Girls are from Mars













what I wore:
galaxy print dress, handmade by me!
cardigan, vintage, thrifted.
socks, target.
Justin boots, thrifted.

I found this galaxy print at a local fabric shop in town and decided it was an absolute must to make a dress out of. I really like how it turned out! The colors are so vibrant and I can see myself wearing this dress year-round depending on how I style it. I've been trying to sew different styles of dresses and have made a couple tops. I definitely feel as though I've found the style I'm going for, I've yet to draft an actual pattern, though... Everything up to this point has been hand cut, folded, cut, and folded again. I've always had this weird distaste for instructions and following patterns. I love when pieces are one of a kind with a sense of individuality. It's more fun that way!

These past two weeks I've been out of work for a big remodel we're doing at the restaurant I work at. Thanks to my wonderful ma, I've been doing some much needed TLC with my shop inventory and I've started to completely organize and get rid of items I've grown less fond of. It feels great to get things accomplished. I really would not be able to do any of these things without the people I love in my life, it's really been an eye-opening experience. With the organizing I've done I'll be devoting some of my posts to outfits I'll be putting together with items from my shop inventory and hopefully selling outfits OR individual items right here on my blog! It'll be nice to get out of the slump I've been in and do something I really love and I can't wait to hear all of your feedback.

Until next time!
exoh, Kala Noel.
