Ok, so, I stole this DIY from the latest issue of ELLE— they used a raincoat (or anorak, if you want to get really British,) but I found this slightly glitzy sweaterdress for $7 yesterday at Second Time Around in Burlington (gotta love thrifting!) and thought it’d be PERFECT. This cold-shoulder looks is so trendy right now, and is a great way to show a little unexpected skin. Here’s how to do it:
Step 1— Find a longsleeved shirt, dress, or jacket that you don’t mind cutting up and making more fabulous.
Step 2— Try it on, and decide where/how big you want to make your cut-outs. A good rule of thumb (shoulder?) is that your shoulder should be easily exposed, and there’s enough “bag” to the sleeve that it drapes and hangs gracefully.
Step 3— After making sure the sleeve is completely lined up one side on top of the other— just match your seams— and after carefully marking your cut lines, use a pair of sharp scissors to cut a half-moon out of the top of your sleeves by the shoulder. One half-moon should translate into a perfectly round, symmetrical hole, if you do it right. (For an easy way to cheat, I laid my first cut sleeve over my second un-cut one, and used it as a guideline to make a mirror image hole the same size. It worked well.)
Step 4— Try it on, and alter further to fit your desires. If you plan ahead and leave some extra fabric to hem it, you can if you want so that you aren’t left with any sharp or uneven edges, but I personally like the way that cut fabric rolls up back into itself. Ta-da! Enjoy your new (old) very fashion-forward look!
XOXO

Spent the afternoon in one of my favorite places— a graveyard. High point of the day was going for a shot behind a broken tree and an adjacent grave a fox had dug it’s hole behind…then falling on the pile of dug up dirt, and landing next to someone’s ulna bone.

Yup. Good thing I don’t scare easily.

XOXO

My weekend in photos— been a busy bee. Relinquished my horse to the barn’s care on Friday, drove back up to Burlington through the most horrible weather ever (torrential downpour, hydroplaning, just wanted to pull over and sob myself to sleep,) for the Dropkick Murphy’s concert, which was awesome, then went over to Bookstock to help out and meet up with my parents again for dinner at Bentley’s (or, as they revealed it’s always been referred to because of reasons now obvious, “Bendover’s,”) on Saturday.

While there, did a spot of celebrity spotting; Jane Lynch of “Role Models” and “Glee” fame was vacationing for a week. S.O: Perfect cover for celebrity-spotting mini-paparazzi while being Booth Bitch. (Do you remember that episode of SATC?)

XOXO

The sound of a siren outside of our building means that we instantly drop everything and bolt for the window with the best view to gape out of while studly young firemen wheel a precautionary stretcher down our pebbled driveway.
You could call it ambulance-chasing. We call it roommate bonding.
"It’s like back in freshmen year when we used to watch Raoul the Latino hottie janitor with bulging biceps vacuum the library across the street from our dorm room window," I reminded Melissa wistfully.
"Oh, Raoul," she laughs. "Whatever happened to him?"
"I know. He really could back that vacuum up."
It must be summer in the city.

I Feel Sexiest In: Perfect morning lighting, his oversize t-shirt, and tousled hair.
The contrast and highlights in this photo completely amaze me all over again every time I look at it, and I love the way a plain white tee can cling to all my curves in just. the right. way. The strain of my hipbone against the shirt is one of my favorite points in this photo; my hands, one in the dark, one in the light, are the others.

Them’s mah stems! My recent photo of my legs from the hotel room this weekend was picked up by Long Skinny Legs, and I feel so lucky and thankful to be up alongside the rest of these Tumblr stunners who undoubtedly have much more gam-length than my 28-inch inseam. I’d like to thank both my mother and my father for giving me such great genetics to work with; even past their 50s, both still have bomb-ass legs.

I love it when other people love my body as much as I do. Rockin’ it for all the short ladies.

XOXO
