Don’t Touch Your Face, Em!

I haven’t posted in quite a while. Last fall, I made a long distance move, lived in an apartment for a while, then went house hunting. After that, it was remodel, decorate and move again! Then I spent time enjoying my new city followed by some minor health issues.

Ok enough excuses. Thanks to COVID-19 and staying at home, I’m BAAACKK!!

I’m always reminding myself not to touch my face…and to wash my hands. I found this shirt a few weeks ago. It is part of a set put out by American Bazaar as a group gift.

!gO! Orange

I should be unpacking my Friday and Saturday sale purchases as well as everything I got from the two hunts I did this week, but as usual, I got distracted by a sale ad and wandered off to !gO!. I hadn’t been in this store for about three years and was delighted by some of the things I saw. This dress is the current group gift.

Another Chance

Sylvi of b[ELLE] sent me another version of her bellbottom/top outfit and I thought “Whew! I can get a second chance at doing a promo shot!”. Reminder to self– never ever try to do a photo and post when I’m tired, short on time or hungry. That day I was all three!

Notice the flowers on the pants–they almost shimmer in the light. Gorgeous!

Hippy, Hippy, Hooray!

I finally took the plunge and got a Homestead. This will allow me to make my own backdrops, set land forms, textures, weather and more! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and today was the day!

Today’s post was inspired by the latest creation from my friend, Sylvi, of b[ELLE]. This top and bellbottoms set has a color change HUD for each section. The pants have the most GORGEOUS embroidery down one leg. You can see some in the photo, but I admit I didn’t quite do it justice with my classic cross-legged hippy pose.
