Hello, my name is Lexy. Seriously. I was deeply pondering about my blog (not really) and I realized, "WOW. You guys don't even know my name." So, yeah. Now you do. It's Lexy. And -
We're sorry, but we interrupt this post for some breaking news. Lexy/ Girl With the Bow Tie now has Twitter.
WHAT? Oh yeah. I do! I just got twitter. I'm such a dork with 1 follower, so please follow me @ twitter.com/girlwithebowtie. - Yeah, the stupid URL only allows me to have a certain number of letters, so if you didn't realize, with + the = withe. Comment and leave links to your twitters and I'll be happy to follow you as well! :)
Pretty simply outfit for a day shopping in Toronto. Okay, let me give you guys a word of advice. If you ever go to Toronto to shop you must go to the Kensington market. A street full of vintage/ thrift/ indie designer stores must be amazing. And it is! Seriously.

As promised, I have a posting of the finished pink skirt. Ta-da!

I'm very happy to have finished this skirt and therefore, jumping shots were necessary. Plus, I just like jumping...
It's a polka-dotted explosion!
Also wearing the homemade hair clip, posted a few weeks back...
(hair clip - home made)
I had a lot of random scraps from the hem of the skirt, so I decided to make a t-shirt out of it...
(Jeans - UB, Shirt - homemade)
How to make it: 1. Cut out flower shapes from fabric/ scraps in various sizes. 2. Strategically place them on a plain white tee-shirt. 3. Once happy with the layout, pin the pieces down. 4. Try not to poke the needles through your eyes out of frusturation when hand-sewing the hundreds of flowers down for hours. 5. When you're finally done, you have permission to run around your house and shout, at full volume, "I DID IT." 6. Then, you can cut your t-shirt (collar, sleeves, hem) to a desirable cut.
At first, this was a fun project. However, after I started handsewing.. it all changed. Handsewing each individual flower. EACH FLOWER.
Anyways, I'm satisfied with the outcome. I'll be posting a legit DIY-instructions (with pictures and other fun things... well, just pictures. But those are fun!) for how to make those puffy skirts very soon. So keep an eye out for that!
So, don't forget to follow me on twitter. And don't forget to leave your twitter in the URL so I can follow you as well... Oh yeah, and what do you guys think of the new header? It turned out a bit bigger than I had wanted, but oh well... I feel like I should clarify some things about it. 1) I'm supposed to be pretending how to fly (it's what I do!), but I ran out of room. So I'm just holding a bird. 2) My heart-shaped glasses are broken. It's based on a true story. Where my heart-shaped glasses are broken. Anyone know where I can buy new ones?
