Hullo Interworld!(<—Does that make sense? Interworld? Is this a futile attempt at combining the words “Internet” and “world” for cool and quirky effect, i.e. “Interwebz?”)
I am not sure who still updates themselves with this blog as I myself haven’t blogged in ages. *Cough cough* Argh, are those moth balls in my mouth? Ewww, I think I just ran into a months old spider web. I HATE the musty smell of attic. Time to clean up!
Every time I come back to blog, I always promise my 1.5 readership that I’ll be better at updating. However, as my blogging patterns suggest, my promises are rather empty and soulless. So, I will refrain from making any “I promise to update weekly” remarks and stick to simply “I’ll update when I feel like it.” Although…I am trying to be more disciplined about my writing so perhaps making promises to update weekly will help me…? Ugh, too much thinking. This is a BLOG.
Anyway, the reason why I’m blogging now is because I discovered the neatest thing and I have some time on my hands to share the neat thing I found! While I’d update my Twitter or Facebook status to say something like, “OMG, check this out! <insert web link here>,” or “I THINK I’VE FOUND MY NEW HOBBY <insert web link here>”, those features do not have the word capacity to ramble on about why I love this neat thing and how it’s “inspired” me to try to go DIY (I know, please don’t barf. I can’t believe I said that either but it’s recession times SO!).
Several months back I found out about a clothing line called Built By Wendy. The clothes are super cute in a girly but tomboyish way which I’ve realized is totally my style when it comes to everyday wear. They also have a 1950s feel, as if Wendy the designer used patterns from grandma’s sewing kit and, of course, “updated with a modern twist.” Ladies fashion magazines sure do love those phrases, huh?
I’m totally digging the look below, specifically that shirt. Effortlessly casual but a touch dressy. It’s a look that can be dressed up or down, a look that is gold for someone as practical and protective of her pocket as me.
While I love the clothes, my concern is how they would look on my short and roly body. I am not lithe and do not have a willowy frame and yet it seems these kind of clothes look best on that body type. Zut. You can imagine then how ecstatic I was when I found out Wendy has a sewing book and sewing patterns, perfect for customizing and tailoring her style of clothing to suit many body types.
