Project Alabama you can see more of these beautiful clothes here
The detailing is exquisite I love the 'rawness' of their clothes. I have a habit of cutting the hems off my skirts to create this feel, I also like the silhouette of the nipped in waist and the shape of the skirts.
I took this photo last year in our old bedroom, my feet look filthy but I promise you that's how dark I am, also we have no shoes allowed in the house and only bare feet in the bedrooms, so all photos at home will be sans shoes. I had intended to document more of my wardrobe mix, but ran out of light and time, its a bit like photographing your breakfast, I love the idea but I always run out of steam and appear to lack the discipline. I have posted this to encourage myself to do more. Now the wardrobe is upstairs next to a very well lit window it should help. However a small self conscious blip also stopped me, that of the increasing girth around the midriff. I have previously tried hard to keep it under control through exercise, but since giving up the car my gym regime has lapsed really badly. Exercise does not come easily, as I can only do short bursts before my foot goes completely numb (a very old injury of badly torn ligaments across the bridge of the foot) but I did try hard to go 3x a week. I have now joined a gym closer to home, I can walk there and back and then shower at home. I am going to try really hard, as the 'view from here' is getting fat. I did reflect that everyone in my family is overweight, not obese but non of us are slim, and we all struggle with our weight, so I am fighting the genes as well as the flab, oh lucky, lucky, me.
