I Did A Thing, vol 40 (I think?)
Posted
It has been a year, I can’t keep track of time or details like old blog posts. I think we are quite far along the “Things Adina Has Made” path in any case, although my journey has stalled a bit in recent months. But let’s not dwell on the sad bits, let’s look at some...

What I Wore: July 2021, part 4
Cupcake Princess I know, I know … oops, I did it again. Bought another tulle skirt. You can’t blame me, I’m sure – look how fun this one is! I had actually been looking for it since last year, when one of my IG friends posted a photo of it on her feed. It finally […]

State of the Wardrobe: Summer 2021 Edition
Posted
It’s been a while since I’ve done any kind of wardrobe review or planning, but in fairness, there has been a lot of sh*t happening in my personal life lately. That being said, I feel like it’s time to do a serious closet edit — one, because my closet is getting dangerously...

Art Show Style, Take One Last weekend, I participated in my first art show/sale/market with a small group of fellow Edmonton artists and makers. It was a very positive experience and a big step for me because I have struggled a lot with the commercial side of my crafts. For various reasons, I don...

What I Wore: End of June 2021

The Long Wait I have been hunting this dress for over a year, no joke. Finding it in my size, for a price I was willing to pay, proved something of a journey. But … I triumphed! And it was worth the wait. My goodness, I love this dress so much. It’s not a fancy […]

French Summer I know this probably isn’t the first outfit that comes to mind when you think “French style”, but there is something about it that reminds me of Isabel Marant, which is of course a very “cool French girl” brand. I think it’s the short hemline on t...

FabFitFun Summer 2021 Box Review
Posted
I ended up waiting an extra long time for my FabFitFun summer box to arrive, but despite a hiccup or two, it was worth it. Here are my (as always, unsponsored and honest) reviews of the products I chose. This was part of a 3-item bundle that could be selected as one of the customizations […]

Bold Red There is something so fun about red lipstick, isn’t there? I mean, it jumps out on the t-shirt design, and it sure does brighten up the face too. I’m still masking up, of course, so my lipstick-wearing is pretty limited these days but I do like to put some on for photos becau...

Thrifted Things
Posted
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ve turned much of my thrifting focus to house wares and decor lately. Decorative objects are not everyone’s cup of tea — one person’s treasures can be another person’s clutter — but I love them. Being a maker has taught me t...

I Did A Thing: New Projects
Posted
For a good part of the spring, I felt no inspiration and no desire to create. I still made things because doing so was part of my routine, but felt rather ho-hum about the process and the product; then my routine fell apart and I stopped altogether. I wondered if I would ever feel the […]

I don’t propose to dwell too much on the events of the past month, as it would not make for especially light reading, so instead I will focus on – duh, what else – what I wore. There were days when getting dressed was pretty much the only achievement I could boast of, but it [&#...

Life Lately
Posted
I didn’t intend to drop off the face of the earth last month but life knocked me sideways and, well, it happened. My mother passed away at the end of April after a short and terrible battle with pancreatic cancer. It is still unfathomable to me that she was fine 3 months ago, then she [R...

Committing to Colour My “safety” colour is black (I think because it was drummed into me that black is classic, and always in style, etc.) so as much as I love colour, wearing it can feel a bit intimidating at times. Especially if I’m out in public. The upside of all this workin...

Ideas for Editing Your Closet
Posted
One of the questions I get asked a lot is “how big is your closet?” The unexciting answer is “not that big and not especially Instagram-worthy” but, I hasten to add, it does maximize the available space quite effectively. A common follow-up question is “how do you ke...

Double Leopard So, here’s the medium-long story: I thrifted this Anthro skirt a while ago, taking something of a gamble on the size which didn’t quite pan out. Rather than try to squeeze myself into it, I decided to sell it. Except it didn’t sell. I was tidying up my basement re...
