"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Suddenly totally obsessed with girl scout uniforms (in addition to the usual obsession over boy scouts)

Suddenly totally obsessed with girl scout uniforms (in addition to the usual obsession over boy scouts)

Yesterday:
 Jacket - thrifted, vintage. It think it once came with a dress
T-shirt - Target
Skirt - thrifted (note the awesome fringe at the bottom that flings around when I walk - so fun!)
Boots - Charles by Charles David

Today I feel like Shelley Long in Troop Beverly Hills, where she chic-ifies all her Girl Scout uniforms into "cocktail frocks."
 Hat/fascinator - thrifted
Shirt - thrifted in Halloween costume section
Pants - Target
Shoes - next

Nothing exciting to report. Stayed home last night and sewed/cleaned. I think I've mentioned that I'm making a Max, from Where the Wild Things Are costume for a friend. My whole house is COVERED in fur. Everywhere I go, every time I sit down, just full of hair. Cutting faux fur is bad, bad news. Fortunately it is turning out rather awesome... "so at least I've got that going for me." (Bill Murray reference anyone?) I also finally started on my Maude Lebowski from the hallucination scene costume (you know, where she's like a viking with boobs made from bowling balls). I nearly cut all my fingers off several times last night trying to saw plastic toy bowling balls in half with a huge serrated knife - oopsy doops? Digits still intact. Score!

Love the idea for the Maude costume! I'm trying to convince Joe to go as the Dude, since he already has the requisite beard, and it would basically just require wearing pajama pants and a cardigan.
