So I decided to leave the decision up to fate, in a way. I gave myself the challenge of refashioning a wearable shirt in 1 hour or less. If it turned out, I would go. If not, I'd stay home. The shirt I had in mind was partly inspired by Psycho Sue and partly by a blouse I had gotten a while back. I loves the top of it and how it fit me but the bottom of it was plain and boxy and I am not built that way. ;)
So I did my favorite hack and sew to make the top of this blouse into a empire-waisted baby doll style shirt with some fabric I am in love with! It needs a little tweaking but it was good enough to wear for a couple hours last night and to work today. :)
Here is a mirror shot in the rest room (since I don't have an accessible full length mirror at home). I am just wearing it with black pants for work but last night I wore it with a pair black denim capris and my skullified shoes.
This is a detail shot of the fabric. Can you see why I love it? :)
Here is a better shot of the blouse top I used. I love the collar and ruffle detail around the button placket!
It is warm in here so ignore my bemused expression and messy hair. :P
I even took some time and accessorized today! This is the zombie pin-up bow I got from Cute and Creepy a while back. I love bows but with my short hair, I always feel weird wearing them, especially to work. But the shirt is making me feel sassy!
The zombie pendant is one of my own creations. As soon as I get my butt in gear, I will be opening up my own Etsy shop. I have the stuff and some okay pictures. But I've been a combination of lazy and overly social as of late. Life could be worse, right? :)
