Yes, yes. Really feelin' this song by Solange and absolutely love the video. At first I concluded that it would sound better with someone else singing it (perhaps with a thicker, raspier voice?), but then "I decided" that it's her song and she's doing her thing, so oh well. She gets major props from me for the video alone...throwback themes plus historical content....not the same ol' b.s.
So anyway, here I am. I didn't stay out of the foggy haze too long. By that evening I was back to *blah*. These past 5 days have been comprised of me lounging around the house, kickin' it at my guy's place watching food network (which I can't get enough of), eating watermelon, surfing the internet, and basically just doing nothing. And it felt so, so good. I like doing nothing. I really do.
But then again I guess at certain intervals I did do something, cause I've got a new dress.
My fellow sewing enthusiast and internet buddy sewl sista#1 sent me several yards of that brown and white striped fabric a couple months ago, and I just love it. So bold and stretchy. My initial plan for it was something different (and I may still be able to carry that plan out since there's still plenty left), but in my current creative state, "I decided" to do something a bit more spontaneous. This was just something I made up as I went along. It turned out pretty nicely I suppose.
Also, notice the rare full body shot. I'm trying something a bit different. We'll see how long that lasts, though, since it means I can no longer take pictures with a head scarf on or plaits all over my head. I'm certainly not motivated to get "fixed up" for a full body shot photo after being in there sewing for so long. And since I've gotta be the designer, the seamstress, the model, the photographer, and the everything else, and since I'm usually worn out looking in the face when taking pictures, y'all are the frequent recipients of pictures with my head cut off. Trust. It's what's best for everyone, ha ha! :-)
