Staycation



Last weekend I had a chance to hit the only decent beach around new orleans with some coworkers. Bayou St. Louis is about an hour away from nola. The water was a little murky but the area was pretty cool.  Its a great place to relax and escape from the loud city of nola. 

I did not have much time to prepare for the trip so I just went to the closest Forever 21 and purchased these bottoms for around 18 bucks and paired them with a bra I got from Walmart years ago. Of course I had to make it my own with a custom wrap and jacket I made myself. I finised the look off with my gorgeous neckpiece from Llamia

Statement Piece

If you've noticed in most of my post I hardly wear any form of jewelry. I've always has a hard time finding  extravagent  statment pieces on a budget. Extravagent and budget dont usually go together but lately Ive been having some luck in the accessories department and its all thanks to Ebay. I had the chance to wear one of my Ebay finds this weekend for my baby sissy's graduation ceremony. She instructed us to wear  all white. I completed the look with two wide cuffs from Forever21.

I support animal print underwear




"Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Adam&eve While I was compensated to write a post about Adam&Eve , all opinions are my own."


I have always been a fan of the classic leopard print, which is why I'm thrilled it seems to be coming back in full force. For example, The Gloss called Jennifer Lawrence’s leopard print coat "The Most Surprising Trend You Can Actually Wear In 2015." Not only that, but it's one of the recent editorial picks from Steve Madden for shoes and handbags. 

Granted, animal print isn't always the most acceptable attire. So on those days when the print just won't do on the outside, wear that confidence-maker proudly underneath your clothes. Even if you don't like the "realistic" color pattern, there's plenty of print in all different tones. I alone can claim to owning a purple, leopard-print bra and a neon-blue zebra-print number.

Instead of dismissing your lingerie’s look because it’s something you don’t expect anyone to see, think of it as an extension of your outfit. You wouldn't wear outfits with the same neutral tones day in and day out, and your lingerie should be no different.

Wrap Dress Obsession


There are currently over 10 wrap style dresses in my closet to date but can you blame me? They're so comfy and sexy at the same time which is hard to find in one complete garment. But now that its much cooler in nola I must retire my collection of wrap dresses until next season. But before I place the dresses deep  in the back of my closet I wanted to post my favorite which I wore when my sister came to visit me in New Orleans for her birthday.

Second Time Around

This is my second time using this print for a garment but can you blame me? The colors on this fabric are simply amazing.  The first time I used this fabric I turned it into a two piece skirt set.
The second time around I turned this gorgeous print into a wrap dress (shout out to DVF ).

"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet."


For the past year I've been playing the waiting game when it comes to my line. After months of pattern making and packaging sampling everything is finally coming together. 

Here are separates That I plan on selling at the shop. I'm a lover of biker jackets so it was only right I created one with prints. I paired the jacket with a midi skirt and bodysuit from Boohoo.

NOLABeing

It feels like forever and a day since my last ootd post ( four months to be exact). I had to go on a hiatus from blogging & sewing so I could get settled into my new city and job. Now that I'm fully acquainted with both I'm ready to get back to work! 


 I've been living in New Orleans for 4 months and I've already fallen deeply in love with the city. But out of all the little districts through out the city French Quarter is my absolute favorite! To show my appreciation for the quarter I had to shoot my first ootd in nola here :)
