So, I think I am going to start a new weekly post on my blog called Friday Fessions. Where I fess up some of my deepest, darkest, quirkiest secrets. You know, random thoughts that I think to share but never feel like a whole blog post is worth it.
Today's fessions are all fashion:
- I have to tell you, I'm a pajama girl. I Love fabric, I see & sell all kinds of beautiful amazing fabric. I can make beautiful dresses, gowns, shirts, skirts, etc. But my most favorite thing in the world is a waffle knit top with fuzzy pants. Ask anyone who shops with me, I always go to the "frump", PJ section of Victoria's Secret. If you showed me the most luxurious satin and the softest fleece and told me I had to choose one, I would always pick the fleece. I don't know if this is a flaw or a comfort thing, but honest to goodness, I just love soft, fuzzy, cuddly clothes. (This makes my mom sad.)
- I also have a sickness for argyle. Yep. I have argyle sweaters (I live in FL). I have argyle socks (I live in FL). I buy things I don't even want because they have argyle print on them. Lucky for me, just as I had to throw out a beloved (worn through) pair of argyle socks, they were 3 years old, my friend Robyn remembered that I said I loved argyle and got me a pair for Christmas! I LOVE them! Thanks Robyn!
- Finally, I love old worn in clothes. I steal my husbands shirts before he throws them out and wear them as PJ's. They are so soft. I've been asked by both my husband, and my mother, to, and I quote, "please throw out those ratty pants. please toss that stained shirt that you bum around the house in." I'm much better than I was three years ago. Really. I've improved. I now throw out anything with holes (or upcycle it). I also upcycle or toss out stained clothes. I replace my "going out" clothes every 6 months or so and then replace my "bumming in the house" clothes with the previous "going out" clothes. Don't get me wrong I like to look and feel like a princess as much as the next girl, but you'd probably find a great pair of fuzzy pants under my dress.
Anyone else have some fashion fessions? If you want to share your Friday Fessions, leave a comment with the link to your blog! I'd love to read them!
P.S. Please don't judge me. ;)
