Idle Hands


Ever since I was a wee one, I've succumbed to the devil when faced with boredom. You know that saying : "Idle hands are the devil's playthings"? Well, I am am a living testament to that.

You see, this lovely chiffon skirt used to be a dress. I was looking aimlessly (and out of boredom) through my mother's closet when all of a sudden the color yelled "take me, now!" And I did. And I butchered it. And I made this skirt. And there's a chance that when my mom figures out her dress is missing I might die. But, it was worth it. The material is perfect for hot sticky weather.

I wore it to go out to a swanky lil' restaurant & lounge called Purple Rain (cue Prince's song) with some friends. I fully intend to go back there simply for the service and ambiance.  It's a place to go when you want to escape suburbia and feel ritzy. And the food, while very Food Network-y, was good. I especially loved the beignets with Kahlua creme. I've been wanting to try some ever since I saw them in The Princess & the Frog. How cultured of me.
