DIY & LAB

What I wore yesterday to run errands. I was struck by how much of it was hand- made by local artisans (and myself).

Hand-dyed tank and long beaded necklace by Hadley Holliday.
I wore the tank over this dress, that I made, from fabric designed by my husband and me...
Pink Wrist Wrap and Messenger Tote by Clare Vivier.

***Hadley will be selling her work today at the Local Artisan Bazaar (LAB).

Girl, you have some serious taste! I love it, so quirky, but fresh and fun. LOVE

Oh, thanks ladies :)
I really do think women mostly dress to impress other women ;)
Although I also dress to please myself- have fun with it!

I just thought it was so great...how much of the outfit I was wearing yesterday was handmade.

I started making clothing partially because I couldn't find what I wanted in stores (at an affordable price).

I love layering. I think I honed my layering skills living in Minnesota. It's so cold up there in the winter...layering is a must! I also just like to play around with different fabrics and patterns together.
