Well hello there!
I'm Pocky from embrace the apockylypse! I absolutely adore Gillian (isn't she super duper awesome?!?!?) and I am so excited/honored to be asked to guest for her today! Before I get on with the post, I just want to wish Gillian and all of you other students a very wonderful start to your semesters. After being in the real world for a few years, I actually miss being a student...that's something I never thought I'd ever say!
What's one of the first things you think about when it comes to going back to school?Now I'm not a shopaholic (unless it comes to craft supplies) or a fashionista, but one of the first things I think of is new clothes.
Most of my life, I never dressed like most the kids I went to school with. I didn't go for all those name brands for two reasons: I was a skinny mini that couldn't fit in some of the styles and we couldn't always afford a new wardrobe of what was "in" at the time. With a mom who is the most amazing seamstress I know, that never really bugged me.
Thinking about school clothes, there is one specific outfit that always pops right up. To this day, I still haven't forgotten about it...and this was when I was just a wee one in preschool. I had on the most amazing pair of red silk overalls that my mom made just for me. No one else had a pair! They were my favorite piece of clothing because they made me feel special & unique. Even to this day I remember telling every classmate, "These are MY red silk overalls that my mommy made just for ME!".
...maybe if I had a new pair every year I wouldn't have felt so awkward in high school...
Red silk overalls aren't my thing now, but I might just have to search through piles of material & see if my mom can work a little magic like she did back then. I would go around wearing my beautiful wedding dress she made me, but I might be a little overdressed for my day-to-day activities.
What would be some of your "red silk overalls" this year?I can't wait to get my sewing machine set back up so I can maybe make some of these pieces:
- Nerdy Blouses
- Low Rise Flared Jeans
- 1 Piece Kimono Tee
- Dots Invasion Dress
- And of course...Classic Overalls
