Tots & togs

19 09 2013

Wow, has it really been a year since I last updated this blog?

I’ve been full of good intentions, and to be sure, I have so many projects to write about. All good things, right? Sadly, rather than being filled with inspiration and excitement, I’m one of those people who, when confronted with an abundance of things to do, tends to curl up in a despondent ball and decide to watch six hours in a row of Pretty Little Liars on Netflix instead.

This won’t be a long update, though. I just wanted to share some of the pictures of my friends’ adorable tots modelling the togs I crocheted for them:

Bringing up baby (clothes)

3 07 2012

Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been in the midst of a whirlwind for the past few months – I started a fairly demanding new job in February, and on top of my usual activities, I was working on finishing up some more crocheted baby gifts for some of my lovely sisters at church.

Having never made any clothing before, I was quite pleased with this first project, a minty green kimono top that I made for Brayden V. – who was born June 20, the day after my birthday! – and his momma Remmick, who’s an absolute sweetheart. Read the rest of this entry »

Heh, I always thought that Rodgers & Hammerstein number was so ridiculous, but it’s rather fun and I echo the sentiment.

I guess I write a lot about film or food – I do have other loves! Unfortunately, most of them are pretty frivolous. Frivolity, I guess that’s another F-word for me =)

Anyway, I also love fashion, especially vintage frocks and funky styles, and I adore people who can pull off stuff I think is really cute/avant-garde but that I’m afraid to wear for fear of looking silly, or because it’s cold out and I still can’t rock the tights-and-dress look. I’ll get there someday! I guess vintage is pretty hot right now so I’m not exactly being original, but whatever.

Here are some of my recently discovered favourites. I don’t always keep up with them because I follow a bazillion blogs, but I love them when I can look in on them:

1. Esme and the lane way (http://esmeandthelaneway.blogspot.com/)

This girl is so freaking adorable! I have a huge girl crush. From the Bettie Page curls to the pale alabaster complexion, blue eyes and fire-engine red lips, to how she can pull off high-waisted shorts without looking ridiculous … so envious. Her style is really wonderful, and she takes great pictures of her clothes. Observe:
