toulouse! don't stare!


WOULDJA LOOK AT THIS HOTNESS THAT ARRIVED IN THE MAIL. 

i see bathing suits in my future.

in honor of debi's sew grateful week, i received this uber cool surprise package from lisette!  THANKS GIRL! how wonderful!  this makes two sew gratefuls in a row that were sponsored by your hand.  (oddly enough, i pulled my fashion blogger face last time around.)

speaking of benefactors, is our debi not a love enabler, or what? it's been so nice to see all the gratefulness going round the blogs this week.  i have a special sew-grateful-with-a-twist post of my own due tomorrow. i still haven't figured out the with-a-twist part of it, which is for you... but i will.  probably tonight over sazeracs with-a-lemon-twist.

  1. YES. You need some amazing spandex and I can totally see you rocking out a zebra/tiger/leopard one with a bow. An epic bow even. That lovely Lisette - this is such a fab gift!

  8. I can't wait to see what you sew up year. You're so talented girl.

    I just bought the most amazing dress on eBay and wanted to personally share my joy with you. I knew you'd appreciate this vintage print. Picture on my blog. :)

    1. well, i wore a flesh pink tone stuffed bow on my ass for our wedding day, and he wisely did not say a thing (THOUGH I WISH SOMEONE HAD)

      nice catch of the pink trim. ain't it sweet??

  10. ooh bathers:) you should make neon one's and really stand out at the beach haha ;)

    ReplyDelete
  11. The salmony trim in the background is very intriguing, too...
    And would you look at that, Toulouse even put on his glasses. Phew!
    Good luck with your bathing suit sewing!

  12. Everything can be solved with sazeracs with-a-lemon-twist. Everything!

  13. I'm sending love right back at ya' Oona!! You've participated in both of the previous Sew Grateful weeks....always bringing your game face!! I just love it!!!

  14. I've been thinking of making myself a new one-piece as well. I feel like 2-piece suits are better for beaches, since it's easier to remove sand from the lady parts. But a one-piece with a snap crotch... well, that could be just the thing!

    I wonder how that low back would work with boob support. Probably not too well? Sounds like fun.

      i think i luckily won't have any issue with my boobage!
