Happy weekend! The sun is out and blaring today - hope that most of you are experiencing this lovely weather wherever you may be! Twas the perfect day to do some spring cleaning - I came across some Care Bears from the collection I kept when I was seven as well as an autograph from Corky (Chris Burke) from Life Goes On. Maybe the pic will ring a bell for those of you unfamiliar or too young :)
I was a HUGE fan in like 1991 and we ran into him at the Planet Hollywood in NYC - clearly I had him sign the back of my menu. More of my spring cleaning finds will be shared as I come across them, but I had to take a break for some mid-day basketball watching and drum classing after finding that winner.
The sun brought the shine, so I brought the yellow...
It was a little big, this nightgown, so I took in the sleeves a smidge as well as the upper torso. I wasn't thrilled keeping it a dress as the length was a little weird on me. It hit right at my calves, so I chose to chop it in half and turn it into a top. As it was still billowy post-stitching, I used the excess fabric that I cut off as a belt and cinched the piece at my waist.
Just the right outfit to wear to my drum class on this 80 degree day. Something cool and not too tight to give me perfect range of motion as I beat on the snare and bass trying to nail sixteenth notes.
I kind of love my new accessories - I picked them over my bangles today. Tomorrow, however, the bangles return :)
