Santa Baby/MiMicItMonday Featuring:GarnerStyle

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...who am I kidding?Today is the first day of Winter and  Christmas is only a few days away and it looks and feels nothing like it. So I had to improvise. Last week I posted that every woman needs a LBD in her closet, now I have a new piece to add to that collection: a tulle skirt! I personally didn't think they would work on me...I made one prior to this and wasn't that fond of it. When I came across this tulle at Walmart I decided to give it another go. What really encouraged me to take another stab at it was my MiMicItMonday guest today GarnerStyle! I started following her earlier this year and she is amazing! The confidence she exudes in every single post and piece is encouraging to curvy girls everywhere. She will definitely make another appearance on MIM. When I saw her holiday look post a couple of weeks ago...I knew it would be perfect for MiMicItMonday. What say you? You guys think Santa may need a Sassy, Classy, Sexy, helper?  

So as I prepare to celebrate the holidays with my loved ones, I will be back next week with one final post for 2015. I am already thinking of ways to improve the blog and get better. So until next week, remember to cherish the ones that love you and as always in parting,
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 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…

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
I'm gonna make it
I will survive
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…
