Sometimes I get so caught up in sewing garments that I forget it’s important to accessorize your outfit. I generally wind up wearing something that’s been in my jewelry box for some time. However, after loosing one of my favorite pairs of earrings last week, Bret offered to take me out shopping for jewelry!
It’s been awhile since I did this, but I settled on two gold necklaces (one with matching earrings), a pair of gold and silver hoops from Anne Klein, and a new purse. Apparently, I’m attracted to buckles, because every purse that I liked had one somewhere on it. It’s a bit larger than what I would normally carry, but since we’ll be on vacation soon, I figured I had better have something that I could load everyone’s stuff into.
I’ve also made a few fabric purchases – my Fabric Mart swatch mailer arrived yesterday and I couldn’t resist. I ordered several yards of fuchsia French Terry, black and white piques (for Simplicity 3833), and the mystery bundle. Last week, I ordered some of Fabric.com’s heathered camo pink jersey knit, the price seemed just right and it reminded me of Simplicity 3882.
