So this is what I wore to... go to the library to get some ancient texts, to the post office, to the local fabric store, and to stay at home... sewing. Cutting. Hot-glue-ing. Ruining my mom's sewing machine. Hah. But the crafts are so addictive! Je have not made anything post worthy yet. lol. It can be rather embarrassing. But this is coming from the girl who burned water and now bakes amazing artisan breads. Ok, but they are edible. And people like my lentils. Are you there, P. and A.? Haha. Well, who said we have to be talented and pull a Martha Stewart on the first several tries anyways, huh? ...mmm... you do? hmm, well. Ok. Well, who said we have to be talented? lol.

Besos y Abrazos, mis amores!

Sorry i've been such a bad bad blogger. Ah, I've been in Boston and the suburbs since the last entry. J'aime Boston! C'est tres cool et fun. The perfect break from super-industrial, surrounded by coal-plant cities, no? Well, here is one of zeee recent Chloe' acquisitions. Yes, Boston and Cambridge are, indeed magical. This dress is a size too large, but it was nothing that a sleeveless jacket could not fit, right? No? What? Butterfly?

Have you ever been addicted to hand-made looking things? Lately, DIY projects have taken this head by storm. It's addictive! There are already gifts for P. and some early HanuChrisKwanzaa presents even wrapped up in Martha Stewart-like formats. Hahaha. The ruffly belt here was a J.Crew-bridals inspired project from the ChicSteals blog.

XOX!

As I look at these pictures, I realize how obsessed I've been about this dress. Something about the simple silhouette and the knit material is strangely irresistible. Sometimes je wish it had long sleeves. Quite often, actually. But then it goes with a cashmere black turtleneck. It is totally glam-night perfect and jammie-level comfortable. As if to be cozzied-in on an air-plane and then, right after landing, to a meeting with a blazer and heels or out to dinner with some diamonds, bare legs, and stilettos.
