Crochet cuteness!

Posted on

I’ve recently been looking through my vintage stash in preparation for my up coming Pop Up Shop, and I have been having a slight problem. I seem to be finding a lot of things I want to keep for myself lol. So while I was searching through my goodies I found this great little crochet cardi. I love it! And I think at one point I actually had gotten it for myself and never worn it so it got transferred to my storage. Well now it has been reintroduced to the world and is ready for the summer heat 🙂 hopefully!

Wearing a vintage crochet cardigan, vintage tooled leather belt, vintage leather flats and a great maxi dress that I found at winners for $20. Unfortunately I don’t think its going to fit for very much longer 😦

Hello all,

Sorry about all the mirror shots lately. I’m currently in search for a new camera and until I find one my camera phone is my camera so please bare with me 🙂

Anyways…So over the past few months and a growing belly I have on the search for something to wear that doesnt make me look like a balloon and marshmallow. As funny as it sounds it is actually quite the feat to find fashionable and affordable maternity wear. So with that being said I have decided to make some of my own clothing. Which is what I did on Saturday night 🙂

On Saturday I was quite frustrated with my closet so I decided to whip something up on my own. I chose to make a maxi dress with some fabric I purchased a while back. I picked out one of my favorite maxi dresses and I also chose a top that I liked. I combined the styles and came up with my own maxi dress. I am actually pretty happy with the final result.

Baby bump shot! 🙂

I took the tie detail from the top that I liked and I added a little extra detail by using a contrast color so the tie is more noticeable.

I paired the dress with a vintage cardigan and a vintage tooled leather belt.

I’m quite happy with how the dress turned out. Cant wait to create something else 🙂

Hints of Gold

Hey all
Yesterday I realized that fall is on its way and the days are getting shorter. 😦 I have mixed feelings about these facts. On one side I’m happy as I love fall and putting together fall outfits. On the other side I can’t help but say “Where the hell did summer go?” I guess planning a wedding and getting married really makes time fly.
So with my realization I decided to wear one of my vintage maxi dresses. I love this dress as I feel like it can pass as summer or fall. It has beautiful fall like colors but it also has gold embroidery throughout the whole dress as well as spaghetti straps. Its beautiful. I paired this dress some vintage pearls, and my vintage Wrangler jacket and a cute little pair of flats.

Maxi In May

Posted on

Hey all
Today was a bright and sunny Tuesday. It was also hot and humid. So today I decided to wear something light and flowy. I chose a Alyn Paige New York dress that I found a few years ago at a local Value Village. I love the way the dress flows when I’m walking: D. I paired it with my Prada flats.

Another upside to the weather today, is that I woke up this morning with some lovely waves in my bangs. I guess I have the humidity to thank for that: D
I hope I wake up with waves this nice all summer; )

Lol Im looking at my fancy waves!

Hope your all enjoying the beautiful weather.: D
