End of Summer Wedding Guest

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Hello! The end of summer also means the unofficial end of the wedding season, well at least on this side of the universe. No one really likes to have their wedding in the winter. Fall can be tolerated, I actually like fall weddings but winter? no thanks.
I made this dress about three or four years ago when I first started sewing. At the time, it was my first difficult sewing project. It has since been hanging in my closet until now because I just couldn't figure out where to wear it. I have thought about getting rid of it a few times, but glad I didn't. Now, with what I have learned from sewing, there are a few things I would do differently, but hey it fits so I wore it to a recent wedding.

Gone with the Wind

Monday, September 15, 2014


Hello... Remeber me? Even though it seems I have been gone with the wind because I have been MIA on the blog lately, no worries. My busy work schedule took over my life the last two weeks. Its that crucial time of the year where summer is coming to an end so you are left with wrapping up old projects while starting new ones. I think I have most of it covered so I should be back to blogging again mid week. Until then, enjoy this quick outfit. The dress is from sheinside and the necklace is an old one from aldo.

Comfort Sometimes

Thursday, September 4, 2014

When it comes to fashion, comfort is not always a priority. In order to look well dressed and cute, comfort has to be compromised sometimes. I prefer to wear heels over flats and this is not because heels are comfortable. Its just because I like how I walk and carry myself in them. In my previous post, (see below) I tried to wear heels with my maxi skirt but it just wasn't working so I wore flats. My sister was laughing at me the entire day because I was so uncomfortable and kept complaining about wearing flats all day. Now I don't mind doing errands or other activities in flats for a casual look, but whenever I dress up I always have to complete my outfit with heels.
With that said however I too seek comfort when it comes to my shoes sometimes. These zara sandals featured in this outfit are by far the most comfortable heels I own. I can wear them all day which is literally what I did when I wore this outfit a few weeks ago. I was in them for about 10 hours to hang out with a friend in Boston and I didn't even feel a pinch all day. Now if only all heels were made this way. We can only dream.

Head Wrap

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Happy Sunday and Happy labor day weekend. I had just the hair style in mind for church today but well I realized last night it wasn't going to work so I took to my sewing machine and made my self a maxi skirt, then used the extra fabric to tie it up. I have natural hair and I have had it since 2011. Not matter how may natural hair tutorials and products I buy, the texture of my hair just makes it impossible to style, which is why I am always in protective styles. It was acting really nice on Friday and Saturday then I stood in front of the mirror on Saturday night to style it and it just wasn't having it. Anyone has tips for super nappy kinks? helpppppp.
I hope you are enjoying the long weekend!

Transitioning Into Fall

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Happy New Week Fashionistas!! This is a busy work week so I am looking forward to the long labor day weekend. If memorial day weekend is the beginning of summer, labor day is the ending of summer. What this means is that fall is peaking through. I have began to mentally prepare myself by slowly transitioning into fall. I first begin with my clothing, my skin care, my diet, my exercising and so on. Spring and Fall are my two favorite seasons, so I am excited. Spring is pretty and fall is cozy.
This outfit is the first of many to transition into fall.
