30 for 30 Winter, day 13. It’s almost time for my giveaway

19 Feb

One lucky winner will get an identical scarf personally knitted by me

A complete remix delight

Zipper surprise!

It’s all about the textures

I’d better start knitting because one more follower and I will be holding my first ever giveaway. I promised that when I hit fifty followers I would knit an identical infinity scarf as the one shown, which I can’t seem to stop wearing these days. Thank the ladies at the store who talked me into believe I needed three spools of yarn to knit one scarf. I didn’t even use up one spool completely. Yes, I have a lot of this yarn left over.

I meant to wear this lace dress with a sweater which had short sleeves but I found that winter is once again upon us in the Bay Area and it was too cold. Like the quick-change artist that I can be at times in the morning, I pulled on this shimmery coffee t-shirt underneath for what appeared to be a total disaster. Rescue came in the shape of a priority swap; what if the shirt was over the dress? And what if I added a mustard yellow belt? What if this outfit ended up totally rocking?

This is officially one of my favorite unexpected outfits. I can’t wait for the remix to be over so that I may wear it again and again and (gasp!) again!

Deets: Lace dress/Jeremy’s, rust tights/We Love Colors, shimmery coffee t-shirt/Michael Starts, mustard belt/Anthropologie, vegan brown suede boots/Munro, infinity scarf/yours truly.

    Loving this outfit! I never would have thought to pair a woven belt (yours is gorgeous!) with a lace skirt, but it really works. And the colored tights are such a great touch!

    P.S I’m your newest follower!

    Very, very cute. I love the exposed zipper on that lace skirt and think you’ve put it all together very nicely. I especially like how the mustard belt picks up the lighter tones in the scarf. Very nice.

    Hey Fabienne,

    You have outdone yourself with this outfit, so pretty. Wow you knitted that scarf, very talented. The color of the yarn in the scarf is so vibrant and the zipper on the back of that lace skirt is such a designer touch. This outfit is one of my favs of yours.

    What a yummy, textured orange! I wish orange looked better on me. I love how you’ve echoed it with the rich orange tights, and contrasted the bold c olor with the deep brown and bright white skirt. Yes, do wear the ensemble again and again!

    The nurse did say, though, that if my hair loss doesn’t slow down within a few months, I should make an appointment to have my blood analyzed.
    This can help you shed pounds and also keep it under check later.
    It can also help reduce skin aging and protect the skin against the damage caused
    from stresses and toxins.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really one thing which I feel I would never understand.

    It kind of feels too complex and extremely large
    for me. I am taking a look forward on your next publish, I’ll try to

    Schöner Post. Ebenso hammer, wie Computerspiele auch. So verschrieen zocken auch sei,
    so ist wissenschaftlich erwiesen worden, dass spielen, ein dem Alter des Gamers angemessenes Game vorausgesetzt, förderlich
    für das Reaktionsvermögen sein kann. Beim Zocken lernt der
    Gamer in angenehmer Umgebung in erhöhter Frequenz zu Entscheiden und zwischen wichtig
    und unwichtig zu unterscheiden. Die meisten Computerspiele vermitteln überdies
    auch noch Basiswissen über Ressourcenmanagement
    und fördern die kognitiven Fähigkeiten des
    Spielenden. Sogar die verpönten Multiplayer Games können doch in vielen Fällen den an den Haaren herbeigezogenen Effekt der Abwendung von der Realität} aufhalten. Der Gamer mag wohl auch vielen Freaks begegnen, allerdings findet man häufig just in seinem Favoriten Gleichgesinnte.

    Alles in allem: das Zocken von Games ist der Hammer! Gaming ist Kunst.
