Wardrobe Wednesday!

The lovely Clare over at Green Valley Crafts has begun a new little challenge for us bloggy ladies. It's not a new challenge in that a lot of bloggers around the world take part in similar challenges, but it is new for us.. and maybe for you?
Every Wednesday we will post a picture of an outfit we've worn that week. (Doesn't have to be on that day)
You can add the details of what you wore and where you got it, if you want, ala Wardrobe remix styles, or not. It's up to you. But the whole idea behind it is that we might inspire each other to get out of our trackies and start feeling good about our older-post-baby-or-not-frumpier-than-before-selves. Anything that offers that possibility is a must in my book! So here goes, my first Wardrobe Wednesday:






The shoes are from The Warehouse, the tights from my sister in London, the singlet is from Glassons and the cardi is from The Sallies. The cowl is the only thing I have knitted this Winter (other than a failure of a baby cardi..) and is made with this pattern. I wish I had made it wider though.
The skirt was originally made by 'Woolworths', bought for $1 at The Sallies and then altered by me. I cut about 4 inches off the bottom, took off the original belt loop bits and added oversized, patterned ones. Easy peasy, and much prettier. You can't beat $1 clothing!

Look forward to seeing what you've been wearing too! Just blog about it on a Wednesday and then, if you like, leave a link in the comment of Clare's WW post each week. Cool bananas.

  5. You look great, I dont think I have ever seen you looking anything but great! I wish I had your talent for 'finding' things and altering them. I just dont seem to have the vision.

  12. Hey Hey! I want to make this cowl. Did you use circular needles, or just knit it on straights??? I don't have circ's.
