Dust on navy, hardy as brogues


Finally, something recent. If I remember correctly, these pictures were taken this week – yes, I honestly can’t recall exactly when I wore this outfit.


In any case, my hair is shorter now after a visit to my stylist (so I suppose before Wednesday).

Sorry for the paunch, which I still can't hide. But I'm happy I am slowly filling out this breath-shy shirt. More shirt ideas here.


I haven’t really told anyone, but these brogues are actually for women (the shoe model is called “Elizabeth”, Made in England). Don’t really care. Once I wore them (the detachable triple-tongues detached here), I instantly fell in love. Patiently waited a few months till they were sold at a significant discount. My toes and heels still smart when I walk in them over my usual distance. Hopefully, they’ll relent soon, just as my other pairs of Dr Martens.


Finally finished these bracelets this week as well. They were commissioned by my cousin. I’ve always wanted to create a black monochromatic piece, but thought to postpone it till after summer. As with many of my other designs for Bosquejo, demand trumps planning. 

Named the black bracelet Erebor, an obvious reference. And also because I was re-watching The Hobbit this week.


Again, it’s Saturday as I write this. And the busy week is covered in dust. Or haze.


Sometimes I forget to mind the dirt.


March on, remaining days of March!


Hopefully, I’ll finish all the pieces I intend to sell this summer. For those interested, the stones you see are onyx, smoky quartz, hematite, and yes, lava.

Lacey and laced up, but definitely not lazy enough to let this post drag on.
