Kitty Dress (altered) - All Saints, gift from Megan
scorpion Belt - thrifted
Shoes - Fly London
Socks - gift
Last day of actual classes. I decided to pull out my favorite (and only!) LBD. I removed the sleeves (you guys saw this coming..) I can actually put outerwear over this dress now. I couldn't resist pairing it with this scorpion belt. I thrifted this belt a couple of months ago, but have gone through an "anti-belt" phase lately. I was reminded of the belt when I was checking out Goodwill's wares on Wednesday and stumbled upon a pair of lobster embroidered pants (no, they weren't my size - I checked *sad face*).
So yesterday, DH and I were about to go to our usual Wednesday plans, which were unfortunately canceled last minute. So at home I turned to Twitter where Hillary began the inspiration for the first couple of drawings I've done in months. You can check the "MMD figurine" out on my About Me page.
Additionally Hillary gave me a great idea. Megan Mae Daily is not funded by outside advertising. I don't do paid posts or reviews. I did one sponsored giveaway with a company and decided it wasn't for me. However, Megan Mae Daily is a fashion blog. The content here is funded by myself and husband, my family and friends' generous gifts and swaps, and my savvy thrifting and clearance shopping.
And now that I'm in my final days of the semester I'm thrilled to say I'm back open for art commissions! To paraphrase Hillary, the drawings are great for blog headers, crops are good for icon photos on social networking sites, and would even be cute on a business cards.
I also have a brand new batch of buttonflowers in lots of new colors. Check out the ready made pieces I have posted or email me for a special request. Both art commissions and buttonflower sales will be going into my savings fund.
