Buttons and Birdcages is Moving!

Hey Everyone!

I have some exciting (and a little sad) news..

Thank you all for an amazing 6 months of blogging here on wordpress.com. I still have access to my reader so I will be able to keep up with all your new posts! I hope we will all still be able to keep in touch 🙂

Have an amazing weekend!





Ever have that perfect project idea in mind, find the perfect fabric, and then have the results come out not so perfect? That is definitely what happened with this skirt-to-pinafore refashion I attempted a couple of weeks ago. I swear I thought this looked better than it does in the pictures. Looking back, it’s safe to say this is not my finest work..



The straps were too long and the skirt didn’t fit the way I imagined it in my head. I hate the way I styled it (what’s with the shoes – looking at it gives me flashbacks to middle school *shudder* middle school).



I almost didn’t post these at all, but then I started thinking about how being honest on my blog.

I am not perfect, my blog is not perfect, and life is not perfect.

Part of the reason I started Buttons and Birdcages is to have something to look back on one day. I have found that since I’ve started blogging, I do (somewhat) obsess over the photos I post – what I’m wearing, how my hair looks. In a world where we are expected to appear flawless, it’s difficult not to get caught up in that.

But imperfection is a part of life, and thus, will be a part of this blog.
