Pointy Kitty and other goings on

I'm sorry for my absence lately. Last week was crazy busy and I'm not used to being crazy busy (outside of home, that is!) so I was WIPED by the time Monday rolled around. I have been sewing, though! I made a flower girl dress! You can see that after the wedding on Saturday. And, a little friend turned 5, so I made her one of these:

I made Natalie the black one one the right several years ago--she was three I think. And every time our friend Kinsley comes over, she finds Pointy Kitty and carries her around and talks to her and pets her. She loves her. So, I made her one :) It was fun! I haven't made something fun like that in awhile, so I really enjoyed it. The Pointy Kitty pattern is FREE here.

In case you're wondering, we did enjoy the military ball! Who doesn't like an excuse to get fancy and eat a nice dinner that you didn't cook?
Here's a poor-quality iPhone pic:

I found some silver shoes at Savers, ha! They were six bucks. I really didn't want to spend a bunch of money on shoes I'd only wear once, so I tried the thrift store and scored. Nice! My dress came from Dillards.

Speaking of Dillards, the Jessica Simpson dress from a few posts ago is from MACY's, not Dillards. My mistake. There were a lot of stores that day, haha! Anyway, a commenter told me that Jessica Simpson has been in the spotlight because of some designer shoes she copied. It's true, I looked it up!! Stinker, Jessica Simpson.

I have plenty of plans for blog posts coming up!! I will try diligently to actually get them posted! I sure do like blogging :)

  1. I actually just watched a little TED talk on the fashion design industry, and how designers, by law, cannot copyright their designs, only their logos. So it is perfectly legal to totally copy an outfit you see, and sell it with your own logo on it. The reason behind it is that clothing is too utilitarian to copyright. For example, since a cuff on a sleeve serves a utilitarian purpose (or a zipper, or a neckline, etc.), no one can copyright the use of a cuff. Pretty interesting stuff!
