Dot Days!

Posted on

Hey all,
I was recently going through my closet (again :S) and I came across one of my bright and colorful summer dresses! I love this dress. The cut is great and I also love the colors as well. Another good thing is that it has STRETCH!!! And I am currently living the life of all things stretchy πŸ˜‰
I decided to squeeze myself into this dress while I still can and I felt great in it.

Another great thing about this dress is that you can dress it up or dress it down. Yay for versatile dresses!
Today I am wearing a Dollfactory by Damzels dress, vintage leather shoes and vintage denim Roebucks jacket.

Oh and I just had to show off my new ring I got as a gift from a friend! Toooo cute!

Have a great day!

Breaking The Rules!

Posted on

As some of you followers know I was told at work that I am no longer allowed to wear heels. I’m not sure how stern my warning was but I haven’t worn heels since. This is actually a problem for me as my heel collection well exceeds my flats collection. So on Friday I decided to test the waters a little and I wore a pair of vintage clogs…….clogs aren’t heels so I thought I would be safe, and no one said anything so I’m going to assume I’m in the clear for clogs πŸ˜‰
I paired them with a cute little skull dress that my sister got me for my birthday (its from H&M) and I wore a pair of denim cutoffs that I turned into maternity shorts:). The reason I wear the shorts is because I personally find that H&M dresses are quite short and when you add a baby bump into the mix its even shorter. So to save people from seeing my rump all day I played it safe with shorts πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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 😦

DIY Maternity Jeans

Posted on

Hey All,

I am not a legging person! I have never been a legging person! And I probably never will be a legging person! No offense to the people that do like leggings but they are just not for me….So when I got pregnant I had a little problem. 1) I wanted to be comfortable but didn’t want to have to wear leggings or Lulu’s for my entire pregnancy and 2) I didn’t want the jeans I bought to look like maternity jeans. So one day my husband brought my home a lovely pair of Paige Maternity Jeans and they were faaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnntastic!! I love them! But again I cant wear just one pair of jeans for my entire pregnancy and I also don’t want to spend Β $180 or more on jeans, so I inspected them and figured I would make some of my own.

Step #1

For this project you will need a pair of low rise jeans, stitch ripper, fabric scissors, matching thread, and either high stretch fabric or elastic (40mm or wider) and of course a sewing machine.

Step #1

STEP #2

When I am doing my jeans I usually take chalk and draw where I am going to cut. I cut from the top inside corner to the bottom outside corner. Β When I cutting the waistband I come in a half an inch. The reason that I do this is so I can stitch rip open the seams on the waistband and fold in the waistband to create a cleaner look at the waist.

Step 2

STEP #3

Take your pocket cut out and place it on your elastic. (Note: I used 60mm Cansew elastic and I stitched 2 peices together to make it wider to fit in my pocket) Then cut around the pocket adding a half an inch on all sides (except along the top) to provide a little seam allowance.

Step 3

Step 3_2

STEP#4

Align the elastic with the top of your waistband (fold in the 1/2 fabric you left at the beginning to make a clean edge) Start sewing in your elastic. I always start from the outside and work my way in. (Start at the outside top corner, work my way down and then across to the inside). Fold your edges in to create a cleaner looking edge. (Note: I usually use a zigzag stitch on some of Β my jeans that have a little more stretch in them as it provides a little more give with the elastic)

Step #4

And there you have it!!! Done! Put your jeans on and enjoy! πŸ™‚

Step 5 Done! DONE!

Now you can enjoy your jeans a little more comfortably and they can expand along with your growing belly.

Here is my outfit today and I am wearing a pair of the maternity jeans…..Notice? You cant even tell πŸ™‚ Today I am wearing Paige Maternity Jeans, Vans leopard print shoes, H&M cardigan, and a Rock Steady clothing shirt.

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial today and please note you don’t have to be pregnant to try this πŸ™‚ You may just have a pair of jeans that are a little too tight. This helps provide a little comfort.

Happy Sewing!

Its a “Lucy” Kind of Day!

Posted on

Hey all,
Today I woke up wanting to do something a little different with my hair. The idea quickly popped into my head that I would try the “I Love Lucy” hairstyle, as that is what most people call me at work πŸ™‚

image

My first attempt for this hairstyle. It turned out quite nice. Funny thing is no one called me “Lucy” today.

image

Today I wore a vintage dress, vintage tooled leather belt, vintage cardigan, vintage necklace and coach shoes. I think dress really complimented the hairstyle πŸ™‚

Here is a little tutorial for this hairstyle if anyone is interested in trying it.

Mary Had A Little Lamb!

Recently Ive been on the search for non terrible, belly friendly dresses to wear for the summer. I can finally say I actually found one that I love! I found it at one of my favorite stores Dollfactory by Damzels. Granted im sure its not intended for maternity wear but I just couldn’t resist πŸ™‚

This is an adorable dress by Iron Fist. This dress literally has all things great πŸ˜‰ It has little adorable lambs (some may or may not be wearing bondage) flowers, zippers, belts and studs. I absolutely love it!!! And the bodice is short enough on me that I can fit my baby bump in too! YAY!

image

I decided to do my hair in a couple victory rolls facing different directions. I think it went well with the dress πŸ™‚

And here it is!!! A close up of the adorably baaaaaaaad little lambs. By far my favorite dress so far!
