Wardrobe Wednesday – Heavenly Homemade

I am VERY excited about this month’s theme for Wardrobe Wednesday – Heavenly Homemade.

I so love seeing what other people make and wear…. and ….. (following a very small pause where I get very excited!) … I am the guest judge of the month! I know, I am busting my buttons with excitement…. 🙂

Which means I made a prize (the other denim bag I made and showed last Thursday) and Nin has done an interview with me and taken photos of my wardrobe – it feels like the pinnacle of blogging fame when someone wants to interview you on their blog – well it does to me.

It also means I have to pick the winner which is the downside of the privilege – I hate judging things unless it’s Project Runway from the safety of my own couch, but I digress.

This week I am wearing the dress I made last year for my sister’s wedding. It’s made from a New Look pattern – I currently have 3 dresses in this pattern in my wardrobe and another cut out ready to make up.

The Atlas took great delight saying silly things to try to make me laugh during the photo shoot – the man is an idiot (it’s one of his most endearing qualities).

Outfit –

Dress – handmade by me 2011

Shoes – $30 on sale (down from $120) in 2006 I have worn these so much they starting to fall apart.

Pearls – on loan from my sister – they belonged to a friend’s grandmother

Earrings – tiny wee flowers from Korea, birthday gift in 2009

Jacket – op-shopped and hand me down from my sis – just started wearing this last year. LOVE it.

Brooch made for me by Ann in a tin swap last year.

Sunnies – $5, I know I am wearing them inside but I literally just stepped in and made requested The Atlas take the photos immediately – so I forgot to remove them.

Go over to Nin’s and have a look at what people are wearing and see if my interview is up and why not join in???
