#MiMicitMonday: Featuring Teiraney J

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend...I most certainly did! I got some work done in my sewing space (LaLa Land). I cleaned out my closet to prepare for new creations and to be a blessing to someone. I also got some other work done but I'll save that for another post! I had a chat with a friend from college and we're working on something super fun, can't wait to share that with you guys also! 


Today's #MiMicItMonday inspiration comes from a very nice young lady I came across on her YouTube channel, Her name is Teiraney J and her motto is "Life's A Runway". I've been dying to do this tutorial since she posted it last holiday season. Now its obvious Teiraney lives in a warmer climate but I made it work! Of course I had to add my own little twist by adding pockets, a longer sleeve and I opted for a boat neck instead of a scoop neck. I also switched up between boots and a bootie and a leather jacket. I am a very visual learner, and I am working on creating with more commercial patterns (McCalls, Simplicity, Vogue,...) In the meantime, I get practice watching and executing tutorials. Teiraney does a great job of giving you a super cute look with her tutorials. I don't think this will be her only appearance on #MiMicItMonday...hope she likes it! If you are interested in trying out Teiraney's swing dress just in time for the holidays check out the video link below.

Until next time my loves,
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy, Period.


  1. Love the way you made it all yours. The twist with the longer sleeves and the shorter boots. Continue to inspire.

  2. Nice job, Lawana! You have the prettiest smile.

  3. Nice you should shirt how you made yours

Climbing my way back/My Favorite 17 looks of 2017!

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming
There's a voice inside my head saying,
You'll never reach it...

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels,
Lost with no direction
My faith was shaking,
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high...

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
There's always gonna  be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose,
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waiting on the other side...

It's been a looooooong time since I last blogged, I've had a whole lot going on. When I first started the blog, it was for the main purpose of showcasing my sewing, however I discovered there are other layers to me besides sewing. Sewing has become a very huge part of my life since started way back in 2013. If you're new to the blog check out my very first post HERE!!!

Since I've been away for awhile, I thought I would post my 17 favorite l…

#FlashbackFriday!!!!/My most FAVORITE FABRIC FIND EVER!!!!

Before I jump into this #FlashbackFriday let me bring you guys up to speed... What a couple of weeks I’ve had!! You know when I started this blogging journey; I didn’t really know what I was getting into. Sewing is my sanity and if I didn’t have it, I might go absolutely mad! Since September I essentially was working 3 jobs (yes 3 jobs) Before Care, Day Job, and After Care. Now while this all took place in one location…I was drained working from 7am to 6pm. I started to notice that let alone was I not having enough time to blog; I was too exhausted to sew! My son who has Autism was doing okay at first but then started to have more frequent meltdowns. I also was in preparation to send my daughter back off to complete her senior year of college with financially issues!! So who do you think had a meltdown next? That would be me and I was not “Tickled Pink” about it! I had to do some reevaluating.

While I’m sure a lot of you might be saying “Show Me The Money”, I had to make a decision an…

I'm a Survivor!!!!!

I'm a survivor
I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop
I'm gon' work harder
I'm a survivor

Keep on survivin'- Destiny's Child

I am the epitome of "I don't look like what I've been through", Weighing in a 3 lbs 5 ounces and 3 months premature I was born a survivor. My hope for this blog is to be a beacon of light and hope for someone that doesn't think they can make it... YOU CAN!! I am far from where I want to be, but right where I need to be!
I've been working really hard over the last few weeks to get this blog off the ground...and what better season than Fall, where the weather and fashion can change like the color of leaves...

I know you must be thinking "Why now? Why at this time?" Well, I will tell you why, there is a reason why I did indeed pick this particular time and "SEASON" to share…
