As this is my first ever Me-Made-May, I thought I should make an effort document it and what I am learning about my me-mades. This first week has been okay, although it is a bit of an effort making the conscious decision to choose from a limited wardrobe selection. Honestly, I thought it would be a bit easier. Having lurked MMMs before I figured it would be simple, but it’s actually proving to be a bit of a struggle, and a lot of forethought is needed. I think this is predominantly because I dislike most of my wardrobe right now, me-made or otherwise.
- Black pencil skirt (before blog)
- Not so Blank Canvas tee
This was a pretty easy outfit. This skirt goes back years, and I wear it a lot, although it fits pretty badly. Luckily you can’t tell from this dodgy PhotoBooth shot. The tee gets worn a lot, expect to see it pop up again this month.
Worn with some jeans and a cardigan from Uniqlo. I felt terrible and had to leave work early, so no photos of me looking pale and sickly I’m afraid.
Feeling better, but not enough for a photo of myself. I’m not very good at it at the best of times. This is a really lovely top to wear, and I find it dresses up jeans without being too, well, dressy.
- Failed Tiramisu
This was a fail, but I like to wear it as a house dress. I’m too pernickity to flaunt the weird side seams and bad hem job outside, but indoors I will twirl away to my heart’s content. It’s so comfortable and I should really make another.
This was my first time wearing this, on a mini trip to Brighton. Whilst it is a closer fit than my polka dot version, it’s still very comfortable. A bit more casual though.
Travelled home on Monday, and got changed into my comfy house dress.
Fail. I failed to wear anything me-made to work. I feel awful for not participating properly. It was hot, a lot of stuff was still in the wash, I panicked. I am going to wear my pjs tonight though to make up for it.
- I wear more polka dots than I realised.
