Stripes Gone Wild

This summer while spending most of my time in DC I noticed a lot of woman walking around in matching  Blazer & Shorts sets. I've looked everywhere for a set my size but had no luck.  But I was determined to have my own  so I turned to sewing. I purchased some fabric and patterns from Ebay and got to work. Here are the results, hope you like it :)

Matching Blazer & Shorts Set | Made By Amarachi Ukachu



Silver Rings | ASOS  (I wear a size 9 and ordered these in an XL, they are huge! If your ring size is a 9-10 I recommend  buying the L) 
Wild Cat Strappy Heels  | GoJane.com
White Tank & Clutch | H&M

  12. wow, that is some great sewing skills gurl! i can relate to seeing something, wanting it and cant finding it and at the end of the day having to make it yourself. Although my sewing isnt the greatest, seeing an outfit like that just makes me wanna try that much harder. and just fyi, loooove the hair!
