We’ve had a hectic week this week (I’m back to work part-time and we’re getting used to a new schedule!) so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend with not too many plans other than a mommy/daughter shopping trip Sunday while my husband golfs…can’t wait!
I thought I’d dedicate today’s “couple things” post to New York Fashion Week. I tell ya, I can’t wait for Spring, 2013 with all the colors and patterns that will be out!
Backstage at Nanette Lepore’s show.
New York Fashion Week according to Fern Mallis, the woman who started it all.
Here’s a great recap of all of the shows with reviews and slideshows.
And one last favorite to share from Milly, whose Spring, 2013 collection is quoted as being “futuristic” and “sexy” – 2 words never used to describe her clothes before… Here’s the entire line, but I love this dress in particular…
Have a great weekend!
I just love elbow patches, don’t you? So preppy, so random, so cute. It seems this season they are taking new shape! I just ordered this sweater from ASOS (extra 20% off, too!). I can’t wait to wear it this fall with my indigo pants.
I mentioned last week that I was going to make iron-on Peter Pan Collar shirts – well, I made the one for our baby girl and it came out SO cute! I saw in my September issue of Martha Stewart Living that she has great download-able patterns to print and make your own tees (and bags and jewelry as well), including one for a Peter Pan Collar shirt. It was such an easy, fun project – here is where you can print the clip art to make your own.
I used this iron transfer paper that I bought at Michael’s and then a long sleeve white tee for our baby’s shirt. I followed the directions for the paper and voila – done! Once the pattern was ironed on, I thought something was missing so I added little buttons for a pop of color and 3D effect. It came out great…
Here’s a close-up of one of the buttons.
And what it looked like pre-button.
Note: I was going to make one for myself too, but I ordered the t-shirts online and when mine arrived it had a little stain, boo, project delayed.
