New Orleans: Part Un

Helleaux! I recently went on a trip to New Orleans (one of my favorite cities) and of course I made my wardrobe. Well, 90% of my clothes. More on that later. I turned 30 and I wanted nothing more than to celebrate in New Orleans with my loved ones, so that includes my parents and…

Road Trippin’: The London Bookbag

So making a bookbag has been on my bucket list for quite some time! As a bag designer on Etsy I even get requests from folks asking if I make bookbags. And my answer has always been "Sadly, no." There was no opportunity like the present to really try my hand at making a bookbag…

Crazy for Zadie! A pattern review on the Zadie Jumpsuit by Paper Theory

I have never met a jumpsuit I didn't love and Zadie by Paper Theory is no different! It burst onto Instagram with a quickness and for once in my existence I was not late to the party. Zadie is definitely everything and more! It's flattering, forgiving and the design and wear ease are perfect! But…

My new favorite Summer dress: My ogden cami hack!

Happy Hump Day! It's the first week of June - and the hot weather has been showing out! I was totally prepared for this. I mean, I bought the Ogden Cami pattern from True Bias and I've already used the pattern twice and my brain is filled with tons more ideas and hacks. If you…

My Weekend Look: A Head-To-Toe Me Make!

TGIF! Has anyone else begun shutting down their work? It's 5 o'clock somewhere! I know most of you are used to seeing me in girly looks, frilly dresses and pink overalls but, if I'm headed for a weekend trip or a quick run to the fabric store, I love a great, simple dress...preferably black. I…

The perfect combination: How to mix & match prints

Today it's all about prints -and how to mix them! I'm wearing head-to-toe me makes and I took a gamble and said to myself, "Stripes and dots? Yeah, this will go great!" It was just something in my mind that worked out well IRL. I'm wearing a full skirt made with the Arabella skirt from…

Dear Mrs. Kennedy: A Nod to an American Fashion Icon

It's no secret that I love classic styles. And of course, the godmother of classic American style is Jackie Kennedy. If you've been following my blog or Instagram for sometime then you know that I love Jackie Kennedy. When I was a little girl my mom took me to an exhibit to see her clothes…

My little red dress: Orchid Midi pattern review

I don't own any red dresses! I know, shameful! So when I saw this pattern, all I could see was "red"...but in a good way. I wanted a nice Spring red. So I opted for a tomato red from Minerva Crafts. And as a side note, my package came super quick and shipping costs were…

Granny Chic: My Up-cycled Goodwill Dress

I did it! I completed my first up-cycle. And I let me just say, I need to do these more often! It was fun, quick and it was almost like a little brain exercise because you have to deconstruct and rebuild. Plus, my dress was only $6, so let's just say I saved a ton…

Hey Sole Sister: Espadrille Kit Pattern Review

I did it! I made my own shoes! I can't tell you how much I am really proud of myself for completing the project. A year ago -heck, several years ago a project like this would've really intimidated me, but it came together very naturally. If you've been following me on Instagram then you know…
