Hello, sorry for the unexplained absence from blog land. Three weeks ago our lives were turned upside down and blogging has been the last thing on my mind. At this time I can't talk about the crisis we are facing. That is on the strong advise from the attorney. I will ask that if you are a praying soul. Just think of my family when you have your next chat with God.
A simple pin from pinterest sparked me today so I'll get right to it. Not Dressed as Lamb pinned it. Her pins are always so creative. In my next life when I am as she calls it 30 almost 40 I hope to be just like her.
The original pin came from I couldn't find the original picture on her site so I don't know who this beautiful young woman is and I am hoping I didn't break any rules.
If you know me you know that I am a die hard thrifter. Well this outfit had my name all over it. I actually had everything but the jacket/vest and the purse. Those were scooped up this morning when I made a quick dash into GW for 50% off day. (you know something isn't right when the girls at GW ask where you've been)
The inspiration photo has a long vest. I knew I had to have a similar version. What I found today was a Liz Claiborne anorak jacket. Which is a spring trend this year. It has great details like the interior cinch rope and big beautiful silver snaps. When I snatched it up the plan was to bring it home and immediately remove the sleeves making a vest. The sewing machine was still out due to earlier pegging of the jeans I have on.
Now I can't decide. It's really a cute jacket. What would you do?
Hope all of you are well and as soon as I can be a part of the blog land on a consistent basis I will.
I do miss all of my friends out there.
