Weekend

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAweekend intro

was about frosting. Not cake but frosting. One of Tasia’s famous posts was about how she made too much frosting and not enough cake. Her me-made wardrobe included floral fit and flare dresses, a plaid cape, and even socks that were far from basic. Frosting is fun to make, she (Tasia) said, but there will be no where to wear it if there isn’t Β some cake to go with it too.

I am inches away from finishing my red dress, all that is needed is to insert the zipper. When I hung it up on Tuesday night, the night when I attached the skirt and bottom ruffle to the bodice and the dress finally looked like a completed garment, I couldn’t help but laugh. Where is the world am I going to wear this? Marie Antoinette died hundreds of years ago so she there won’t a tea party anytime soon. My initial plan had me wearing this dress to my friend’s engagement party and thank God I didn’t finish it in time because I think it would have been a little too much!

So I stood in my apartment wondering where and how I could wear my newest creation. My cousin is getting married in early June. Maybe I could pair it flats? Or, I could bedazzle this baby with glitter, sequins, or pearls and put on one hell of a photo shoot with Valerie and Brandy. I’m thinking the latter.

God, I love frosting.

    Beautiful! I can’t wait to see it finished. You could always wear it to afternoon tea at the Four Seasons: http://www.fourseasons.com/philadelphia/dining/lounges/the_lounge/afternoon_tea/

    You could always put it on, do your hair and makeup and swan around the local supermarket pretending you’re on your way to somewhere far more glamourous. Definitely how I would wear it. πŸ˜›

    I say do both! You put so much work into it, wear the heck out of it. Wear it to the grocery store one day just to get some interesting glances. I’m definitely a frosting girl when it comes to sewing. I’m bored by basics so I don’t really want to spend my time making them. I want to make red carpet gowns with beaded lace and floor length skirts and illusion necklines oh my! Of course I don’t make those either, but that’s where my heart lies, so I get you girl…I get you. Oh, and I LOVE the polka dot lining!

    What girl doesn’t love a little extra frosting? I so know what you mean though, I had amassed quite the collection of cocktail dresses a few years back and it took me two years to finally narrow it down to a select few I might actually wear once a year. I think it’s always fun to have those “special” pieces in your collection but the basics are the hard working staples we really can’t live without.

    I always figure if I make a dress for no occasion, perhaps I will have to host an occasion πŸ˜‰

    I’m all about frosting so I say let’s throw the cake out the window! haha
    I caught a glimpse of it on instagram one evening and I could swear I shrieked. God, even other people’s sewing projects make me incredibly giddy. This dress would look stunning in a photo shoot so, regardless of whether the former ends up happening, the latter MUST. – That dog is such a cutie pie!

    That’s the Urbn building, right? I saw a pic of it on BHLDN’s instagram. Now it sounds like I live on instagram – Maybe I do, maybe I don’t. Ha!

    Everyone needs frosting! Wear it to the wedding for sure, and wear it how you want to wear it – so you might get some stares? Who cares! In my opinion, weddings are “frosting’s” time to shine!!

    Hello, I can’t remember how I came across your blog but it is lovely. I say wear it and show it off… too beautiful to be in the closet. Maybe we should all be more in support of daily frosting anyway! πŸ˜‰
