It's the Bluest Blue...

Shirt: Thrifted / Scarf: won in a giveaway here / Skirt: Made by me / Thigh-highs: Forever 21 / Boots: Amazon

Whoo! It sort of feels like I dropped off the face of the blogging earth...over a week between postings! I feel like such a bad blogger...but oh well. I don't know if I've said anything about it before, but when I'm having spurts of creativity, all of my energy gets channeled into the creative process instead of into blogging. I had been in a horrible creative funk for so long, and just this week, I randomly decided to start being productive--I started a bunch of new art pieces (which I hope to share with you soon!), and I also started knitting a sweater for the cool days that are fast approaching (it's TARDIS blue, by the way...of course).

Anyway! Now that I've explained my absence...

Last month, I won Katysue's lovely giveaway for this Doctor Who themed scarf! I love the color, the material...oh, and the fact that it has a wee TARDIS on it. Once I received it, I lost no time in putting together a wonderfully geeky outfit...lots of different shades of blue, which I love. The weather was cool, so I pulled out my cozy socks and boots, which were perfect for a leisurely stroll by the water with my aunt and sisters.

This week has been full of Doctor Who, actually...I found out that a girl at church is also a big fan of the show, and we had a bit of a "moment" on Sunday--
Her: So we were talking about time today in class, and I was thinking-
Me: It's just a great big ball of wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff, right?
Her: Exactly!
And my friend (who had never seen the show) looked at me after that and said, "I have NO idea what just happened."
That night, I introduced her to the Doctor--we watched "Blink," and then the Titanic episode, while I gushed about the amazingness of the Tenth Doctor's hair, and the greatness of the name Alonzo. It was a truly epic night.

I should really probably stop my geeky ramblings now before I bore you all to death! I hope you're all having a lovely week so far! Tomorrow I'm trying something I've never attempted before--ice skating. I'm hoping to return alive!


  1. !!LOVE THIS OUTFIT!! Great job on the skirt! I'm always stitching things up, but I've only had the guts to wear them once-I'm always been a little leery of wearing them, afraid them coming un-stitched (which they have before...)
    So, I've heard quite a few people talking about the "Doctor Who" can you give me any insight as to content? (sexual content, language etc?)

    Oh, by the way-I only have 9 fingers now...:(
    HA!HA!HA! Just joking! The pineapple went fine! I'm afraid of knives too though, but usually I can just keep my fingers back and I'm fine.

    My mission in life now is converting friends and family to DW...successfully converted my sister and younger brother. Now to find some unsuspecting friends...hehe.

  5. Um..I LOVE this outfit!!!! Absolutely adore the scarf - I want it! :D

    Your week is about to get more DW awesomeness added. I'll be {hopefully} announcing the blog party I mentioned on my blog tomorrow, and it's definitely DW related;D

    Ooh, ice skating is fun! I've only gone a few times, but I enjoyed it. Have fun!

    Ditto what Ally said about her mission in life. lol.

  6. That outfit is cute,especially the scarf:)

  7. Cute!

    Thanks for your sweet comment. I'm sorry about your grandma,I know its tough.

  8. Ooh I love your outfit! Especially the scarf. :) The skirt is really cute too, I love how you did that contrasting hand stitching at the bottom, very artsy!

  9. I REALLY like this outfit! I love blue, and I especially like the dark, blue! And your boots, I love your boots. I like all boots, but yours look really cool.

    Thank you for your comment 8-) Yes, the short is out in Kindle form. Smashwords is very nice, it put it out in all the ebook forms out there, I think. I don't know how many are out there, but it at least put it in Nook and Kindle. Apps can be so nice! I was able to get a Kindle app for my Ipod.


  10. Hi Vicki,
    Its been long I haven't visited your page..sorry but you know where I am busy these days!
    well I really love your posts, the headband tutorial is just lovely! and this post is so nice..I always adore are so pretty as usual :)
    stay blessed my friend..:)

  11. If your skirts tend to be to big than try elastic skirts, not only do they fit comfortably, but they also can be adjusted after you finish sewing them!

  12. I have that trouble, not knowing what day it is. I don't usually mind, till I have to write a check or something and I stand there staring at the date line going..."I SHOULD know what today is.."

    I am glad you are looking forward to everything, and especially glad you liked the short story 8-) That made my day, which I kind of needed 8-D


  13. LOVE your scarf!! I havve been watching Docto Who via netflix and have to say I love it!

    All the blues in this outfit is so cute! I really love your tights as well. I am hoping for some new ones in my stocking. :)
