Yo-ho

 Blouse - Dear Creatures, thrifted
Belt - Betsey Johnson
Skirt - BB Dakota, gift from Sheila
Socks - thieved from D's drawer
Shoes - Fly London

What's more appropriate than a sailor blouse with some pirate(d) socks. These are the perfect pair of black and white socks, and while they technically belong to the husband - I stole them. Heehee.

I can't tell you how exciting my morning has been - well, maybe I can try. I've been more busy since school let out than ever before. Art commission, sewing commission, buttonflower sales and production! I also found a partner to go see Frankenstein! Eee. 

As I tweeted last night, I made a ton of new buttonflowers in bright new shades and lovely pastels. I'm working on belt designs tonight so hopefully I'll have some more new stuff up by the end of the week.

I had put these Fly London shoes up for sale, and they're the only pair that didn't go. I'm almost glad they didn't sell, because they really are invaluable as a red shoe. I'm still on the lookout for a replacement that's a little more comfortable with bare feet, but I'm happy these stuck around. Funny because both the shoes and the belt have been up on the chopping block for sale/donation a couple of times, but I always remember last minute why I love them both.

  1. Aw look at you busy as a bee! All your flowerbuttons look great! So colorful and fun! I love that skirt (but you already know that) and the top! Kinda glad that the shoes didn't sell either. They are really cool! Hope you get to relax in the midst of all your projects Megan!

  2. No way - I totally wore a yellow skirt today too. Twinsies! Not quite, but sort of.

    I love your look though, the sailor shirt is darling and the skirt is a great fit! And it's so fun with the striped socks!

    You sure have been a busy bee! Loving the new buttonflowers and glad you found a friend to go to Frankenstein with!

  4. You're dressing like a pirate and now you're stealing like a pirate! Of course, I don't think the typical pirate is interested in stealing socks.

    Your button flowers look amazing! That must have been a lot of work.

  12. I love those beautiful shoes; I know they're glad you kept them. The yellow skirt really pops and centers the look. Laughing over the idea of being able to wear any of my hub's size 13 tube socks :P
