"The Pleated Poppy." I mean, the name alone, right? She has inspired my wardrobe big time- which is really saying something, as lately I've been living in black yoga pants and a black tank top. Sometimes I vary it, and put on black cropped pants, and a black tee shirt. I also have the latter in navy, so when I really want to change things up, I go with that. But if I'm feeling especially lazy, I surf my man's side of the closet for clothing that hangs to my knees. Anyway, after seeing her "What I wore" posts, I realized I needed one of two things. Clinton and Stacy to come and smack me upside the head and lock me in a 365 degree mirror, or to simply quit wearing black. I've been struggling with some things in my personal life, and the black clothing has been unintentionally representational of my mood. My plan is to wear color, coordinating shoes, and accessories every day this week- all without shopping anywhere but my very own closet. And I'm starting with a white tank top that I tweaked. (Because white is the opposite of black.) I was inspired by Lindsey's tutorial at The Pleated Poppy.
"anti-lazy-girl-black-wearing" campaign. First, find a shirt you want to decorate. Then find a shirt you want to destroy. Cut random free-handed circles in the shirt you want to destroy. Take care not to mix up the two and destroy the shirt you intended to decorate. Not that you would do something like that. But I would, so I'm just saying.
baby steps here...
sew what you pinched so that when you flip it over and open it up it looks like...
... this. ooohh. ahhhh. (I know.)
flap all over in the wind. Unless you're into flapping in the wind. Me- not so much.
imperfection is showcased in a lovely way, thus you really can't ruin it.
Unless you went with the wrong shirt.
And in that case, you're on your own.
