As soon as it was on I realized that it would certainly never be a teaching outfit. It was slutty short, and kinda low-cut. I liked the fit, but decided it was just too short for me to wear anywhere. As I was heading back into the change room, I saw a girl come out in the same dress, with leggings on. So maybe it wasn't the dress that was slutty, it was me that was slutty, for considering wearing such a short dress with bare legs. I wound up buying the dress, then some leggings, which I always swore I would never wear. Don't bother telling me that I'm too old for leggings. I have them now, and I've already worn them.
I started the necklace design on Thursday night, and finished, but wasn't thrilled with the final product. After sleeping on it (the ideas, not the necklace itself!), I decided to add some red and green beads directly into the chain, instead of just hanging. I finished it Friday evening, about ten minutes before leaving for my first Christmas party. I'm really happy with the final product, and I got so many compliments on it that I wore it again the following night to another Christmas party. I was told there that I should be selling my beautiful jewelry. For how much I could charge, I don't think I'd be working for a very good hourly rate. I much enjoyed making it though. Thanks mom for giving me inspiration (aka funding) to get moving on a new project.
Happy Holidays to all!
