Alexa, Play Kanye’s Workout Plan

That’s the first song that came to mind but I’m not following anything of Kanye’s, just so we’re clear. I have been super consistent with my current workout. (proud smile) I got a Peloton bike at the start of isolation and I’ve been on it more days than not each week. I kind of have…

Sagebrush Top Love

I had to run after and hop on this bandwagon!!! And I’m still stalking it. The Sagebrush Top by Friday Pattern Co is THAT good!! It reminds me of little tops I would wear as a kid but appropriate for the grown-up that I am, of course. I chose to make it in this cotton…

Summers are ALSO for……

…….making sure most of what I wear is beach appropriate. AND for wearing cut-off shorts with everything clearly!!!! To that point, the shorts I have on here are my favorite summer shorts. I wear the dickens out of them!! I got them a couple of years ago but paid way too much at an LF…

Summers are for……..

……wearing white and wearing seersucker. Wearing white seersucker is even better yes? I’ve had the pattern for this dress for a WHILE! I feel like I say that quite a bit but kudos to me for working thru my stash, no? I originally bought it because of Martha of Buried Diamond. I LOVE her bright…

Sunshine & Rain?

Girl, I don’t know! LOL. I’m running out of clever blog titles. But figured the bright yellow top playing in the hydrant kinda worked. This post won’t be too wordy. I made this top from in March when I first went into isolation. I had been looking for more time to sew and the 4+…

On Working with Mood Fabrics

Quick recap of my April, May, and June collaborations with Mood!! I love Mood Fabrics! I’ve loved Mood Fabrics for a long time. When I was taking Fashion Design courses at Parsons back in *ACHOO*, I was introduced to Mood and I would walk thru the aisles as if it were FAO Schwartz. Then, of…

HIGHEST Key Mood

aka Mood Collaboration #3 for June 2020. Friends……..FRIENDS!!!! Ya girl did THE MOST with this June Mood project!! But in my defense, I thought it would be an easier project than it was. And once I started, I had to commit to it. I’ve never been afraid of doing too much!! When in doubt, overdress,…

For the love of……..

JUMPSUITS!!!!! (And the like! ie….rompers) I, like so many others, endure the cons of jumpsuit-wearing for my love of their comfort and one-step dressing ability. I just know that going to the bathroom will be an ordeal but I gotta pay to play. My sewing friend and inspiration Marica of @OverdriveAfter30 on IG (www.maricamitchell.com) has…

NOT the boss of me!!!

My mom always says that I’ve been a rebel. “Depi’w te piti, ou toujou REBEL!” (Translation from Haitian Kreyol: Since you were little, you’ve always been a REBEL! You have to put HEAVY emphasis on “rebel”. Kreyol is as much about what words are emphasized as it is what is being said.) I don’t know…

Medium Key Mood

You ever want to be comfy cozy but still dressed? Like be able to move and not fuss with what you’re wearing but still make a statement? That’s medium-key to me. Low-key feel with high-key appeal meeting in the middle! (OH SHOOT! I just came up with that. I’m copyrighting that! Don’t steal that!) Joy,…

My Catch Up Game

I’m normally good for a couple of things: (1) starting multiple projects and finishing just a few, and (2) HOARDING sewing patterns and fabric. When I really started sewing more seriously and more frequently, I made a promise to myself that I would NOT start multiple projects thereby overwhelming myself to ergo not completing a…

Olivia Palermo Inspo Jacket

Olivia Palermo will forever be a style inspiration for me!!! What I wouldn’t give to do a Supermarket Sweep through her closet for 15mins. Do y’all remember that show?!?! Not sure what fascinated me so about dashing and grabbing through a supermarket but I would watch it all the time as a kid! While perusing…
