a little bit of indigo and fringe

March 30, 2016

Well, things got quiet here for a couple days and guess who’s all to blame?! Taxes. All is well now and I can finally breathe; I’m so happy to cross that off my to-do list. Woot!

I picked up this African indigo fabric from the flea market with the intention of sewing it into a kimono/jacket. We had a cooler day last week, so I grabbed it to use as a shawl/scarf. I love the feel of the fabric, so I’m definitely going to pick up a few more pieces at the flea market next month. They would make great pillows or combine a few pieces to make a one-of-a-kind quilt. The wheels are churning with ideas of things to do with this fabric. I will report back with what I end up turning this one into.

My go-to shoes are typically clogs and I love these kilt-esque clogs Maguba sent over. On the Maguba site, you can mix and match your clog base with the different styles and colors on top (they even have different colors for clog bases). I picked the Chicago style with the natural high wooden base, and the black top. If you’re wooden shoe obsessed too, I highly you suggest checking their clogs out. I’m pretty sure you’ll love all the options too.

on me: top, vintage (vintage here, new there). jeans, levi’s (vintage here, new there). clogs, c/o maguba. indigo shawl, flea market.
