i, devra of puu’s door of time, hereby endeavor to wear at least one me-made-garment for each work day of may, 2014. i also endeavor to wear me-made garments (at least one per outfit) for the duration of my NY-LON trip between may 15 and may 20.
so here’s the thing. it’s my first official me-made-may. i’ve never jumped in before, but as my handmade wardrobe has grown and changed and i’ve mixed up entirely new outfits and combos that i never could have imagined, i realized i wanted to focus a little bit on how i like to wear and style my DIY.
couple that with carolyn’s recent question about professional wear, and i had a few parameters. and a caveat: obviously, in a properly conservative work environment, most of my outfits would (at a minimum) get me sent straight to HR for a lecture on appropriately professional and feminine business attire. and don’t get me wrong, i work for one of the largest REITs on the east coast. but i’ve also been here for five years, and have demonstrated that i can dress like a grown up when i have to, so most people accept me as part of the scenery. so here, then, is my documentation of how i style my outfits for a professional environment.
that, and i spent most of my weekends this time of year in the garden. and i actually wear a bunch of me-made t-shirts while i do that. but i think there is a limit to how many times my mom jeans, foul-weather boots and firefly t-shirt would be tolerated as fashion.
but this week i am forsaking the garden for the WORKROOM SOCIAL POPUP PARTY!
will you be there??
