Daily Outfit

So, what do you think of the new layout? I've been meaning to change it for quite sometime and yesterday I spent almost two hours figuring out the new template design feature. I'm quite pleased with the result. Because I have no idea how to graphic design stuff on the computer, I took out my pencil and sketchbook and drew myself a new banner then I embroidered it, took a picture and cropped it in iPhoto. The yellow polka dot fabric is one of the first fabrics I used when I was learning how to hand sew when I was a child. And "The Owl and the Pussycat" is my favourite poem.
Last week after hours getting lost in all of those beautiful images floating around, I finally started my own Tumblr and I've just now signed up for something called Bloglovin' Follow my blog with bloglovin
I think I'm really starting to get the hang of this internetty stuff. I might even start to remember to sign into Facebook more than once every few months. I may even decide to sign up for Twitter, instead of just stalking Stephen Fry on it to find out when a new episode of QI airs.
What I have decided to do is to let you decide on a theme for next months' Vintage Novels posts. It can be anything -an author, genre, decade, nonfiction, essays, whatever. I'll read anything.
I found this skirt last week at my favourite thrift store. It's new, from Australia and I don't think it was ever worn. I really like the abstract print and the ribbon and ric rac around the waist.
