Fashion Therapy - Welcome to the Jungle

The last day of Me-Made-May! Phew, it's been both a long and interesting month. I am glad I did it, it really got me thinking about what I like and don't like, and I'm more amped on sewing. Sometimes I was hard pressed to compose an outfit that I liked that included something I made; I'm looking forward to some solely store-bought outfits in June! Check back soon for the last May outfit pic: what I wore to see MGMT.

The weather has grown beautiful again, just in time to debut the latest dress I made. To go animal-print overboard, I wore complimentary shoes & bracelet. I Googled  pictures of leopards and cheetahs, but I couldn't really discern a difference between their patterns, so I guess I'll just assume I'm wearing both. Gotta rep all the cat breeds in one outfit.

I wore this to work where I have to reach overhead quite a bit, so I have on cut-offs under the dress for safety reasons.  Anyone who's a fan of Arrested Development will understand why I was giggling to myself all day about being a Never Nude...
