As a child, I loved playing dress-ups with my mother’s clothes. I used to handsew outfits for my Barbie dolls. I enjoyed playing with my paper dolls, spending hours to carefully cut out their clothes. Remember those?
I sewed my very first dress for myself at 10 years old (my mom signed me up at a local Singer sewing machine store for a summer activity). As a teenager, I continued sewing clothes for myself and even made a suit for my brother, Johnny – the drummer boy.
My dressing room is my little boutique and every morning, I go “shopping” to choose my OOTD. Sometimes I pick out a top and then decide what to wear with it. Other times I’ll take a scarf or shoes or jewellery and plan my outfit around that.
On this particular day, I wanted to wear this white lace with pearl gray peplum top. I decided to pair it with my white skinny jeans, added an angel wing necklace (a gift from my dear cousin Marion) and metalic sandals.
Do you have fun with fashion?
