During the week running up to the beginning of May, I attempted to wear as many non-me-made garments (particularly pants! (knickers/panties/whatever)) as possible so I could get the rest laundered and ready. This actually proved more difficult than you might think as I reckon I've got more me-mades in my current wardrobe than shop bought or thrifted clothes. And as with the last challenge, I made sure I was in me-made pyjamas by midnight before Day 1 officially kicked in!
Me-made tunic top, jeggings and pants. Plus, I wore my Saint cardigan in the evening when I went out for a drink and a chinese. My dates for the evening, Matty and Patty:
That's Patty on the right, my boyfriend and long-suffering official me-made photographer. That's his mate Matty on the left. I think he (not so-) secretly wants to appear on this blog in case anyone out there thinks he's cute and leaves a comment!
Me-made bustier T-shirt, tulip skirt, pants and later jacket (see image below). Oh, and me-made hangover from the night before when the 'drink' I went out for turned into 'drinks' plural. Nobody go to Bar Suec in Gracia for a few days if you were hoping to have some Kahlua, you won't find any there.
So, on Day 2 I was really trying to wear garments that I usually tend to bypass for whatever reason when chosing what to wear. Also, I make lots of black garments, a gazillion navy garments, yet have a almost allergic fear of combining the two colours in an outfit. This was a lesson to teach myself it is possible. Sometimes I really shock myself with how rigid my 'garment combo making' rules tend to be. Challenging that is one of the aims to make Me-Made-May 'bigger, better and brighter' than Me-Made-March.
Me-made jeggings, jersey dress and pants. It's been pi$$ing with rain all day and I had to spend much of it traipsing around the streets in leaky shoes (the fear of contracting trench foot was becoming a real concern) and I was very grateful I had the leopard coat to turn to.
