Holka Polka (Dot)
Well, things didn’t exactly go as planned. Last night I was supposed to be staying at a Hilton for a work dinner and training. After I got into the office they had to change the dinner to the following night, which meant I got to go home for the evening and spend the night tonight instead. I was a little bummed since I’d planned out my outfits and was going to wear dresses. I decided I probably wouldn’t want to wear knee-high boots three days in a row or schlep them around if I wore another pair of shoes, so I gave in and wore jeans today and packed pants for tomorrow. I’m sorry if I disappointed anyone.
This weekend I decided to restyle some clothes to make them fit better (I’m considering blogging some tutorials on that as well. But, no promises in case I don’t get to it). One of the things I refashioned was a white, polka dot shirt I had made in China. I looked everywhere for a picture of me in the shirt prior to the refashioning, but I couldn’t find it. Essentially, it was big and billowy, and I decided that I wanted it more form fitting and flattering, so I took it in this weekend. I like it much better now! And, I had two forms of inspiration (1 and 2) for the outfit.
