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?
