A Random Thing Or Two-sday





Dress: Made by yours truly
Hat: similar
Scarf: similar
Boots: similar

1. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow split?! I am usually first to know about celebrity gossip happenings, but it appears that I dropped the ball on this one. Looks like the Goop was accused of being a "Yoko Ono." Good news is they are still friends. (Terribly important stuff, I know.)

2. Fact: You know these vultures in The Jungle Book? The Beatles were originally supposed to be the voices for them, but John Lennon allegedly bashed that idea square on the head. Even though they dissed Mickey Mouse, Disney still went ahead with the idea as an homage to the band (source).

3. The videos this dad created of his son are amazing.

4.  So, my dress. I couldn't find a shapeless, mumu-esque dress anywhere (and I certainly refuse to pay $150+ for something that more or less resembles a potato sack) so I made one myself, of course. Now I can't bring myself to wear anything else! As for the process, it was rather simple — I used a shapeless blouse I own as a pattern guide, extended the length, and bam! I now have myself one of those trendy, minimalist, midi dresses for spring and summer. Excuse the wrinkles, but ain't nobody got time for ironing! Isn't the disheveled, grunge thing in anyway?

5. Would you rather be the drummer or guitarist in a band?

So amazing that you made your own dress! I wish I could find my way around a sewing machine. ;P

Oh my I love the dress! Well done! I may not be able to resist making one of those quite soon! :)

Trust me when I say if I can do it, you most definitely could too! :)

It's seriously the best and only requires sewing two pieces of fabric together and some sleeves! Piece of cake. If you do make one, I want to see it!

You are just so handy. I love that you made that yourself! And I'm super bummed about Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin... :( And I would say drummer, since it seems like it would be easier to learn, but they have to hang in the back alone, so... guitarist!

You made this dress...girl I LOVE it! It looks like the most comfortable thing since sliced bread in a full tummy!

You totally should! Although I love your new melt. You hair is sooo pretty!

Thanks, Bethany! Yes, sad day in the love department of Goop and Chris Martin, but did you hear her interview saying how being a movie star is harder than being a working mother? Foot in her mouth, BIG TIME! Yikes!

Thanks, Erin! And I may just have had homemade sliced bread in my tummy when I was wearing it! ;)
