This is not an outfit

I love the weather right now. What has made it more perfect is that it rained for three or four days this past week and cleared the air. I am one of those nerds with allergies, so I was grateful for that.

I've been outside a lot.

I'm also trying to get back on the Singer. I had taken a long hiatus due to an unreasonable fear of sewing. I suddenly became self-conscious about my abilites after a few small failed projects. Today I modified a vintage skirt, and it was only a partial failure! I'll have to ease back into the whole thing. And on a more practical note, stock up on thread.

P.S. -- When I went to Manhattan at the beginning of the month, I wore the above shoes and apparently got several double takes. I was surprised -- I expected New Yorkers to be less phased by gaudy footwear. Am I crazy for thinking that?

I think it's safe to assume that the people gawking at your shoes were tourists. They probably thought to themselves, "Look at that crazy New York Fashionista!"

Did you use a time machine to take that picture? The cat looks like lewis minus about 15 pounds.

Wow, that didn't even cross my mind for some reason, haha. Good powers of deduction, Watson.

I thought of you when that cat came up to me. I thought, "This cat looks skinny. It's probably normal size though, and I'm just used to seeing Lewis."
