because we were cleaning out our storage room...and most of the staff was in jeans.


I called this post "In Real Life" because I find that many times I take pictures at home and I don't always bring "the look" to work for one reason or another...sometimes because I just don't want to cart my shoes with me that early in the morning! *LOL*  Sad to say I have 2 complete sets of shoes at work and home...


Anyway, it's Friday!  I'm home (jetted out of work as soon as I possibly could!) and I'm in the sewing cave with the heat pumping and the TV talking to me.  I'm going to cut my basics (skirt, dress, pants) out tonight so that I can start stitching in the morning.  I have no incentive to leave the house this weekend because the temps just plummeted here in my corner of the world and you know how much I hate the cold!


A parting shot:
A close up of my necklace ~ I love Heidi Daus jewelry and I just started collecting it. This is one of my favorite pieces and I love it against the Erdem inspired dress...






...as always, more later!

  11. I love seeing what you wear everyday. Makes me sort of wish I had a reason to get that dressed up for work again. Before my son was born my uniform was pumps and pantyhose. I don't even own a pair of PH now and jeans are acceptable to wear in the classroom. Monday seems popular and was my favorite as well

  16. I love these sort of posts - seeing how people actually wear their creations and how they look after being worn for a while instead of just a stylised photo straight after being pressed and posing carefully. I'm just too shy to ask anyone in my office to photograph me!

  23. Nice to see the outfits in context and fully accessorized. I agree with Faye, Monday is my favorite, but Wednesday is a close second. Thanks for taking the time to share this with us.

  24. I agree with you, the necklace does look great with the dress. I used to have a whole file cabinet full of my shoes at work; I hated lugging them back and forth.

  25. I love that jumper with the bias pockets! I wish i had occasion to wear dresses. I'll always remember a girl from high school who made jumpers like that for every day. I remember standing behind her in line and seeing a perfectly installed center zipper. It always brought to mind me throwing out garments because I couldn't get the zipper in. I love your crepe dress. It looks wonderful on you!
