This post comes a bit late as I was pokey about getting my pics uploaded, but I still wanted to share them with you. I did a Denim After Dark event at Madewell the first Thursday of this month, and as usual, it was awesome. Above, you see the complimentary beverage of the evening, atop a scrap of jeans I stitched with variegated thread to keep my hands busy.
I loved the way I'd set up my sign and mini-embroideries this time (ahem, I forgot to take pictures, but it was similar to last time.) Anyway, it must have looked cute, because a girl approached in a rather squirrelly fashion, said not a word to me, snapped a few pics of my display, then scampered off. It was quite amusing. :)
I love the collaboration that strikes up when a really excited person has an idea and you just run with it. I usually stick to smaller initials, but this time, a girl sketched out a great idea for two large, disguised E's and I had to try it.
And, on the red theme, here's a snap of a red dress I bought in honor of Valentine's Day (although I of course did not wear it on Valentine's Day:
I like how the Christmas mittens made an impromptu appearance in that one. :)
Do you ever buy clothing you have no intention of wearing anywhere? I do this kind of often, and until I started photographing my clothing, I thought it was pointless. :) But maybe there's something about the texture and feeling of the clothing, the enjoyment you get from it, and the excitement of playing dress-up that is a joy in it itself, and doesn't need to be shared. And plus, where, would I wear this? Come to think of it, it would be kind of fun to just go grab a burger in this dress. ;)
What's the last crazy thing you bought that you have no intention of wearing anywhere? :)
