My weekend with Melky Jean...
What a weekend it was!!! I was able to reconnect with a high school alum and had the opportunity to showcase some of my designs and be a blessing to a group of young women in one felt swoop. I had the honor and privilege of being invited to participate in the Carma Foundation annual makeovers. It was my very first time in this of atmosphere and it was amazing. The young ladies got the royal treatment, from sew-ins, full make up, and 2-3 new outfits. I was surrounded by so many extremely talented women and got to see what it was like to be a stylist. As if that wasn't enough Melky gave me some encouraging words that she has no idea changed my life! Thanks again Melky for the opportunity! And I love that Tickled Pink Maxi on you!

#MiMicItMonday:Featuring Mimi G
I knew when I saw this look on Tieko and Mimi's blog...I had to have it! I used Mimi's Simplicity 1283 to create the top. Mimi opted for a crop top effect, however the way my non existent abs are set up I added a few inches to lengthen the top. (And lining up those stripes gave me fever LOL). Now Ms. Mimi bought her skirt from Forever 21 and I created my skirt using New Look 6314. The pattern called for a waistband and side zipper, however I decided to just use the skirt from the pattern and created my own high waisted waistband and added some buttons for flavor!
As always my loves and until next time,
Keep it Sassy,Classy, Sexy, Period.
