WIWW. Sewing Can't be THAT Hard. Thanks Again.

Linking up here.


shirt: F21 bag: Vintage Coach (FREE from mi madre) shoes: Target belt: Primark watch: Fossil skirt: I MADE IT!
YO!!!!


So. A few things:

1. You are TOTALLY allowed to make fun of me for pictures 2, 3, & 4. Mike made me be all "modely" and they made the skirt look good so they went up. Laugh it up, folks.
2. YES! I made the skirt! And I realize that it looks like material that belongs on the curtains in a child's room, but that's not the point. The point is this: SEWING ISN'T THAT HARD! This skirt literally took me an hour. Is it perfect or professional? Not really, but I don't care, because it's comfy and I like it.
3. I am 6'6" in these shoes. We measured.
4. Said shoes are surprisingly comfy. Seriously. And easy to walk in.
5. Yes, I am standing in a dumpster. The things I do for the blog.
6. Last week I hit 500 followers. You saw the first giveaway here (you can still enter). I want to continue to thank you all by offering you a second giveaway. The rules are the same as last time.

I even knew your shoes were from Target before I looked at your caption. I am a Target-obsessed waste of oxygen.

ALYX!!!!! That is so cute! I love that you made that skirt and it is so cute!!! I actually made a skirt out of an old tshirt the other day, the possibilities are endless ;)

Jessica said...

I love the fabric you used for your skirt! And your shoes could not be more perfect!

Katie @ My Darling Days said...

My oh my Alyx, this shoot was very high-fashionesque, haha. Seriously though, cute outfit and great job on that skirt!

Bethany Reine' said...

way to go on the skirt! i think it looks awesome!

Pia said...

Very cute skirt! I once sewed a pillow and it wasn't a big success...so I never touched a sewing machine again.
And I love the shoes!!

Katrin said...

I know I already told you on Instagram, but I LOVE your skirt, Alyx!

Alana Christine said...

bahahahahaha. I'm sorry but those pictures are epic. In my defense, you did give me permission to make fun!

E :-) said...

I don't think I'll ever do a What I Wore post cause getting dressed just includes shorts and a shirt...not exactly impressive. I love that skirt! It's really cute!

Kristen Seuberling said...

Skirt turned out great! And I laughed out loud at picture #4. You look like such a fashion model that I just couldn't help myself.

I dated someone once who was 6'7". That is impressively tall. Congratulations on owning shoes that make you almost that tall.

TicoTina said...

I came to laugh at you, but it turns out all I can think about is how much I like those shoes!!! lovely job on the skirt, by the way - who cares if the seams are crooked or whatever - if someone is that close to you to check then they need to learn something about personal space.

Nikkiana said...

The skirt came out really cute!

Sewing is one of those things that I really want to learn how to do... I'm just chicken on making that initial investment in a machine, especially since I already have one... Only problem is it's at my parents house in a different state!

~julee~ said...

Super cute, girl! I love your throw-back modeling poses!

Kylie said...

Your skirt turned out cute!

Emily Hope said...

number 4 is my favourite. I've considered saving it as my desktop wallpaper.

Amy @ Picture It said...

Okay, if you weren't so cute and hilarious I might just hate you. For real. Adorable pics and good for you for sewing a skirt on your own. I've tried and failed at easier sewing projects.

Ashley said...

The skirt, the wedges, the model pose...I love it all! I am so impressed!

Keri said...

UHHHH Kudos to you for standing on that dumpster ledge in those shoes...I would be in a cast right now for SURE if I tried to do that! :) Nice job on the skirt! Sometimes I find myself wishing I had a sewing machine.

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

Yeah... so pose #4 cracked me up... You look so serious. Love it! The skirt looks AWESOME by the way! The fabric is all Aeropostale looking... I think. I'm not that stylish... but I think. haha.

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

BWAHA just realized I wrote Aeropostale and meant to right Anthropologie... SEE! SO not stylish right here!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Dude I am JEALOUS, I wish I could sew. That skirt is SO cute.

CC said...

Great job on the skirt! I miss sewing and now need to pull my machine out. ;)

Kelly said...

HAHA OMG I love those first few pictures. Especially the 4th one - such a great pose.

And the first thing I noticed was the skirt - I quickly went to see where you got it. Great job!! It's such an awesome print too!

Brianna said...

First of all - that skirt is KILLER cute.

Two - I'm back from my super secret location. And I remember you were seriously frustrated. Visit my blog to see where I went ;)

Three - Love the giveaways... but I read your blog just to read your blog. You make me laugh.

Four - Crazy f'n jealous that you're 6'6" in those wedges. I'm 5'1". LOL

kimberly rae said...

Loooooveee it!!! I wish I could sew so then I would custom make all my clothes the appropriate length!! Also I love those shoes! Can't believe they have them at target!

lori said...

your skirt is SO cute. and i love those shoes. i tried them on and didnt get them because i felt too tall. you rock em though!!

Sara Louise said...

Check you out getting all crafty! I love anchors, love them! :)
your super model poses rock... watch out Gisele there's a new glamazon in town

No(dot dot)el said...

You are adorable even if you are 6'6 you can still be called adorable. And you are. Wow, so really 1 hour? I keep thinking I want to take up sewing but then somehow I know it won't end well.

Michelle Nelson said...

Good job on the skirt Alyx! I saw that fabric the other day and almost bought it to make a skirt!! I decided I'm not that good at making skirts so I used some fabric I already had at home.

Stephanie said...

Great post and I love your blog! :)

Lish said...

HA!!! YOU ARE CRAFTY!-LIAR! bahaah...I love your skirt, it's so adorable, and I totally love that you are in a dumpster with your newly made skirt :D
Sahring on FB my friend! Thanks for having me participate!

Gretchen said...

I love your blog. Congrats on your new skirt. It looks great. I started making clothes last year and totally know how groovy it makes you feel. Can't wait to get to know you better.

Ansel Leigh said...

Love the shoes!!! Target rocks!

And you rock because you're 6'6" in heels. Seriously, that makes me smile. Just because of your height doesn't mean you should limit your shoe choices!

Natalie said...

you are such a dork! LOL

Lesley said...

First off, the skirt is AWESOME! The fabric is sweet! Secondly, I'm tall (5'10") and I haven't quite gotten to the point where I feel comfortable rocking really high heels or gigantic wedges, so you are my idol :)

Nina said...

And yes, sewing is FREAKING hard! Oh the stories I could tell you.... basically sewing machines and I are not a good mix!
