New Books: "Drape Drape" & "Drape Drape 2"

This post is so late...

Like everyone else who hates going shopping during Black Friday sales (but doesn't like missing out on good deals), I hit up BarnesandNoble.com to see what I could find. (Don't judge!) Luckily I spotted soft cover versions of Japanese draping books that I've been stalking. The hardcover editions are $24.95 each, but softcovers are under $20 and at the time I bought them for even less. *happy dance*. Both books are by Hisako Sato.


I absolutely love all things drapey. Lightweight, drapey knits appeal to me mainly for the ease of fit. Don't get me wrong - I rock tight jeans and leggings all the time, but a slouchy tee or relaxed cardigan is my go-to any day of the week. Anywho, below are some of the styles you can make in Drape Drape 2.


 
As soon as I get the rest of these boxes unpacked, I'll be attacking these patterns (full sized paper patterns are included in the back of the books). Oh...and I just found out Drape Drape 3 is available for purchase also.

No Laptop :(

So my precious MacBook Pro randomly shut off while I was in the middle of a season 1 marathon of Scandal on Netflix. (Yes, I caught onto the show late, hence, my self induced marathon lol.) I never realized how much I rely on my laptop in the small amount of time I actually am home after work. It's been 5 days now and it's been such a struggle! Last I checked, it was in its way to Apple repair center in LA. Hopefully the logic oats won't need to be replaced. *fingers crossed*

By the way, there are a lot of websites that still don't have mobile layout. They need to get it together! Lol.

Happy New Year!!



A new year has come again (I mean, its not like that's not going to change LOL). May you have a blessed year ahead of you filled with love, happiness and healthy.

I celebrated by going to Times Square to watch the ball drop. INSANITY!! But I had fun. Check out some of the pics I took below. Theres also a video that I cant post since I'm typing from my phone :(.

What did you do to ring in the new year?

Jenny McCarthy. She's looked amazing!




ETA: here's the ball-drop countdown :).
