Was going to wait to post this with the skirt, wearing makeup and stuff (especially since my workspace is a mess, I’m in #sweatpantnation and about to walk Emerson), but I just looked back and was so dang happy that I gave this sheet new life🥰 #repurpose#handmade#firstheartyourself

Some of the upsides of living in Chuuk:
🔹 Fresh drinking coconuts are year round
🔹 Everyone is calm and respectful on the roads
🔹 The working culture is relaxed
🔹 The beaches seriously look like this
🔹 It’s never below 26 degrees
🔹 I can run all my errands in an hour
🔹 People are friendly, welcoming, protective of my privacy and personal space, and strangers have gone to the effort to make sure I feel comfortable as a visitor in their community and to apologise if anyone has made me feel otherwise
I might miss Australian supermarkets and our gluttonous overconsumption of resources (🍕🍦🍔), but I’m not in a rush to get home this year.

We keep sharing the amazing fact that glass can be nearly unbreakable when cut into tiny sections like the glass beads our jewelry is made of. Although intuitively you may not relate to this idea right away, it may become more comprehensible when you think of walking on the beach... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you think about it, the sand you are stepping on is made of billions of tiny grains of glass. Each one shifts and moves under our weight, but cannot be broken...

Would love a dip here right now 😍💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is my second pair of The 101 Trouser by Merchant & Mills. These are the most comfortable and easy pants to wear. I love them! The pattern is just beautiful and the instructions are concise and easy to follow. This pair is made from medium weight 100% cotton herringbone flannel in charcoal and I am finding it to be very warm and cozy. I made them in a size 10 and I wear a US ready made pant size of 6 and I am about 5’5”. I sewed up the cropped and tapered version, as I wear this style year round and it works great in the winter with stockings and ankle or Chelsea boots. I made my first pair in black linen/rayon, also in the cropped and tapered version, with only one modification; I added 3/4” elastic instead of the drawstring. I did make modifications to this second pair. First, I decided to shorten the crotch rise by 2 1/2” and add a fly extension piece to both sides of the fronts so that I could make a more realistic looking faux fly...it opens as if there is a real zipper there but it is actually stitched up. Again, I added 3/4” elastic instead of the drawstring. I will be making more of these pants...I see endless possibilities with this awesome pattern. My artistic daughter snapped these photos this afternoon with this magical snow coming down! A fun time! #merchantandmills#merchantandmillspattern#merchant&mills #101trouser#merchantandmills101trousers#elasticwaistpants#makeyourownpants#makeyourownclothes#diyfashion#slowfashion#slowfashionmovement#sewingpattern#sewinglove#ilovesewing#sewsomething#winterfashion#pnwwinter#snowphotography#pnwsnow

As hemp is extremely durable, hemp socks are the perfect investment for long-lasting, daily-wear, naturally-good socks.

What’s your favorite national park? 🏕 There’s something special, of course, about each, but how awesome is this photo of #Zion?!
I'm currently sitting in front of the fire, staring at these new color combos 😍 and trying to think warm thoughts. I ran a race this morning (you may have seen in my stories) on the frozen lake and I'm still chilled to the bone (just call me Elsa...actually, I prefer Olaf ⛄)! It was a blast but opting for my running kicks & spikes in place of snowshoes - rookie frozen lake run move! 🙈 I'm in need of some serious, warm summer vibes and I think these colors are doing the trick (in addition to my wool sweater, wool socks & fleece lined everything 🤣)! After watching fireworks tonight (yes...back out in the ❄) I've decided to not move from the fire for the rest of the night! Wherever you are this weekend, I hope you're enjoying and staying warm! Xo

Not just another pretty face. Cutlery roll ups aren't just for cutlery. They are also great for organizing your makeup brushes!
This is my small vollection of makeup brushes that were all given to me second hand over the years.
DM to purchase ~ GORGEOUS late 30s/early 40s pink rayon crepe dress with peaked shoulders. Has crescent shaped shoulder pads and side metal zipper. Belts in back, which means you should be smaller than the actual waist measurement provided below. Buckle is mother of pearl. Dress is structurally sound but has a few cosmetic issues, such as tiny holes and some spots. See photos. Presents beautifully but priced accordingly. $128 + shipping.
Waist: 34” (best for 30”-32” because it needs to belt smaller in back. It won’t belt as cute if any larger)
Hips: up to 47”
Length: 39” from neck to hem
I’m definitely guilty of recycling my outfits too often! I was dying to find something pink but practical for Valentine’s Day, but hey, this is the one I really LOVE. And that’s what this day’s all about, right?!
Wishing everyone a day with lots of love, both for yourself and for others. 🧡🧡🧡

Natural color therapy after another NY blizzard. This goldenrod dyed wool sweater is my security blanket all winter long. I swear, it emits the warmth of those golden fields swaying in the late summer sun, the bees making a steady stream between the flowers and the hive, the late sunsets arching over our garden like a carnival of color.
Goldenrod on wool is one of my favorite natural dye combinations. But planning to dye this secondhand wool sweater in early September meant I entered a dance with early autumn that would last all winter and beyond. Like a chef planning seasonal meals, I built my dye recipe off the season. September meant goldenrod for miles so my wool was waiting.
One thing that’s become obvious after six years of my Slow Fashion project, Make Thrift Mend, is that my wardrobe has to exist outside of trends. To sustain my work with mending, natural dyes, and sustainable style that meant my clothing had to last for years. Because I was making the investments of time, materials, and handcraft, and I wanted those investments to last.
I’ve mended these jeans 14 times over six years. I dyed this secondhand sweater with goldenrod flowers I foraged from my neighbor’s field while pulling my young boys in a cart, a stainless steal pot held between their tiny bodies until it was stuffed with flowers. It was hot that day and I kept my pants tucked into my boots to fend off ticks in the high grasses. My straw hat sweat against my forehead which sweat against my straw hat.
I can’t buy these garments. I can’t order them. I can’t even have them made for me because they evolved with me over time. The mending reveals itself with wear—the patches and stitches are built in layers and succession. The dye holds memories of temperature, time, place, and human connection. Slow Fashion cannot happen overnight. It must be built. It must evolve, slowly, one garment at a time.
Details: Secondhand wool sweater dyed with goldenrod flowers, mordant was alum; jeans mended by me; top secondhand; boots secondhand too. #makethriftmend#lovedclotheslast

Preparing something new to share and I’m oh so excited about it 🙃

Well, how are you getting on? Have you gotten a chance to make a mood/vision board? Have you been brave enough to dig into your closet? Or are you still just mulling over the possibilities?? If you’re ready for Day 3 of the Capsule Wardrobe Series, keep reading!
Day 3 is going to combine a bit of Days 1 & 2. You may think you could skip this step, but it does have importance! Take a look at your vision board. Are you noticing a theme? Is there a piece that keeps showing up (like a striped Breton tee)? Are you realizing that you may actually already own some similar items in your collection? Think carefully, because it’s possible you’ll even find something in the “no” or “maybe” piles - this totally happened with me. It is now time to play and actually have some fun! What outfits are you envisaging with your “yes” pile? What is already there and ready to go? Are they easily interchangeable? This is key for me because we love to travel but I refuse to do anything but pack light. So having compatible pieces that can be swapped around gives me flexibility to just bring along a few things. This photo is an example. I can 100% move around every single thing in this image and get an outfit I’d be happy to wear. You’ll see three pieces are handmade, and even the jeans on the right are patched up - something we’ll discuss more tomorrow. Keep a hold of all your piles for now. And those of you with multiple capsules (ie. work vs casual, cold vs warm weather, etc) will need to repeat these steps for each one. 💕
Shared a little more detail about this dress in my stories yesterday (saved them to highlights). The back has a lovely deep keyhole and the neck closure is so clever. Excited to wear this again, once the weather decides to calm down and stay a decent temp! 🌬🥶
