Ramblings of a fevered brain

My poor blog has been neglected lately. I haven't been sewing much as I caught an innocent headcold which evolved into a raging throat infection. I've spent the better part of the last week lying in bed feeling like hell. Ergh.

I've also been thinking about shopping. Before I caught the plague, I bought this cute little bag.

I found it at Claude d'Alban, aka, "one of my cheapo shops."

I've been needing a new bag for some time. My old bag is leather, floppy and shapeless and everything falls out of the inside pockets. I like the big buttons on this new one.

This morning, I found these little beauties on ModCloth.

ARGH. To buy, or not to buy? Polka dots! Blue! I don't know whether whipping out my credit card whilst in a state of mental confusion is a wise idea though.

Besides, I just bought these.

They are by Pin Up Couture (image from Pleaser USA). I had to buy them for a party I'm going to in a couple of weeks. They go with my outfit. Which I am going to make and will blog about soon.

And speaking of shoes, how glorious is this fabric??

I saw it in the window of Clegs in the city a little while ago and had to ask them to hold the display piece for me, as the rest had all sold out in about a day. I'm thinking about turning it into this dress (minus the ruffle) from Vogue

So now you all know, when I'm sick in bed, these are the things I think about. Thrilling, yes?


  1. I say POO to having a raging throat infection!
    But I say WANTY to those spotty shoes!!OMG,they are SO cute!A gal can NEVER have too many shoes....(Helga's words of wisdom!)
    Yummy fabric,not surprised it was popular!
    O,I need to refresh my my sewing mojo!


    You know the glitter shoes? $40 (24 hour online sale, currenty instore for $180). I have them in red, too.

  3. I agree with Miss Tallulah Porkchop, buy the polka dot shoes!
