Sorry for my absence from the blog world lately. I haven't been posting or commenting nearly as much as I like to. I've been rather depressed and grumpy these past few weeks. After weeks of searching, I thought I found a place to live, but the landlord gave it to someone else (and didn't bother to tell me...). Now I'm still searching for somewhere. Normally by this time I would have the house decorated for Christmas, my Christmas cards ready to be mailed and my presents all bought and wrapped. So far I haven't done anything.
Last night I decided enough was enough. I set my hair for the first time in weeks, finished editing the youtube video I filmed almost a month ago, and made plans to go for coffee with my best friend. I'm feeling a heck of a lot better now. It's silly how a little thing like setting your hair can make a world of difference. I've been pumping the Christmas music (I really want the Puppini Sisters Christmas album!) and am actually starting to decorate.
Here was my outfit today: (I nearly froze to death taking these pictures. It's getting way too cold to not wear a coat outside!)
Dress: Made by me (from a 1950s/60s pattern)
Snowflake Brooch: Gift
Shoes: Hush Puppies
And here is the youtube video I finally finished:
I have a DIY tutorial planned and will hopefully be able to get back to normal soon. I really need to start making an effort again. The more "vintagey" I am, the happier I tend to be. Time to blast some Bing, put on a nice frock, and get decorating!
