5 ways to rock leopard this Fall | a layered look!

I know it's been forever since I've blogged and probably longer since I've made and worn something leopard, but when life happens... you have to move! LOL. I'm keeping it short and sweet this week. I made a quick Lou box top by Sew DIY (anyone surprised?) and layered it with my thrifted blazer. My…

An Autumn Date Night Look!

It's a complete coincidence that yesterday I posted a matching separates look...and that here I am again, doing the same thing! Ha! I originally made this outfit for a date night for my trip to Jackson, Mississippi to see my boyfriend and the weather switched up completely when I landed so I never got to…

5 Ways to rock leopard this Fall | Matching separates

Back in September I did an IG taker for D&H Fabrics. Tammy, the owner, gifted me  beautiful leopard print that a girl like me just couldn't resist! I wanted to maximize this fabric to the fullest and did not want to make a dress. So instead, I made a "faux dress" if you will... :)…

A coffee run in my Lou box top

My (Es)cape in Asheville | Pattern review: McCall’s 6209

Whew! What a time I had with this project. The front cover of the pattern actually says that it takes one hour. It actually took me about 5 hours because everything that could go wrong, actually went wrong. Needles. Broken. Thread. Popped. Bobbin. Jammed. You name it, it happened. Over and over and over again!…

Channeling my style icon: Jackie Kennedy-Onasis

Happy Election Day! Even though there is no gift exchange, this is probably one of my favorite American holidays. I believe so much in democracy and civic duty that I love waking up and heading to the polls to vote! This election is probably one of the most important of my lifetime, and so in…
