Me Made June Wrap-Up

So we have come to the end of another me-made month. To my surprise, I do not have enough me-made summer clothes to make it through the whole month without repeats. This is totally OK with me, since I am often horrified at the sheer volume of clothes I own. Now I feel that maybe there’s not a HOLE in my wardrobe, but summer clothes may represent a bit of an indentation.

Again, I learned quite a bit from looking at the daily photos. It’s actually a useful exercise to take photos of one’s clothes to see if they really look the way they do in one’s head or in the mirror.

So here we have it. 31 pictures of me.

    Lovely!!!!!! I have to agree with Elizabeth, I do love the ruffle vest. I also like the red and white/cream drape knit dress.
