Tiers & gathers: my new lemon print Summer dress!

Happy Sunday! I have been super busy trying to make sure that I have all the outfits for my upcoming trip (more on that later) that I’ve been a bit M.I.A lately. Well, for my standards of content.... I have felt somewhat absent. But can we talk about my lemon print dress and how much…

The look for less! My vintage inspired halter dress!

Happy Tuesday! On Sunday I posed the question to my followers on Instagram...who influences your style? I got so many various answers. A lot of grandmas, moms and aunties were mentioned. And I too, count myself in that group. I know I’m known mostly for 60s and 70s flare but that had to come from…

My pink Summer dress! A Sorbetto dress hack!

So I recently co-hosted a giveaway with @thecornyrainbow on Instagram to celebrate reaching 4K followers. Any milestone always requires a new 'fit. Right?

Summer coordinates! Mixing prints again!

TGIF everyone! Ok, so you want the truth? This outfit was supposed to come with me with to New Orleans, but it never made it in the suitcase.  When we took these photos I was not completely satisfied with the fit of the shorts so I wanted to alter them again. Welp, we all know…

New Orleans: Part Deux

Brunch, anyone? I feel like that's an important part of any vacation, especially in a place where most activities involve trying new or interesting cuisine. For the day, I wore my favorite Summer pattern, an ogden cami hack. Once again, I extended the bodice, but this time to the floor to make a maxi dress.…

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…
