So this morning, I had an event to attend at Belk at The Summit. It was a "Fall 2012 Fashion Tour". I'll tell you more about that later. Life has been crazy hectic for the last week or so, but I still wanted to make something new to wear. So on Monday, I figured I'd prep and cut and on Tuesday, I'd just "Project Ruway" my way through the day and "Make it Work"! FAIL! I don't know what in the world I was thinking... I, Erica Bunker, am NOT a speed sewer. By 8 pm last night, it was painfully obvious that I wasn't going to finish and I was also having some fitting issues that I needed to work out. I'll tell you about this later too. I'm still deciding whether or not it's worth pursuing, but either way I'll do a review. So I said, "Screw this!" And I poured a glass of wine (or 3), closed my eyes and grabbed the first thing I touched in my closet!
So this is what I pulled out to save my day: Vogue 1087, which is a Donna Karan dress that I made almost 3 years ago. It's an off-white draped bodice sheath. There is just something so classic about Donna Karan's designs. They're so flattering and worth the time to sew. I think I'm going wear another one that I've made soon!
Here is a close-up of my shoes. Great nude slingbacks I picked up at DSW.
And I meet one of the loveliest bloggers today. Meet Katie of Hems For Her.
