I love color, can you tell?

Tube top: Made by me from Joann’s fabric | Cardigan: Target | Jeans: Express | Belt: Don’t know from where | Shoes: Passed down from SIL | Headband: Whippy Cake

You recognize that Whippy Cake I’m wearing?  I’m sad that I’m going to have to part with it this week… but happy that it will be moving on to either Kim, Moriah, Ilene or Lindsay.  šŸ™‚  You’ll find out who in a few weeks, teehee.  We like to keep you guessing.  And the best part, I’ll be getting a new Whippy Cake to model myself, heck yea!

But what do I love about this outfit the most?  The fact that it has colors, a lot of them, all over my handmade top, my headband and fun shoes!  Anything colorful just reminds me of that time when Spring is heading into Summer, when flowers are blossoming all over, and the weather is getting warm to stay warm!  But unfortunately, with that, also comes some horrible weather as well.  My heart seriously goes out to all those in Joplin, MO (it’s two hours from my house) and anyone else who has been affected by severe weather this year.  It’s really a scary thing especially since we don’t have any control over it.

On a happier note, did you happen to notice that I made this top?  Yup, sewing machine and all!  šŸ™‚  I made it on the same day that I made the dress I blogged about a few weeks ago.  I wish I had more time to make clothes for myself, I really do.

Are you a fan of all things colorful like I am?

    You made that top? Are you going to add it to the Etsy shop? I would totally buy it!

  2. May 24, 2011 / 9:22 pm

    so pretty! I adore that shirt you made! It’s so cute!

  3. May 24, 2011 / 10:15 pm

    Ahh, I know what you mean! I learned how to make blouses, prince bodices with the puffy sleeves, pencil skirts, dresses, and now I’m going on to corsets and paper bag shorts.

    With all the school work that I have on top of other work I need to get through, I wish I had just a week or two to myself so I can sew my own outfits. They are time consuming, but it saves me so much money making things that I want to buy (which are usually what are trending and overly priced).

    I love color, but I’m too insecure to wear anything other than black most days. I need to take a lesson from your book šŸ™‚

  37. May 26, 2011 / 6:53 am

    I love colorful things and I love the fabric you used for the top! Was it complicated to sew or could a beginner like me handle it?!

  38. May 26, 2011 / 8:00 am

    I love the top! I need to work on my sewing skills this summer!
