Ladies First

Ladies First

What a crazy awesome week!  So much has been happening here that I am overwhelmed with all things creative and on a complete natural high!

Just to update you where I left off last week. I was up to only having Day 16 – Wardrobe and Day 19 – Lilli May’s Room to complete in the 20 Days to Organise & Clean Your Home Challenge. With day 20 being to cook something yummy!

Day 16  – Wardrobe

This little space was a bit of a disaster zone!

It was a miss mash of clothes and gotten to the point where it was hard to find anything..which is not how I normally have my wardrobe set up.

First thing I did, as usual, is remove everything and then sort the clothes into piles

1 To go back in the wardrobe

2 For our upcoming garage sale

3 To go into storage – out of season clothes

At this time, it is still really cold here so I can’t pack all my winter clothes away and get all my summer ones out..I have to have just a few left in the wardrobe to cover those colder days..like today, which saw snow falling less than 2 hours from our home!

One of the things I discovered that needed to be moved out of my cupboard was my box of denim jeans. Anyone who knows me, would notice that I am a bit of a bohemian dresser, think maxi skirts, long and flowy pants, maxi dresses and vests and scarves. This includes in winter..where I just add leggings under the skirts for warmth.

I am NOT a jeans girl. Never have been. Never will be. I see a lot of my friends live in jeans though so over the years I have dabble in trying to wear them..so much so here is my denim jean collection:

I am currently still holding onto 17 pairs of jeans! I wear a grand total of ONE of these pairs and that ONE pair is only worn on an irregular basis. I KID YOU NOT!! I have tried to find the ‘perfect pair of jeans’ that I am happy with my butt, thighs, tummy and knees in and I just can’t seem to find one that I am happy with.  I have obviously been happy on at least 17 occasions…well happy enough to walk out of the change room to the counter and buy the jeans I have just put on. Then basically all of these pairs have only been endured for one outing before I decide “nup, don’t really like the fit/the way my butt or thighs or profile or knees or legs or whatever looks/feels in these so I am never wearing them again!” Vowing also just to stick to my skirts and be done with it….until my next moment of weakness where I delude myself into thinking that can find a pair of jeans that my butt and I agree with. The argument continues.

So with the box gone and all the other mess, I was able to satisfy my OCD and re-sort my clothes into colour sets…all the white items together, all the black items together, all the blue items together etc……and the jackets all together to the right of the top rail. Ahhhhhh that’s better. 🙂

With that done all that was left was to do Lilli May’s room and cook something yummy. I have made, amongst other things, Lemon Butter and my Absolutely Delish Spring Rolls and I have the photos so all I need to do is find the time to type it all up so that I can share with you…hopefully sometime in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out.

The only task outstanding is to do Lilli May’s room, now we tidy this up at the end of everyday, but I actually want to rearrange it so that is going to have to wait. The reason I haven’t made time to do it yet is because not only have I been busy working on customer orders at Lilli May designs,  I have also been busy launching my new range of handmade items –  LADY STYLES – my handmade clothes for the ladies which includes items that are my own design/pattern.

Classic styling.

Superior comfort.

Uniquely yours.

My range at the moment is very bohemian (wow that’s a surprise isn’t it?!) with skirts, pants, tops, aprons, shower caps and vest with more styles to come! If there is something that you want but done see then please email me on lillimaydesigns@gmail.com and I am sure I will be able to assist you.

All items can be made in a range of vintage and modern fabrics. All items can be CUSTOM MADE TO FIT YOU no matter what the size. 🙂 Details of the collection can be found here. WHAT A GREAT UNIQUE GIFT IDEA FOR CHRISTMAS FOR THAT SPECIAL LADY IN YOUR LIFE – be she your mum, aunt, sister, friend, wife or partner!

With my new range I decided to go with the saying LADIES FIRST, and took the time to launch it first before doing Lilli May’s room…that will need to wait a little longer until it is rearranged.

Keep smiling!
