My weekend with Melky Jean & #MiMicItMonday Featuring:Mimi G

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.

#MiMicItMonday Featuring KIerra Sheard!

Happy Monday folks!!! So anyone who has been following my blog knows that I enjoy #MiMicItMonday! It's where I get inspiration from everywhere and I make an attempt to recreate the look. Let me first say that I have been a huge fan of KIerra Sheard since she was a little girl. I have loved watching her evolution especially in the fashion world.
 She started https://myeleven60.com/ and embraced the hashtag #LuvMyThick and at times that WAS hard for me to do, if you can believe it! Through my sewing and learning I am indeed Loving My Thick! I came across the peplum top yesterday on facebook on Kierra's page and I knew I had the perfect fabric to pull this off...Well here is KiKi"s and here's mine...let me know what you guys think!

To create this look I used McCalls 7021 for the top and Simplicity 1019 for the pants









So until next time,  Learn to Love Your Thick, and  Keep it Sassy, Class, Sexy, Period.

#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…

Valentine's Day Weekend!!!

I've been gone for a minute but I'm back to business!! What a weekend I had, which happened to be a 4-day weekend along with Valentine's Day. Now while I personally am a hopeless romantic, I haven't had a more amazing weekend than the one I just shared.

Now a little monkey wrench tried to wreck my weekend but my guy wouldn't allow it, and thank goodness for him. He gave me the room to be upset for a little while when we discovered someone has been stealing my photos and taking credit for my work. I didn't know whether to be flattered or insulted at first but insulted, disgusted, frustrated, and flat out pissed off won for a moment.

 But as we were driving to our destination (a secret to me, a surprise from him) it started to subside when I saw the lovely mountains of the Poconos,I had never been there! And it was amazing! Our wonderful weekend started in the city on Friday night  to see "Misery" on Broadway with Bruce Willis and Laurie Metcalf...boy i…
