Remix Challenge Day 8- Purple with handmade Scarf

Posted on: March 21, 2013

Still running a fever and having symptoms of this lovely stomach flu… Decided to push forward and show you my look on  my dress form since I have no energy to get dressed… In case you missed the beginning of my challenge, here is where it all began and the details.

A reminder of the previous look of green and purple

This is what I had planned to wear for my Weight Watcher meeting… So you can see that I carried over the grey sweater.  This Gap  sweater has graced my closet for several year and was originally thrifted.  On one shoulder and the opposite sleeve there are flowers and leaves in a felt like material sewn on which I love!   The dress is by Tiana B and purchased via Qvc last year.  I bought it in a size small in anticipation of my weight loss and wore it last spring with the top two buttons undone and a contrasting tank underneath, since it was pulling tight across my chest… Not anymore, losing 40lbs makes a big difference…

And now I would like to call special attention to the scarf.  It is a patchwork design handcrafted from cashmere sweaters and the softest thing ever!  I can’t help myself from continuously touching it!  This was gifted to me by  Cindi Sheanan or KC Tomboy on You Look Fab Forum,  who creates them.
She is super busy with tax season and will be back to making them afterwards.  I thought her e-mail address was on the tag that came with this but it must have been on the note, which I seem to have misplaced.  I can contact her and will repost her information ASAP.  I just didn’t want to wait any longer to show this look since it is now the first day of  Spring.   If you join the forum on You Look Fab, you can send her a message as well!

I would have worn these grey tights and thrifted booties and purse to complete the look!

Dear Readers, I hope you all are well and have not experienced this lovely stomach flu that apparently is extremely transferable.  I hope you all will stop by again tomorrow as I hope to be well enough to show you a different look with this dress and who knows I may put this look on for photos as well!  

Gratitude;  I am grateful that my son is feeling a lot better today.. Now, if only his appetite would return… I am grateful that I was able to take a nap today, which helped this miserable day go by much quicker.  I am grateful that my tow other sons have not caught this nasty bug yet…I am grateful to Cindi for sending me this cozy scarf and choosing such lovely colors especially for me!

Being sick is the pits! Hope you are feeling better soon. The scarf is great. I love handmade items, they are more unique and special.

Been following your blog the past week. Have looked through archives and am inspired by your weight loss and your fashion sense. Thanks for taking the time to post even when you are sick. Hope you feel better soon. Look forward to future posts!

Feel better, hun! I’m inspired by your weight loss, too, and I like the outfit you chose even though you couldn’t model it for us.
