Weardrobe Conference

For a hermit like me, it's sure going to be a busy couple of weeks. First up: The Weardrobe Conference!

I think it will be good for me to get out, meet new people and do something other than work at my sewing machine. That being said, I'm still a little nervous about it. One of the other bloggers mentioned that it felt like she was preparing for the first day of school. That's exactly what it feels like!

I'm excited to meet all of the girls, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a bad dream or two about being the little wallflower in the corner. What can I say? I am a little awkward and shy in social situations. Time for me to [wo]man up and make my mommy (who is the social antithesis of me) proud. After all, this is going to be a pretty killer experience; I feel very fortunate to be a part of it.

p.s. Remember that last post I made, about how I don't think of myself as a fashion blogger? Well I think it's time I refined my approach a little bit, lest I embarrass myself. These girls are no joke. I suggest you all check out their blogs - they're definitely worth adding to your list.

  12. Here’s a list of tools you will need to start: Jewelers’ pandora jewellery wire cutters - If you can only afford one pair, get memory wire shears. pandora charms These are designed to make clean cuts on tough memory wire, so can also be used for pandora charms uk softer wires. Chain-nose pliers sometimes called cheap pandora charms needle-nose pliers – Very versatile for picking up and grasping small items, pandora charms sale bending eye pins, closing jumps rings, even closing crimp beads. discount pandora charms Round-nose pliers – Used for creating loops on beaded head and eye pins. Can also be used for winding your own jump rings and as the second pliers you’cheap pandora ll need for closing jump rings. Optional pliers – Wire-looping pliers which have several graduated circumferences to allow you to form perfectly uniform jump rings and loops in place of the pandora discount uk round-nose pliers mentioned above. Crimping pliers which have little notches to allow you to both flatten a crimp bead and then bend it to form a rounded finished look instead of the flat crimp you pandora uk get using the chain-nose pliers. As for materials, I recommend some assortment packs of beads in coordinating colors, some decorative metal spacers, seed beads in both silver and gold These can serve as spacers and beautifully set off pandora sale your other beads., tube-shaped crimp beads Buy the best you can find – these are what hold it all together!, head and eye pins. Other than that, let your choice of project be your guide. You might want some silver or pewter charms.

  13. I have a lot of work to do today, which means I'm doing a lot of procrastinating. I've only been reading your blog for a few months, and today i've had a chance to look through some of your archives. Even your 2008 style is pretty hoppin'... and better than that, it's real style. Of course I love fashion, but it's hard to relate to someone rockin' a skirt that costs more than the rent in the crappy studio apartment you're busting your ass to pay for. So... I just wanted to say thanks for being something fresh. You deserve to be where you are. xo
