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…

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,…

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,…

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…

Lots of cool!

In my new culottes! How long can these corny titles last? 🤷🏾‍♀️ But I’m obviously going to keep at it until I can’t no more! To the culottes!!!!!! I had these Winslow Culottes by Helen’s Closet on my mile long To Make list for a while but when I saw Jolene’s version, I had to…

I want to be seen…..GREEN!!!

Any time I can reference The Wiz, I just know it’ll be a good day!!! About a month ago, (actually, it’s a month now to the day!!!! Whoa!!) one of my favorite sewing bloggers, Tabitha Sewer, posted a gorgeous green sequins tiered skirt she’d just made. GASP, I exclaimed!!! I’m going to make that! I…

Striped Knit Dress

In my mind, this was going to be a more casual sweater dress a la Mimi G. Hers is from Forever 21 but she provided details on how to DIY it using her Annie sweater pattern. I went to Mood Fabrics looking for a similar style sweater knit but had no such luck. The closest…
