Me Made May 2019

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, I'm joining in with Zoe's fantastic Me Made May initiative.

If it's so fantastic, you ask, why have I not taken part more often? Well, steady weight gain over the last few years has meant that a big part of my handmade wardrobe doesn't fit, leaving me with fewer options than is ideal. I also have a bit of a love/hate relationship with my me-mades as I often fall into the trap of making the latest trends and regretting it.  

However, I've decided to embrace Me Made May, not only because the FOMO is real, but also because I want to improve my relationship with my hand mades. 

My biggest reservation about it is that I might not feel like myself for a whole month, which I realise is an ironic thing to say about clothes made by me. Whether that ends up being the case or not, I'm hopeful that it will help me identify gaps (such as outerwear, bottoms, warm-weather clothes) and figure out my elusive sense of style. 

So without further ado...

I, Marie Koupparis, sign up as a participant of Me Made May 2019. I endeavour to wear at least one me-made item of clothing/accessory a day and will attempt to style repeats differently, during May 2019.

Are you taking part this year? If so, grab yourself a cute enamel pin badge in support of a good cause!

  1. It'll be so interesting to see how you feel about your wardrobe at the end of the month, and whether you find a way to feel like yourself in some of the garments you're currently unsure about. Plus we get to see your lovely makes!
