Alicia 3000?

October 3, 2008

Not really, but my best friend (who I work with) commented that we’re a lot like Outkast – very different, but when we come together, it’s a wonderful thing.  Clearly I’m the Andre in the duo.

My outfit today made that very clear.  Especially when standing opposite someone in a grey shirt and jeans.  I felt like a neutral-colored gumball machine.  In a good way.

I’m so glad it’s finally cooled off (mind you that in L.A., it’s no surprise for the temperature to drop 24 degrees from one day to the next).  I was more than happy to don my textured thick tights to work under that skirt I made.

You don’t know how happy I am to finally be able to wear the mounds of sweaters I have in my closet now.  I just hope it stays like this for longer than a weekend.

After work today, I went fabric shopping at Mood and got some REALLY cool stuff.  I have ideas for all of it, so stay tuned.  *unnecessary evil laugh*

Have a great weekend, guys!  I was already well into mine before I left work, LOL.  I have a couple of birthday parties to attend and some relaxing (hopefully) and sewing to do.  Toodles!

    @ Duckey – of course not!

    @ Tamika – sure did! Times are tough. LOL. And that camel fabric is leather. I lucked up and found a piece of a hide, so I didn’t have to pay a whole lot for it.
