Thank you Burdastyle!

There was a pleasant surprise today in the mail. Burdastyle sent me their very first project book, which consists of Burdastyle members creations. All the creations are based on their pattern.

Here is mine! My tara pattern variation. I simply lengthen the pattern, and took off the sleeves (although I love its fairly like sleeves), and replaced them with straps.
Lastly, today's outfit. I felt pretty lazy today, it's Monday. I woke up late (7:30), and just have to be comfortable to start the week.
Outfit detail: top, gift from my friend, khaki cargo pants, thrifted in Philly 3 years ago for $3, necklace, thrifted, about $1, sandals, bandolino.

Ugh, why is Japanese yen so expensive right when I come home? I had to exchange some dollars to yen today, and a dollar is only worth 87 yen. When I went to school in the States, and had to pay tuition, a dollar was like 130 yen. I am getting screwed...
