Autumn Plaid Skirt

This Saturday I used my Burda Young 7229 pattern to make this Fall/Winter skirt. I really love it! I feel like this is the most "finished" piece of clothing I've sewn yet. I tend to get lazy and I take short cuts, which I regret later. I think I will use this pattern again once I find some good fabric.

I wish I had the motivation to take some nicer photos outside, but it's chilly here in Alaska (it snowed yesterday) and I don't feel like driving out to place where there are no other people just to take pictures. 

I found a few great vintage pieces on my trip home that I will have to take photos in. I am also anxiously waiting for my wedding photos to arrive in the mail! I know I'll be doing another blog re-vamp once I get my wedding photos. I cant seem to get a design I love, because I can't come up with something personal enough that is also pretty. Wedding photos will do the trick! Everything was so beautiful and pink!

Leaving Home

I just made it back to Alaska and I'm not very happy to be here. I had a really great time in New York, the best wedding in the world, a dream honeymoon, vintage clothes shopping and lots of time with my husband. I'm so sad it's over.
I'll have to wait until Christmas to see him again.

I had a lovely afternoon with my husband at the lighthouse. We took a small hike out to take some photos as it started to drizzle. I had never been there before - I love how quaint the east coast is.

Talkeetna Weekend

In less than 4 days I'll be on my way home for my wedding! I'm spending my last weekend before the big day in Talkeetna. Down town is so adorable! It has a lot of touristy gift shops, but I found a really great wind chime in the shape of a dead fish. I'm excited to hang it outside when my husband and I finally get a place together!

A Day at the Fair

My friends and I went to the fair today! It was really chilly and drizzled the whole time, but it was still a nice way to spend my long weekend. I've been obsessed lately with vintage hairstyle videos on YouTube, so I decided to do a pin curl set the night before and do a little Rosie the Riveter look. I was so excited when I found the leopard print bandana at Michaels Craft store.
Since I don't do rides at carnivals, I pretty much just look forward to the food... In this case, a doughnut burger! it was delicious! I also got some nachos and crab bisque.
