frozen treats and secret eats

Wow, two posts within one week?!  Haha.

I’m happy to finally be getting some older photos up on the blog – these ones are from October.  It must have been a warm day though, since it looks like I was dressed for summer!

Well, I just checked and it was in the high 70s that day!  That explains the lack of coat or tights 🙂

Dave and I had plans that evening to visit Less Than Greater Than, a little secret speakeasy hidden in an ice cream shop.  They surprisingly had amazing food and drinks, and we had such a great time!

We knew we were going to end up getting some ice cream at some point that night, so I wore my ModCloth popsicle dress, Betsey Johnson popsicle clutch, and a little ice cream pin.

I have had this dress for over a year, and I can’t believe I haven’t blogged it yet!  It is in fairly consistent rotation, even in the winter.  Just add a pair of thick tights and you’re good to go!

I wore pretty much this exact outfit last December when we were in Orlando for Christmas.  I’m really only mentioning that so I can share this adorable pic with my niece, below 🙂

Well, that’s it for me today.  I’ve got to get back to addressing Christmas cards! Have a wonderful weekend 🙂

Ahhh, another summer memory.

Our friends Sara (In a Nutshell blog) and Cody love a restaurant by the seaport area in Boston called The Barking Crab.  Dave is obsessed with seafood, so of course he was down.  I, on the other hand, don’t like crabs or lobsters (the restaurant’s specialty), but it seemed like a great opportunity to wear my new(ish) Lindy Bop dress!

diy pixel dress

I think this is the best garment I have ever made.

I still consider myself on the beginner side of intermediate when it comes to sewing, since I have followed commercial patterns and not much else.  But I felt as though my skills got a little more refined with this one, since I adapted a pattern, and had to deal with print matching (a new concept for me!).

It all started when I found this incredible pixel fabric, and knew it would be perfect for a dress to wear to PAX East (on our non-cosplay day).  For some reason, I see it as a floral print – but maybe I’m just imagining things? 🙂
