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 :)

Fall Fashion Wishlist


Who says that the upcoming arrival of cooler weather has to mean that we’re stuck in drab, boring, brown clothes until next April? Not me, that’s for sure! Just because it’s starting to get a little cooler doesn't mean that I can’t stay stylish! I have a few picks for the upcoming season that’ll do double duty: keeping me warm and keeping me looking fab! Here’s what’s on my wishlist at the moment:



MEETU MAGIC HAREM PANTS (ONE STOP PLUS) // MEL FLORAL PRINTED TROUSER (BOOHOO)  // STRIPED COTTON TROUSERS (NAVABI) // SWEATSHIRT (H&M+) // FAUX-FUR VEST (H&M) // CROP TEE (H&M+)

An Ode to Keith Haring

Last November I stumbled across some amazing fabric by Keith Haring but I've been hesitant to make anything with it because its so rare to find and I knew if I made a mistake their would be no turning back. So weeks went by where I will pull out the fabric from my fabric closet stare at it for hours then just throw it back. Then finally after months of intimidation I found the courage to make the first cut into to fabric and I'm soo happy with the results.

Sneak Peek #1

I know I've been dragging the reveal of my mini line for a while now but the weather her in the DMV has not allowed me to shoot the look book for the line. So instead of making everyone wait til the snow melts I wanted showcase some of many designs and prints that will be available. So one by one I will be revealing pieces from my mini line until the reveal date  mid April.  First up is this Skirt and Blouse set which will also come in red and green for sizes small to 5x. For the outfit I felt like no accessory could do the print justice so I went with tomato red heels and matching lipstick.

Frankenstein Jacket Part 2

Wow so its been about four months since my last post! One major reason is just because I haven't been going out much. Unless you count fabric store trips and late minute runs to the store as going out. So to get out of my funk I treated myself to a night out with my sisters. Before heading out I was able to capture a few pics of my outfit.

Volupties Review

I can be a little bit of a undies fanatic so when I was asked to write a review for this specific subscription service I squealed with excitement. Volupties is a underwear subscription package for plus size woman that sends you 3 pairs of cute panties every month for just 17 bucks a month. This is a great way to try out different brands without the hassle of searching malls & eliminates the annoyance that comes with searching through underwear bins for your exact size. 


My sample package included White lace boy shorts - Torrid || Frilly Hearts Panties - Spreegirl Curves || Nude No Line boy shorts - Youmita
