striped I was at H&M with a friend this weekend when I saw this dress in clearance. Immediately, I knew exactly how I would style it and that is what I did the very next day. I love "holiday dressing" and this is my first of many.

progress We learn and grow with time and practice. My sewing has really come a long way. I made this dress a few years ago and looking at it now I realize how far I have come. This past Sunday, I was running late to a baptism and it was the first thing that jumped at me in my closet so I wore it. As soon as I got in the car I realize maybe  I shouldn't have worn it since it really doesn't look well made. I contemplated posting this look since I already got rid of the dress but I went ahead and posted it anyway because sometimes it is important to remind ourselves where we started and how far we have come.

Le Diner En Blanc

diner en blanc Happy Monday!!! Its been a while I think. Just incase you don't keep up with me on instagram, I got engaged about a week ago. My fiancé and sister planned the best proposal ever. So as you can imagine, I was on cloud nine the entire week and just as I was coming back to planet earth, I had a major event to attend. I say major because le diner en blanc has always been an event I want to attend. So after a year on the waitlist, I was finally excited to attend.

Summer Wedding Guest

Thursday, September 3, 2015

wedding guest Hello..Now that summer is almost over, I am getting a bit sad. Buttttttt October is my birthday month so I am looking forward to fall. This past weekend I attended my college roommate's wedding. It was by far the most elegant and simple wedding I have attended. Being that I am African, African wedding can be too over the top. So I am used to those kind of weddings. She is not African so naturally it was beautiful and straight to the point.
When thinking of what to wear to the wedding, I began making a royal blue dress but thought it was too much for the ocassion so at the very last minute, I wore this dress I made earlier this year.
