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

Recent Purchases: Leather Weather

Wow! Its been a while since I've done a recent purchases post. Probably because most of my income is going to fabric, sewing notions, and student loans. But lately some of my money has been going to revamping my wardrobe. The past four years I've spent the fall & the winter seasons on a college campus in sweats, leggings, and over sized hoodies. Now that I've graduated my nights are no longer spent in the library but in the city so I had to do a little shopping to adjust to my environment.  Here's a little peek of the items currently in my shopping cart. 


QUILTED ZIP FRONT PENCIL SKIRT (SIMPLYBE) // Fur jacket (SIMPLYBE) // Wang tee (eBAY)// PU fronted tee (SIMPLYBE) // CHUNKY chain cuff bracelet (DOROTHY pERKINS) // The Malice Shoe (KARMALOOP) // Cobalt Clutch (SIMPLYBE) //AX Paris PU Skater Skirt (SIMPLYBE)

Tartan Love

 Tartan tartan tartan, you gotta love the stuff. First glance this outfit may look like I've lost my mind and decided to wear my pajamas out in public.  But I swear these are not my pajamas! I was inspired by Kelly B. of And I Get Dressed and Nicolette of NicoletteMason.com . I loved how both ladies styled the ASOS Longline jacket and had to get my hands on some Tartan! I ended up going on a little tartan spree but its all good. My original plan was to wear the plaid coat with this outfit but it was a little too much, even for me. I ended up paring the plaid set with my new favorite biker jacket and leopard heels.

Blog Nostalgia | Indecorous Taste

I don't know what it is but this morning has me feeling pretty nostalgic. I'm always being asked what inspired me to start blogging or designing so starting today I will showcase bloggers that influenced me and took apart of molding me into the person I am today .You definitely cannot find blogs like these around the web anymore. The blogs of these ladies would have me up at 3 am when I know damn well  I had to wake up at 6 am to catch the school bus. I remember scrolling through their entire blogs on a daily basis. Yes, their entire blogs! It was seriously an addiction. But I can honestly say that if not for these talented women I would not have picked up blogging or even continued designing. My original intent for this post was to display all of the lovely ladies at one time but  decided it would be better to showcase the blogs one at a time every Thursday for Throwback Thursday til I have displayed them all. 

First up is my all time favorite Indecorous Taste ran by Lauren Tennenbaum.  I discovered Lauren's blog during my first year in college. During that time I was just fiddling with fashion and wasn't sure exactly where I wanted to go with my talent. So I resorted to browsing the web for some ideas and that's when I ran into Indecorous Taste. What I love so much about Lauren is you can't just place her in one category. She excels in fashion, interior design, and shes also an amazing painter. Following her blog all these years taught me not to put limits on the talents God has graced me with. While in college I began taking classes in drawing, ceramics, and sculpture basically any class where I could make use of my creativity
Although Lauren has not posted since February of 2012 you can view her recent works  at laurentennenbaum.com
