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.

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 THE CLIMB!!!

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 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…
