My How Time Flies

I can’t believe this year is almost over! I started this challenge on October 1, 2012 and I am heading into my final month. It is surprising how much one can learn in a single year.

Hubby wanted to take a quick drive to the Premium Outlets in Livermore on Saturday. It was a nice little get away, but while in the stores I couldn’t help but think about how nice it has been this past year to focus on how I can improve my own sewing skills. Focusing on how to get the proper fit, fabric content and technique.

Now don’t get me wrong there were some gorgeous things that I wouldn’t mind hanging in my closet . . . with stores like Michael Kors, Elie Tahari, Kenneth Cole, Prada, Dooney & Bourke, Coach, Talbots, Theory, 7 For All Mankind etc. and that is just a few, how could there not be. But this trip I found myself looking at the fabric content, cut, checking out the linings and seams etc . . . I think I am forever ruined.

I guess I will probably be shopping more for accessories to go along with my “homemade” outfits. Afterall they did have my favorite shoe store for shoes (Cole Haan) and accessories (Fossil).

Side note: While there I did decide on my fall colors . . . black, white and gray . . . I’ll probably add a pop of red! Pretty basic, but I want to see what I can do with it. Come to think of it maybe I’ll make that my challenge for 2014.
