Embroider Me!

I’m big on embroidery right now, not only because it suits the chilly weather, but also because it has me resembling a home-ec teacher from the 70s, which of course I really dig.

As I work my way toward this Winter’s wardrobe, I’m finding myself drawn to more and more to chunky textures, like the embroidery on this felted vest. Also in this category, I’ve picked up a pair of multi-colored woven trousers (dubbed “serious pants” by my Studiomate Rob), some thick wooly sweaters, and a truly MAGICAL poncho that I have not been able to stop wearing (it’s like walking around inside a hug).

    The last picture reminds me of the jellyfish we saw at Monterey Bay Aquarium. Nice exhibit of biomimicry fashion.

    I’m wearing the MAGIC PONCHO today, Suella. My Studiomates think I look like a Rainbow Clint Eastwood!
