I spy with my little eye...

ANOTHER KNOCK-OFF!!! I promised myself to get off my knock-off binge for a while and dream up some doo-dads on my own but damnit...I just cant help it!

My absolute favorite coat designer is Mackage. I bought one 2 years ago and to this day I swear it is one of the smartest fashion splurges I've ever made. Yes, they are on the expensive side, but Lord knows if I had the cash, I'd have each year's collection expressed to my closet. This is the one I'm currently stalking.....

Her name is Tessy....Isn't she a beaut!!!

I never finished my BWOF AKA coat past the muslin stage. It became a UFO because there was something with the style that didn't fit me...I supposed it was the collar and the coat length that didn't work although it fit me lovely. I'm never the one to complete a project for the sake of completing it. That's when joy becomes drudgery. I'm glad I didn't because it is a perfect start to make a Tessy of my own. Clock starts now..I need to have this done before classes start Jan 26!!

Sidebar: I don't have a camera (dropped it last week)...I'm using a computer as old as I am to blog (never fixed my laptop)...so I'm a little technically disadvantaged right now. I'll have to be resourceful so I am apologizing in advance for the crappy cell phone pictures I will probably be taking for a while :-)
