Today Janssen wrote about having a blogging crisis. What to write about? Well, since I’m running into the same problem, let me link to someone else’s blog — enjoy their creativity and cleverness so you don’t notice how uncreative and unclever I have been lately.
Kathleen Dougherty is one of those people that I want to be. Just go check out all the cool things she makes! Specifically this awesome Anthropologie-inspired sweater:
Now I’m not just posting about this because I get entered in her giveaway for this pretty sweater (although that’s a bonus)…I’m posting about it because it’s inspiring me to sew and create prettier pieces out of simple storebought items. If I find clothing pieces that I like and can’t afford, I’ll just make them myself. Now, that’s sort of a bold statement, cause I’m really not that good of a seamstress. But I think I could handle something a little simpler like adding pretty lace to a plain cardigan. Do you think you could do something like this??
And if you click on her blog, you’ll see she did this for $6. Anthropologie is selling it for $118.
Now if you thought before that you couldn’t make this yourself, you better rethink that because that is a bargain you CANNOT pass up. And just think how awesome it would look in my new Daily Outfits on the sidebar.
