The middle of winter. What better time to have a yellow theme for the Wednesday Wardrobe Challenge!
It’s also the 15th day of Me Made June today.
- Me-made 1940’s halter dress with Buzzy Bees all over it. Oddly, although this doesn’t have as much yellow in it as other dresses I own, I think of it as my most yellow garment. Perhaps the sunflowers and bees and rainbows make it seem more bright and summery and therefore yellowy. Who knows. *shrug*
- Me-made chocolate brown merino cardi
- Burgundy merino top under the dress (not made by me, sadly)
- Lovebirds necklace by Boh Runga
I wore this to work and home again. Not overly exciting, I’m afraid to say. I did get a few compliments on the dress though – this fabric always makes people smile with it’s awesome retro Buzzy Bees. It made me smile lots too, which is probably why I bought more than 10 metres of it. Eek.
Ain’t that Buzzy Bee cute?!?
I love this necklace. It’s by a New Zealand singer, who designed it in collaboration with the NZ Mint. Two little lovebirds. Cute!
And just because it’s yellow day, here’s some other cool yellow things around my room. (Well, I think they’re cool, anyway!)
Steve and I got these wee guy when we were over in Beijing earlier this year. Year of the Rabbit, and all that.
My complete collection of Golden Hands craft books, from the 1960’s-70’s. I found them at the Opportunity for Animals op shop a while back for the princely sum of $20 for the 18 of them. How could I say no? My arms got rather tired carrying them a few blocks home, though.
Ain’t this tape measure cute? My lovely friend Claire gave it to me for my birthday a few years back. It makes me smile. 🙂
Want to join in the Wardrobe Challenge next Wednesday? The theme is bows!
