My new yellow Spring trousers!

Happy Tuesday y'all! Can I share just how much my new trousers make me happy? Like, how just staring at them make me smile? I used Mimi G X Simplicity pattern 9114, which is like a (in my opinion) vintage cut pants pattern. They have 4 pleats at the front and two in the back…

Pattern review: McCall 7812

Hey everyone! I know it's been a few weeks since the last time I wrote on my blog. If we're being honest, I've been getting really wrapped up into creating TikTok videos and it's really been occupying time. Shameful, yes. I know. But if you're on TikTok then give me a follow at @ravenmaureen_! Anyway,…

My new wool coat!

I know it seems like lately all I’ve been making is outerwear. And that’s somewhat true. But I’ve been sitting on so much outerwear fabric that I’m trying to burn through it! Plus, I live in Jackson now, so once March hits, it’s basically Summer while the rest of the country is still enjoying cooler…

My new LEOPARD fur coat + a pattern review!

I know y’all didn’t think that I would totally abandon my loyalty to leopard for blush tones?! That would be a big fat “No!” Yes it’s a fact that I love pink. But more than pink, I still love leopard. I bought my fur from large fabric chain months ago during the Fall (now sold…

The look for less! My new bias skirt and turtleneck!

Hey y'all! If you've been following me for some time then you know that Meghan Markle has been my fashion inspo on more than one occasion. I really love her style! This time, I took this look and turned it in my own. A few years ago she wore a monochromatic brown head-to-toe outfit. It…

DIY Home: How to make a chair slipcover!

Happy New Year! ICYMI I moved to Jackson, MS, got engaged and I've been in "nesting mode" ever since. One of the projects I made over the holidays was this DIY slipcover. See, my fiancée had a really awful colored arm chair. It was like....a chenille seafoam green (but very comfortable) arm chair. Bottom line,…

Another MAJOR life update: I’m engaged!

Well this is a Christmas that I will NEVER FORGET! On Christmas Eve, Joe proposed to me in front of our parents, plus family and friends via Zoom. The holidays looked different but Joe spared no resource to make this moment special. Check out how it went down, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFBg0ETI9TM&feature=youtu.be
